After the dramatic difference between my first and second birth, I realized just how important our child’s birth is in our lives. Like a wedding, it’s a day worthy of celebration, enjoyment, time/resource investment and lots of preparation. When I launched this program it was because I wanted every woman who wants a doula to have access to one, regardless of her financial situation. I am excited to be a part of this innovative approach to a timeless tradition: having women support the labouring woman through physical and emotional comfort measures. I have attended over a hundred births and am amazed at how different they have each been. Each birth is unique, and each woman deserves to be served in her own special way, a way that is unique to her and her family’s needs. This varies from woman to woman, but doulas have an almost sixth-sense in being able to know what a woman needs without her having to verbalize it! It is through this support that we help to improve the most precious of occasions. I hope you’ll allow us to support you through your special journey into parenthood, whether this is your first or fifth baby.
