Home Birth Doula
OUR HOME BIRTH DOULA SERVICE:
We advocate for midwifery care and home birth as options for choice in care provider and place of birth for low risk, healthy pregnant persons.
Our home birth doula care includes everything in our standard doula care offering and more. Our home birth doula service fully prepares couples to birth at home. They’re totally cared for while birthing at home and for some hours after, until they’re ready for quiet family time. We ensure families receive comprehensive instructions and assistance with setup for being at home.
For those planning a water birth, we offer complimentary use of birth pool and accessories (value $400).
We would be happy to discuss our specialized home birth doula care with you whether you have planned for a home birth or are considering it.

“Fortunately for my husband and I our first interview for a doula was with Debra. Immediately we knew we found the person we wanted to be with us, when we would bring our first child into the world. And since then, she was also with us to bring in our second son. Knowing that Debra has been passionate about caring for pregnant mothers and loves being at home births was really important to us. Debra's energy is very calming and help set the tone for 2 beautiful water births at home. She was supportive and loving. She coached and guided me through my contractions. She truly embodied what I hoped a perfect doula would be. My births were beautiful, wonderful experiences and she played an important role in creating that.”

“We are really pleased to have selected Debra as our Doula for the birth of our first child. It was so reassuring having her there for us when things got tough. Her support through active labour was invaluable to ensure the successful home birth that we hoped for.
After a rocky start to breastfeeding and several trips to the breastfeeding clinic, it was Debra's support and knowledge that was able to take us the last mile. Three months in we have a very happy baby, who's nursing like there's no tomorrow!”

"Debra was an essential influence and integral supporter in the successful homebirth of our son this past fall. Our prenatal meetings with Debra had a direct impact on the choice we made, as she provided her professional opinion on various issues and decisions. She was our best resource for articles, studies and video on birth and birthing. Her years of experience, intuition and strength of character made our birth experience very empowering, positive and memorable. Debra also worked with us after the birth of our son to support us during the early weeks. She provides exceptional post natal care for new families. We highly recommend Debra and if we have another child, we will insist she be there!"
