A doula can enhance your birthing experience. They provide you (and your partner/family) with information, education, physical and emotional support throughout pregnancy, labour, delivery and post-partum. Doulas do not deliver the baby or prescribe/treat medical conditions. Instead they coach and empower new parents, and families to feel prepared, confident, and secure in the changes that are to come.
Our doula provides non-medical support that includes:
Information about the birthing process
Techniques for pain management during and after labour
Strategies for over-coming fear and anxiety related to pregnancy, labour, and/or parenting
Preparation and birth planning
Pregnancy related nutrition and lifestyle recommendations
