Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia
Hi, I'm Emma from Wholehearted Birth.
I’m a Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum Doula and Placenta Specialist, supporting birthing families on the Gold Coast (Queensland Australia).
To me, Wholehearted Birth means an undeniable trust in our body’s intrinsic ability to give birth. It is a recognition that we hold the power and expertise when it comes to birthing our babies. It is a reverence for the initiation into motherhood and the transformation of self and our role in society.
I’m here for you as you navigate this incredible journey of what it means to birth new life.
By inviting me on your sacred journey, I aim to educate, inspire and empower you to embrace your inner wisdom. Guiding you with love, support and the continuity of care that you so deserve.
I care deeply that you birth on your terms, I honour you and your choices.
One of my favourite ways to support families in the postpartum period is by tending to the placenta. Giving reverence to the powerful symbol of birth, spirituality, motherhood, fertility and life.
As a Mumma myself, who has reaped the rewards of my own placenta, I can definitely recommend that you are on the right track to optimising your postpartum journey.
I offer three methods of placenta encapsulation, including the Traditional Method, the Raw Start Method and Half and Half - for the Mumma's who want to be intuitively led by how they are feeling on any given day.
My packages also come with additional add-ons including a placenta tincture, framed placenta print and a beautiful gold or natural cord keepsake.
I am on-call for collecting your placenta from 38 weeks until baby is born, and offer text, email and phone support to answer any questions you may have. I also offer flexible payment options and only require a $50 deposit to secure the booking for your birth month. I am discreet in my collection of the placenta and drop off of the finished package - much like a fairy working behind the scenes. All processing is completed to the highest standard of sanitisation and care within my dedicated workspace and I include a gentle cleanse ritual to honour the life-giving beauty of this special organ.
If you would like to know more about how I can tend to your placenta, please see my offerings on my website or follow along with me over at Instagram @wholehearted.birth
