Birth Doula Services
During 1-2 prenatal meetings, I will work with you and your partner to provide resources and support so that you can confidently plan your ideal personal birth experience. You will enter your labour feeling empowered and informed about the experience ahead.
During labour I provide non-medical physical comfort, and emotional non -judgmental support- encouraging and reassuring you throughout. Also, I am there to offer suggestions and strategies to you and your partner that you may find helpful during labour & will help to establish successful breastfeeding soon after birth.
Postpartum, I will arrange for an early post-partum visit, & continue to be in touch for the first few weeks, and to offer breastfeeding advice, encourage positive early mother-infant relationships, and be prepared for family adjustments.
Most importantly, I recognize that your birth experience is a memory that you will carry for life, and am committed to helping you make it a great memory.
Additional trainings and knowledge - breastfeeding, acupressure for labour & rebozo techniques for labour.
