Birth Doula Support

β€œA birth doula is a person trained and experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after childbirth.” (www.dona.org)

We support women who are stressed and overwhelmed about pregnancy, trust the process, feel good and create a peaceful loving birth experience.

As your doula, we will meet for two prenatal meetings prior to your estimated due period. We explore and discuss your priorities, and plan how we may best work together. We are available and on-call for your birth from the 36th week until the birth of your baby. You will have telephone, email and text support throughout pregnancy, until you give birth, and up to eight weeks postpartum.

The doula accompanies you up to two hours after birth, or until you are comfortable and your family is ready for bonding time together. Then we reconnect in your home for a postpartum visit within a week after your birth.
