BIO: My name is Helen Herzig, and I am the Aussie Doula. I am a mum to five children aged from 5 to 16. I am originally from Australia and have been living here in Charlotte for the last nine years, and feel fortunate to call it home. I have had five natural births, both in the home and hospital setting, and breast feed all five of my children. My path to becoming a doula was quite an accidental one. I witnessed the birth of my nephew 17 years ago and was struck with the amazing capability and power of birth. I then became the go-to person when friends were wanting a maternal support in addition to their husbands or partners. I didn’t even know what a doula was. Then a few years ago, another dear friend asked if I would support her as her doula. It was a pivotal moment when I decided on her request that “you should be doing this for other moms, you are a natural”. So began my path to my doula career. I have been serving families in the Charlotte area for the last 3 years. I have attended all kinds of births and feel that a mother should be supported in her birth journey, whatever that may be. I have served families in natural, epidural, VBAC and caesarean births. I am familiar with the area hospitals, and have a great working relationship with many providers. I would love to accompany you along in your birth journey.
Services: I am a certified birth doula with Prodoula and I am also trained in Postpartum doula care. I also offer placental encapsulation services.
Areas: I serve all the hospitals in the Greater Charlotte Area, as well as Cabarrus County and Huntersville.
