Defining Moments
Doula Services

Helping make birth a beautiful experience
Your Subtitle text
 I provide physical and emotional labor support for women and their families. 


Our INITIAL FREE CONSULTATION is an informal visit to meet and discuss your pregnancy and any expectations you may have for your birth experience. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and see if we are a good fit. I would also go over my services and fees with you, and give you my information package.

If my services are of interest to you, we would arrange a time for me to COME TO YOUR HOME, meet your partner ( if applicable) and sign contracts.

 I have a game that I bring that serves as a wonderful tool to help you start thinking about some of the options you have for your birth and sort out what is most important for you.

We would go over several options for your birth, including intermittent fetal monitoring, the importance of movement and gravity in labour, delayed cord clamping, immediate skin to skin contact, placenta options etc... 


 I further leave some information with you about how I work together with your partner without replacing them, and sheets to help you formulate a birth plan.

The THIRD VISIT is typically at around 37 weeks. I would again come to your home with my doula bag and birth ball. You, your partner and myself would go over different comfort measures such as breathing, the use of the shower, counter pressure and massage, as well as several labour positions helpful in childbirth.

 We would discuss timing contractions, what to expect at each stage and phase of labour and when to go to the hospital or birth centre if applicable. This is also the time to address any questions or concerns you or your partner may have regarding your birth.

I would then ATTEND YOUR BIRTH in its entirety, and stay for approximately 2 hours after baby is born to help with initial breast-feeding.

Lastly, once your new family has settled in, I would come to your home to see baby and bring you your BIRTH STORY. This is a detailed personal keepsake account of your birth experience which I absolutely love writing!

 I do take PICTURES throughout your birth ( all within your comfort level ) which I would e-mail to you. I further include a SLIDE SHOW of your birth complete with music.

I am always available throughout your pregnancy via phone or e-mail to answer any questions you may have...

                               
 

Thank you so much for your interest, I look forward to hearing from you!
