My name is Heidi Matthias and I am a doula and childbirth educator supporting women and families in Newmarket and surrounding areas. As a trained physiotherapist and the mother of three, I bring back round knowledge and experience well suited for supporting women through the physical and emotional challenges of pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. My understanding and genuine confidence in a woman’s beautiful physiological design allows me to bring a calm, gentle demeanour to the birth room and family home. I believe simply that the birth experience matters and that a positive memory of birth is a gift to last a lifetime. It is my goal to assist women and families to transition to parenthood feeling well informed, cared for and empowered. It is my hope that parents who feel good about the well informed and supported decisions they have made during pregnancy and childbirth will continue to feel confident for the many decisions which come with parenthood. I thank you for considering me to support you in the joyful journey of birth.
