We also provide prenatal and postpartum support, while also giving referrals and information about community resources;
We provide lactation support to help those interested in getting breastfeeding/chest-feeding off to the best start possible.

 

Prenatal

We offer prenatal visits to get to know our clients and for them to get to know us. We also would like to get a better idea of how they envision their birth and ask what additional support they might need. These visits allow us to help clients prepare for birth.
 

POstpartum

Our doulas also offer postpartum visits and support and can make referrals for those struggling with what can be a difficult period, so that parents and families can get off to a better start

Labour & Childbirth

Our doulas are there to provide care during labour and childbirth. Labour and childbirth can seem daunting, but the right support can make a difference in how you experience the process.
 

Breastfeeding

Several of our doulas have received training in breastfeeding support and offer advice, tips and referrals to help avoid complications and address questions
