Birth Doula Services

We provide birth doula services for Ottawa, Gatineau and the surrounding areas. Our approach is to help each family experience their best birth. We provide individualized support that informs and empowers our clients during the child bearing year. We support ALL birth including hospital births, homebirths, birth centre births and VBACS.

Prenatal/Postnatal Nutrition

Nurtured Birth provides prenatal nutrition and postnatal nutrition services customized to specific needs of the individual. Each prenatal nutrition appointment includes dietary recommendations, supplement recommendations, lifestyle suggestions and recipe recommendations. Meal planning is also available upon request

Postpartum Doula Services

We provide postpartum doula services for Ottawa, Gatineau and the surrounding areas. Our support includes emotional, informational, and practical assistance. From doing the laundry and caring for the baby while parents rest to providing educational and emotional support, postpartum doulas make life easier!  

 Prenatal Yoga

Our customized prenatal yoga classes are designed to support individual needs. Prenatal yoga reduces common pregnancy discomforts, strengthens the body in preparation for birth, reduces anxiety, and fosters a connection between the pregnant person and growing baby. Prenatal yoga classes are available in person or virtually.

Prenatal Reflexology

Reflexology is a treatment that involves applying massage and pressure to the soles of the feet. Prenatal Reflexology reduces morning sickness, pelvic and low back pain, and fatigue. Reflexology is also used as a way to encourage the onset of labour when overdue.

Prenatal Reiki

Reiki is a beautiful healing art. The meaning of the word Reiki in Japanese comes from “rei” (meaning spiritual or supernatural) and “ki” (vital energy). It is a completely non-invasive modality, a gentle laying of hands that guides the universal energies to bring peace and balance.

Leaves Shadow
Julia is a mindful and intuitive provider that will go above and beyond to educate and empower you as her client. I originally went to her for prenatal nutrition advice. Wanting to conceive after age 30, I wanted to make sure I was as healthy as I could be. Her support was so genuine she made me feel like her best friend. So when it came time to give birth, I knew she would be the perfect fit as my doula as well. Julia guided me with her expertise and passion in a way that I didn't ever know I needed.
