Eleanor | Newcastle Doula

To have support is to know that whatever your journey brings, and wherever it takes you, there is someone on your side — to hold space, to listen, to validate, and to care.

Hi, I’m Eleanor

Passionate about all things women’s health, birth, pregnancy, and postpartum, I am what some would label a ‘birth nerd’. It is my greatest hope that as a Doula I can educate and empower birthing people, and their partners, through the wondrous but sometimes confusing, challenging, and overwhelming time that is pregnancy, labour and birth.

“I found out about Eleanor through her work as a physio.. early on I had made the conscious decision to wrap as much support around me as I could being a first time mum. I decided that I would do the birth preparation course for my Husband and I. We had our initial zoom then an in person visit and Eleanor was just incredible. Her wealth of knowledge was absolutely mind blowing. She went through everything I needed to know with such care for detail in every scenario and situation making sure that I knew what I could ask for and do while in labour. My husband found this visit so helpful and it was so reassuring how included he was in this process as he would be the one supporting me through my labour. A few short days later I had to be induced due to foetal distress, while this was a scary process- through the whole labour and delivery my husband and I knew what was happening and the knowledge to respond to the changing situation. I honestly couldn't have been able to have a mentally and physically successful delivery if I did not have her give me the courage and knowledge from Eleanor and for this I will always be thankful.”

“I can’t thank Eleanor enough for the education she provided us as we prepared for our first baby. Eleanor is knowledgeable, passionate and provides information in a way that is easy to understand. Birth can be so scary as a first time parent but Eleanor was able to give us information in a way that made us feel comfortable and at ease. The best thing was that the things she taught us were so easy to recall during the labour so we felt empowered the whole time. Eleanor knows things that we never would have thought to ask! I would recommend her to every parent starting their pregnancy and birth journey.”

“Eleanor is simply amazing when it comes to guiding expectant parents through the journey of childbirth and understanding women’s bodies. Talking to her was like reconnecting with a dear old friend who happens to be an expert in this field. What truly impressed us was how comfortable both my partner and I felt in her presence. Eleanor created a safe space where we could openly ask any question without fear of judgement. She patiently laid out all the information on the table, leaving no card unturned. We appreciate her genuine support and thorough explanations, which have truly empowered us in this beautiful phase of our lives. This was our second child and I understood things that I didn’t have idea with my first, this information was so empowering to have! We got an amazing second time delivery and I’m sure she played a key role in it! 🤍✨”

“My husband and I completed a birth education session with Eleanor in preparation for the birth of our first child, and my word was it so incredibly thorough and informative! Eleanor went above and beyond in ensuring we had the knowledge to make informed, evidence-based decisions during our antenatal care and labour and was very generous with her time, kindly answering additional questions we had along the way. She also provided us with some written resources that we could refer back to around birth preparation and labour. Because of Eleanor’s input, we felt empowered in the choices we made in advocating for myself and our little boy during labour when things took a turn away from ‘ideal’, and that in itself is priceless. We would definitely recommend tapping into Eleanor’s wisdom and experience in the birthing space with her birth education support, particularly if you are pregnant with your first bub or wanting to feel more informed for a subsequent pregnancy.”

“Having Eleanor help prepare us for birth was the best decision I made. She was able to help us with concerns we had specific to our situation. Eleanor came to our home and helped prepare us for our birth by helping us with a birth “map”, showed us hands on strategies for my husband to support me during labour, and she gave us a number of useful products, tools and resources to help us prepare. I had the most amazing, positive birth experience because Eleanor helped me understand “pain with a purpose”, she instilled confidence in me that my body was “designed to birth”. Her birth map exercise was incredibly helpful to ensure I was educated on all the potential things that could occur during labour and made me feel confident in my choices around each and every possible thing that might occur. My OB and midwife in my labour later said they were impressed with my birth map which Eleanor helped me create. Eleanor was there at the drop of a hat for any questions or concerns I had. I have and will continue to recommend her to any of my pregnant friends. I can’t thank you enough Eleanor for being a part of our birth story!”

“Eleanor knows her stuff! I met up with her when I was 35 weeks pregnant with a "big baby". I had an induction booked which I felt nervous about. She helped me understand the process and create a birth map for induction as well as spontaneous labour. The conversation with Eleanor was a great mix of information, strategies, stories, and reassurance. She answered all my questions and then some! I ended up going in to spontaneous labour and with the strategies we had discussed had a really positive birth experience. Now I just have her voice in my head telling me how important postpartum rest is!”
