feel confident & empowered

to give birth on your own terms

Kate Vivian childbirth educator Perth

I’m Kate

A childbirth educator, Hypnobirthing Australia Practitioner and birth and postpartum doula, I’m, most importantly, a mum of three. It was the stereotypical horror story birth of my first baby that led me down a path of education. Of knowing there had to be a better way to have a baby. And of my finding my voice. And it led me to two more incredible births. Births that were empowering and transformative. The type of births we should see in the movies. I work with Mums and Mums-to-be to help you feel educated and empowered to give birth and journey into parenthood on your terms.

Postpartum Doula

Start your journey into motherhood feeling calm, confident and connected. Let me bring the village of old to you (minus the judgement and the ‘should do’s from Aunty Joan). As a postpartum doula, I will support you as you settle into life as a new mum, helping you as you find the best way forward for yourself and your new baby.

You’ll learn so much about pregnancy and birthing, that you’ll feel empowered by that knowledge, especially if you want to be actively involved in the decision-making process of your birth! The techniques learnt have helped me prepare and confidently birth without fear.
