From belly to birth…
a peaceful passage
EDMONTON'S ORIGINAL SHARED-CARE DOULA PARTNERSHIP
MEET THE DOULAS
I have lived in Edmonton for most of my life and have five children of my own. I never had the experience of choice for birth. Three of my five sons were born with medical induction, one with limited interventions and one was birthed by c-section. There were not many choices for women when I was birthing my children.
Every woman, family, birth and babe is unique; to me this means that there is no one-size-fits-all doula formula! I have two children of my own, one born in the hospital and the second born at home. I’ve personally experienced the value in doula support in both settings and the difference it makes to a mother to be in control, positive, and informed of all possible choices.
I believe that birth can and should be an empowering experience and I believe my role as a doula is to support the empowerment of child bearing women and their families. My goal is to offer women the resources and information they need in order to make the best choices for themselves, their families and their babies. No two births are ever the same—we are all unique.
