HAVE WE MET?
Hi, I’m Karli!
Mama to 2, lover of wit and good fun, wave-rider and sunrise-addict.
I’m a birth & postpartum doula, and human rights activist. I’m really passionate about creating better birth for everyone, everywhere, all the time - and I’m deadset committed to making it happen through working with individual clients and big-scale advocacy. I love working with women and birthing families to explore and experience all things birth.
And, I have to admit, I’ve run into some sticky situations over my years of birth work, with some pretty clear flags and drivers that I’ve learned to identify and mitigate. I think every birth worker should be prepared for the awkward, scary stuff, and I don’t see anyone talking about it - so I’m excited to team up with Jessie to bring this into light.
And I’m Jessie!
A mama of 4, pun lover, saviour of rescue chickens and mad lover of the Spice Girls.
And, I’m a birth-worker and biz mentor, here to soulfully support others in their highest vision of birth.
Over the years, I’ve worked hard to consistently build & strengthen my business.
And for the most part, I’ve been lucky enough to be invited into the journeys of some incredible women and families as they navigate the adventure of pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
I know this work is where my purpose lies, and I am bat-shit passionate about continuing to show up and serve in this realm!
And, you know what else (probably something you won’t hear many birth workers being transparent about), I’ve also worked with a small minority of humans who weren’t aligned with my values or services. But, my solidified business practices allowed me to steer everyone involved through these situations, resulting in fair outcomes for all.
Birth workers are needed! And in order to keep showing up, we need to have a sustainable business. So I’m here to guide other birth workers to achieving this. And with Karli as my wing-womban, we know this masterclass is going help you!
We’ve been in the birth-biz for a combined time of 8 years, and supported over 80 births between us!
And you know what else?
We’ve had our share our lessons. Some of them were kinda gnarly.
We’ve learnt there is SO much more to it than just thinking a good contract and working with a dream client is enough for everything to stay peachy.
And we’re bringing our lessons to you in this 2 hour, epic masterclass.
Birthing people of the world NEED you.
They need a doula who is passionate, committed and present.
And, in order to be all those things, you need a solid business to support you.
We’ve all heard of birth worker burn out, right?
Well, if you haven’t got your ducks in a row in terms of contracts, boundaries, expectation setting & management and risk mitigation, then you can book yourself a one way ticket to burn out.
YOU ARE NEEDED.
Your gifts, guidance, experience and support is meant to be given.
Don’t stifle or sabotage it because you haven’t tied these essential ends up within your business.
Instead, you can thrive within your sustainable business, because you did the work, got some skin in the game, and took care of yourself, your biz and in turn, your clients!
We can’t wait to see you in there!
Karli & Jessie
