Birth and Postpartum Doula Services
Holistic + Evidence-Based Doula Care
My doula care is holistic, its evidence-based and based on the know that birth is natural function of life. Every woman should be provided with all the information she wants and need to made the best choices for her body. I approach your care in birth and postpartum considering your physical, emotional, social, economic, and spiritual needs.
Everyone’s journey to parenthood is different. We explore your views, wants & expectations together with the knowledge that together we are creating a unique plan to support you and your goals.
“Though her assistance was remote, she provided so much knowledge and support from early pregnancy through to the first several months after birth. Our learning about the birthing process really empowered us and enabled us to have thoughtful discussions with our medical team. I felt a sense of ownership throughout the process. Some discouraged me from having a natural delivery and historically I’ve been known to have a low pain tolerance but with God you can truly do anything and I’m so glad He blessed us with Stacy.”
“We welcomed our youngest son into the world via an emergency c-section. A few days postpartum, I returned to the hospital for a week with complications. Due to the pandemic, I was not with my baby, family, or friends. Stacy-Ann arrived prepared to assist our family. When my husband opened the door to greet her, she asked him, “What is one thing you hope to accomplish today.” He replied, “Survive and make it through the day.” Stacy-Ann’s empathy, understanding, and experience carried us all.”
“Having Stacy as my Doula was the best decision I made when I was pregnant. Stacy helped me with everything from rehoming my dog to making sure I was prepared to birth my child. She was attentive to my entire family and provided us with excellent resources. I’ve recommended her to my family and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula or lactation consultant.”
“Stacy-Ann was loving and encouraging, and understood what I had been through. She continued to help me care for myself and the children. She brought a sense of calm to a hectic, emotionally draining situation. Most importantly, I could focus on my recovery without worrying how we’d get through it all. I cannot say enough positive things about Stacy-Ann. She is part of our family and will always be. We are forever grateful we crossed paths.”
I believe that birth is about making confident mothers.
I approach each birth and client with intention and focused energy. It is my intention to create a positive, open, warm and life affirming experience for moms, dads and their families in the journey through pregnancy and childbirth. I am called to support women and their birth partners, as well as moms birthing alone.
I believe that how a woman is cared for during her pregnancy and birth matters. It can make the difference in empowering her or devaluing her. I believe that your partner is a vital part of your birth, journey and support, therefore, I am present to support your partner too.
I come to your home immediately following your delivery to provide education, nonjudgmental support, companionship, and to assist with newborn care and family adjustment.
Daytime and overnight care available. I offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery after childbirth, infant soothing and coping skills for new parents.
I am trained in postpartum adjustment, newborn characteristics, care, feeding, development, and the promotion of parent-infant bonding.
"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."
