Welcome to The Doula Collective! If you are here looking for a doula, congratulations to you and your loved ones as you wait for your newest addition to enter the world! You are off to a great start in considering a doula as you research your birthing options.
As a collective, we are committed to supporting you emotionally and physically not only through labour but also throughout your childbearing year. In addition to birth doula services, we offer childbirth preparation classes, prenatal yoga, reiki, and belly blessings and rituals to help you prepare for and enjoy the experience of welcoming your little one into your family. Please look around and let us know if you have any questions or would like to book a complementary interview with one of our doulas.
Many studies show that women who use a birth doula are:
less likely to request epidurals
less likely to have caesareans
less likely to need pain medication
more likely to experience shorter labours
more likely to have positive memories of childbirth
"If a doula were a drug,
it would be unethical not to use it."
