Choosing a Doula is an important task.
This is the support person who will guide you through the most mysterious, uncertain and transformational year of your life.
Being prepared for childbirth matters. I will provide mentorship and valuable tools that prepare you for the birth of your baby and the re-birth of yourself as parent or mother.
My goal is to help you achieve an empowered childbirth experience, no matter the outcome.
This holistic work we do together creates a foundation of wellness that informs the rest of your life. I am your guide to conscious pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum integration and parenthood.
Why hire a doula?
A doula is a support person and this role cannot be underestimated. A doula is someone who is experienced in providing continuous care (physical, emotional, and spiritual) for women before, during and after childbirth.
Research has found that doula support can:
– reduce stress,
– reduce anxiety,
– reduce perception of pain,
– reduce birth interventions,
– increase breastfeeding initiation,
– improve outcomes for birthing person and baby, and
– greatly reduces experiences of birth trauma.
In addition, a doula takes the pressure off of your partner, midwife or the support staff at the hospital to provide much needed continuous support centred on the individual woman and her family.
