Growing Together Doula Services
North Bay, Ontario, Canada & Surrounding Area
Welcome to Growing Together Doula Services! My name is Emily and I have a great passion for learning and working with children.
I have been looking after children since I was a teenager, been a nanny, a coach, an instructor and an outdoor educator. After having two children of my own and armed with personal experiences, my passion for learning and the desire for a career change, I've found the answer to where my heart lies...postpartum doula-ing!
I am currently certifying as a postpartum doula and childbirth educator with Doula Training Canada, and a fully certified breastfeeding support person and holistic support person. As well as, currently trained through the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit to aide mothers in their breastfeeding journey via the health unit's Breastfeeding Support Program.
My hope is to continuously expand my training and therefore the services I can bring to North Bay & Area. I am always open to hearing from you with any questions/concerns.
My personal philosophy is that everyone should be able to seek help and get help when they need it. I support all people regardless of age, race, gender or sexual orientation, marital status or disability.
I specialize in a more holistic approach and in breastfeeding support, however in my practice it is my main job to support YOU and YOUR decisions. Want to formula feed? Let's do it! Sleep training? No problem!
I can't wait to support you.
Mission: To provide emotional, physical, practical and evidence based informational support to ensure families of the North Bay and surrounding area feel supported and confident during their postpartum period. Vision: To grow the proverbial "village" community for those becoming pregnant, are pregnant and in postpartum. Core Values: Worth: Everyone deserves a doula. I make every effort to work with all family budgets because you deserve the support of a doula whether you have funds or no funds! Positive Space: I strive to provide a safe, respectful and approachable atmosphere where you can express yourself and be who you are without judgment. I also aim to be inclusive of all sexual orientations, gender identities, religions, races, and ages. Service & Quality: I continuously take training and do research so I can ensure accurate, effective and knowledgeable support.
