Welcome to Breith.

Breith, meaning birth in Irish Gaelic and choices or decisions in Scottish Gaelic, seemed the perfect name for an organisation that brought together Melbourne based pregnancy, birth and postnatal small businesses. Making your choices or decisions easier as they’re already in one convenient place.

Each business included in the pages of Breith has been handpicked by myself  because I have found that they are the best at what they do. Having had 5 very different birth experiences I feel I have a lot of knowledge to share.

While Breith started out only recommending businesses catering to Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs, now after years of successful recommendations we are able to branch out to include small businesses that cover all of Melbourne.

Most of the businesses recommended on Breith are still based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, as I believe supporting locals is essential, you will find many services that are able to travel and cover all of Melbourne and beyond. Like for instance, my business Doulas of Melbourne’s East (D.O.M.E) I am based in Mooroolbark, but am certainly happy to travel to service beyond Melbourne’s East.

 

 

Below is a list of maternity hospitals in the eastern suburbs and surrounds, these are also the hospitals my Doula birth support service (D.O.M.E) covers.
