As a birth doula, I accompany women in labour to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I draw on my professional training, knowledge, and experiences to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and to facilitate communication with your caregivers in order to make informed decisions as they arise in labour. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labour progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, and other techniques for comfort. I am independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not your caregiver or the facility where you birth.
