Postpartum doula support
Make decisions for you:
I will assist you by providing the information you need to make informed decisions during your journey as a parent.
I offer a 30 minute 'meet and greet'. This time will give us an opportunity to get to know each other and for me to get a better understanding of your feelings about your upcoming postpartum period. I will go over the support services I offer as a postpartum doula and answer any questions you may have. If we feel we are a good match, I will be there shortly after your baby arrives for nurturing care!

As a doula, my role supporting you as a new mom & family will change from day to day. I will support you emotionally as you adjust to being a parent and physically as you heal from labour. I will support you with breastfeeding or bottle feeding, will give you information and resources on baby care while helping with bathing, soothing, diaper changes, infant massage and safe sleep habits. I will support and nurture your new role as parents, or help with the transition of having a new baby with previous children. I will provide extra loving hands for multiple births & preemie births. I am more than happy to do light household chores, errands, furry friend care, and healthy meal preparation. My presence will provide you & your family with reassurance, comfort and confidence during this new and amazing time.
As a doula, I DO NOT
I cannot transport you or any member of your family. I am however, able to accompany you or a family member.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience:
I will remain completely unbiased and open to your individual postpartum and parenting wishes. I am there to support you in every way.
I will not assume or diagnose any medical condition for mom or baby. I will support you in finding a suitable professional & research based resources.
"Every parent deserves a Village."
"We could not imagine the birth of our daughter without having Emily there. From preparing us leading up to the birth, to answering our numerous questions, to day(s)-of support, Emily was truly incredible. She helped make our birth experience a positive one and gave us the confidence and reassurance that we would not have otherwise had.
We would recommend Emily to anyone and everyone - whether or not you are wanting an unmedicated birth. Emily provides the physical and emotional support that all parents-to-be deserve to have in their birthing experience. And the relationship came so naturally - Emily is so thoughtful and caring, it was like having a close friend or family member along for the ride.
We are eternally grateful Emily - thank you! And we will most definitely have you by our side for baby #2!"
