I am a Labour & Birth Doula with over 8 years experience serving the Lloydminster area. I only attend hospital births.
My name is Rhiannon and I am a Labour & Birth Doula. I am also a mom to 4 amazing boys, married to my best friend and from Lloydminster AB/SK. I am a proud hockey mom, love to sing and work during the day at StartUp Lloydminster.
After having my 4th baby I experienced severe Post Partum Depression. I couldn’t understand why this was happening with my fourth but not the first three? What was different? Through all this I started to learn more about how much your pregnancy, labour and birth can absolutely affect you afterward. We had medical scares with my fourth that were different than the others and I am sure that's what lead to my PPD. That was just in my case, but many times a traumatic event during labour or birth can come up as PTSD afterward. Reading and learning about how a Doula could possibly help with PPD proactively intrigued me and on a whim I took a Doula course and the rest is history.
Throughout Covid, I have had pivot how I can support expecting parents and continue my Doula work. The policies for a second support person being allowed in the hospital has changed as restrictions have gone up and down. I do feel that the support of a Doula is essential but I completely respect whatever policies are in place, when they need to be.
I have already been altering my services but I decided I should make it official and advertise. The support and preparation before birth that I already provide to my clients can be just as important as the physical support given during labour and birth. This along with virtual support during the birth make for a pretty good Doula support package that I am excited to continue to offer!
