May is deemed International Doula Month in the Birthing World, and as owner of Gentle Care Doula Services, I am proud to be this month’s featured business. Doula, what is a Doula? Doula is a Greek word meaning “servant of women” and for years women have been supporting other women in their childbearing years.
About Joan Newington:
For the past six years I have lived in the community of Meadowvale in Mississauga, born in Toronto, and raised in North York. My children are grown with families of their own, and I’m a very proud grandmother of two. I am a Certified Labour and Postpartum Doula as well as Child Birth Educator. As a childbirth educator, I have found my niche in life. Helping women understand what they are feeling, their anxieties regarding the birth of their child and helping them to achieve the ultimate birth is my reward.
About Gentle Care Doula Services:
Childbirth is the most rewarding life style change in a woman’s life as well as her partner’s. There is nothing you can do beyond that which would equal the birth of your first child. I share strategies to help both through the pre-birth stage and the transition into parenthood. I provide information that supports healthy pregnancies but I also respect the woman’s right to birth her way without judgment.
