Nurturing new mamas, helping you find your village, celebrating your arrival into motherhood.
Welcome to The Mama Circle Sunshine Coast
I’m Alison and The Mama Circle Sunshine Coast is my new addition.
I’m Mama to two boys and I support postpartum women to navigate their own story of life as a new mum.
I am passionate about nourishing, nurturing and supporting you by providing you with delicious meals for postpartum healing, rituals to honour your motherhood journey and a listening ear to bear witness to your story.
Over the last fifteen years, I have worked as an artist, producing arts projects and festival ceremonies that connect communities and celebrate diversity.
When I became a mama, I realised that at the heart of the communities I work with are the invisible, unsung superheroes… the mamas. Mothers the world over are nurturing their newborns, often in isolation and often at the expense of their own wellbeing.
I began to question how I could use my skills as an artist to support new mums and celebrate their momentous rite of passage into motherhood. I then started my training as a postpartum doula and The Mama Circle Sunshine Coast was born.
The Mama Circle provides postpartum doula services alongside creative projects for new mamas. An offer to nourish your soul and body, connect you with your tribe and create ritual and ceremony around this most sacred time.
Whether you think of yourself as a creative soul or don’t think you have a creative bone in your body, The Mama Circle is for you. In its essence, its about you being seen for the amazing work that you do and nurturing you in the way that you need, at the time you need it most.
I see you mama. I’m here to help if you need me.
Those first few days. And first few weeks.
You have your lists of stuff the bub will need, but what will you, as a new mama, need?
I didn’t know this at the time, but what I needed has a name…a postpartum doula.
Way before Alison Burnley was an official postpartum doula, she was there for me when I needed support. She was the first person in our parenthood village, gently guiding me through this overwhelming journey.
I highly recommend getting in touch with Alison.
For us, she made a world of difference.
