My name is Amanda and I am a certifying Labour and Birth Doula with Doula Canada. I am the owner and Doula for Amanda Delargy Doula Services. My passion is birth and supporting families, I support hospital births, cesarean births, home births, VBACs, HBACs, epidurals, natural births, and multiples. I support all types of families, in Renfrew County, Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley.
I am a proud mother and wife; my husband and I have three amazing children a daughter and identical twin boys. I am extremely outgoing, a people person and love to make people smile.
Before having my children, I worked as an Educational Assistant in the school board. I loved my job but always felt deep in my heart I was meant to follow another path.
After having my children, I had a deep desire and burning passion to support other families and help them conquer their birth experience, whatever that experience may be. So here I am, a proud momma bear following her dreams excited to be a supportive member of your team throughout YOUR birth YOUR way!
I am also a member of Ottawa Valley Doulas Association (OVD), and subscribe to their code of ethics, and standards of practice. Being a member of OVD also means that I hold a badge which allows me to count as a member of your care team at most Ottawa area hospitals. This means that I will always be permitted to accompany you to your birth and will not be counted as a visitor and subjected to protocols in place for family and visitors.
“Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear”
