Some of our Favourite Vancouver Doulas and Birth Professionals
We are proud to share with you some of our favorite Vancouver doulas for birth and postpartum care. Our clients rave about their work. Each doula has her own practice with unique background, training, and style, and we encourage you find the best match for you. Be sure to check out the blog posts at right written by our featured doulas.
These Vancouver area birth and postpartum doulas bring the knowledge, heart, and hands of birth professionals and experienced mothers who have seen pregnancy and birth unfold in countless ways, at the hospital and at home, through natural childbirth or cesarean birth, over several long days and nights or a few intense hours.
Rheja Gilchrist, Vancouver, Burnaby and Tri-Cities Birth and Postpartum Doula
We love Rheja for her laughter and energy (she’s an energy healer, maybe that’s why she’s got so much!) She supports all her birth and postpartum clients with empathy and curiosity, knowing each client is unique. Talk to her about her work as a birth and postpartum doula, or as a breastfeeding counselor, and you can really hear the joy and passion that has made this her career of more than 20 years. Contact Rheja at Rhejadoula.com.
Lolli Comar, Vancouver Birth and Postpartum Doula
Lolli is a cornerstone in our community – a rock for friends, colleagues, and clients. She brings strength and reflection to all our conversations and that same considered wisdom is woven through every aspect of her doula practice. She’s one of the doula pioneers in Vancouver – her steady, committed presence modelling family-centered birth practices in hospitals and in homes since 1992. If you’re looking for mindful, unflappable compassion wherever birth takes you, Lolli’s got your back. >> Visit Lolli’s Website
Marta Becker, Vancouver Birth Doula
Marta’s got the best questions! We rely on her to ask us about those details that make us stop and consider what we really mean. She’s wonderful at helping those around her achieve clarity. She believes in the transcendent nature of birth, and it’s clear in her excitement for each family. Marta sees labour as an initiation that helps birth not only the baby but also the family. Contact Marta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Michelle Maclean, Vancouver Birth Doula
