Meet Our Doula Team

Your doula will be with you on one of the most personal and vulnerable days of you life. It’s important that you feel comfortable with who they are and that they fit well into your family dynamic. If there is a specific person from our doula team that you feel drawn to, let us know! Or if you’d like to interview a few, we’d be happy to connect you with multiple doulas to help you find your perfect doula match.

Meet Stefanie

Stefanie Antunes had her first baby in 1998. The experience was NOT AT ALL what she had hoped for. Years later before the birth of her second baby, she made sure to attend childbirth education classes and become an informed decision-maker.

This time, with the knowledge she needed and techniques she learned in class, she had a fabulous experience. Right away she knew she wanted to help other families to prepare for this important day. Stefanie became a Lamaze® Certified Childbirth Educator, and later a certified doula through DONA. She is the former Public Relations Director for DONA International and sits on the board of the Association of Ontario Doulas.

Stefanie believes that the world can be a better place if parents can have more positive childbirth experiences, allowing them to bond properly with their babies. She works tirelessly to change the world in this aspect…one family at a time.

Stefanie was awarded ‘Business Woman of the Year for 2022’ by CanadianSME Business Magazine recognizing her contributions to the families of Canada in improving perinatal health outcomes through Discover Birth’s childbirth education, birth and postpartum doula offerings.
