A birth doula encourages, empowers, and supports women before, throughout, and after their birth experience. They work with Mom to assist her in preparing her birth through informing her about the different needs that occur through the different stages of labour, along with working with Mom’s birth wishes – knowing that they may change during the labour. Doulas facilitate communication with the mother and the health care providers to make the birth experience one that Mom is happy with.
Paired with my training and experience with breastfeeding, I will be able to teach and assist mothers on latching, and prevent breastfeeding difficulties later on. I am an advocate of early detection and treatment of breastfeeding challenges within the first 24 hours following the birth of a child.
What is included in the package:
Complimentary meet and greet
2 prenatal visits - where we create and discuss birth wishes and answer your birthing questions
