Birth doulas are trained and experienced birth professionals providing you non-medical support during your pregnancy, labour, childbirth.
Doulas support you with personalized one-on-one care and are just a text or phone call away. Want help preparing for labour and creating a birth plan? Your doula is there for you. Awake at 2 AM and wondering if you’re actually in labour? Your doula is there for you. Still have questions after leaving your midwife or OBGYN's office? Your doula is there to listen and support you.
Here are 5 reasons why you should hire a birth doula.
Under the new Covid hospital policies, we have added virtual birth and postpartum doula services to continue providing professional support to families throughout pregnancy, labour, and postpartum. While your doula may not be able to provide in person support, much of doula support remains unchanged and there are so many benefits that come with virtual doula support.
Dina loves that her doula work allows her to support families going through a very vulnerable moment and helping to make it beautiful and special. Dina’s experience working with families and her first pregnancy and birth are what inspired her to become a dedicated and warm hearted doula. She enjoys the guidance and companionship that a doula can provide to families throughout the pregnancy and birthing experience.
Dina has additional training in Hypnobirthing®, Rebozo Techniques and Infant Massage that help her provide families with a variety of tools during their birth, based on their needs and their birthing goals. In her first pregnancy she realized that much of the information on childbirth drew fear into the birthing experience and so she searched for other ways to achieve a positive birth experience. Hypnobirthing ® provides you with the knowledge you need to feel confident, and the techniques to remain calm and in control during your birth. Birth with love and joy!
We asked Dina for tips on hiring a doula and she thinks how you feel in birth is what can make the most difference. When hiring a doula look for one that helps you to feel the way you hope to feel during your birthing experience.
