Birth Doula Services

We have two different labour support packages depending on your needs.

Our basic package is perfect for the woman who has been there done that and our package with more prenatal and postnatal support is great for first time moms or families looking for something more. Our unique approach allows us to accept clients in every stage of pregnancy so it's never too early or late to hire National Capital Doulas to support you during labour.

National Capital Doulas offers each client the expertise, care and support of our doula team, which consists of two highly trained birth doulas. During the prenatals and comfort measures you will work one on one with each of them. They will get to know you, what your preferences are and how they can best support you. They follow an on call rotation for labour and birth support and you will receive postpartum follow up from the doula at your birth. Set up a complimentary meeting today.

Our unique structure ensures you will always know and have built a relationship with the doula that supports you on your baby's birth day. It also provides you with access to a wealth of knowledge and experience to pull from. We look forward to being by your side during this transformative time in your life.

Both birth support packages include

telephone and email support * access to our extensive lending library * on call from the time the deposit and signed agreement are received * a review of comfort measures, birth planning and infant feeding information * TENS unit access * continuous support during labour and birth
