A doula provides informative care and resources so you can make the best decisions for you and your family on where and how you would like to give birth.

Phone and text check in's during pregnancy.

Practical care includes pregnancy, labour, birth & postpartum education and preparation, putting plans in place for the postpartum and adjustments to life with a newborn, support by phone, text or email for any questions and providing details of other types of care providers in your area when needed.
