Empowered Birth Virtual Doula Support Package

As of June 6th, the COVID-19 hospital visitor restrictions have been lifted and birthgivers are now allowed to have two support people with them during labour (ie. Partner & Doula)

 

We are still offering a fully virtual doula support package for those who prefer that option.

This package is the same as our Village Essentials Doula package, with the exception of in-person contact.

It is perfect for anyone living and giving birth in a rural area or outside of our area of service.

We will help you and your birth partner to feel calm, confident and empowered going into the experience.  Together, we will help you navigate your way through your hospital or home birth.  Your doula will be present with you, remotely, as you need throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

(If you would still prefer to have the option of in-person support in your home during early labour, or prenatal and postpartum appointments, then feel free to choose our Village Essentials Doula package.
In-person support would be dependent on agreement and comfort of both doula and client.
Health and safety precautions such as wearing a mask, gloves and social distancing guidelines would also be considered during in person support.)

 

At this time, (June 2020) doulas are also able to attend in person at home births and births at Lucina Birth Centre.
