Sunita Prowse

Birth & postpartum doula services, birth photography and conscious parenting support. 

Allow me to share these tender moments of life with you and your family and together we can strive for an empowering birth and postpartum experience.
 

I received my birth doula training through DONA in 2017 and later completed my postpartum training through Doula Canada. In these courses there was an emphasis on postpartum depression awareness, breastfeeding and the art of mothering the mother.
 

I believe pregnancy is about nourishing the baby and postpartum is about nourishing the mother. Ask me about my cooking services and how I can help you and your family within the first year after birth with nutritious and delicious meals.

 

Having been a full time nanny for several years, I naturally took an interest in child raising and the unique relationships between parents and young ones. As a postpartum doula, I would like to offer insight to alternative and conscious parenting methods that I have gathered over the years. I believe that babies are whole, complete humans from the day they arrive into the world. With that in mind,
we can understand the importance of building respectful relationships from infancy and beyond.

 

I also offer photography services as part of my package and this includes 15-30 photos taken at birth and/or during my postpartum visits.

 

I have been blessed with the opportunity to witness the natural physiology of birthing at home and I do my best to inspire an intervention-free labour. As a new doula, I will be offering my services at a reduced rate with a sliding scale. Please contact me for more details. I’m looking forward to sharing space with you~

Birth and Postpartum

Training: Birth Warrior Project Doula Training, Indie Birth 

Student of Holistic Sexual and Reproductive Health Educator 

It would be my honour to support you throughout your pregnancy journey. 

I believe that every family should be held, witnessed and listened to during this pivotal moment. With my services I offer many tools to prepare for this rite of passage. Without judgment, I listen open hearted to the mother as she maps out her most desirable birth plan. Together, we move through some of the fears that may interfere with intuition. During the birth I encourage a dialogue of informed consent. I provide postpartum care to support the transition after birth and remain connected until mother and baby feel nested.

Kristin Thiessen

Certified Holistic Doula (Pacific Rim College), Certified Bodywork Therapist (Vancouver School of Healing Arts) Certified in Prenatal Massage, Reiki Level 1, Certified Mother Roaster (Art of Sacred Post Partum).  

It matters how we bring our babies into this world. As a birth keeper, my priority is to be with women and birthing families. I’m here to reflect your strength and support what matters most to you in the unfolding of your birth experience.

 

In the current maternity care system, the doula is the only member of the birth team that is chosen by the birthing family. It is an honour to be trusted with this responsibility! I am dedicated to providing empowering information, and helping you access the knowledge and resources that build confidence and preparedness. 

 

I am fascinated with the physiology of birth, with the innate power of the feminine body, and ways to integrate traditional wisdom in the childbearing year. I want to contribute to generating culture that honours the Mother.

 

I am also a professional bodyworker, and bring gifts of healing touch. I believe that all pregnant and postpartum bodies require loving, intelligent contact to thrive. I offer a spectrum of hands on care that includes pregnancy massage and mother warming services after birth. It is a joy to be of service in these ways!
