Taking the time to pick a doula for your birth is an important step in building the team you want to be present at your labour.

Here are some tips and ideas from ‘babylist’ on what you can ask your Naturopathic doula when you meet:

After all is said and done, how you feel during and after the meet-and-greet is just as important as the answers to all of the questions. For instance:

  • Was the Naturopathic Doula able to create an environment where you felt like you could be yourself and comfortable?
  • Did you feel rushed in your questions?
  • Did it feel like a good “fit”?
  •  

Our doulas at Erin Mills Optimum health are also Naturopathic Doctors and all have years of experience with supporting moms in the Mississauga Area!
