Being prepared for childbirth matters. I provide mentorship and tools that foster self trust and prepare you for the birth of your baby and the re-birth of yourself as parent or mother.

Why hire a doula?
A doula is a pregnancy, birth and postpartum support person. A doula is someone who is experienced in providing continuous care (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) before, during and after childbirth. They trust birth, they hold space and they support you to trust yourself to make decisions along the way.
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 reduce 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/birthing person and their family.
