Toronto Doula

TORONTO DOULA SERVICES

A doula’s role is to support you with the utmost respect, care and commitment. During pre and post delivery, as well as, through the three stages of birth: early, active and transition. Together we create your ideal birth plan. Your doula advocates this plan and wishes on your behalf, so that you may focus on what’s important.

Studies show that when faced with the challenges of childbirth, coping skills and birth plans are quickly forgotten. This can result in making stressful decisions that deviate unnecessarily from the intended plan.

More importantly, studies also show that those who have chosen the support of a doula are less likely to have medical intervention, complications or a negative affiliation with their labour and birthing experience.

Here at MOLO we pride ourselves on offering the best emotional, physical and informational support to our clients. All throughout bump, baby and beyond. We not only care about our clients, we’re also inspired by them. After all, nothing is more sacred than a Mother’s Love.

Even if you’re wondering, “Am I really in labour?”, we’re on-call for you at any time and ready to jump out of bed at 3am to join you at your home or hospital.

We don’t disappear after your baby is born. We stay with you until you and your baby are settled in and if you’re choosing to breastfeed we make sure that it’s off to a good start. During your hospital stay we are still available by phone or text for any questions or concerns you might have, and upon your return home we arrange our postpartum follow-up visit. At this visit we can discuss anything that might be on your mind, and make sure that your transition into parenthood is as seamless as possible. You always have the option to arrange for new baby postpartum care, but regardless we continue to be available by phone or e-mail for the first 6 weeks.
