As a doula service provider, I help women stay strong and calm throughout labour. I offer comfort measures, coping techniques, and constant and sustained presence to help you create a satisfying birth experience. I want to get to know you and your birth companion(s) prenatally, and will continuously support you and your loved ones during the birth. I will work to provide comfort and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions as issues arise, and assist with massaging, positioning and relaxation techniques as required. As your doula, I work for you directly, not for your caregiver or hospital.
My goal as a doula is to be completely present for your birth experience—physically and emotionally. I use active listening techniques to adjust my role according to your needs and seek to promote communication among all members of your birthing team.
