Choosing a Doula is an extremely personal decision. It is important that you find someone who fits well with your personality and that you feel comfortable with. Our Doulas work one-on-one with your family to walk you through the entire process of bringing a new child into the world. This can include Prenatal Planning, Labour Support, and Postpartum Home Care, to name a few. At Family First Doula Service, we create a Personalized Birth Support Team that meets your individual needs to ensure that you enjoy a gentle transition into new parenthood.
Having the support of a Doula during this special time not only has a positive impact on your overall birth experience but, is also an effective way to prioritize the health of your entire family by reducing your risk factors for potential interventions, caesarean section and other birth complications including Postpartum Depression (PPD). PPD affects one in five new mothers across Canada and is actually the most common birth complication to date.
We believe it is important to provide access to a well-rounded network of care providers to ensure women are receiving comprehensive support – both physically and emotionally – throughout their pregnancy. This is why we work with other healthcare providers in Regina that have a vested interest in maternity care and overall maternal health. These partnerships are part of building a strong, healthy community in Regina. You can find a complete list of alternative care providers under our Planning Resources page.
The birth of a new baby is the most life-changing and profound experience a woman will ever go through. We strongly believe that when we fully support, educate and encourage new mothers to find their voice and become more confident in their decisions, we ultimately help them become more secure in their own innate ability to birth. Women have been helping women birth for hundreds of years and this kind of encouragement is a key player in a woman feeling safe and emotionally safeguarded so that her body can let go and birth her baby. Since each family is unique, we offer many different services to ensure they get the support they need the most. Our team of Doulas are here to encourage you to make the choices that work best for your family. At the end of the day that is all that matters: healthy mother, healthy baby and a healthy family!
