Lucina provides doula support for labour and the first few weeks postpartum, thought-provoking prenatal classes and placenta services.

I support pregnant people in creating their own definition of the ideal birth experience. I also support them in creating their own definition of family. Everyone has the right to decide who will support them during childbirth, and who (if anyone) will parent with them. My practice therefore welcomes clients in any relationship structure.

A Birth Doula works with you and your family during pregnancy and childbirth. I meet with you during your pregnancy to answer questions and help you prepare a birth plan. I offer continuous support during your labour and birth, including comfort techniques and the provision of information to support you in informed decision making.

A Postpartum Doula works with you for the first few weeks after your baby is born. I help ensure that breastfeeding, where appropriate, is off to a good start, and help you and your family settle into your new life together.

I also offer community-based prenatal classes.

Many people choose childbirth education at their birthing hospital or with their midwifery practice. Others prefer to take classes that are not affiliated with the birth setting. This can allow you to access information tailored to your specific needs.
