Doula Enita: Nurturing doula services

Birth and Postpartum Services and Support

My Story
Who I Am
Hi! I'm Enita, proud homeschooling mom of 3. After having a hospital birth that didn't turn out exactly as I wanted, I started delving into the world of information on natural birth, reading everything and anything. I had questions that were unanswered, most of them along of the lines of "Why didn't I know that?" or "Why didn't someone tell me this?". This was just reinforced when I became pregnant again, realizing that the information and options we are given are normally the options they are comfortable/used to giving, and not necessarily the only ones there are. I decided that for this birth, I would love to have a doula that can not only help me emotionally and with non-pharmaceutical pain relief options , but also advocate for what I want and try and help me achieve this. I had a beautiful, restorative birth, exactly how I wanted it (You can read both my experiences under the "Birth Story" tab: Reuben and Ané)! This made me decide that I would like to help moms achieve this for themselves. As a doula, I would love to help you get more information, make your wishes known, and try to help you have the birth that you want. Give me a call or whatsapp that we can meet up and see if we, together with your partner, would make a good birthing team. I am fluent in Afrikaans, English and the grunts, groans and gestures of labour.

Contact Me

Areas of service are Strand, Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Grabouw, Rooi-Els, Pringle Bay and Betty's Bay, but contact me if your area is not listed.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Zoom meetings will be held, if you so choose, and virtual support will be given during the birth, so the geographical area is not as important as before.
