About Susan The Doula
A Little Bit About Me...
I am excited for you and your new little one, ready and equipped to lend a helping hand. I am located in London, Ontario, offering personalized newborn care, lactation assistance, sleep health, and practical household and meal assistance to families of all shapes and sizes. My objective is to give you and your family the attention and knowledge you need to navigate the first days, weeks, and months of your baby’s life. This is fulfilled when you feel grounded, nurtured, understood, and confident.
For the past 23 years I have worked as a dental hygienist, delivering services in a healthcare space that requires attention to a client’s general health and mental wellbeing. This client-centred attention and professionalism I also bring to my doula role to offer you personalized high quality care.
I have two children of my own, now in their 20’s. Birthing them was easy. However, the postpartum period was challenging. I felt the pure love and excitement that comes with a new bundle of joy. I also experienced the insecurity, exhaustion, and depression that commonly accompanies this new phase of life.
Holding babies, cooking, being crafty, making checklists, Ayurvedic study, meditation, and yoga – these are the things that bring joy to my life, guiding my service as a Doula. According to the wisdom of Ayurveda, this is the time in your life when you need warm grounding food, and a calm mind.
I look forward to meeting you and your little one.
