Contigo Doula Provides the Birth Support You Deserve
Every birth is special. Whether it takes place at the hospital or at home, each is beautiful and deserving of celebration.
No matter how you give birth, it is a life changing experience and I believe that continuous, unbiased support can have a significant impact. As a birth doula, I am honoured to assist families through this incredible transition and I will support you to my fullest in facilitating the kind of birth that you have envisioned for yourself and your family. Please contact me to learn more about my services and how I can support your growing family through pregnancy, labour, and birth.
WHAT IS A DOULA?
The word doula comes from the Greek term meaning woman servant and is often used to describe a person who serves families in labour. By definition, a doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and knowledge based support to a birthing person (and their partner) before, during and shortly after childbirth to help achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.
Why have a doula on your birth support team? Throughout history, women have always supported each other during labour and childbirth. While your caregiver also looks after clinical tasks, I have no medical or charting responsibilities as a doula. I am therefore able to dedicate all of my efforts to supporting you and your partner. As a professional birth doula, I will draw upon my knowledge and experience to help guide you through labour and birth. I can provide reassurance and perspective and assist with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort. As an added member of your team, my role is to be the constant presence and help facilitate a positive, informed, and empowering birth experience.
