Why Hire a Doula?
The Evidence shows that continous support in labour leads to shorter labours, greater satisification with the birth experience, less interventions, decreased cesarean births and better fetal outcomes.
In my practice, it is incredibly important to me that I support however you choose to birth. I customize my care to suit your wishes and needs. I provide informational, physical and emotional support to the birthing person and their support team shall they have one. I go into depth with my clients about all of their personal preferences and goals that they wish to share.
I support every birth. My goal is that you feel respected, heard and supported. Shall you choose to birth with medication, wihtout medication, in the hospital or at home, belly birth or vaginal birth. I am here for you.
I can join you at any point in your labour. Your medical care proffesional might not be able to offer in person support during early labour. I join my clients at whichever point they feel they need and want my support.
Call me at anytime. I am happy to chat via text or phone call. If something comes up and you have questions, send me a message. I am available for you. If you have a choice to make we can talk about beneifts, risks and alternatives.
I have a partner, why do I need a doula?
Having a life/romantic partner involved in your birth is wonderful. Infact, they can support you better than I ever could. Labour is a delicate balance of hormones. Having someone you love and feel that comfortable with near you, touching you, supporting you helps to release the hormones so crucial to the progression and comfort of your experience. I never take over the role of your partner unless that is your wish. Instead we work together. I can suggest labour and teach positions, coping mechanisms, non medical pain management and suppport the both of you. I will help your partner support you. I will make sure both of you are well hydrated and fed. I can be the running support so your partner can spend more time by your side. Growing and flourishing both individually and together during the birth journey. I am happy to meet with you and your partner to collaborate on how we can all work together to make it the best possible experience it can be for you and your family.
