Since my last Doula Cafe, I’ve been at 4 labours.  All in one week in fact – my busiest week so far!  Thankfully everyone was at Aiiku, which was good for the 2 back-to-back labours I had!  October to early Nov is always a busy time of year for labours and this year was no exception!

My Breathing for Birth classes have been going well since starting them in September.  I’ll be updating with continued dates soon, but they’ll continue to be on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month.

I’m also going to be adding some new services soon.  They will include Belly Casting, and night-time newborn support.  I’ll post about it once these have been added!

New Services and Next Doula Cafe!

Happy New Year!!  2016 year of the Monkey looks set to be a great one 🙂

I had my first Doula Cafe back in December and it was great!  6 lovely ladies came and it was fun to talk about things related to birth plans.

The next Doula Cafe will be on Wednesday 13th of January and it’s free to join!  It will be at the Tokyu Plaza Starbucks (6th floor) in Harajuku.  The Tokyu Plaza is on the Meiji Dori crossing.

The theme of this get-together will be anxieties surrounding birth and how we can lessen or overcome them.

There is no need to rsvp and simply turning up is fine, although it would be helpful if you did email me to let me know if you hope to join (here).

Also, I have been planning some new services to support those pregnant in Japan.  As well as more classes/lessons/help for those in and around Tokyo, I’m also starting a service to offer birth preparation classes in other areas in Japan.  Please take a look at my updated Services and Fees page to find out what’s new!

Thanks and I look forward to meeting more of you in 2016!
