Birthing Mothers Doula Services is a DONA certified doula service. I have been supporting families and pregnant mothers in the Calgary, AB and surrounding areas since 2008.
Birthing Mothers Doula Services mission is to assist the mother during pregnancy and labour so she can realize the kind of childbirth she wants.
With a clear understanding of her childbirth options, a mother is able to make informed choices. Birthing Mothers Doula Services is committed to supporting whatever choice a mother makes for the birth of her baby.
Allowing YOU to make your own decisions during pregnancy and labor will make childbirth a satisfying experience that has many benefits.
I want your memories of your birth to stay with you forever. It should be a positive experience. Women often comment on whether they felt supported, loved and cared for throughout their experience. This is what I want to offer to you. Doulas make a difference. With the routine of hospital protocols, the increasing number of cesarean sections, and the high nurse to patient ratio, it is up to you to ensure that you will get the care you need. You can do this by having a doula by your side.
I will accompany you through labor and birth, providing emotional support, physical comfort, and enhanced communication with your medical team. I will also provide help with breathing, relaxation, suggestions for comfort and progress, information about your options at any time, and support for the choices you make.
After the birth of our daughter, I decided I wanted to help other mothers have the same satisfying experience. I have chosen to be a doula because I am committed to making a difference, one birth at a time. Empowering women and guiding their partners through the birth process allows me to use my people skills, coaching talents, and intuitive nurturing abilities. I thoroughly enjoy it.
I am proud to be a member of the Doulas of North America (DONA). It is the most respected Doula association in the world, providing courses and workshops to ensure a high standard is maintained within the doula community.
I am committed to providing support to women during their pregnancy and birth so they to can have a wonderful experience. The birth experience is one of the highest anxiety producing things that a woman can do; it is impossible to predict or control how your experience will go. The theory is that mothers who have doula's as additional support produce lower levels of stress hormones than women left alone or attended by inexperienced coaches.
