Birth Doula Services

Our doulas are there for you starting during your pregnancy, all the way to the early postpartum period. We are available to our clients on the phone, or over email and text to answer questions with evidence based information and to provide you with non-judgemental support in the decisions you make.

At prenatal meetings we will discuss your concerns, preferences and wishes for childbirth. We will also work on creating a birth plan with you and your partner. We can inform you about your options in childbirth, and teach you about different pain management and relaxation techniques.

At Chatham-Kent Birth Services we support all types of births – whether you are delivering in a hospital or at home, with midwives, doctors, or OBs. Our support is unconditional and unwavering and we stand with you in your choices for a non-medicated, medicated or caesarean birth.
