Mother | Founder | Trauma-informed Doula
Chantel's passion for birth work was ignited by her own traumatic birth experience and severe postpartum depression. Forced into a cesarean during labour, she made the courageous decision to switch doctors at the eleventh hour and welcomed her daughter safely into the world (vaginally!). This experience deepened her commitment to protecting couples' birth experiences through education and awareness.
She wears multiple hats and combines her experience as a Mother, women's coach, parent coach, trauma-informed somatic practitioner, bodyworker, womb therapist and shamanic breathwork meditation facilitator into her practice.
She knows firsthand the challenges and struggles that can arise during pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood, and she's committed to supporting and empowering couples on their own journey
A holistic approach that encompasses mind, heart, body & soul connection
Chantel's approach is rooted in compassion, empathy, and a deep understanding of the mental, emotional, physical and energetic aspects of the body.
She integrates somatic practices and breathwork, connecting with the mind, heart and body. She's passionate about helping couples understand their triggers and support their nervous system, connect more deeply with each other, raise awareness for perinatal mental health, reduce birth trauma, and break generational trauma.
Chantel believes that we all have the ability to create ripple effects of change in this world and it all starts from looking within ourselves

Carita believes in the power of healing and nurturing touch. Through her bodywork, many of her clients have found healing by reconnecting with themselves, releasing pain, stress, tension and emotional blockages. She’s also supported many women on their pre and post-pregnancy journeys with her loving pregnancy lomilomi massage.
Lomilomi is a Hawaiian massage technique that goes beyond simple massage strokes. It embodies the 7 Huna Principles and teaches that physical healing happens when the mental/emotional and spiritual realms are balanced and in harmony.
Her interest in the human body and her desire to give her clients the best treatments have led her to study various therapies including Zenthai Shiatsu, Thai Yoga massage, Visionary Cranialsacral, Access Bars, Reiki. She’s also a certified NLP, Hypnotherapy & Life Coach and Yoga teacher (Power Yoga, Yin, Pre and Postnatal).
She offers pre and postpartum care massages to women. Carita currently works between Australia and Singapore.
Our philosophy focuses on connection through self-discovery with ourselves and our partners, bodywork using movement and therapy, integration of evidence-based information and holistic approach and acceptance of your new body, role and relationship
Our experiences shape the way we see the world, how we bond with our partners and how we parent our children. Our practice focuses on self-discovery and inner healing, to bring out the best version of ourselves for our family. We emphasize the importance of building a strong, healthy relationship with yourself and your partner.
Using movement, touch therapy, massages and modalities from Optimal Maternal Positioning® and Spinning Babies®, we help you prepare your body for childbirth and learn how to navigate roadblocks during labour that may affect labour progression. We believe in using bodywork through yoga and breathing to rehabilitate your strength post birth.
We combine evidence-based knowledge to help you make informed choices. Together with a holistic approach, we bring together Eastern and Western practices to help you on your postpartum recovery journey.
The birth of a baby signifies the birth of a parent - we are here to help you embody your roles as parents and your relationship dynamics as partners. We provide emotional and mental support through holistic therapy and coaching. We want birthing warriors to embrace their new body and celebrate.
