WELCOME TO

Welcome to Pickles and Ice Cream Birth Support Services, supporting women, couples and families across the Surf Coast, Geelong and surrounding areas.

My name is Kellie Whiskin and I am Pickles and Ice Cream – a small business with a huge commitment to supporting women and the people they love through pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and post partum. 

As a doula (birth attendant), educator and counsellor, I offer professional and personalised services to best nurture and support your needs. 

 

Pickles and Ice Cream offers full doula services, pregnancy and post partum support, doula training opportunities, counselling, mentoring and much much more

 

TESTIMONIALS and BIRTH STORIES

 
With Kellie’s support we got the birth outcome we wanted - a natural birth in a hospital setting.  Meetings before the birth were flexibly scheduled around our work and family commitments, even meeting at a playground to keep our four year old busy.  After our discussions with Kellie and the use of her books / CDs we had a clear birth plan worked out and plenty of ideas about non medical measures to use at the birth.  Through some amazing intuition Kellie had told us several times that the birth may happen quickly and to be careful about delaying getting to the hospital.  As it turned out it was lucky we left right away as the second stage was almost beginning when we arrived and our son was born about three hours after labour had begun.  During labour Kellie’s voice was clear, reassuring and made sense.  She helped us with communication with the hospital staff which left the birthing Mum free to focus on her job.  Dad was guided in the best ways to assist.  The birth left us feeling empowered and of course overjoyed to have met our son in this calm gentle way.  Kellie’s support afterward helped a great deal with recovery and transitioning to our new family life, and we were grateful for the curry and vegan tart!

I have been truly blessed to work alongside Peter Roberts, therapeutic harpist and musician, during birth and beyond.

 

Here is a snap shot of the Reverie Harp, an opened tuned harp that you can purchase and utilise during many of life's tranisitons, inparticular throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond. Play to your baby during pregnancy and strengthen your bond post birth with the beautiful sound and very easy to play reverie harp.
