At home births, we have the opportunity to create the atmosphere in which you feel most safe and comfortable to go deep into labour. I bring a loving presence and guidance to you and act as a liasen between you and those around you, to make sure that your needs are being met, and that you feel encouraged to follow your bodies' needs.

We had our first birth with Lianne in December 2016. We were very nervous to go through this the first time so we decided to have a doula by our side. Lianne was very supportive the whole way through from the first couple meetings we had at our home, to being there every step of the way during the labour and childbirth, and to finally meeting again at home for a post-natal visit. She has such a gentle quiet warmth about her when we met her so right from the get-go, we immediately felt a sense of calm and comfort. Lianne is a spiritual doula who really encouraged us to try to understand and pull out from deep within how we wanted our childbirth journey to be. She did some body work on me on several occasions and I enjoyed the massages immensely as she knew where all my troubled spots were. Throughout the process, she was strong, caring, considerate, and respectful. She had a very good knowledge on the child birth process and while she encouraged the natural way, she was open our birthing choices which included an epidural. Lianne was by my side the whole time and our labour was drawn out to close to 24 hours, not to mention her being there when we had a false alarm when my contractions had just first started. During my labour, she was very encouraging giving me bursts of energy and renewed hope the whole time. We truly felt that she offers support and care right from her heart and would definitely recommend her to others who are searching for a doula. We can happily answer any questions and give a reference.
