Here's the big secret...
We're not meant to do this baby thing alone.
We don't need mountains of stuff and gadgets.
We need confidence, we need encouragement, we need community.
We don't need judgemental "advice" and unsolicited horror stories.
We need empathetic suggestions, we need practical help while we navigate into our new bodies, roles, identities.
I'm Pamela Bethel, a Victoria-based birth & postpartum doula. I'm also a childbirth and breastfeeding educator. I'm here to ease your transition into the brave new world of parenting.
Welcome to this remarkable season of your life!
Her knowledge, compassion, calm energy and kind spirit held space for our family.
Pamela has a casual yet clear presence and a great sense of humour.
It was a tremendous help, as the father-to-be, to have Pamela to call.
