*COVID-19 UPDATE* Oct./20

I am still here for all of my current and future clients and have adjusted my services accordingly, providing remote prenatal & postpartum visits (if preferred) or in-person visits with appropriate PPE.


At this time, all Edmonton and area hospitals are allowing a doula, along with the birth partner, to be with the birth giver in hospital.


If this changes and restrictions are in place at the time you give birth, limiting support people, I would provide virtual doula support instead.

"The birth of a child is miraculous, and you will remember your birth experience for the rest of your life.  It should be amazing, joyous, and transformative.  I am committed to helping you make that memory a positive one as I walk beside you on your birth journey."

Comforting Hands Doula Services is an inclusive practice that welcomes all families and all ways of birthing, providing you with customized care and heart centered support every step of the way

When we first met Ricky we knew right away she is the perfect fit for us and I knew she was exactly what I was looking for in a doula. Her calm, confident demeanor had me right at ease with all the fear I had about childbirth.
During the birth Ricky kept me calm and focused, which allowed me to successfully follow through with my natural birth plan
Ricky is sweet, kind and very knowledgeable. Ricky is amazing at what she does! Highly recommend her and will definitely be using her again as our doula if we have more children.
Thank you Ricky from the bottom of my heart. Your the best!
