WELCOME TO FILL YOUR CUP
Imagine a world where after the birth of your child, you returned home and had a dedicated person whose sole job was to look after YOU. Provide support and nourishment for YOU. Someone to make delicious nutrient-rich meals, fold that stack of washing, settle your baby while you rest and lend a non-judgmental ear when you’ve had a tough night.
Enter stage left… This person is known as a Fill Your Cup postpartum doula.
Micka and Renee are trained postpartum doulas who met whilst completing their PhDs at Monash University. Renee focused on the biochemistry of the immune system, whilst Micka pursued her passion for women’s health. They’ve taken divergent career paths but continued their friendship throughout the years. Their daughters, born almost 365 days apart, sparked a new bond. Motherhood. From there, came a new and undiscovered appreciation for mothers and matrescence – the transition of a maiden into a mother… and Fill Your Cup was born…
The philosophy is simple:
Mother the mumma, nurture the nurturer and provide women the opportunity to fall in love with their postpartum experience
