"Alannah was an incredible doula and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a doula to support them through birth." - Shannon, client
"Our birth story would not be our birth story without Sam. She was born to do this amazing career and it totally shows every time you are around her. We are so blessed and thankful that she was on our birth team and helped us achieve our natural home birth!" - Vanessa, client
Lake Country Doulas are committed to providing our clients with caring, unbiased support throughout pregnancy, birth, and the immediate postpartum period.
As a Lake Country client, you will have unlimited access to your doula via email, text and phone call in the weeks leading up to your birth. Through prenatal visits (or 'mini birth classes' as we call them!) you will learn everything you need to know about birth! At these visits, we will work with you on a birth plan that you and your partner are comfortable with, as well as teach you hands-on comfort measures and relaxation techniques that will give you confidence as you await the arrival of you new addition! Your doula will never replace your partner (unless asked to) and will work to make sure they are involved in the birthing process as much or as little as they desire.
When labour begins, your doula will come be with you as soon as she is needed, and she will stay with you throughout the duration of your labour and delivery. She will administer massage, gently coach your breathing and help you implement the relaxation techniques you learned during the visits. Your doula will help you stay focused, calm and encouraged all throughout your birth.
Once baby is born, your doula will help with that first latch and then fade into the sunset as you, your partner and baby enjoy getting to know one another.
Once you are settled with baby at home, your doula will come for a postpartum follow-up visit (or two!) to check that everything is smooth sailing. If help is needed, your doula will be there to lend a hand.
