Naturopathic Doula Care Services

The reason for having a Doula at your birth is to help make the experience a comfortable and joyful one for you and your baby. She provides physical and emotional support throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and postpartum. A Doula will provide information ahead of time so that parents can make informed choices for their birth plan and feel a sense of empowerment.

Doula Care Services

Having a Doula present at your birth decreases rates of medical intervention substantially (such as oxytocin, epidurals and C-sections). Women report feeling a sense of accomplishment and have better overall impression of their birth experience with a Doula at their side.

A Doula works along with the women’s partner and their primary health care provider (midwife, OB or family doctor). She does not “catch” the baby. She is there solely to support the parents or parent to be. Naturopathic Doulas can provide support such as acupuncture or acupressure, homeopathic remedies, suggestions for position changes during labour, provide emotional support for the woman, provide massage and many more.

What Do Your Doula Services Include?

  • One complimentary “meet and greet”
  • Two prenatal appointments
  • Attendance at the time of birth
  • One postnatal appointment

Kirsten Almon, ND and Kajal Chohan ND provide Naturopathic Doula services at Erin Mills Optimum Health.

Please contact the clinic for more details.

We are so honoured to be a supportive presence for pregnant and birthing women in our community. We want to spread the word on how wonderful doula care is and how it significantly decreases intervention while in labour and empowers women in their birth experience. This is an adorable and informative video on doula care from a doula in Singapore:
