The Doula Collective of Newfoundland and Labrador is a group of women dedicated to supporting parents before, during and after labour. As doulas, we recognize childbirth as an experience that parents will remember for the rest of their lives and are honoured to be a part of this special event.
The DCNL maintains a code of ethics and unified Standards of Practice to which all member doulas must adhere. These documents outline our commitments to you and your family: safety, legality, and quality care. You can read all the details by clicking the downloads below.
Birth doulas provide non-medical continuous support to parents
during pregnancy, labour, and the immediate postpartum period. We can help with preparation, comfort measures, feeding, bonding, and more!
Postpartum doulas support the new parent(s)
during that precious "settling in" period
after baby arrives. (Usually 6 weeks or so, but contracts may vary.) We can help with infant care, housekeeping, feeding, bonding, and more!
"Our birthing experience was absolutely amazing! We were able to stick to our birth plan and have the natural birth we wanted. My husband and I were so pleased with our doula experience that we have told everyone we know about the amazing collective in Newfoundland. Our doula was so supportive before, during and after our birth experience, we will certainly sing her praises for years to come, and hope she is available for any of our future births. The arrival of our first born could not have gone more smoothly and we both thank our doula for everything she did for us, she is a wonderful addition to the NL collective. Thank you again and again!"
