Who We Are.

The Comox Valley Doulas are a group of women from diverse backgrounds who offer professional, experienced labour support to childbearing women and their supporters before, during and immediately after the birth of their baby.

OUR VISION:

We believe that every woman has the right to a gentle, informed, safe and supported birth. We are dedicated to enhancing women’s birth experiences in the present so that future generations will also benefit.

OUR AIM:

– To provide physical and emotional support for the childbearing woman and her partner during and immediately after the birth of the baby;
– To make care affordable, regardless of ability to pay;
– To encourage choice based on knowledge of evidence-based and balanced alternatives;
– To support the woman in her birth choices;
– To provide a continuous, professional standard of care;
– To assist childbearing women in linking with community resources;
– To help protect a mother’s birth memory.

IMPORTANT NOTE

In hiring a doula it is the consumers responsibility to check the doulas experience and/or certification. Not all doulas are trained or certified but they may still be very experienced and offer valuable support. Ask questions! The Comox Valley Doulas are a collective; this website was developed to provide informative, easy, “one-stop” access to multiple doulas; however, each doula listed on this site is a sole proprietor.
