Birth Doula Services

We have four packages available to meet the individual needs of families in Ottawa and the surrounding areas.

Our packages are built with everyone in mind. You're unique and so are your needs. We've got something for everyone - from those feeling very confident, to those wanting a package to take them from education through birth, to those wanting doula support before, during, and after. 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 for the birth of your baby.

National Capital Doulas offers each client the expertise, care and support of our experienced birth doulas. During the prenatals and comfort measures you will meet and get to know your doula and her dedicated back up. They will also get to know you, what your preferences are and how they can provide you with what you need most. Your birth doula will also come to your home following your baby's birth to follow up with you, answer your questions, and ensure you're settling into parenthood. 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.

We support families birthing at all local hospitals - Civic Hospital and General Hospital, Queensway Carleton Hospital, Montfort Hospital, Gatineau Hospital, Almonte General Hospital, and Winchester Hospital. We also travel to the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre and the Maison de naissance de l’Outaouais. We support families birthing at home throughout the Ottawa, Outaouais, and surrounding areas.
