There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They do not ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through carrying the child with it. Sheryl Feldman
I am passionate about providing support and information that empowers women in their birthing journey. As doula I provide physical, emotional and educational support to the woman and her partner prior, during and after the birth of their baby. I help and advise on comfort measures, offer assistance in gathering information and making choices. I include prenatal yoga exercises to help with the discomfort and to enhance the relaxation. A complementary Prenatal Yoga Partner Workshop is included in the package. I am also a Reiki practitioner and offer energy healings if requested.

My wife and I were months away from the birth of our first child, and were open to the idea of hiring a doula. Upon interviewing Kasia, we right away felt a positive connection with her that didn't quite exist with other candidates. We felt confident she had the right knowledge and passion for the role. She also gave off a strong 'big sister' feeling such that we felt very comfortable around her, and could count on her to speak up / advise us on matters while still respecting our views and wishes. (...) With the aid of her relaxation techniques and constant encouragement, our baby was smoothly and safely delivered.
We are super thankful to have had Kasia as a doula, and would highly recommend her to any other parents-to-be. She is very professional, knowledgeable, committed to the job, quick in her replies to emails/text messages, and has a very calming presence that makes her someone you want by your side during the important moments! :) Simon Lam
