A Birth Doula is an experienced & consistent ‘labour coach’ or Birth support person that can help you and your partner cope with labour and birth. They are 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 planning 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 >> MORE
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! >> MORE

What Parents Are Saying:
“Angela is a SAVIOR! I was close to throwing in the breastfeeding towel because of sore damaged nipples when my husband called (your Lactation Consultant) to make a home visit.
Within hours she was standing in our daughter’s nursery, coaching me on proper latching techniques. In what seemed like five minutes, Angela had magically solved my problem. It was a night and day change. Breastfeeding for me is now a very pleasurable experience due to Angela’s help.
I can’t say enough good things about her. Her easy-going and friendly manner complement her skill and knowledge. It was the best investment I have ever made in my life!!!”Nancy, Toronto
“I have to tell you, I never imagined that a Postpartum Doula could be so helpful! She is very knowledgeable and always has some tips for me, which is sooooo helpful for a new mom!
She is also very kind and caring which (our baby) lovel! She is just a fun, amazing person to be around. I cannot tell you enough how much difference sh made for me as a new mom who has no family here! We just love her!!!!”Anna, Toronto
“After coming home with my newborn and not being able to get her to latch, I called Angela trying not to panic. She came to the house and worked with me on a plan to help me and my baby.
Her friendliness put me at ease – something this anxious mama really needed. Her knowledge base is strong – I really appreciated that she has a nursing background in addition to being a lactation consultant and a mom of three!
What I really appreciated overall is that she spoke to me from the ‘real world’ and shared information that would help me become more intuitive about my baby as opposed to telling me only one ‘right way’ to do things. Angela was also available by text and email with any follow up questions; I definitely took her up on this offer. Angela felt like a lifeline to me during the first couple months of feeding and taking care of a newborn.”Ania, Toronto
