OM Doula profiles

Support can show through in many forms. In the birth world we recognise that the birth of a child is also the birth of a mother. Quite often then, the life changing experience leads many to find what they feel is their true calling and purpose in life just as it was for Founder Ginny Phang-Davey. These amazing souls have stepped into their own in their decision to become a Doula.

At Four Trimesters we take great pride in working alongside these wonderful caring women who under our mentoring program and aligned with a knowledgeable and supportive team behind them, they are ready to provide you with an affordable and supportive experience for your upcoming birth.

Here are some of our amazing team below....

About me

A woman, wife and mother of one, I see a life full of challenges which I love to tackle with passion and determination.

Self- accomplishment is very important for me, trying to put a meaningful sense in everything I do even the very little things.

I believe that happiness start with a smile and a positive thought.

I love music and the arts. I see them as a powerful way to express a feeling and celebrate life.

I love being a doula because I believe that supporting a woman’s choice and helping her to have the birth she desires and above all to keep an amazing memory of it, is a huge privilege.

It is also an honor to provide emotional and physical support to a woman and her family during this very special life’s season.

It’s amazing to see what women are capable of. They are just wonderful!

About me

I am a philosophy major, currently living in Taiwan and have experienced, twice-over, wonderful water births and nursing experiences that led me to the journey of maternity support.

I am currently working as an independent doula.  I am working with a group of like-minded partners who are truly genuine and excited about what we do. Our core concept is to be flexible and provide kind and loving support for the birthing and postpartum needs of our clients, as if they are our own family member.  And this support extends to not just the mother, but the whole family!

I love to grow my network and learn more about the power of childbirth and childbirth in general. A supported labor will make one’s story of life different. And inspired by Ginny’s legacy, I would like to pursue a holistic maternity care as a life goal and I’m taking the first steps towards that.

To be a doula is to serve parents whole-heartedly.

About Me

I am a woman that strongly believes in the power of motherhood and the difference a good relationship with your kids can make in their lives. After studying engineering and working in that field for some years, I had my first child and that changed the course of my life. I started to learn about their development, parenting and witnessed first-hand as a mom, the effect little moments and my attitude had on my kids, who are now adults. I also learned through my experience and work that those connections start during pregnancy, and that the delivery and first days of the baby’s life are key in the process. This is the reason why I want to be a Doula and give new moms a strong start to become the best mothers for their children.

About Me:

I have been in the health and wellness industry for 6 years where I have been passionate about learning, sharing information and educating people on how the body works and the natural ways to regain health. I strongly believe that knowledge empowers us to make better decisions in all aspects of our lives. As I trust in the body's innate wisdom as well as universal intelligence, I would like for people to go beyond the haze of marketing tactics and the dollar industries to find their own sunshine as they create the lives they desire.

I was brought into the world of doula-ing through a single video: The Business of Being Born. I have since found my passion in providing emotional and informational support in the birthing industry.

​I love being a Doula because I am deeply touched by the natural processes of life, the many emotions involved and the transformations of such a journey. It is an honour to be a witness of love and life. I hope for women to earnestly express who they truly are and to entrust themselves to the amazing abilities of their bodies.

DONA Birth Doula

2018: Attended DONA Birth Doula Workshop & Spinning Babies Workshop

About me

I enjoy pole dancing, HIIT, playing golf and walking in nature. Being active has always been an important part of my life and I believe that a woman’s body is powerful and nothing is too difficult to achieve with the right preparation and planning.

After completing my Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Melbourne in 2009, while I enjoyed living there, I realized that there is still no place like home and I knew in my heart that Singapore was and is where I’m meant to be. 

I started my journey as a doula to connect with, support and empower women. Looking back on my terminated pregnancies, I wished that someone had encouraged and told me that I could do it. I wish to be that someone, supporting and believing in expectant mothers and their partners to have the birth they want and desire. I know that in the toughest moments, I will hold your hand and tell you “Don’t give up. You can do this.”
