Not Sure if a Doula is Right for You?

Is cost an issue? No problem! We understand budget concerns all too well, especially as your family grows. It’s not always easy to add something extra into the budget. For that reason, we offer differently sized packages and payment plans. We also offer gift certificates – just let people know that you’d like that for a baby gift! We also offer a Community Support Fund for those who need a little bit extra help with making it work within their budget. Please ask!

Already have family and friend support? Wonderful! We can fill in for the times that family and friends are unable to be there so that your main support system can stay fresh. You can be sure that we are an unbiased sounding board for any worry or concern you may have. We are also fully versed in the changes that a birthgiver’s body goes through during birth and the postpartum period. Want to chat about how a West Kootenay Postpartum Doula can help?
