Birth Stories:

Lara Robyn Smith

Lara Robyn Smith born in Cape Town at Constantiaberg Clinic.

Born at 17 h 17 on the 17th January 2011.

I arrived in Cape Town to do Lara ‘s birth and she took her time and kept Nina on the hop.  We waited many days until Dr Caro Nel (gynaecologist) decided that her head was not going down into the pelvis so she arranged a c-section for 17h00 that same day.  What a relief!

Lara was born with much love in the theatre and she was a good weight and size.  The time of  her birth was 17h17 on the 17th January 2011.   Nina s family were at the hospital and they saw her immediately after the c section.  Nina and Richard had their little girl to love.

I helped Nina for the first few days in the hospital and had time to hold and love Lara while Nina had a good sleep.  She breast fed well and I left Cape Town to fly back to KZN leaving a beautiful family.


From Mum and Dad -  Smith

Thanks for all your help and support over the last few days Ginny. Could not have done it without you.

You are so knowledgeable and understanding. Love Nina and Richard.

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
