I hold a DONA International Birth Doula Certification. I started my Doula career in Langley, BC and am happy to now be residing in Stony Plain, Alberta. I provide a calm, encouraging and non-judgmental service, understanding that each birth is unique and must be supported wholeheartedly. I provide use of my Maternity TENS machine during the course of your labor, as well as offer resources, books, advice and counseling. I absolutely love working and volunteering with my teen and young adult single mamas. I provide Doula services not only to first-time parents, but also especially to parents who had a previous birth experience for which they were not supported nor happy with. If you are a parent looking for a birth do-over, please consider me. I would be happy to meet with you and discuss the advantages of having a Doula present for your birth and what the benefits can and will be!! I also will accept last-minute clients for those who decide later on in pregnancy that a doula would be a welcomed presence. Please e-mail for more information and the services that I offer at email@example.com. Meet and greets are free so you can decide if I might be the person with whom you would like to work with.

I sought out the services of a doula to help with my wish to have an unmedicated birth. After my initial meeting with Sylvie, I felt she was the right fit as she was very warm, kind, gracious and had an overall pleasant demeanor. Her own birth experiences gave me hope that I could have a positive unmedicated birth. Sylvie is a great listener and very respectful of my birth experience wishes. She loaned me a TENS machine and book on natural births, both of which I made very good use of. The book in particular offered a lot of insight on the birthing process and helpied me visualize my ideal birth. Sylvie was quick to help where needed and offered helpful resources. Through our interactions I was able to build my confidence in achieving my ideal birth and ultimately it came to fruition. Thanks Sylvie!
When I first met Sylvie I absolutely loved her straight from the start. I appreciated her kindness and enthusiasm the most. It felt like, for the first time during my pregnancy, that I could be excited and happy about it. Sylvie quickly began to feel like family, checking in on my on a weekly basis, and then daily as I got closer to my due date. My birth plan had originally requested no medications of any kind, and with Sylvie's quiet encouragement, I managed to go almost all the way through labour without. (I ended up having an emergency C-section, so at that point medication was necessary) I am so very grateful to have had Sylvie as my doula. She helped me feel empowered and strong and fearless. She went above and beyond I think, and even set up my religious altar in the hospital for me. She answered all of my questions and because of her, I pushed to stay informed throughout my birth. I don't think giving birth would have been as wonderful or magical without her. :)
