Dr. Wright is not accepting new doula clients at this time. Please check back again in the fall! In the meantime, check out West End Naturopathic Doulas
A birth doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides ongoing physical, emotional and educational support to a labouring woman before, during and after childbirth. Studies have shown that the presence of a doula can help shorten labour, result in fewer complications and contributes to a more positive birth experience. Additionally, babies are healthier and breastfeed more easily.
My own positive experience of home-birthing my first child inspired me to wish to support and empower other women through the childbirth process as a Naturopathic Birth Doula. I aim to provide gentle and caring support, and help couples make informed and empowered choices, so that they too can have beautiful and positive outcomes as they welcome their baby into the world. I have experience and am comfortable in all birth settings - home, hospital, birth centre, car (just kidding) - working alongside midwives, obstetrician/gynaecologists, nurses and other non-labouring partners to provide a safe and comfortable space for the labouring mother. I see it as a true honour to be invited into such a special time in one's life, and it's never lost on me how sacred this time is.
I understand that having someone present at such an intimate time in your life is a big deal. That's why I encourage you to be in touch for a complimentary meet and greet, so that we can see if we're a good fit. You can do so by completing the form below, and I will reply within 24 business hours.
