A doula is a trained professional who provides physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth. Research shows that when a doula is present, labours are often shorter with fewer complications, breastfeeding is easier and babies are healthier.
As both a Naturopath and Certified Birth Doula, I can provide diverse tools during labour to ease pain, promote relaxation and facilitate labour. This can include acupuncture, homeopathy, massage, guided meditation and much more. I am also trained in the rebozo technique.
Additionally, I can also advise you on how to have the healthiest pregnancy possible through our work with nutrition, pre-birth acupuncture, working through health concerns that may arise and postpartum care.
My birth package includes the following:
In order to use tools such as acupuncture at your birth, you must first become a patient at my clinic. After the initial patient intake, we can then proceed in setting up your birth plan.
