Birth is birth, no matter how it happens

Birth Support & Childbirth Education

Making a decision to have a doula means you are wanting to have a safe, empowered and memorable birthing experience. Childbirth education classes are combined with a birth doula insight to take away the stress and the unknown. 
We create a birth plan specific to your needs.

Description of Birth Doula Care

Prenatal Sessions

  1. You will learn how to empower yourself during labour using BRAIN technique and other tips I’ll share with you.
  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. Talk about your postpartum plan.
  6. Show you some comfort measures I will use in labour, and teach them to your partner (if you have one.)
Giving birth with lots of support

During Labour

  1. Continual labour support unti 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.
  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, discuss the 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.
