I am so glad that you are considering a Doula for your labour and birth. The continued support of a Doula can help you navigate information both during pregnancy and labour, advocate for you and your desired birth plan, and assist you and your partner with comfort measures and labour coping techniques.
I would be honoured to support you and your partner as your Doula. I would love to meet with you and discuss how I can support you with your upcoming birth. You are so right about needing to be prepared and there are so many things we can do to practice before hand.
Birth is such a personal event. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and it is important to tailor a birth plan just for you. How we feel about our birth and the process is just as important as the physical decisions we are making at the time. It is good to feel empowered and know your options.
Birth Doulas are women who are trained to provide practical and emotional support to women and their families during labour and birth . Postpartum Doulas support and address the needs of mothers and their families at home after the birth.
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th baby? Need a refresher class?
Many people want a natural birth but don’t know how to prepare their
mind and body for one. There is so much you can do.
Birthing with Passion is relaxed and informative using movement, breathing, vocalization, visualization and other practical techniques which enable you to
have the personal birth experience you seek.
When a mother is born it can feel more consuming than childbirth. The fourth trimester is the 3 months after giving birth.
In this time you go through one of the biggest transitions of your life that can be testing physically and emotionally. For most it is in some ways a surprise at how intense it is. You are growing into a whole new role and the most important role, a mother.
All packages can be used with flexibility with a 3 hour minimum for each visit.
This package enables me to come into your home for 3 hours and help you settle in after birth. As mothers transition home from the hospital, it is important to ensure that they receive both the emotional and physical support needed for such a tremendous transition.
This package enables me to come into your home for 2 x 3 hour visits.
