“Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.”

Birth Doula Services

Huge congratulations on your pregnancy! Since getting that positive test (or 10 positive tests, if you are anything like me), you might have hit the internet researching EVERYTHING. Or you might have asked friends and family for their experiences.  Which ever way, what you have likely received is a vast amount of conflicting information and, possibly, a lot of negativity along with horror stories about birth.

So, what do you need?  Someone in your corner who can provide evidence based facts and supports you in your decisions instead of giving unsolicited advice!  Pregnancy and birth can and should be an amazing time in your life, for both you and your partner.  Whether it is your first or your fifth baby, you can have a positive birth experience.

Your Body

During your labour, I will be there for you, supporting the choices you make. No questions asked. You have a right to ask questions and decide what happens to your body.

Your Birth

You won’t forget your birthing experience, it’s not just one day in your life. It matters, you matter. I would love to assist you to have the birth experience you desire!

Your Way

Even if your plans need to be adjusted, I will help you ask all the right questions to ensure that at the end of the birth, you made the choices that got you there.
