Birth Doula Services
Calvin Feb 2017-9.jpg

I prefer to meet with you and your partner at least twice before labour to become acquainted, to explore and discuss your priorities, and any fears or concerns, your birth plan, including your preferences regarding pain management and the use of medications.  I also want to know your best ways of coping with pain and fatigue and how you and your partner foresee working together.  We may also decide on other meetings and will certainly want to remain in touch via phone.
During your birth I will provide emotional support, physical comfort and, as needed, facilitate communication with the staff to make sure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labour.  I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labour progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning and other techniques for comfort.  As your Doula I work for you, not your caregiver or hospital.

Postpartum Doula Services

Many people think I became a Doula because I love babies so much and don't get me wrong, I do. However, my real passion is mothering the mother. You've just accomplished an incredible feat, growing and nurturing your baby/babies in your body for 9 months, and then birthing them. To help you rest, heal and bond with your baby/babies I can offer the following services:

  • Feeding/Breastfeeding support

  • Newborn care

  • Emotional support 

  • Meal prep and light meals

  • Light housekeeping, i.e. laundry, dishes etc.

  • Sibling care

  • Grocery shopping and errands

  • Phone support

  • much more
