As a doula I serve...

The mother and her partner during birth to help make the experience feel most empowering and joyous. Research has found the presence of a doula at a birth reduces the length of labour and the incidence of complications, and is associated with healthier babies who breastfeed more easily.

As a doula I offer...

Understanding, encouragement, and physical comfort to the mother during her labour and support for partner's participation. I help the mother and her partner to communicate with the clinical team to make informed decisions.

I support the mother and her partner's decision-making with regards to pain management, medication, interventions and infant feeding.
