COVID-19 : The birth support service continues to be a valid and effective option to prepare you for a positive and precious moment. Ask if your chosen birthplace accepts birth attendants. If the protocols are not yet open, a support service can still be a way of reassuring yourself in this uncertain period and home presence in the early stages of childbirth remains possible.
« An extraordinary birth experience, thanks to the Les Premiers Moments team. A human approach where I always felt confident, respected and well advised during this magical moment. My partner and I highly recommend their services! » -Stéphanie Potvin, 5 stars review on Google

The advantages and our take on the doula’s role
A study by Washington University proves that the continuous presence of a doula during birth leads to:
- 60% less epidurals
- 50% less caesarean section
- 25% faster deliveries
- 30% less medication related to pain management
- 40% less use of forceps and suction cups
- 40% less artificial oxytocin to induce childbirth
The health of the parents and the child is always at the centre of the care received during childbirth. But what about the emotional experience of the family?
Having a doula present at your birth can make you feel more supported.
Someone who knows you, with your history, expectations and needs, can help bridge the gap with hospital protocols.
A doula can support you during a home, hospital or birth centre birth.
She has many tools and can help manage the intensity of contractions and the birth process for both you and your baby.
A doula will also visit you a few days after birth to offer support and answer questions.
She has training in breastfeeding and is there to answer all your questions.
The professional body for Doulas in Quebec is the Quebec Doula Association (QAD). By hiring a doula that is a member of AQAN, you make sure to hire a person who is fully trained. We cover the city of Montreal, a 50km radius outside Montreal on the north and south shore!
