My role as a Labour Doula is not to replace the father/partner in any way. Instead, I can help assist the partner in being a better coach and remove much of the stress related to insecurity and uncertainty as well as allow the partner time to take a break when the need arises.
My practice is open to all families. Single women, married or common law, same or opposite-sex couples and families of choice are all welcomed.
I am independent and self-employed. As your doula, I am working for you, not for your caregiver or the hospital. Equally, I will always treat your caregivers and hospital staff with courtesy and respect.
