Prenatal Sessions


  1. You will learn about your BIRTH RIGHTS and I’ll teach you and your partner how to empower yourself during labour using BRAIN questions.
  2. You will learn how to create a realistic birth plan.
  3. Discuss stages of labour, provide information about interventions.
  4. We will discuss your biggest concerns about labour, birth and life with a newborn.
  5. Create a postpartum plan.
  6. Show you some comfort measures I will use in labour, and teach them to your partner (if you have one.)
  7. I have lots of doula tricks up my sleeve that I will teach you. We’ll talk about how your birth can be a fun experience. Believe it!
Giving birth with lots of support

During Labour


  1. Continual labour support until 1-2 hours after the birth. I stay with you while hospital shifts switch, and you’re meeting various health care providers.
  2. I will cheer you on, keep you focused on your journey, be a rock for you, offer a perspective and options. I will stay calm and objective.
  3. I can suggest relaxation techniques, massage, apply acupressure, hydrotherapy, different positions, and other calming measures for comfort during labour. I will bring my tens machine.
  4. I will do my best to keep your birth space protected.
  5. I’ll probably (no, definitely!) shed tears of joy and pride when your sweet baby/ies is/are born.

After Birth


  1. I’ll stay with you, offer to snap some pictures of your new family. I’ll make sure you are fed and comfortable.
  2. I’ll assist where I can with breast/chestfeeding. Using my intuition, I’ll sense the right moment to make my exit, giving you quiet time with your new family.
  3. A few days after your birth I will visit with you to see how you’re feeling, how your recovery is going, review your birth, offer feeding support (if needed), provide some community resources and admire your sweet baby.
  4. We can talk about your postpartum village and how you will go on with your day to day while caring for a baby.
