MY STORY

 

image1

I have loved babies from as far back as I can remember but I didn’t always know i would become a birth and postpartum doula. Firstly I didn’t even know what a doula was until the birth of my second child, and even then I returned to my corporate job only to realize that it didn’t fulfill my life’s purpose or my desire to connect with people in a meaningful way. So what is a doula anyways? In short a doula is a person who provides continuous emotional and physical support to you during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum time. But this doesn’t really tell you why I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula…

Initially I became a doula to gain more experience as a birth worker while working towards my midwifery education, but the more families I supported the more I felt a deep sense of love for what I do and wholeheartedly know that this is where I belong.

Pregnancy and Birth

This is an exciting time of transition for you and your family. At the moment of birth not only is a child born but a family is also born and the well being of the whole family is important to me. I believe in your choices throughout your birthing journey and am committed to providing you with guidance, support, and encouragement so that you can make the right choices that is best for you and your family.  

Post-Partum  

In our modern culture and society it sometimes feels like we are moving away from a community based system that impact our physical, mental and social well being. This support is so vital to families during the transitional times of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum which is why I aim to provide you and your family with personalized care, reassurance and nourishment you need during this time. I will also provide you with resources so that you can build a community of support for your own family.

I’d love to get to know you more and invite you to contact me for a free initial meeting to discuss my services further and answer any questions you might have about your upcoming birth or postpartum period. 

 

"We had a wonderful experience with Janice as our doula at the birth of our second child. She is highly knowledgeable and informed us of our options without pushing us one way or the other. During labour and delivery, she was a calm, positive and nurturing presence. She was not at all intrusive, but stepped in at the appropriate times. We consider ourselves lucky to have had Janice attend our son's birth and recommend her without hesitation."

WHAT SUPPORT FEELS LIKE

"Janice Lim Hing was our wonderful doula. She was amazing. She was a wealth of knowledge and support during my pregnancy. She shared information and researched answers to my million of questions and concerns. She was calming and so kind to all my needs. My husband appreciated having her with us the whole time as this was a new experience for both of us. Janice supported both my needs and my husband's. I recommend her for anyone who needs a caring, kind soul who knows exactly what to say when you need it. I love her!"

"We were unsure about whether we would need a doula at first, I was so happy that I chose Janice, as she was such a calming, supportive and helpful presence. She made me feel comfortable, focused and empowered throughout my birth experience and enabled my partner to be there for me. I ended up having to transfer to hospital, and she went back to our home after the birth and tidied up in order for us to be able to bring baby home to an organized house, which was so thoughtful - I am still so thankful for that! I would highly recommend Janice to other pregnant women who are looking for a calming and empowering presence for their birth experience."

"We were fortunate enough to have Janice as our post-partum doula. Our son was born prematurely and our lives were very much uprooted. Janice very much became our rock, helping us while in the hospital and helping us transition at home. Her dedication, expertise and wonderful philosophy around birth and parenting guided us during the difficult days and helped us find ourselves again as a family. We don’t know what we would have done without her!"
