BIRTH DOULA SERVICES:
In a doula relationship, it’s all about you and how we can work together. During our free consultation visit, I will be able to describe my services, answer your questions, get to know you and determine if I am the right fit for you and your family.
During the prenatal portion of your pregnancy, I will provide two prenatal visits. At that time, I will provide you with information and resources, help prepare and discuss your birth plan, address your preferences and concerns, and review labour positions and comfort measures.
Leading up to your birth, I will provide 24 hour on-call services two weeks before your due date in person, phone or by email.
During your labour, I will provide continuous labour and birth support at home and in the hospital. I will provide and assist with physical comfort methods, labour enhancement techniques, emotional support, effective positioning and advocacy for your labour and birth preferences.
The Postpartum period can be the most important. Following immediately after your birth, I will assist with breastfeeding, family bonding, questions and provide resources up to two hours after the birth. I will also do one postpartum visit in the comfort of your home which will include breastfeeding support, new born care, mom care, answering questions, addressing concerns, and providing resources and referrals if necessary.
If you choose, I will offer video and photography services in addition to my primary doula services.

POSTPARTUM DOULA SERVICES
Postpartum care is most important following the birth of your baby. During that time, my role changes from family to family, day-to-day and even hour-to-hour.

I will also offer you practical support, assist and guide you through breastfeeding, prepare meals, help with house work and nurture older children. As your doula, I will recognize when your family can benefit from specialized help and offer quality, reliable referrals when needed. At all times, as your postpartum doula, I will provide reassurance, support and the belief that you will be successful in nurturing your family.

- Breastfeeding support and guidance
