Birth Stories:

Cullen Giles

Tammy and Allan came to see me for their first baby Bryden and his birth was natural. Now Tammy was having her second baby boy and knowing a lot more than a first time Mum.

labour started on a weekend and Tammy knew the ropes.  We all went down to Medi Clinic and active labour had began. With no medication Tammy chose to stay in the shower on a birth ball with the relief of the hot water on her lower back.

Dr Amod was in Johannesburg which was disappointing but to our delight she had already landed at King Sharka so she arrived after an hour.  This was not a problem as Tammy still had a way to go.

after a short time Tammy felt the urge to push so I asked the midwife to see how she was progressing and she told us that Tammy still needed more time.

before I could turn around I noticed the baby s head making an appearance. The midwife jumped into action and the baby was born without Dr Amod.  This sadden me as she was only minutes away and could easily have been there for Tammy.

The birth was quick and Tammy and Allan have a healthy little boy  "Cullen".

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.
