Birth Doula Services
I would be honoured to attend your birth as your profession support person. My role as your doula is to provide you with continuous emotional, physical and informational support throughout your pregnancy and birth. I have experience and training in meditation, yoga, Spinning Babies, and other comfort measures to help you through your pregnancy and labour. I will also help you with establishing breastfeeding or bottle feeding. We will meet twice during your pregnancy to prepare your birth wishes, practice comfort measures and learn about life with a newborn. I'll be there with you at your home or hospital throughout your labour and birth. Afterwards, the continuous phone and text support will continue for the first 6 weeks postpartum. We will also meet after birth to discuss your experiences and any tips needed for feeding your baby.
Postpartum Doula Services
A postpartum doula is many things to many different families. My strengths are helping you determine your needs and filing that role to help you recover after birth. My services include the following: emotional support and guidance, feeding/Breastfeeding support, baby care suggestions (general care, sleep habits, bathing, gas and colic tips etc.), sibling entertainment, food preparation and light meals, housekeeping (laundry, dishes, etc.), grocery shopping and errands, overnight care. Postpartum services are available throughout the day or night depending on your needs.
I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things in life. As an experienced Birth and Postpartum Doula, I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible. I have trained with DONA International as well as Calm Birth, prenatal yoga and birth positioning and pelvic floor health. My clients often have fears about birth or motherhood that my calm presence, empathy and support can help to decrease.
What My Clients Say
Krista is a very kind person with a good energy that instantly puts you at ease. As I suffered with anxiety her ability to talk me down from a panic was amazing and not something most people can do for me. I found her to be very knowledgeable and helpful whenever I had a question, she often checked in with me to ensure I was doing well if she hadn't heard from me for a while. Krista was the voice I needed during a long hard labour. When my labour stopped progressing, and I needed a csection, having her there helped me know I had made a good informed decision and that I had tried everything possible to have a natural birth so I had no regrets.
