What the heck is a consulting doula?
Wait, what the heck is a doula!?!?
A doula is many things. Traditionally we were the same thing as midwives, and the same thing as the woman in the village that did all those things – birth, death, medicine, comfort, care, knowledge. I’m sure many generations ago I would have been called a water woman, or a white witch.
Now doulas are a word for non-medical, but highly trained care for birth. We attend pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period and make sure a mother, and her family, know what works best for them, helps them through decisions, and concerns, attends the entire labour and birth, and keep assisting you through the postpartum period.
Over the past years I’ve realized that woman need more, they need a source of information surrounding fertility, pregnancy, labour, birth, breastfeeding, the postpartum period, sleep, parenting, and life in general. So the concept fo the consulting doula for advanced assistance on many woman, child, birth, and parenting topics was born.
I’ve taken my background, education, and training in various areas and combined them to bring you a peer counselling service that can speak to any and every topic that you’d like to discuss.
If you don’t know who can help you with your questions surrounding wishing to become a parent, pregnancy, new parenthood, and life as a family. I can help you with anything.
