Services Offered: Birth Doula, Childbirth Education
My name is Laura Pascoe and I’m a certified birth doula who has worked to advance sexual and reproductive health and rights both locally and internationally for over a decade. I became a doula because I wanted to bring comfort and support to people on their birth journey from an evidence-based and client-focused approach. I am committed to helping clients find their own voice in advocating for the choices and decisions that are right for them and their family. The birth experience is one that stays with you, regardless of how it happens, and I am committed to providing quality, non-judgmental support to you—wherever and however you decide to give birth.
As part of my love and commitment to improving birth experiences and health outcomes for all, in 2018 I co-founded the Doula Support Foundation (DSF), a pro-choice nonprofit based in Kingston, Ontario that provides affordable full-spectrum doula support and childbirth education through a trauma-informed and harm reduction approach. I started DSF with this amazing community of doulas because I believe that every person who births should feel cared for, respected, and heard. I want doula support to be accessible to everyone—regardless of income, race, sexuality, or otherwise. I am a fun-loving and compassionate individual who has two wonderful children, loves the colour turquoise, and being upside down.
