A Birth Doula is an experienced ‘labour coach’ or birth support person that can help you and your partner cope with labour and birth. Your doula is a VERY important member of your birth team that only focuses on you!
You deserve constant support during your labour and birth no matter what kind of birth you’re hoping for. Having a professional and non-judgemental support person who is calm, knowledgeable, experienced and ‘there just for you and your family’, can make a huge difference to your birth experience.
Postpartum & Infant Care Doulas are trained to provide specialized support for you and your new baby in your home during the weeks and months after your baby is born.
Visits can be every day, once or twice per week, overnight or whenever you need! We have been asked by many new parents if our Postpartum Doulas can move in and stay forever! It can feel very overwhelming to bring a new baby home, and parents often feel like they haven’t slept or bathed in weeks and that baby’s needs are never ending! You don’t have to do this alone…. you need support!
