Pregnancy & Birth

Doulas work with many different women in all types of births. All women benefit from the presence of a doula. Doulas attend natural births, epidural births, vaginal birth after cesarean births (VBACs), and cesarean births. Doulas work with each woman in the context of her own birth to provide support and to create a warm and encouraging birth environment.

My Support

I will meet with you before birth to discuss your history, plans, and preferences so that I have a clear understanding of your needs and you have a chance to get to know me, review and practice comfort techniques, and speak with me about any concerns or questions you may have.

During your birth, I will provide continuous, compassionate and uninterrupted support to you and your partner. I will attend to your comfort and provide guidance in non-pharmacological pain relief measures such as: breathing and relaxation techniques, massage, and positioning.

If you are planning to get an epidural, I can still be extremely helpful, keeping you as comfortable as possible during your entire labour and birth.

During postpartum visit (has to be scheduled within two weeks following birth) we will talk about the birth, take a look at how the baby is feeding (whether you choose to breastfeed or not), and assess how life with the new baby is going. I can also watch the baby, so you can take a shower or nap.

As a Hypno-Doula, I am happy to work with women seeking a doula for their Hypnobabies birth.

I do not consider myself a professional photographer. However I am confident I will be able to capture some beautiful images upon request.

If you do choose to have me attend your birth, there is a 40% non-refundable retainer, and we will sign a contract. The remainder of your fee will be due by our second prenatal meeting.

To arrange your free interview, please email me or fill out the contact form.

All potential clients receive a free 30-minute no-obligation telephone consultation.
