BIRTH DOULA SUPPORT

What is a doula?

"a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother [and their partner] before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible."  (DONA International)

* * *

As a birth doula, I am truly honoured to guide and support women and their families before, during and after birth. Through movement, breath, mindfulness and physiological knowledge, I help you create a more grounded, sacred and embodied experience.

Whether you plan to give birth at home, at the hospital or the birth centre, let me work with you!

If you are considering adding a doula to your birth team, contact me and I will be happy to schedule a meet & greet session to chat more about my services with you and your partner.

"I could not be happier with our experience with Rose as our birth doula. After a traumatic birth experience that ended in an emergency section with our first child, I was hoping for a much more positive experience with the birth of our second child. I met Rose through attending her prenatal yoga classes and immediately loved her positive energy and how comfortable I felt around her. Rose helped me and my husband feel confident and prepared as my due date approached. Her unwavering physical and emotional support was incredibly helpful throughout the labour. Her calming presence allowed me to feel strong and safe during contractions and helped me to keep my focus throughout. I truly believe that her suggestions for position changes during the labour allowed our baby to descend into an ideal position for a smooth and uncomplicated birth. With Rose's support, I was able to have an unmedicated VBAC that left me feeling incredibly strong and empowered. We cannot thank Rose enough for helping us through such an incredible life changing experience"
