I AM WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
Why is Mentoring important?
A mentor provides continuity of care, in an impartial and empathetic way. With a mentor to call on, you do not need to guess your way or hope for the best. You can bounce your ideas and feelings off the mentor, without fear of judgement. You can request information they have gained through experience, meaning you don't need to reinvent the wheel. You forge on, building on the knowledge and becoming your own expert.
I receive you with empathy and give you space to Own Your Journey.
The Ultimate Doula Package begins with Birth Preparation and supports you until your Baby's First Birthday. See below for the full service descriptions and options.
As a Birth Cartographer, Master of Science Communication, certified Breastfeeding Educator and Counsellor, certified doula and (most importantly) an experienced Mother, you can ask me questions, share your feelings and tell me your story. Together we will create your Birth Map. During this time we get to know one another; I understand you, your needs and your unique circumstances. I offer you continuity of care through out this time and as you await the birth. Your fourth trimester is an important time, as you transition into your new life. This is a time to be honoured, I support you as an information resource, an ear to listen, a shoulder for support. On your terms, as you need it. This care can continue right through until your baby's First Birthday. Continuity of Care gives you reassurance and informational support, free of judgement.
