Are you pregnant and preparing for the birth of your baby?
No matter if first or fifth baby, this can be a wildly exciting time.
And often quite daunting!
There is no other time in your life when you can harness your superpower as a woman more intensely than in pregnancy and birth.
Pregnancy and birth are a time-limited opportunity to redefine who you are in the world in whatever way you choose.
To step into the unknown territory of birth with courage and clear intentions as you discover your own strength and magnificence.
I truly believe in the exquisite power of our female bodies to birth our babies with relative ease.
And I have experienced and witnessed firsthand the transcendent nature of birth.
Continuity of care is also a big plus as a special kind of intimacy is likely to grow with your caregivers during your journey from pregnancy through to the “fourth trimester”.
For example, massage and bodywork are never just about your physical body but will also balance your emotions and energy body at the same time.
Similarly, as a birth educator and doula, I would cover as many aspects of your pregnancy and birth journey and offer you and your partner a variety of holistic tools to explore and make your own.
and attuned presence in all that I offer.
I can meet you wherever you are in your preparation journey.
All workshops are held at Pulse, 149B Glenlyon Road, Brunswick VIC

Choosing Nisha to be our doula was one of the most enlightened decisions we made. Having her support in the lead up to birth, during labour and in the weeks following the arrival of our daughter was invaluable. Nisha’s heart and soul are in her work. Her love, sensibility and intuition helped me to tap into my feminine power and climb the mountain that is labour and birth. It was Nisha’s wise whispers of encouragement during labour that helped me find my strength and self-belief to keep going and birth my angel girl exactly as I’d envisaged.
I have known Nisha for several years and am amazed at the serenity I
experience in sessions. Nisha has wonderful gifts from the healing arts. She is exceptionally intuitive in her counselling and has helped me to trust in myself. Through Somatic Experiencing and bodywork we have begun to unravel trauma that I have been carrying heavily for over four decades. Nisha is a truly gifted healer.
Nisha's loving and nurturing touch is a treasure to experience whilst
pregnant and is quite unlike many other pregnancy massages I've experienced. Nisha goes far and beyond to ensure you leave feeling relaxed and completely nurtured.
Primal Mama provided the space for me to go exactly where I felt called to in my birth preparation - out of my head and into my body, pleasure and primal nature and birthing instincts. Such valuable places to connect with as I prepare to birth my first child, particularly these days with so much information bombarding birthing women and keeping us in our thinking mind.
Thank you, Nisha for offering this space!
I was immediately drawn to the Birthing Bliss retreat day for it’s
physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual content. Nisha brings a great range of credentials and experience, and her passion for women’s work, natural warmth and openness made me feel safe and confident in the space.
Nisha took us on a journey of self-discovery and self-empowerment while nurturing our intuition and primal instincts. It was a perfect mixture of learning practical techniques, expressing feelings, deep relaxation and connecting with other like-minded mothers. An extremely valued experience that I wish I’d found in my first pregnancy.
I would highly recommend this day to all women no matter how they plan to birth. They will definitely take something special from it.
At five months of my pregnancy, I took the time to nurture myself and my growing belly and was so thankful I did.
My experience with Nisha was lush, gentle, loving and attentive – all the things an aching, pregnant body needs.
To say I was completely moosh after the session is an understatement.
The experience was unlike any other bodywork I’ve tried before. It touched and uplifted me on emotional, physical and energetic levels. The impact remained for some days after.
Nisha has an unquestionable gift as a bodyworker and counsellor. Her knowledge, commitment to her clients and passion for her work is evident in her presence.
