What Is a Doula

PROFESSIONAL, CONTINUOUS SUPPORT

Doula is a word with Greek origins meaning “a woman who serves.” Today, a doula refers to a labour companion - a trained professional who will provide the emotional, physical and informational support before, during and after childbirth. A doula does not support the medical needs during labour, but research shows that women need fewer medical interventions when they have a doula by their side.

Paula Cole

I Support all types of birth, whether it be home or hospital, medicated or non medicated, single or multiples, first babies or third. I believe that we all have the right to choose to birth the way we want and feel supported in our decisions. I am a doula with a passion to support and educate families with their choices through pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. I also provide breastfeeding support In the postpartum period. I am a mother of 5 wonderful children that have added exceptional amounts of knowledge to my work. It excites me to pass on the old knowledge of birth that has somehow been lost in our modern times.  I believe that all parents should be supported through such a transformational time in their lives. Knowledge is power.

Doulas At Your Doorstep

IT TAKES AN ISLAND

Coordinated Postpartum Doula Services on Salt Spring Island.
 

The early weeks with a new baby are exciting - they may also be challenging and overwhelming. New families need a tremendous amount of support and information. Postpartum Doulas can assist during this precious time in ways that are suited to your style and needs: from traditions that “mother the mother” to demystifying the application of modern wisdom

A postpartum doula can help families with breastfeeding support, taking care of the mother and newborn, finding resources/information, cooking, laundry, taking care of other children, and other light housekeeping that allows the mother to get the rest and care she needs.

Postpartum doulas are certified, have Infant First Aid and CPR training, a criminal record check and Foodsafe certification.  

Doulas At Your Doorstep postpartum services are valued at $25/hour.  The Salt Spring Island Doula Collective is fundraising in order to be able to provide postpartum services at a reduced rate for families in need by
.the winter 2019-2020.  For further information about Doulas At Your Doorstep please contact Vanya at #250 931 3108 or vanyasforest@gmail.com
