Birthing Families Matter provides programs that serve the birthing community with objectives to reduce health disparities for low income, marginalized, racialized, and oppressed populations and for those encountering disability, family violence, racial violence and/or addiction.
Birthing Families Virtual Doula Program offers doula support for pregnant and postpartum individuals and families who are in need of guidance at this time.
With sustained/rising COVID 19 numbers across Vancouver Island and BC, some families may be hesitant to book a doula to be present with them at the birth or in postpartum; however, the need for families to connect with support is even more needed at this time.
We are striving to offer families care in the form of Virtual doula support in order to fill the gaps created with COVID precautions.
Families can connect with doulas through our online portal for virtual support in the specific arenas of:
- Prenatal education
- Birth prep
- Prenatal postpartum planning
- Childbirth Education
- Birth story listening
- Postpartum education
- Infant care/feeding troubleshooting
- Affirming emotional support
- Connecting families to specific resources that meet their needs
Doulas in the Virtual program will be offering:
Free: 20 minute “Ask a Doula” sessions
$25: 1hr Prenatal Support sessions (birth prep or postpartum prep)
$25: 1hr Postpartum Doula Support sessions
$50: 2 hr Express Childbirth Ed
Please check back here to connect with our Doulas, thanks!
