Birth Doula Services 

Pregnancy,Birth, and Breastfeeding Support

Congratulations on the new journey you are about to take. It will be an exciting and life transforming one!  It is my desire to help you achieve the type of birth that you are hoping for, by being the helper at your side, supporting you and working alongside any other friends or partners whom you choose to accompany you into the delivery room.

My basic birth doula services include 2 meetings with me prior to delivery (so that we can get to know each other a little and go over your expectations or preferences for the upcoming birth). I am always free to answer any questions you may have via phone or email.  Then, I would either meet you at your home or else at the hospital when you go into active labour. Many times I may arrive before active labour depending on the circumstances. Most often, I will need a full hour to arrive on site from the time that you call me. Once I am assisting you, I will remain until the baby is born and I have made sure that you are comfortable and settled afterwards (usually about one to two hours after baby is born). In the case of a c-section where I am not present in the operating room, I will remain until you are settled with baby after surgery.  After all deliveries, I will see you for a follow-up visit within one to two weeks to check on both you and baby in case you have any further questions and to debrief on the whole delivery process.

The cost for my birth doula services are $800. I require a $200 deposit at the time you book me, and then the remainder of the fee once baby has safely arrived and I am on my way out. For those with limited financial resources, please
contact me.

I am now a trained Breastfeeding Support Specialist. I have completed the Douglas College Breastfeeding Support course for Healthcare Professionals, and I am excited to help you solve some of your breastfeeding challenges. The cost for this service is $50/hr (about half the cost of a lactation consultant)  Some areas of difficulty that I can assist with include: nipple pain, proper latch, effective milk transfer, milk supply problems (too much or too little), and breast pain
