~Birth was and will always be the most commonplace of miracles, an event at once familiar and phenomenal, timeless and immediate...~ Call the Midwife
My name is Elizabeth Stauffer and I live in Three Hills, AB, with my husband and our three children.
When I was pregnant with my first child, pregnancy was a complete unknown to me and I was scared of giving birth. Our friend was our doula and she provided great resources and information during our pregnancy. She helped my husband and I have a great labour and birth experience and since then I have always been drawn to birth stories. After hearing a number of negative birth experiences, I wondered how or if these negative experiences could have been prevented through additional education and support.
As your doula, my aim is to help you feel prepared, confident, and supported throughout your pregnancy and birth by providing compassionate care, evidence-based information, and a calm and steady presence.
I look forward to connecting with you,
Liz attended the birth of our second child. She was calm, helpful and encouraging throughout the labour and delivery. She was also available to talk before and after the event which we appreciated.
I got pregnant and gave birth during 2020 and the covid-19 pandemic. This made having a doula look a little bit different and Liz was amazing. We had multiple meetings using face time and phone conversations to check-in post birth.
She catered her services to what my husband and I were looking for specifically, which for us included how to work better together as a team during labour and providing support for my mental health during pregnancy and postpartum.
