Thank you for visiting Au Natural Doula and Placenta Encapsulation. I provide professional labour support and placenta encapsulation services in the Nanaimo region.
My desire is to help families achieve positive and memorable birth experiences by providing the information and support needed to make empowered, informed, decisions that fit each individual birthing women. I also aspire to provide tools to help you on your journey after the birth and into motherhood.

The origin of the word Doula is from the greek language and it means “female servant” or as I like to put it, “a woman who serves”. I think this is a great etymology as it describes a Doula’s role; to be in service to a mother, to comfort, support and guide her and her partner before, during, and after childbirth.
