“To see the expression on the face of new parents when their baby has finally entered the world is indescribable, then to see the family members as they take in this precious addition to the family is so rewarding”
Hi, my name is Kristina, I’m going to be your labour / postpartum doula. I have 3 kids myself, 21, 20 and 13 and I’m an Aunt to a 5 year old and 7 month old.
When I was pregnant there were very few options when it came to giving birth and the support afterward. Now seeing the birthing options my sister had when she had her babies and the support that was offered to her after the birth was incredible. I have worked as a personal support worker for two years and absolutely love it! This has given me the opportunity to work with people in the most vulnerable stages of their lives, giving birth is definitely one of those stages. To see the expression on the face of new parents when their baby has finally entered the world is indescribable, then to see the family members as they take in this precious addition to the family is so rewarding.
To be apart of this special moment is a true honour. Helping others is something that I enjoy doing and I always love to find new ways to do so. I was so excited to become a doula and help women and couples during one of the most exciting journeys of their life! To be apart of the pregnancy, the birth, and then afterward is such a rewarding experience and is unique to each mother and family! The most exciting part for me is meeting the soon to be parents and discussing all of the options available, letting them know they are in control of their birthing journey. Making sure they know it’s OK to have a voice and to be their own advocate. This is a very special time and a memory you want to hold on to forever. With the right knowledge and plan you can make it a positive memory you want to cherish and happily share with others.
