Doula

A birth doula is someone who is trained and experienced with childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support, before, during and just after birth.

As a birth professional I provide individualized care, education and support just for you!

FREE CONSULTATION. 

This is an opportunity to meet each other and have a chance to answer some of you questions and to decide if having me join your birth team is the right option for you.

PRENATAL SESSIONS. 

I provide two or three education and preparation sessions before birth covering topics like birth preferences, ideal birth environment, fears, labour and birth positions, pain management techniques and things specific to your birth. Allow about 2 hours per session.

ON CALL

I am on call for you 24 hours a day from two weeks before the estimated due date until the baby is born.

BIRTH

Babies come when they are ready and that means I am on call for you.  Once labour commences and we decide you are ready for me to join you I provide continuous support throughout labour, birth and for an hour or two immediately after the birth.

POSTPARTUM VISITS

Two visits in the weeks after birth.  Typically one within the first couple of days to provide support and any questions with a new baby.  The second one to discuss your birth journey and perhaps drop off a meal.

EMAIL & PHONE SUPPORT

You are always welcome to email, text or call throughout your pregnancy.

Doula services $950

My husband and I would strongly encourage anyone who is going to have a baby to hire a doula.  It’s worth every penny to have someone who can help get you through, especially if it’s your first and you have no idea on what to expect.

Wouldn’t change anything, thought everything the doula did was all very helpful.  My husband was even impressed with everything she did to help.  One of the nurses that was on duty said she wanted to have another baby, so that she could have a doula.
