Hospital Birth Preparation Without Doula Support

Are you planning a hospital birth and looking for some guidance to help you prepare?

Then this service might be the perfect fit for you!

So you’re unsure about doula support or are choosing not to hire a doula for whatever reason, but you would still love some help prenatally to prepare for your hospital birth.  I’m happy to help!  Having attended many births at all the various hospitals in Edmonton and surrounding area I am very familiar with all of the protocols and procedures and can give you the information you need to navigate your way through your hospital birth experience and know about all of the options available to you, helping you have an empowered and positive experience.


This service includes discussion and information on the following:
  • Exploring your vision of the birth
  • Get all your questions answered
  • What to expect at the hospital
  • Common hospital procedures and protocols and your options
  • Various interventions offered and the benefits, risks and alternatives to each of them
  • Pain medication options (Epidurals, IV narcotics, Nitrous Oxide)
  • Medical personnel – Who will be there and your options if someone is not working well with you
  • Your Labour & Delivery room – What is available to you and how to make it more like home
  • Help & feedback in formulating your written “Birth Preferences”
  • Birth Empowerment – Know your rights as a birthing mother
  • A practical list of what to pack for the big day
  • Newborn care procedures & options
  • Cesarean Birth options

You can expect this appointment to last about 2 hours (give or take) and it can happen in the comfort of your home (or other mutually agreeable location).  I am available weekdays, weeknights and weekends.  My objective is to provide you with all the information you need to help you feel more calm and confident about your hospital birth!
