The word doula originates from Greece and means "female slave (or servant)".
I want to support you, walk with you, and be an encouragement on your journey.

In This Together
Like two peas in a pod, enjoy the comfort of support throughout your entire journey.
1. Doulas seem like a lot of money...
I get it! It can seem like a lot of money, however there is so much value to having a doula not only for your birth, but to journey along with you throughout pregnancy. My job doesn't start and end the day you give birth. On average, I spend about 45 hours supporting my clients whether that is during prenatal visits, phone/ text support, creating your birth preferences, offering you labour, birth, and postpartum support, and everything in between. Think of it this way - if you are willing to spend $10,000+ on your wedding (one of the biggest days of your life), what is holding you back from spending less than $1600 on one of the most transformational seasons in your life?
2. How do I choose the right package for me?
If you are a first time parent looking for all the support and education you can get, I would choose The Real Deal. If you are further along in your pregnancy or maybe this isn't your first baby, I would choose either The Basics or A Bit of Luxury, depending on how much postpartum support you would like. Please note that the "suggested timelines" are simply suggestions on when to hire me. You can hire me before or after these dates if you so choose.
3. Do you only offer services in Saskatoon?
If you are not local to the Saskatoon area, do not worry! I am happy to offer my services and support to you virtually.
4. Do you take insurance?
Most insurance plans do not offer coverage for doula services. However, some insurance companies allow you to submit doula services to your health spending account. Check with your insurance company to see if you may be covered.
5. How many due dates do you take per month?
I take 5-7 due dates per month. In the event that I am at another birth or am sick, I will offer a backup doula in my place. But trust me, I will do everything in my power to be at your birth. Even if it means attending births back to back.
6. My husband isn't on board with the idea of a doula. How can I convince him?
Oftentimes, I find that husband hesitation comes from a deeper place such as they feel their support alone isn't adequate, they don't want a doula judging them for the ways he supports his wife, or may feel as if a doula would step on his toes. None of which are true at all! I am there to support him, just as I am there to support you! Men interpret birth very differently so I encourage you to have a honest conversation with him and explain why you want a doula supporting you on your birth journey, your birth desires, and your feelings. I know he wants whats best for you! Booking a consultation with me is a great way for him to understand what I do and what support looks like. Please reach out!
