Hear from our Community

"Erin supported me through the uncertainty of birth, getting in the right mindset and having a comfort measures plan. My husband was so appreciative of her support and experience as well since this was all a first for him too. Erin also helped me in early postpartum days when I really needed some time for self-care and emotional support adjusting to this new reality. "

Racheal and James, Ottawa First Time Parents

"I am sooo glad a friend recommended Christine to us. She was an absolutely essential part of my first pregnancy and birth. She seems to have an endless source of comfort and love and knows exactly when to offer it up! At one point during the birth, she was massaging my husband's back while he was massaging me! I can't imagine having gone through the process without her."

Navigating the Realities of Newborn Sleep

There is no bigger transition in our lives than having a baby. Adjusting to the needs of a new little human can bring its challenges and learning curve. As a Postpartum Doula for the past 10 years, most of the families I have worked with end up needing some type of support around sleep. Not only are new parents navigating their baby’s changing sleep and feeding patterns, they are also figuring out their new normal and how they as parents can get the amount of sleep they need to function.

Postpartum Recovery Tips: For Your Body and Mind

Your body has just done one of the most remarkable things it will ever do: grow another human being! After 9 months of waiting, you were probably excited to finally be home with your new baby. While much of your focus and energy during these early weeks and months are on your baby, remember that you also need to take care of yourself, too. Generally, most birth givers are cleared for sex and exercises by their doctor or midwife at the 6-week postpartum check-up appointment. Yet, a body that grows another human for 9 months can take much longer to heal and is in many ways forever changed not just physically but emotionally too.

Key Nutrients you need for Fertility and Pregnancy
