Birth is a rite of passage that is worthy of acknowledgement, care and deep respect. My goal in my role is to gently offer support and care for you and your partner as you uncover your desires for your birth.
There is so much information and choice for your family, and you may face questions like:
Where should we birth our baby?
What are my choices for pain management and what risks and benefits do they have?
What role can my partner/birth team play in the process of growing and birthing our baby.
How do I prepared for not only my labour, but for after baby arrives?
Informative choice is your right. Having a birth doula offers support with education, advocacy and hands-on help. I can help navigate any questions, fears or insecurities that can arise when it is time to prepare to welcome your exciting addition.
Rest assured that I can help you develop a clear understanding of your goals for your birth journey.
