MyDoula Services

I support all clients who choose either home or hospital births.  I work very well with all Doctors, Obstetricians, Midwives, Nurses, Anesthetist and other health professionals, in Hospital or at Home Births

My clients are varied, from all ethnic backgrounds including LGBTQIA and Indigenous families.  I have experienced birth with Primip (1st delivery), Multip (more than one), VBAC, Age 40 & over, Twins, Higher Risk or Special Care, Relinquishing and Loss. I am a registered Birth and Post Partum Doula with BCAAFC – BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres 

I provide physical and emotional support, some of my favourites are, using visualization and relaxation methods, acupressure points, in addition to traditional doula techniques.  I cannot diagnose medical conditions, will not give a second opinion or medical advise.  I do not make decisions for you, but I will be a strong advocate for you

I have several lovely Doulas that can back me up, in the off chance I can not attend your delivery, this rarely happens, but is essential to have in this business. My Birth Fee is $1,950 for a Primip (first birth) and $1,400 for a multip, (a second or more being born) this fee reflects my experience & knowledge

I interview virtually; and when hired I will email you a package of information to prepare for labor along with Birth Tricks, we will review everything at your prenatal visit. The ‘tricks’ will help to better prepare you for labor and position baby. We will discuss your birth wishes and choices, for labor and delivery. Texting is encouraged as you get closer to the due date, if you have concerns or questions. We will discuss your options on drugs or not, the progression of labor, when to call the hospital, how to manage early labor. Do you want a Natural Birth? What does that mean to you? Tips to breath and relax, essential to labor and then how to change when you are pushing. When it is important to call me and when I will join you during labor. How long I will be with you after delivery.

In My Bag of Tricks – Exercises for early labor; Acupressure points; TENS machine; encourage and advise in the moment, for your partner to participate at their comfort level; inclusion of other support persons; how and when to breathe; position changes for pushing and more; settling you (and your partner) so you can enjoy those magical few hours of getting to know your new wee baby. Establish chest feeding if this is your choice. 

I am On-Call for you 24/7 via txt or cell

On the rare occasion, it is impossible for me to attend your birth, I will send my back up Doula.

Note: Birth and Post Partum Visits in the home are not encouraged by the hospitals, because of Covid. I have been communicating all pre natal and post partum visits virtually, since Covid started. We will set a convenience time to discuss your labor and birth; any feeding issues, questions about your baby; sleep deprivation; how to soothe baby.
