Labour + Delivery Support (Physio Doula Services)

In May 2015, Trish Brunelle became one of 17 Canadian Physiotherapists qualified to provide Continuous Labour & Delivery Support. The goal is to use the unique biomechanical knowledge that physiotherapists have, in order to assist in protecting the pelvic floor, spine or other orthopaedic conditions during labour and delivery while working with each family's individual birth plans. One application for birth attendance is accepted each month.  

A complete course of care includes:

  1. one prenatal consultation,
  2. a three way meeting with the physiotherapist, birthing mom and dad,
  3. text, phone or email support throughout the last 4 weeks of the pregnancy,
  4. the entire Labour and Delivery,
  5. text/phone support for the 4 weeks postnatally and
  6. one postnatal visit.

These services do fall under the scope of physiotherapy care and as such, may be partially covered under many benefit plans. Please contact the clinic if you are interested in more information or booking a consultation for these services.
