Doula Courtney Giesbrecht

I am the owner of A Positive Experience Doula Services and Sensitive Sleep Consulting– a certified labour/birth and postpartum doula with Doula Training Canada, a certified sleep consultant. My passion is to help women have a positive and informed birth and postpartum experience. Birth should not be full of discomfort, confusion, stress, and dialation deadlines, but a positive experience! Everyone needs extra help during these times. I hope to support entire families by bringing knowledge, experience, and compassion into the labour room and nursery.

Before becoming a doula, I got my Associate of Science degree in physical geography. Afterward, I took time off school to get married. Not long after, my husband and I discovered we were expecting! Through pregnancy, labour, birth, and the postpartum period I decided to become a doula.

Looking back at the time when my firstborn was an infant who woke up every 30 minutes at night, I remember the frustration of not knowing how to improve the situation. Thus, I decided to train at the Institute of Sensitive Sleep to become a sleep consultant, so that I could expand my toolbox and better help parents understand and deal with their little ones' sleep challenges! My hope is for people to have a positive experience with their sleep and to no longer dread bedtime.

Doula Joann Christensen

I am certified as a birth and postpartum Doula. I proudly provide support from Bump to Birth & Beyond to expectant and new parents. As a mother of 3, I have roughly 20 years of prenatal and infant care, and baby gear retail management experience.

Having a birth and postpartum doula can be tremendously invaluable for those wanting one-on-one support. Each pregnancy and birth is unique and no matter what your journey is like, my goal is to prepare, empower, and educate you during this momentous time in your life. The days and weeks after you give birth can be tough as your body is healing and your baby is adjusting. Allow me to be there for you in whatever capacity you need so that you can focus on bonding with your new baby.

Helping new moms with their new bundles of joy is my passion! I have over 20 years of experience working with children from newborns to 15-year-olds and those with special needs. I am a certified postpartum doula, have my community support worker diploma, have up-to-date first aid and CPR for children, have experience working in Early Childhood Education, and have been trained by child development workers.

If you are a mom who could use a little support, I am here for you. Whether that be for you catching up on some much needed, and deserved, sleep, having a nice hot bubble bath, having a meal while it’s still hot, without interruptions, getting support in the form of some housekeeping, are interested in baby education, or if you just need a listening ear, I'm only a phone call away. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything.

"I met Courtney during my pregnancy at a moms group tea. The topic of Doulas came up among everyone and I expressed interest in having one help me with my planned home birth. Courtney offered her services and was very conscientious of my husband's feelings; he wanted the largest role in supporting and helping me through labour, and he felt confident that he would still have that opportunity even with someone else there to help coach.

Courtney scheduled two home visits with us prior to our due date and brought material for us to go over and introduced us to the many ways she would be able to help facilitate pain management. Near our date, she was in contact with me almost daily asking if I had questions or concerns, and was genuinely interested in how I was feeling(a huge thing in my books).

Our due date passed and we ended up going for a C-section at surrey memorial due to complications. Courtney was unable to be with us due to the c-section but she verbally gave her support and was happy to help postpartum with breastfeeding, etc. Almost a month later she is still in touch with me.

I feel that I gained a friend from this experience and I would definitely recommend Courtney's services. I will be hiring her for our next pregnancy."
