Calgary Birth Doula - Cute Newborn

Doula is a professional specialized in providing continuous emotional support (encouragement and reassurance), physical comfort and assistance with comfort measures, as well as assistance in getting information. During pregnancy and birth or at home with your new baby, a skilled doula understands your needs and is able to assist you based on those needs.

Many Calgary women are finding that the presence of a professional doula has improved their experience throughout their childbearing time and the first year with their new baby.

We offer the support of both labor and postpartum doulas to meet your care needs from pregnancy test and beyond! Professional support can help you avoid or manage postpartum depression and other mood disorders and give you the confidence you need to embrace parenthood!

UNLIMITED SUPPORT

We offer each of our labor clients a prenatal visit, where we discuss your goals and desires for birth, clarify our expectations of one another, and provide you with useful tools for labor and birth. You can expect up-to-date information and complete support whether you desire an unmedicated birth, are hoping for an epidural or other pharmacological pain relief or are planning cesarean section.  We can paint an in-depth picture of what birth may look like based on your individual preferences and conditions. During your prenatal visit, you’ll receive birth plan guidance to help you identify your goals and preferences for labor and birth. For more in-depth preparation, you may also book additional prenatal visits.

SET GOALS AND PLAN FOR YOUR BIRTH

Questions and concerns during pregnancy? No more waiting until your doctor’s office opens! When you hire our doulas, you always have access to support via email, telephone, and text. You can reach out to your doula at any time during your pregnancy, in early labor and for several weeks after your baby’s birth; longer if you are a postpartum doula client.

Chinook City Doulas doesn’t have an “on-call period”. Be reassured that we are committed to attending your birth from the very first day, whether you have your baby prior to term, on your “due date” or your little one needs more time. When you do go into labor your doula is ready to join you as soon as you want her. She is a calming presence who helps you and your partner move toward your vision for your baby’s birth.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEEL ALONE

Our clients find the transition into parenthood is no longer scary when their doula is by their side. You won’t be left alone immediately after birth wondering how to care for yourself or your baby. You will be off to the best possible start with feeding by having customized and private support with breastfeeding or bottle feeding. You can expect to be shown comfortable positions to nourish your baby and receive lots of encouragement. You’re going to do great!

When going home, a postpartum doula is invaluable and the first line of defense against postpartum depression. We recommend you book a few hours of postpartum care as a continuation of the solid support you receive from your birth doula. If you do not choose to have postpartum care your birth doula provides a one hour follow visit. It will feel great to process your birth experience with an objective witness and talk about how you’re adjusting to life as a new parent.

We would love to discuss how our doulas can be a valuable part of your birth team! Our doulas support families planning a cesarean birth, expecting a home-birth and everything in between. We attend births in Calgary and the surrounding areas. Please contact us for package details.
