Labour & Birth Support

Labour & Birth Support

For the time period before you give birth I offer 24/7 phone, text and email support leading up to the big day from 38 weeks on. During this time I will help you to feel supported and connected and I will address any concerns or question that you may have. I will be with you and your birth team during your labour and delivery as a key member of your support system, whether you are delivering at the hospital, birth center or at home. I will support you physically, emotionally and mentally and will provide you with the tools and information needed for you to make informed decisions. Once your baby is born, I will stay up to two hours postpartum. I am happy to help assist with breastfeeding, take photos and gather your items together.

Postpartum Support

Postpartum Support

After your baby is born, I will visit you at your house 3-6 days after delivery to see how you and your new baby are doing. We will discuss the labour and delivery and how you are feeling about your experience. We will also review any concerns you have with your newborn including feedings. The time after you and your baby arrive home can be some of the most challenging. Whether it’s baby number one or baby number four it’s a time of tremendous change. I can provide you with warm comforting support to help you through this trying time. Postpartum Care is provided at a minimum of 4hrs support per day.

About Me

About Me

My goal is to make sure that your pregnancy, birth and postpartum time are filled with amazing memories. To allow your transition to parenthood be educated and supported. I want to use my experience as a mother and as a doula to empower you. Nonjudgmental, and understanding support.

After assisting with my sister’s pregnancy in 2009, I knew that the role of a Doula was for me. I am a single mother of two beautiful grown daughters and an auntie to one amazing nephew born and raised in Toronto. I have worked as a Cardiac Technologist, Phlebotomist, and HR Recruiter and in Health and Safety for the Provincial Government as a Product Launch Specialist.

I live in Etobicoke with my partner Robert and our Border Collie rescue Molly.

I will support you through your birth and postpartum experience with ease and comfort, whatever that may look like. I will provide you with resources and evidence based information to guide you and support you.
