Pregnant? You deserve a doula!
Discover Birth in collaboration with The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) is now offering a doula program to serve the expectant families of our community.
Please visit our new website for our program at www.BirthDoulaProgram.com
Why use a doula? Doulas can:
We want every woman to have access to a birth doula*.
The term “doula” comes from the Greek word for ‘a woman who serves’. It has come to mean a woman who provides non-medical support in labour.
In labour women need medical support from an experienced care provider and emotional support from a friend or family member, but they also need:
Reassurance, physical comfort, and encouragement from an experienced professional like a doula, who has no other medical duties to take-up her time.
A doula is there just for you and your support people. With no shift changes, she will be with you from start to finish!
All women’s choices and rights are respected and supported.
*Fees are on a sliding scale based upon your ability to pay, starting at $75.

We always need new doulas on our program. We have specific needs for people with great availability and who speak languages other than English.
