What is a doula?
As your doula I will provide non judgmental support and care during pregnancy, labour, delivery, and postpartum. I provide couples with non medical tools to create a positive experience. I use a holistic approach by working with each individuals needs. A doula also helps partners make informed decisions and help educate them in all possibilities during their journey.
I am here not only to provide you with knowledge and support but as a friend that will be by your side during the hardships. I am someone you can trust to always guide you in the direction you and your partner desire. I love being a doula because I can help empower women in one of the most life changing experiences. I am fascinated by the pregnancy and birthing process and would love to help make your experience one you want to remember and cherish.
