Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

As Doulas, we accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. Educated through both Wise Woman Way of Birth Doula Training and Douglas College and Certified through DONA, Doulas of North America, we draw on our knowledge and experience to provide emotional support and physical comfort during your pregnancy, labour and delivery. We can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labor progress, help with relaxation, massage, positioning and other techniques for comfort. As your Doulas, we are working for you, not your caregiver or hospital. Our Doula Collective contains three birth doulas, as well as two postpartum doulas. We operate using an on-call schedule, similar to that of midwives and obstetricians. This system allows for a well rested doula 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your birth. We each have a vast array of experience and specialty training which we share among the collective to broaden our overall scope of tricks and tools. I offer breastfeeding phone support for new mothers who may be experiencing breastfeeding challenges. All of our doulas have experience with twins, VBACs, HBACs first time mothers, anxiety and more.

Janel

Trisha came and helped our family with our son when he was 4 weeks old. She was so calm and gentle with him I felt completely comfortable right away. She shared the knowledge she has accumulated over years as a mother and all the families she has helped along the way. I really appreciated the insight and the company at such a tender time in my life. I highly recommend her services. :)
