The following doulas are active doulas in the Westman area. Each doula works independently from www.brandondoulas.ca, and must be contacted directly for availability. A brief bio accompanies their picture for your convenience. brandondoulas.ca does not promote any doula over any other, and will not contact them for you. We encourage you to contact as many doulas as you want to find the right fit for you and your birth!
A birth doula accompanies pregnant persons and their partners during pregnancy, birth, and immediately postpartum as continuous knowledgeable physical and emotional support. A doula complements the role of the partner and supplements the role of the care providers. A doula is an important part of your birth team, and wants you to have an empowered, informed birth experience.

BIRTH DOULA & BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER
My name is Amber Vickerman and I am a mom to 3 little kiddos (5,3,1). I recently finished my Doula course in Jan, 2022. Even though I am starting my doula journey, birth has been my interest for many years. I attended my first birth in 2012 and I was in complete amazement of how powerful birth is. Then I found birth photography and my world changed.
Have you heard the word Doulatog???? A Doulatog is a doula and birth photographer
I am so excited to be bringing both these services to Brandon MB. I am currently the only Doulatog in this area!
I offer free no obligation consultations....we can have a coffee and chat!! If you have any questions, please reach out to me.
