- Letting go, and allowing the energy of birth to move through you, and welcoming your new baby in total safety, awe and love.
- Making choices that honour your inner wisdom, instinct and knowing.
- Powerfully asserting your needs in every moment, because you’re deeply connected to what’s best for you and your baby.
- Having ownership and autonomy over your birth experience. So at the end you can declare triumphantly, “I did it”.
- Feeling the most powerful you’ve ever felt and this being your foundation for motherhood.
IT’S YOUR BIRTH RIGHT TO EXPERIENCE
BIRTH LIKE THIS
As a former Lawyer, now Doula, Yoga teacher, Kinesiologist, and mother, I lovingly support you as you prepare for birth, on your terms. The preparation we do is deep and meaningful.
Expect to explore your subconscious, face uncomfortable questions, and excavate who you are and how you’re showing up in this experience. I don’t do superficial, surface level preparation, and I’m not a ‘hand holding’ doula. Of course, I do typical things like hip squeezes, tie your hair back, get you food and water and tend to the environment being ambient.
The real foundation for you having the birth you imagine is in the work you do, and we do, together, before birth.
I provide support for birthing women at home, in hospitals (public and private) and at birth centres. I live on 40 acres of beautiful land in Brunkerville NSW, Australia, which is halfway between Newcastle city and the Central Coast. I service the Newcastle/Hunter Valley and Central Coast areas.
I have supported home births, hospital births and birth centre births.
I will support you to connect to the sacredness of the birthing process, as you bring the soul of your baby down to earth. I’m committed to supporting you to navigate the system to make informed decisions that respect your rights and honour your instinct.
Truly empowered, woman-centered birth and postpartum is your right, and, it’s the antidote for healing humanity and mother earth.
IT ALL BEGINS AT BIRTH.
There are a variety of ways you can work with me to prepare for birth and your postnatal period.
I offer birth mentoring and birth support packages with differing levels of support for birth and postnatally, or for postnatal care only.
I also offer prenatal birth ready sessions if you want to prepare for birth with my support, but don’t feel you need a doula at your birth.
Or, if you’ve had your baby already, have only just found me, and would like to receive some devoted mothering and care, my Mothering the Mother – Energy Closing Ceremony can help you integrate your birth experience. This ceremony is deeply honouring and can be taken at any time after birth, it might be 3 weeks, 3 months, or 3 years after your birth experience.

“One hot tip I give to new mums to be? A doula! WOW. Clancy Allen – a soul so gentle it passes through the birthing Mum to the gentle birth and now gentle baby I kid you not! Clancy was a godsend. From kinesiology to essential oils. From bringing coffee to making my breaky! Acupressure points to yoga! I can not recommend Clancy enough. Thank you Clancy, you are now forever in our lives and I couldn’t be more grateful. Furthermore, has a way with the new dads to be… very important”.
“Clancy was my doula but I probably should say our family’s doula. It wasn’t just me, it was also my hubby and my 2 year old daughter. She was there for all of us with her calm presence every time.
Firstly I want to say, without Clancy I wouldn’t have my amazing beautiful and empowering home birth. She was the one who introduced me with homebirth midwives. I will be forever thankful for that to you, Clancy!
Yoga, meditation, mother ceremonies, essential oils- all these beautiful things we did with Clancy’s expertise, she has a natural talent and spirituality.
When it was time for important decision-making, she always provided me with the best articles and resources to read. It was very reassuring knowing her good intuition and experience. Having Clancy as a doula was like having a safety net during pregnancy and labour. She is the type of person who spreads good energy and calm vibes, she’s also a savvy woman who knows what it takes to birth your baby naturally and the way you want it.
She is a person to trust easily and she will be ready to go above and beyond to support you because Clancy is born to be a doula.”
