Birth Doula Services

Services include prenatal visits, being on-call 24/7 from 37 weeks until the birth of your baby (or babies), support during labour, and the postpartum period. We will be available to you by phone, text and email for any questions you may have throughout your pregnancy.


​During our prenatal visits we will help you to develop a birth plan, discuss your preferences for pain management as well as your rights as a birthing mother. Whether you choose to give birth at home or in a hospital we believe that you are in control of your body and know what is best for you and your baby. After your baby is born we will stay with you to assist in initial breastfeeding and until you feel comfortable and secure. Our postpartum visit will be an opportunity to discuss your birth experience as well as to answer any questions you may have about breastfeeding, newborn care and, more importantly self-care. We will continue to be available to you by phone or email as required. 

The client who is having a scheduled cesarean section has a unique set of needs and we are able to provide both pre and postpartum care that are tailored specifically to her. 

Whether this is your first baby, or you are adding to your family, the postpartum period is a time of transition. We can provide you with the support that you require to feel secure and cared for when you bring your baby home. We can assist with feeding, both you and your family, provide guidance on infant care and development, help with sibling adjustment, and light housekeeping  Our goal is to make this transition time go as smoothly as possible. 

Women who are planning to have a cesarean section find a postpartum doula especially helpful while recovering from the birth of their baby/babies.

We will help connect you with appropriate services (acupuncture, chiropractics, lactation consultants, maternity supplies, etc). 

We have a resource library available, and we are more than happy to share it with you.
