OKANAGAN DOULA

is the premier doula practice in the Okanagan that provides professional birth and postpartum doula services,  comprehensive childbirth education classes, perinatal clinical counselling and infant feeding support services in the South Okanagan.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

"OUR GOAL IS NOT TO ADVOCATE FOR A CERTAIN KIND OF BIRTH, BIRTH LOCATION OR PROVIDER, BUT TO SUPPORT WOMEN, FAMILIES, AND THEIR DECISIONS, INCLUDING HOW, WHERE, AND WITH WHOM THEY GIVE BIRTH. IT'S ABOUT ENSURING THAT ALL PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO THE BEST BIRTH FOR THEM. THIS INCLUDES OPTIONS, INFORMATION, AND MOST OF ALL - RESPECT."

- DAWN THOMPSON, IMPROVING BIRTH PRESIDENT

 


This is what we truly aspire to accomplish with each woman and family who walk through our doors. What is important for one, may not matter in the slightest to the other. There is no right or wrong way to birth - and we will provide families with whatever it is that they need to have a happy and satisfying birth experience.

LOVE NOTES

Baby Grady
 

Do it! I finally got a doula for my 3rd baby's delivery after always considering it. (Why now if I have already done this before? BEST decision ever! Lindley you are amazing! Both me and my hubby agree it was amazing to have you there with us! Thank you for everything, seriously you made it so much easier! Hands down would do it again! Don't have a baby without these doulas beside you!

Baby Lochlann

'It is very difficult to even begin to put into words how valuable and amazing our experience with Okanagan Doulas was. They were all very kind and knowledgeable, and we felt very comfortable with them! I don't think I could have made it through the hours of contractions without them. They even supported my husband almost as much as me through the long sometimes stressful hours... 

I would recommend their services to everyone (and have to a few so far) and just can't say enough good things about them!'

Inara Buckley

I recommend Okanagan Doulas to anyone considering having a doula at their birth. My first birth experience would not have been as pleasant or gone as smoothly without them. They are amazing! Not to mention without them I likely would have had more medical/surgical interventions. I can not give enough praise to this wonderful team who supported my husband and I every step of the way through the birth of our beautiful baby girl!!
