Birth Doula / Labour Support Services
"A doula is 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." (www.dona.org)
I describe being a Birth Doula as being your best friend for the day. A best friend you hire to be by your side, supporting you (and your partner), maintaining a calm space around you . As a bonus, I have extensive experience and training surrounding childbirth. My focus is on you, and what you need emotionally and physically during the most transformative moment of your life.
