Birth Doula Care

Even after taking prenatal classes, reading the birthing books and doing the hospital tour you may not feel fully prepared for birth. How can you be when you’ve never experienced it before? This is one of the many reasons to use a Birth Doula! We cover the Greater Toronto Area, including Aurora, Newmarket, the Kawarthas, Peterborough, Barrie and Durham Region.

Your Birth Doula is Like Your External Hard Drive, With Hands

Your doula can share and then remind you of all of the coping practices you’ve learned, can suggest ideas to your labour support partners that are most appropriate each stage of labour and remembers all of those little details about when to call your midwife/try the hip squeeze/ask for more time that you really, really wanted to remember.

Your birth doula allows you to fully bring your mind to your birthing experience, but more imporantly to connect with your inner knowing. You are calmer, more resourceful and feel confident in the way your birth is unfolding because you have someone you trust with you from the very beginning of your labour, to the very end.

    What Our Clients Are Saying

    Hearing from clients is part of what makes this work so rewarding. Below are some testimonials we’ve gotten from wonderful people working with The Nesting Place.

    “5 Stars!”

    Stellar experience with The Neting Place, specifically our wonderful doula Marcia Horbacio!

    Marcia was a key part of our ‘Team Baby’ when we welcomed our baby boy in March 2022. Being first-time parents, especially during the pandemic, we’re so grateful to Marcia for all her help and support. She was warm, knowledgable, supportive, non-judgmental and very responsive to the million questions we’ve had. Having Marcia there allowed us to feel comfortable and empowered during the delivery and those early days with our baby.

    Can’t recommend her highly enough, 5 stars!

    “Had a fantastic experience”

    My husband and I had a fantastic experience with our doula, Sarah McKee, who was wonderfully supportive. Both of us felt really well-informed through the two prenatal sessions we went through with her, so when the birth itself did not go as planned, we felt really comfortable discussing our options with her and supported with where things were going next. All in all, highly recommended!

    “Took excellenet care of our baby”

    We had a wonderful experience using this company for night doulas. Our night doulas were Marcia Horbacio and Kylie Davies. They took excellent care of our baby who was premature. We were very pleased with this service! We will always be grateful for this help during this time and highly recommend this service! Thank you!
