Personalized birth doula care for your birthing journey
Most parents feel overwhelmed as they enter parenthood- I know, I have been there!
Navigating the physical and emotional journey of birth and pregnancy can be challenging. Adding an experienced birth doula to your team has many documented benefits like increasing birth satisfaction or increasing your chance of vaginal birth and shorter labour.
As your birth doula and prenatal fitness specialist, I am dedicated to offering you personalized, compassionate and steadfast support.
Birth Doula Support: When we decide to work together, I am on-call for your birth and I am available to answer your questions by email, phone or text throughout your pregnancy. I will coach you through early labour and will come to your home when you need me. Or depending on your situation (fast birth, induction, cesarean, etc), I will meet you at your place of birth. Either way, I offer you CONTINOUS physical, emotional and informational support for you (and your team) for the duration of your birth and the 1-2 hours after your baby arrives.

"Erin's presence at the delivery was well worth the cost, especially for first-timers like us who were nervous. She actually helped me rock the unplanned epidural in a way my husband was not ready to do because he was just as nervous. Her calm demeanour helped everyone in the delivery room, despite a long and somewhat stressful inducing of labour. "
- Kara and John
"Erin accompanied my husband and me during my scheduled c-section and was such a calming and reassuring presence. She helped me feel calm during the procedure and was also there to take pictures and hold the baby while my husband was at my side. Such a welcome support during an otherwise scary time. When she visited post-partum she brought a delicious meal and was always available for questions via text/phone... and there were many! I'd highly recommend her."
- Monica and Andreas
"We absolutely loved having Erin as our doula for the birth of our first baby, so much so that she is pretty much the first person we called when we learned of my second pregnancy! Her presence is comforting and pleasant, while her expertise regarding the choices that occur during labour as well as her help with managing the pain of childbirth without medication was invaluable. She is 100% committed to her clients, regardless of how long labour lasts or when it starts. I could not recommend her enough."
