About Les Premiers Moments
The main service of Les Premiers Moments is birth support, which consists of private prenatal classes with future parents. During childbirth (at the hospital, at the birthing center or at home), your doula is present from start to finish. She does not replace the doctor or the midwife, she brings emotional and physical support for the parents and the person giving birth.
People who really stand out
Our team has an experience of more than 950 accompanied deliveries. That's more than 3000 hours spent accompanying future parents during their childbirth. We have taught prenatal classes to more than 150 parents since 2017.We support in 27 hospitals and birthing centers in our territory.
The story of Les Premiers Moments
Based in Montreal, Les Premiers Moments was created in June 2017 by Camille Maheu, doula, naturopath in perinatal care and vice-president of the Quebec Association of Birth Support Women.
It was the lack of inclusive representation and general openness in the birthing community that led Camille to launch this project. Now, many doulas identify with the values that Les Premiers Moments promotes and decide to work on them as a team.
The inclusion of all is at the heart of our values. Les Premiers Moments is a team of intersectional feminist multidisciplinary doulas and therapists. We have no preconceived notions of the perfect family or birth other than the one you give us.
Our mission is to support families with advice adapted to each reality with the respect, empathy and openness that characterize us. We offer all our services in Quebec Sign Language to be able to promote our inclusive vision of society at all levels.
No matter what form your family takes, we will welcome you without judgment, with open arms and with a smile.
Inclusion of all is at the center of our values and Les Premiers Moments is a team of intersectional feminist multidisciplinary doulas and therapists.
Our banner also signifies a home for birth attendants who work alone in their region. Entrepreneurship can be isolating, and we want all childbirth enthusiasts to enjoy and thrive in their work.
