We are still here for all of our current and future clients and have adjusted our services accordingly, providing remote prenatal & postpartum visits if preferred.
As of June 6th, Birthgivers are now allowed to have two support people with them in hospital (ie. Partner & Doula). If restrictions are put back into place, we will provide doula support virtually.
Please see our Virtual Doula Support page for more information.
Birth Doula Support
For a positive & memorable birth experience
DONA International defines a doula as, "a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible." Doulas are non clinical in nature and work solely for the family; not the midwife, doctor or hospital. Doulas have been shown to reduce the need for medical pain management, lower the rates of induction/augmentation and cesarean birth, and improve breastfeeding rates.
Learn more about doulas in this wonderful and very informative article from the Evidence Based Birth website.
