We recognise individuals present with a varied and complex array of issues related to pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. Our counselling and psychological therapies are designed to help you find workable solutions so you can start making the most of everyday.
Birth Doula Support
It is an honour and a privilege to support a woman and her partner through the birth of their child. Our emotional and practical supports begin during pregnancy and continues throughout your labour and into your early weeks as a parent.
We are committed to providing awareness of perinatal issues within the community. Here you will find articles written by us on pregnancy, birth and the challenges faced by new parents. You can also find links to other services committed to helping families during this period in their lives..

ABOUT NARELLE HORWITZ
Psychologist, Doula & Childbirth Educator
Narelle’s unique mix of training as a psychologist, doula and childbirth educator (and experience as a mother of two) provides her with an in depth understanding of the needs of pregnant women and new mothers. She believes in the importance of evidence based interventions and values every woman as an individual with their own life experience and hopes for the future.
Prior to gaining employment exclusively in the Child and Family sector in 2006, her early career established her broader understanding and provided experience in working with conditions which may impact on but are not exclusive to the perinatal period. This includes issues such as drug and alcohol addiction, mental health, domestic violence and survivors of trauma and abuse.
With the births of her own children she became increasingly aware of the multitude of challenges faced by women through pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period which lead her to pursue further training in the birth field as a doula and childbirth educator.
Narelle is empathetic, warm and dedicated to helping her clients find workable solutions to their concerns.
