Approaching the tail-end of her second pregnancy, entrepreneur, author and all-round boss lady Zoe Foster Blake has shared how she’s preparing for baby numero two.
Writing to her half a million Instagram followers on Sunday night, the Go To Skincare founder wrote: “Basic breathing/swearing/pushing aside, I’ve forgotten what to do.”
Enter Marie Burrows, a birth doula and educator who founded the company Birthing Rites Australia and, according to her website, aims to explore “emotional/psychological aspects of birth and parenting, specifically in ‘feeling your feelings’ – richly, deeply and profoundly to achieve personal insights, personal empowerment and healing.”
For Foster Blake, Marie’s presence has been soothing.
“Marie makes me feel calm and positive about childbirth. Even the bit where I will spew everywhere, and tell my poor husband to stop f*cking touching me, then beg him to massage my back 30 seconds later,” she said.
