Winnipeg Doula

Welcome to Embrace Birth Services, your Winnipeg Doula

Are you looking for a Winnipeg Doula? You’re in the right place. Grab yourself a cup of tea, a small snack, settle in and take a look around.

Embrace Birth Services offers a doula support that is holistic. We believe birth is more than a physical experience. For many, it is emotional, spiritual, and even transformative. The hours you spend in labor and birthing a baby are moments that will be forever ingrained in your memory- and support of a doula who understands more than just the mechanics of birth can be so important in how those moments feel to you days, months and even years later. As your Winnipeg doula, I am there working alongside you through the highs and the lows.

When you hire Embrace Birth Services as your doula, I will be there with you every step of the way. Each surge that comes on can feel exciting, but also intimidating and a bit scary. Each time you need a reminder of your power, a cool cloth, a gentle massage, your doula will be there by your side, helping you to embrace this birth and embrace your strength.

As a doula, I am there for you. Not your care provider, not the hospital. I am there to meet your needs during the birth of your child, whatever they may be. I can enhance your laboring experience through informational support, massage, touch relaxation, and other non-medical physical and emotional support. A doula’s job may be as complex as suggesting position changes and aiding in those movements while providing counter pressure for a sore back, or as simple as whispered affirmations and having a cool cloth waiting when needed. No task is too big or too small.

The presence of a doula at my own labor confirmed my belief that every birthing person in the world should have access to the wonderful, calming presence of a doula. A doula does not take the place of your partner, but rather can help your partner remain confident during this time by providing information and extra support and encouragement to all involved. The birthing room can be a very overwhelming place, and having a doula present allows the partner to be present in the birth at the level which they are comfortable. This may mean that they are the primary support person, with the doula providing guidance and taking over only at times when they need a short break, or they may feel more comfortable providing verbal encouragement and love while your doula is the main support. Whatever your comfort level- a doula is there to support the entire family in childbirth- never to take away from their experience.

We will meet during your pregnancy to discuss your plans, desires and fears, and how we can work together as a doula team to make your dream birth come to life. During your labor, as your Winnipeg doula I will provide physical, emotional and informational support specifically tailored to the experience that you are looking for. Labor can be a bit like a dance, and in this dance, you take the lead. The support that I give as your doula is customized to the needs and desires you have for your ideal birth.

So why choose Embrace Birth Services? Because I believe each one of you deserves to feel power in this experience, to feel unconditional support and belief in your abilities and your unique journey. To know that no matter what path your labor takes- you have someone by your side at each and every turn. Labor and childbirth can be one of the best, most memorable experiences in your life, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to share it with you.
