“We remember our births and how nervous we were and how we didn’t have enough time to read EVERY book (and what were the “right” books?).”
Our clients told us that they thought there would be a lot of chaos in the hospital and found that having our doulas present helped them keep calm. We spend time helping birthing people feel more confident and comfortable birthing at home and especially at the hospital – we are currently the doula practice with the most births at Ridge Meadows Hospital! We will also ensure you have an amazing and smooth home birth if that is your plan. You will always have access to a fresh and capable doula since we work in teams of 3. This is especially important to us as we will make sure you always have a well rested doula supporting you and your birth if you find yourself experiencing a long labour. We remember our births and how nervous we were and how we didn’t have enough time to read EVERY book (and what were the “right” books?). We will lend you books and send you links without you having to spend extra time sifting through the endless amounts of information online!
Nicole Chambers is a daydreamer – she has lots of thoughts and lofty goals. Becoming a doula was her first goal. With a background in ECE and child development, Nicole taught parenting classes and worked with tiny humans for many, many years. When Nicole and her best friend got pregnant and birthed their babies on the very same day with very different birth stories (both complete with MISSING pieces of informed consent) she knew there was change to be made in the community she lived in and she had big dreams of helping to start that change.
After solo doula-ing for a few years Nicole found a regular back up (Allison) who also had a similar headstrong personality, and with that, a collective was born. As the collective continued to get busier each year, Nicole decided to add a second team to service clients outside of Maple Ridge: The Green Team.
This team became the most popular doula group in the Ridge Meadows Area.
