We recognize that one of the reasons that people hire a doula for their birth is for continuity of care. In other words – you’re banking on a familiar face being by your side the day your baby is born.
We would love to be able to guarantee that we will be at your birth, and while we make every effort to ensure that we are, it would be irresponsible of us not to make arrangements for the possibility that we may not be.
Sometimes there are events entirely beyond our control (an illness, an injury, two babies at once) that mean we can’t be your person on your day, as planned. That is why we have carefully chosen some of the best doulas in Calgary to step in for us if we can’t be there on your day.
Still, you may be wondering what it’s actually like to have a back up doula attend your birth.
Here is what some of the clients within our collective had to share about their experience with a back up doula.
