My name is Kris Pedder and I founded Beautiful Bellies Doula Care because I believe that every woman deserves to be supported and guided on this journey by a caring hand. The love, care and respect you receive, the opportunity to discover your own strength, and the fact that you are the central figure, making decisions, with the help and support of your caregivers, will create a positive birth experience.
I have experienced with my own babies how, between medical care on the one hand, and the support provided by family and friends, there can be a huge gap when it comes to support in labour- and this process begins in pregnancy and continues after birth-. Not many women are fortunate enough to get consistent, continuous support from birth professionals and quite often women are not given the confidence to have the birth experience that they deserve.
"I am really glad I had Kris as a doula at the birth of our daughter. I truly appreciated her professionalism, her patience, and her caring nature. I will never be able to forget the help and care I received from her. I truly believe that I would not have received such care even in my mother's presence."
