Brittany L.

Owner & Lead Doula

I'm Brittany Lynch, owner & lead doula at The Doula Tree! I founded this agency in 2016 following the birth of my daughter, Charlie, which left me feeling overwhelmed & underprepared. It was here that a realized the transformative impact birth could leave on a woman (good & bad)!

 

I believe 3 significant factors will impact your birth experience including; good prenatal education, partner preparation & the confidence to birth your baby in your way. So, I make it my mission to tick all 3 of those boxes for you during our time together. I think what makes me unique, is my ability to support births in all different settings, with all different providers and all different plans. But what always stays true, is that I really do care about your birth outcome and how you feel during your experience. What I know for sure, is that birth unfolds the best when we leave it be - which is why I believe strongly in a mother-led, physiological birth whenever possible.

So, if you're looking for someone to guide you into motherhood, truly believe in your birth plan & care for you in the postpartum; I might be your girl. 

Special Skills: Brittany is a childbirth educator and facilitates all of our virtual and in-person prenatal classes. When it comes to babies, she is a baby wearing guru & cloth diaper expert!

Brittany W.

Holistic Birth & Postpartum Doula

Hi, I'm Brittany and I am a holistic pregnancy & birth coach, home birth doula and maternal caregiver.

My journey into birth work began after the birth of my first daughter in 2013. After a complicated hospital delivery & knowing I wanted more children, I began searching for better, more natural options.

I specialize in natural birth & take a holistic spin on classic postpartum care. My goal is to help women empower themselves by owning their births and supporting them through the most beautifully challenging chapters of their lives.

Special Skills: Brittany makes her own remedies including magnesium spray, bath soaks, tallow face cream and diaper cream. They are available for purchase separately from doula services here!

Alice

Birth & Postpartum Doula

Hi, I'm Alice and I'm a mom of three, dog obsessed, music loving, labour & postpartum doula.

 

My husband and I moved from Wales, U.K in 2013 and have built a beautiful life here in Oxford County. My love of the birthing world came while creating my own family, as it showed me just how valuable it is to be prepared for birth and have good support around you. Whether you birth in a hospital with an OB or at home with midwives, I want women to take back control of their pregnancies and birth experiences.

 

When it comes to your postpartum needs - I'm the doula for you! I want to normalize wanting more help, and I've made it my personal mission to remind mothers that their needs matter too! I love making nourishing foods for new moms & their families.

 

When I'm not snuggling all the babies, you'll find me walking the trails with my four legged friends, in my kitchen baking, cooking and singing, learning how to care for my disabled son, volunteering with the Canadian Blood Services, playing my ukulele and spending time with my favourite people.

 

Special Skills: Alice cooks & delivers pre-made food for mothers & families. This service can be purchased separately from postpartum care.

Madison

Holistic Birth & Postpartum Doula 

I have always been so fascinated with birth. The concept of pregnancy and birth in my eyes, is the most incredible gift in the world.

 

Prior to my doula certification, I studied Osteopathy; a holistic manual therapy. There, I was able to learn more than I could have imagined about Anatomy and Physiology, and how the body works as a collective unit. Understanding the human body from a holistic perspective allows me to work with clients in a different capacity that I believe is so important to birth & postpartum.

 

Aside from all things birth and holistic health, I also love all sorts of physical activity and sports. I love to keep myself busy and as healthy as I can.

Thanks for reading, I can't wait to get to you know you!

Special Skills: Madison offers maternity, birth and newborn photography which can be added to birth packages or purchased separately here.

Christina

Birth & Postpartum Doula 

Hi there! My name is Christina King and I am a birth & postpartum doula based out of the quaint town of Ingersoll where I live with my Husband, Doug, our White German Shepherd, Minerva, and our Tabby, Tigger.

 

My passion for birth was reignited when I was asked to be the support person at the last minute for a friend. It was a healing and empowered VBAC, and I was called to help women understand what their bodies are capable of.

 

From hospital births with OB’s to home births with traditional birth attendants and everything in between, I aim to make all women confident in their bodies and their ability to birth. Being in this field has taught me how truly amazing women’s bodies are.

 

Outside of being a doula I find joy in trying all kinds of creative endeavors from obtaining an advanced certificate in Interior Design, to bracelet making, and organizing anything I can get my hands on (thank you ADHD! Haha). I also love being out and one with nature.

Special Skills: Christina offers evening support for babies of all ages. Hello date night!

Nicolle

Doula/Traditional Birth Attendant

I'm Nicolle; birth nerd and lover of birth!

Birth work is something that was never on my radar until the pregnancy and birth of my son in 2014. I had the homebirth I dreamed of and just knew I had to get that feeling out and share it with the world! I became the doula for all my family and friends until I started doing it full time in 2020. I currently specialize in supporting homebirths & overnight postpartum support.

Navigating the unknown territories of pregnancy is already a challenge. Having an experienced, wise woman by your side to help keep you grounded and aware throughout the process can make a difference. You will be prepared for the journey with me on your team.

I will be your biggest supporter in reminding you that you are your authority and no one knows better than you.

Special Skills: Nicholle offers both overnight support & placenta encapsulation!

Beth

Birth & Postpartum Doula 

I knew I wanted to be part of the birth world from a young age. When I learned about what it meant to be a doula, to connect and educate with a mother prenatally, promote mother-led birthing, advocate for her during labor, encourage her through the toughest moments, and walk through the highs and lows postpartum, I knew it was meant for me. I'm a wife and aunty, lover of my family, exercise and nutrition guru, sucker for one-on-one connection and believer in Jesus. I believe in your birth plan, I care deeply about the outcome of your birth experience, and will be with you every step of the way. I want to guide you through the postpartum healing process and give you confidence as you enter motherhood. I can't wait to get to know you and find out if I am the right doula for you!
