Certified Birth Doulas for Hospital Births,
Birthing Centre Births, and Home Births.

Every woman experiences birth differently.

For some, a raw power erupts in them and their birth warrior roars out. For others, there’s a slow surrender and quiet stillness that flows through them. Really, there’s no right or wrong way to do it.

But no matter how or where you give birth, every woman can benefit from having knowledgeable and loving support during pregnancy, birth, and the days that follow as she settles into mommyhood.

The compassionate care of doulas can bring back the power of community, so mothers feel respected and supported in their birth and parenting choices.

More than that,

having a familiar face and level head in the delivery room with you can make the difference between a stressful labour and a calm one.

Whether we’re helping you find a more comfortable birthing position for a specific stage of labour, easing you through your contractions with rebozo techniques, or using visualization exercises to bring a little zen your way so you can be more present during the birthing process…

We’re here to give you the hand squeezes, the encouraging words, and the information you need—when you need them the most.

More than doulas, we’re:

CHEERLEADERS

When you think: “I can’t do this!”, we’ll be right there beside you, encouraging your partner and cheering you on so you can trust your body and work with it.

EDUCATORS

We keep you informed at every stage, so you feel confident in your birth decisions, know what to expect, and get the positive birth experience you prepared for.

ALLIES

We respect your birth wishes and facilitate time-outs in the delivery room when you need to understand and discuss the pros and cons of an intervention.

GUIDES

We can use aromatherapy to give you bursts of energy during labour, acupressure or massage to ease your pain, and visualization techniques to help you focus.

COMFORTERS

Studies show that doulas can help shorten labour, minimize the likelihood of interventions, and help women cope easier with pain. It’s official. We’re better than drugs.

TEAM BUILDERS

We give your partner the tools, encouragement, and hands-on guidance they need to support you through every decision, from pregnancy to parenthood.
