Childbirth is a beautiful thing but it can also be scary and overwhelming.
Which is perfectly understandable, since growing and birthing a baby is one of the most challenging things most of us will ever do. Luckily, the right support can make all the difference – and I’m here to provide it for you.
I’m Amelia Rebolo, a Brampton-based doula, placenta encapsulation specialist and infant sleep educator serving Peel Region, Vaughan, and Oakville.
I’ve always had a keen interest in reproductive health and women’s rights – I have a degree in philosophy and women’s studies – but it wasn’t until after my third doula-supported birth that I was inspired to follow my passion.
After working for a decade in banking (yes, banking!), I left the comfortable monotony of my corporate career to becoming a doula and fulfil my life’s purpose.
In 2017, I became certified as a doula through Bebo Mia (an intensive process that includes attending births, providing postpartum support, and a ton of written assignments in addition to the final exam) and launched my business later that year.
Since then, I’ve been supporting women in Brampton and beyond – and loving every minute.
My goal is – always – to provide you with the physical, emotional, and informational support you need to feel empowered and in-control of the decisions you make during your pregnancy, labor and birth.
And that’s because I learned firsthand through my own experience just how impactful that can be – both during and after childbirth.
When I’m not supporting women, you’ll find me spending quality time with my husband our three children (and, of course, the family cat). I also love to read, crochet, and go for walks.
My promise to you:
- To Provide Evidence-Based Information to support your decision-making.
- To Provide Judgment-Free Support of all your decisions, whatever they may be.
- To work to break down Socio-Economic Barriers to Support through partnership with local charitable organizations.
