This is a time of transition and change. It is messy, complicated, beautiful and momentous. It can feel amazing and really, really hard.
As your Doula I will spend time getting to know you, the other vital members of your birthing experience, and your goals . We will work together throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period to ensure you have the support and resources necessary to feel informed, ready (or as ready as possible) and nurtured on this journey. This is an extremely intimate and transformative time for all involved.
Prenatally , we will meet 2 or more times to connect around your birth goals, discuss all paths, concerns and excitement. Whether in conversation, with information, or hands on support, I work alongside you and support you in feeling connected to your body, the baby and birth experience.
I will be available for your by phone or email throughout your pregnancy and will be on-call 24/7 from 38 weeks until your labour ends. I attend throughout your birthing experience and work with your support people to ensure you feel loved in the process. In your postpartum time, we will work together for you to feel nourished and supported throughout this transition.
It’s important that your Doula is the right fit for you.
It is vital that your Doula is someone you (and/or partners and support people) feel comfortable with and confident in. That’s why I offer a complementary initial consultation- so we can get to know each other. Try each other on to see how great of a team we will be as you invite baby into the world.
This 30 minute ‘meet and greet’ will give us an opportunity to go over the support services I offer and answer any questions you may have.
