Welcome to

The Nesting Place!

You’re pregnant or your partner is pregnant. You want to have a healthy labour AND you want to feel good about your experience. You want to make the right decisions for YOU but you don’t know what questions to ask. You want to trust your gut yet be well informed about what to expect from something you’ve never done before…wouldn’t it be nice if labour came with a guide? Oh wait…it does! A doula!

What each parent needs to feel confident about their birth experience is different so we personalize our Birthing From Within prenatal classes, birth doula care,postpartum doula care and infant massage to help you discover what feels right for YOU and your family.

Doulas at The Nesting Place

A note from our Doula owner!

As a Doula and Educator for over 15 years, mother of three and passionate advocate for people’s rights, I’m so honoured to be entrusted with helping you through the experience of pregnancy, birth, and parenthood.

I began my own journey as a parent over 20 years ago. Being a parent has taught me so much about pregnancy and birth, but mostly it has taught me about life, about what it takes to be an informed decision-maker in our healthcare, and how it really does “take a village” to raise children.


We’re grateful to be part of your “village” whether it’s through our prenatal or baby classes to help you prepare, or our birth or postpartum doula services to help you during/after birth. Our amazing team of educators and doulas is sure to surpass your expectations with their warm and kind spirits, their non-judgmental support of your choices, and their ultimate dedication to their clients’ needs.

We look forward to supporting you!

Stefanie Antunes
