Island Doula Services

Birth Packages


Classic Package:


One free consultation with a doula avaliable for your due date. This does not obligate you to choose our doula services. This is a time for you to become acquainted and explore your labour and birth preferences.

  • Two prenatal visits. This is a time for us to go over your birth preferences and effective coping techniques. Your doula also wants to get to know you (and your partner) and learn how you can work together during labour and birth. These visits are tailored to you, if you are planning a hospital birth or a home birth your doula will guide you to a birth where you feel supported and encouraged.
  • On call 24/7 beginning two weeks before your due date and ending two weeks after your baby is born.
  • Labour support as soon as you need it. This includes effective non-medical support techniques including physical comfort measures and emotional support. It is always a doula’s goal to maintain a calm and peaceful birth environment. Doula’s are also experts at helping you get the information necessary to make informed decisions during labour
  • Your doula will remain with you once active labour has begun until one or two hours after your baby is born. During this time they can assist with breastfeeding and ensure you are comfortable and settled before they go home.
