Beth Murch

Providing Waterloo Region With Experienced, Nurturing, Good-Humoured Doula Care

" Beth was an amazing support for me throughout my pregnancy and during the birth of our baby boy. Beth was there for me to provide emotional support, information, and accompaniment to appointments if I desired both by telephone and in person. I found Beth to be very accessible, kind, and informative. During the birth of my son, Beth was invaluable to me and I'm so grateful that I had her by my side as I felt safe and cared for knowing she was there. I would recommend Beth to anyone for her skill, knowledge, experience and caring support. She was truly wonderful."

Pregnancy, Birth And Postpartum Services

"All over the world exists in every society a small group of women who feel themselves strongly attracted to giving care to other women during pregnancy and childbirth. Failure to make use of this group of highly motivated people is regrettable and a sin against the principle of subsidiary."
- Dr. Kloosterman, Chief of OB/GYN, University of Amsterdam, Holland

I strive to provide my clients with continuity of care - that means that unlike doula practices where you may be working with more than one doula throughout your pregnancy and birth experiences, I will be with you every step of the way through your labour, birth, those first special hours with your new baby, and for those first few weeks as you adjust to life as a parent of a new baby. Please let me nurture and care for you as you journey through this very special time in your life - you will not regret it!
