Pregnancy and birth have enough confusion surrounding them. Choosing who will support you at your birth shouldn't add to it.
As your Winnipeg doula, I'm here to help you create positive memories surrounding your birthing days-- whatever those look like to you. Embrace Birth Services follows you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period, digging deep to get to know you and how to best support the birth that you desire and anticipate.
That looks different for everyone, and those differences are a beautiful thing.
A doula is a trained and experienced labor companion. She's a birth professional whose goal is a positive birth experience for you. As your Winnipeg doula, I will meet you during active labor and provide encouragement and assistance during your birth- kind of like a mini cheerleader and tour guide all wrapped together- one who knows all the secret tricks and tips to make your experience a positive one.
Still not entirely sure what having a doula would look like during your birth? Check out this recent blog I shared.
A doula is there for you no matter what your ideal birth looks like.
From planned epidurals or cesarean births in the hospital to homebirth parties or hypnobirthing at the Birth Centre, I'm there to support the birth you want. And if you're not really sure yet, that's ok too! We'll talk during your pregnancy and I'm there to answer any questions you may have.
You tell me your hopes and I'm there to encourage, empower and support you.
