As Your Doula, My Role Is...

Birth Doula Support Service in Calgary Alberta Birth Boot Camp DOULA YYC

Doulas provide skilled relational & physical support during pregnancy & labour.

What does this mean?

As your doula, my role is to build a relationship based on trust with you during our prenatal sessions. You are empowered & I support you!

Your prenatal session is a time for us to build trust & talk about your birth wishes. My job is to find out how you relax, build trust & listen. One of my best skills is listening!

I come with a knowledge of physiological birth as well as being well informed on evidence based interventions and cesarean birth. I encourage you to educate yourself on birth, whether with Birth Boot Camp childbirth classes or another series. I trust in your ability to make decisions. I trust in your choice of care provider and your choice of birth place. I provide feedback when asked, but I do not give medical advice nor do I speak on your behalf. I am your birth support, not your birth advocate. You are your own advocate as I cannot take power when it is not mine to take.

Are you looking for a certified doula in or around Calgary, Alberta? I'd love to be interviewed by you and your birth partner, if you have one. Contact me through the website or call me at 403-805-6326!

With Love & Light,

Laurie McGowan
