As far back as history is recounted, women attended women in childbirth. They provided a ministry of education to young women about their bodies, having children and healthy pregnancies. Childbearing women relied on their close-knit community of women to assist them in labour, birth and early care of their children. Today we call this childbirth professional a doula.
- labour coaches
- support partners for moms and their partners
- great listeners
- the partner's back pocket step-by-step guide book
- believe in the process of birth and the impact it has on parenting
- trust a women's instincts
- acknowledge the power of birth
- recognize birth is a non-medical event unless a woman asks for assistance for her or her baby
- understand that the fewer people interrupting the birth process, the quicker the birth
- do not impose our own thoughts and beliefs
- know that the birthing woman's partner is the most important team member, if that is right for the couple

THE WOMB provides in-home care and support unique to the needs of your family after the birth of your baby or babies. Day and overnight care is available.
Your doula support may start before your baby(ies) are born or any time after.
Our goal is to increase your parenting confidence and provide you with the tools and skills to be on your own.
"There are no perfect parents, just perfect parenting intentions".
The first step is setting up a free no-obligation ‘meet and greet’ to answer your questions about doula support and ensure a great fit for your family. Meetings can be arranged for in your home or at THE WOMB.
The WOMB rents Aquaborn Professional Birth Pools!
The WOMB chooses Aquaborn Birth Pools because:
A Little Deeper!
The Aquaborn Eco Birth Pool is a little deeper than your average pool so that your waist can stay in the water even when you want to lean over the pool.

The vertical anti-deflate beams
The unique beams deflate very slowly and equally, in the unlikely event of a puncture.
The top ring is inflated and deflated in seconds to allow easier access to the pool if required.
