What is a Full Spectrum Doula?

Full Spectrum Birth and Bereavement Doulas are professionals; trained and experienced in the reproductive journey of fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. They provide individualized care that includes physical, emotional, spiritual and informational support to the birthing mother, father and/or other birth partners.

Fertility, Prenatal, Labor and Birth, Post-partum Doula Support

Your Giving Tree Doula will support you throughout each stage of the entire birthing process, whether you choose to deliver in a home or hospital setting.

We follow the Mindful Birth method, assisting with eliminating fear and anxiety surrounding birth. By providing detailed information about your options for labour and birthing to help you create your optimum birth preference road map, we encourage and foster confidence in the goal of a healthy mother, healthy baby birth experience.

We are dedicated to developing each client and Doula relationship through faith, practical assistance and emotional support. We offer extended prenatal classes, inner healing counselling, spiritual massage, Mindful Birth relaxation techniques and Somatic dance movemeant classes.

Your Doula will remain on call for your labour. When the appointed time arrives, we will work together to support the family and the mother to birth her way to a shorter, easier, healthier birthing experience.

We also offer labour and birthing Birth and Bereavement Doula Support services for various additional circumstances, such as teen pregnancy, fertility, adoptions, incarcerations, miscarriages, stillborns and terminations.
