What is a doula?

A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

My role as your doula is to be a support for you and your partner before, during and after labour. I will guide your partner and empower you while you transition into mama hood.
I will educate, motivate and keep YOU accountable during your pregnancy and labour.

Doulas have a positive impact on the well-being of the entire family. We will work together to provide you have a calm birth space. As your doula, my goal is always to help you have the best possible birth.

Scientific data has shown that when a doula is present, there have been remarkably improved physical and psychological outcomes for both mother and baby.
Women who have continuous support are
*more likely to have a spontaneous vaginal birth
* less likely to request pain medication during labour
*more likely to have shorter labours
*less likely to receive a caesarean section
*less likely to have an instrumental vaginal birth (forceps, vacuum)
*more likely to be satisfied with their birth

I believe that women are STRONG!
I believe that childbirth can be enjoyed and embraced!
As your doula, we will have 2 prenatal and 2 postnatal appointments where we will discuss the stages of labour, pain management during each stage, hopes, fears and concerns, and breastfeeding.

I would be so honoured to be welcomed into your sacred birth space. Please contact me below to inquire about the different birth packages I offer.
