Certified Birth Doula CD (CAPPA)
Hi, my name is Doula Nadia Verdugo. I am a CAPPA trained certified birth doula, mom to 3 awesome girls and wife to my amazing, supportive husband. I am also a member of both CAPPA and Association of Ontario Doulas. After having 3 high risk pregnancies of my own and being present for the birth of my niece, I wanted to support other women as they begin on their journey of pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood. I decided to become a doula because I felt that birth should not be feared but rather an empowering and exciting experience. I believe in helping women increase their confidence in their ability to give birth. I feel honored to be with mothers and their partners during such an amazing and “awe”-some time in their lives.

With a doula present……
As a doula I am not:
– Here to tell you that you cannot do something, or push an idea of how your birth should look.
– Able to make decisions on your behalf. I teach/coach you how to advocate for yourself.
– Looking to replace or exclude your birth partner.
– Going to shift change.
– The same as a midwife. I offer non-medical, emotional, physical and educational support.
