Doula Services

I am a Birth Doula, Homeopath, and Reiki Master. I have been blessed to birth seven magnificent babes from my own beautiful belly.

I live and am devoted to my work on the beautiful gentle isle known as Prince Edward Island.  

As a doula, I seek to help my clients find their options and tools, ask productive questions, and learn to navigate the sometimes intense path that is the birth journey with their whole mind, body, and spirit. I believe that everyone's journey is different, has different requirements for medical interventions, and what is best for one might not be best for another.  I support my clients completely in their choices.

I aspire to help my clients birth in love, rather than fear.

I believe all birth is sacred.

 

What does a Doula do?

"She handled details during my delivery that made it much easier for my partner to focus on being there for me"

 

"all that I could remember and focus on was her soothing voice telling me I was doing great and to keep going. She was literally like an angel."

 

 

A doula is a non-clinical emotional and physical comfort support person, trained in birth. As a birth doula, my job is to empower you with the information you need to make your own decisions about your birth plan, remain with you throughout labour to provide emotional and physical comfort, demonstrate and assist with breastfeeding, and focus on your unique needs and desires. My goal is to ensure you feel supported for the type of birth you want.

Doulas attend all types of birth- hospital, home, vaginal, cesarean, VBAC, you name it. It isn't about us, it's about you, and your needs.

During labour, I am there to coach you and your partner with breathing techniques, relaxation, massage, movement and position options, and almost any way needed to get you as comfortable as possible and help your baby down smoothly. I am there to assist, mediate, support, and CELEBRATE you and your baby!

As someone who's pregnant, or their partner, you’re probably excited and want to make the most of this birth experience. You’ll likely find yourself wondering things like “what’s normal? What are my options? What can I do?” For some, the idea of planning for birth and managing the event can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. A doula is there throughout your pregnancy to inform you of your many options, know what's normal, and help you and your birth team navigate your birth experience with calm confidence.

I don't replace your partner, I don't speak for you, and I don't make decisions for you. Instead, I support and work with your partner to help them support you, I help you find your voice, and I make sure you have the info you need to make your own decisions as you feel comfortable.

You have more power than you realise, and my job is to help you harness that.
