Cheryl Sheriff - 0407 153 412

Alece, Peter and baby Cohen April 2021

On advice from some friends, we decided quite late in my pregnancy to engage a doula and after chatting to a few, we decided to proceed with Cheryl from Ideal Birth and I am forever grateful we did! Cheryl's approach is informed by research, supportive and she is so knowledgeable about all facets of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. She took the time to get to know my partner and I and truly understand what we were hoping for as well as our concerns and as a result, my birth left me feeling empowered, safe, well cared for and was pretty close to the ideal birth (pun intended!) despite some early curve balls. Cheryl's advice during pregnancy and postpartum was invaluable and we are sure that if it wasn't for Cheryl, we would have had a very different birthing and postpartum experience.

I would definitely recommend doulas generally and Cheryl in particular to anyone expecting who understands the value of an empowering and positive birth experience.


“ Staff at the hospital were very impressed by Cheryl's support, and some of them were amazed that I had successfully had a vaginal birth after two Caesars. My husband and I both felt that we couldn't have done this without Cheryl's support — and we would gladly recommend her to any other expecting couples. ”
