Supporting Families through Pregnancy and Delivery
Welcome to Leanne Bryce Birth Doula Services
Every birth is special. Whether it takes place at the hospital or at home, each is beautiful and deserving of celebration. No matter how you birth your baby, everyone can benefit from having an experienced Doula present. Contact me to learn more about my services, and how I can help you bring your own child into this world beautifully.
I have been married to my amazing husband and best-friend since 2007. We have 2 beautiful daughters and 1 son who completes our family tree. My passion for Doula work came quickly after my first child was born. The continuous emotional and physical support I received is something I love to provide for my clients and believe is very important. I hit the ground running in birth work and am trained and certified through DONA International. I will be pursing postpartum work in the near future.
I enjoy camping with family and friends, softball, shopping at local shops, reading, puzzles and crocheting.
How can a Doula help me?
As your Doula I will help you determine your goals for your birth. I will help you navigate any fears you might have. I can help clarify information you receive from the Doctors, nurses or Midwives. Once labour starts I will be by your side from start to finish and beyond.
If I have a Midwife, why do I need a Doula?
Doula's are trained for emotional support and to provide comfort measures for you and your partner during labour. Midwives are medically trained and their priority is to maintain the well being of you and your baby during labour and especially during delivery. Midwives absolutely provide labour support - they do - they just have more responsibilities that must take priority. Having a Doula is a great asset to your birth team to consistently be by your side. Midwives and Doula's work wonderful together!
What if I want an Epidural?
Many clients who want an epidural in their birth plan still hire a Doula. I will direct you to information regarding the benefits, risks and side effects of an epidural. Being informed is important. I will come to your home to support you during early labour if needed and will guide you along to the hospital. It's also good to keep in mind that sometimes labours progress too quickly to receive an epidural, or the anesthesiologist may be unavailable. In this situation as your Doula I will help you with the intensity of labour if your epidural is delayed or unavailable.
It's a big investment
It’s true, my support is an investment. If you consider the peace of mind and support during the time of unknowns and uncertainty, my physical/emotional and psychological support will make it worth the investment. I would encourage you to read my reviews to understand the value of my services.
Some insurance providers cover some or all of the costs of Doula support.
I’m happy to answer any additional questions.
