Thank you for considering us to be part of your birth experience. We are located in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada and attend births either at the IWK Grace Maternity Hospital or at your home in HRM and surrounding areas.
A DOULA accompanies women in labour to help them have a more satisfying birth experience. She provides emotional support, physical comfort, and as needed communication with the staff to make sure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labour.
A doula can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labour progress, and help with relaxation, massage, and other techniques for comfort.
Andrea Stewart and Anette Goodwin have been practicing as doulas since 2007 and have a great passion for pregnancy, birth and babies. Working as a team approach, they strive to provide a positive birth experience for you and your partner by ensuring the support and care that you want and need before, during and after having your baby.

Our passion is to give a woman complete informational and emotional preparation during her pregnancy, to empower her for the birth of her child.
We want to give her and her partner our undivided support and comfort before, during and after their birth experience.
Our goal is to maintain the physical, emotional and psychological support to cope with the uncertainty and situations that may arise during labour and delivery.
There is no judgement on how she ultimately wants to give birth and take care of her baby.
We are proud members of the NSDA
