RAFFERTY HALLOWS
YOUR PARASOCIAL BESTIE/ECCENTRIC QUEER AUNTIE/BIG LIFE BIG SISTER/FULL SPECTRUM EXTENDED POSTPARTUM DOULA

WHO IS RAFFERTY HALLOWS?
 

​I am Rafferty Hallows, bleeding heart sapphic doula, weirdo, and self appointed Patron Saint of Mental Mamas.

 

My greatest wish is to lead a community revolution that centres Mothers, postpartum, children and healing as vitally important to the health of society as a whole.

I offer full spectrum Mothercare, pregnancy and postpartum doula support,  resources and postpartum planning and inspiration to the queer, quirky, neuro-spicey Mothers of Melbourne

 

I like to think of myself as Molly Weasley of The Revolution. Instead of a wand and a cauldron I have a soap box (instagram) and tender heart as my conduits of magic.
 

Taking care of mothers with a tenderness inspired by my own experiences, slutty toast, deep reverence and wide open arms is a subversive act in a world that treats Mothers as though they don't exist. Nah, Fuck that.

LAID BARE

I am living my big bold queer life, held gently by the compassionate grace of my community, raising three gremlin babes in a shared custody arrangement with my ex husband, while embodying my punk values through doula work.

Motherhood flattened me!

I give thanks every day to the community and sisterhood of doulas who raised me as I transitioned from maiden to mother, in place of the crones and matriarches who are so sorely missed within modern society.

My eldest son is 10 (woah), which means I have been deep in the Mother sphere for *gasp* a decade and officially a doula for seven years. I originally planned of working at the alter of birth. But extended postpartum is truly where my magic resides.

​When I'm not soap boxing about the potent healing opportunities of postpartum, the industrial birth complex, motherhood and the patriarchy, I can be found stewing magic in my kitchen, thrifting, fooling around, exploring by the water, dancing or re-reading Harry Potter for the hundredth time.​

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT MY STORY IN THESE PODCAST INTERVIEWS.

Ask, and you shall receive a postpartum packed with play, healing and connection.

WhETHER YOU ARE EARLY POSTPARTUM, POSTPARTUM AGAIN or POSTPARTUM IS FOREVER.

After a few hours under my care, I hope you feel lighter and more powerful, heart full and belly soft, alive and sure.

I want to resource you with skills and tools for self care as well as building strong and radical communities so that you may receive a lifetime of meaningful and ongoing support.

May you trust in your integrity and intuition as a mother and a gloriously magnificent and messy multifaceted human being.
 

I am here to provide you with radical care during the awe inspiring, but often oh so spicey time that is Motherhood

Take me to your services!
