Birth Doula:  "A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to a mother before, during and shortly after childbirth to help her achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.

Countless scientific trials examining doula care demonstrate remarkably improved physical and psychological outcomes for both mother and baby. Doulas have a positive impact on the well-being of the entire family." Definition provided by DONA International

If your combined household income is under $42,000 and you live in the Halifax Regional Municipality, you might be eligible to have a Doula through the Volunteer Doula Program. Please contact Erin Fair at or visit the Volunteer Doula Program’s website to learn more details.
