Birth Doula

What is a doula?

A doula is a professional labour companion that provides emotional, physical and informational support to a couple during pregnancy and birth. She has experience, knowledge and a passion for birth and assisting mothers.

A doula begins working with the couple during their pregnancy to provide information and support. She will help you prepare a birth plan, provide guidance and help you prepare for the upcoming birth of your child. During labour Doulas provide emotional and physical support. She may help a mom (&partner) stay relaxed and calm, provide encouragement and massage, assist in position changes and other comfort and support techniques

As your doula I will be with you every step of the way. I recognize that every woman’s journey to motherhood is special and unique. Whether you are planning to birth at your home or at the hospital and whether you are planning a birth with or without the use of medication I will be there to support you, encourage you and help you find your strength and connect to your body’s innate ability to birth your baby.

Pregnancy and Birth is such an amazing gift that we as women have and it can be such a transformative process. My wish is that all women/parents look back on birth amazed at what they made, the strength that they have and with a positive birth story to share.
