When doula services first come up, an automatic thought that a lot of people have is the cost, which is understandable.
In Canada, we just aren't used to spending money on our births. We pay our monthly MSP premiums and that is it. Maybe a few hundred more for a private hospital room or for the birth supplies at a home birth. That is what is our normal. Ask our cousins to the south, where the average birth costs at least $10,000, and they would definitely say we have it good here.
But when the average cost of a Canadian wedding is $30,000 - does it make sense to not invest money for probably the MOST important day of our life - the birth of our children? We spend on talented wedding planners to make sure everything goes smoothly, on wedding photographers to capture those special moments, on bakers and chefs to feed our guests and DJs to dance the night away to in order to celebrate the start of marriage. Shouldn't we also invest in experienced birth support doulas who can help us achieve a positive birth experience, on prenatal classes to help us be informed on our choices and birth photographers to capture those unforgettable moments in order to celebrate the start of your new family?
Your wedding day was beautiful and unforgettable. Your BIRTH day can be too.
