Gentle Touch Doula Services

Phone: 647-781-2135

Birth Fee: $100 to $500

Fee Details: My services include 3 prenatal visits, attendance during labour and birth as well as one postpartum visit. During my prenatal visits I review your birthing wishes, your fears, concerns and other special requests. I educate mothers and partners on labour and delivery positions and comfort measures. We also practice these moves before birth. I educate parents about caring for a newborn. We cover diapering, feeding (breast or bottle), clothing, and day to day care. I also review postpartum care of the mother. During labour and birth I am in full attendance. During labour I provide many techniques to help ease any discomfort. I also play an advocacy role to help insure that your birthing wishes are being met. During my postpartum visit we discuss the birth and I address any concerns that you may have. I answer any questions about newborn care and present you with a birth story. It is a nice reminder of the most special moment in your life.
