I will happily meet with any family interested in services. Edmonton is lucky to have a thriving community of doulas and it is a priority of mine that each family has an opportunity to find the right one for them.
A Prenatal Visit
This visit will be used to clarify timelines and support preferences so that all the technicalities are taken care of before baby is born.
As a postpartum doula I have received training on topics that include but are not limited to breastfeeding, postpartum mental health, and newborn care. If something comes up that is beyond my training, I will happily make an appropriate referral.
Postpartum doula training places a major emphasis on breastfeeding education That said, the physical and emotional wellbeing of you and your child are always the top priority whether it be through breastmilk or formula.
Newborn & Household Care
Postpartum support can also include basic housekeeping, meal prep, newborn care, baby laundry and more.
The transition to parenthood, whether it be your first or fifth baby, is often accompanied by major changes. A postpartum doula can act as a source of support through this transition and make appropriate mental health referrals.
" Tia came into our lives at the perfect time. My mom was going back to the NWT and as a new mom I was feeling nervous. I never thought about having a doula but the opportunity came and I am very happy we got the experience! Tia was extremely knowledgeable with breastfeeding, latching, milk storage, babywearing and any other questions I had. If it wasn’t for the help and guidance from Tia I may not have been so successful with breastfeeding. We are so thankful for our experience with Tia and we look forward to having her as our doula for our next baby in the future. Thank you so much Tia! " - KV, TM, and Baby C
