Specific Disclaimer

This disclaimer relates to the postpartum care and support and mental health peer support both for in-home (in person) care and Telehealth care.

I am a qualified doula and a mental health peer support person.

For my in person support, I deliver my services at your home or at a location (cafe) that we agree upon during the booking process. I offer a free 1/2hour consult prior to booking any paid sessions. This is to provide both yourself and I to see if we would like to continue and to build trust.. After booking a package, we will organise a time to chat over the phone, in person, or email to map out our sessions and discuss your goals and any concerns. If you need to reschedule a particular session, I require 24 hours notice except in the cases where you or your baby may be ill or otherwise affected by unforeseen circumstances. This will be at my discretion.

Appointments cancelled within a 24 hour period may be forfeited at my discretion.

Because your health is my priority, if I am ill or otherwise unable to attend, I will reschedule your session at a mutually suitable time.

I may provide links to other websites and programs. This does not necessarily imply sponsorship, endorsement, approval, or arrangement between Motherhood Village and the owners of those websites. I take no responsibility for any of the content found on the linked websites. When I link to a third party, I am making a recommendation only and I accept no responsibility for any information or advice provided to you directly by the third party.

Motherhood Village Rights and Responsibilities

The role of a Postpartum Professional is to provide emotional and practical support to families when a new baby is born. In order to empower new parents in their choices, a postpartum professional may provide evidence-based information regarding basic baby care and normal breastfeeding. A postpartum professional will always make referrals where appropriate and never gives advice. Please be aware that the generalised information Motherhood Village provides is not a substitute for specialist advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

The role of a Mental Health Peer Support is to provide support and empathy to a client from a lived experience background. Please note that Peer Support is not a replacement for Medical Advice. A peer support worker uses personal experience of mental health to assist others going through a crisis. They communicate their stories skilfully and work with therapists and other mental health professionals to aid their client's recovery.
