You are in caring hands...
I am Amanda Spakowski, founder of The Nesting Place and one of our birth doulas and prenatal instructors. I think childbirth is a transformative life event that can influence how you feel about yourself for years after your delivery.

Site of the Month!
At Sunny Mummy, they make it easier for you to experience a little rejuvination so that you can feel rested, patient and present for yourself and your family.

Couple that with drop off child care during the week while you cruise Queen West for coffee and a new outfit and you've got a recipe for a happy parent!
