Northern Mama Maternal Services

Birth and postpartum support in Sudbury and beyond

Studies show that the right support can reduce anxiety, improve your birth experience, and make the transition to motherhood easier.

Whether you need a doula, extra hands in the postpartum period, someone to talk to when the going gets tough, or help getting some (much-needed) sleep, we’re here to support you – both physically and mentally before, during, and after your birth.

About Us

At Northern Mama, we’re committed to caring for your head, your heart and your body in equal measure. Which is why every member of our team has a psychology and/or social work background.

Birth Support

A birth doula is there to provide you – and your partner – with the support you need, when you need it so you can have a positive birth experience (whatever that means for you).

Post Partum Support

Having an extra set of hands – and a trustworthy source of information and support – in the days and weeks following birth can make ALL the difference.

Our therapy service is in-home (saving you from having to schlep across town – or even get dressed if you don’t want to) or via skype or phone.

 “this was my most joyous and satisfying birth experience. The difference? My doula. Meg was so affirming, made me feel confident in my decisions and made the atmosphere more fun and joyful when the big day came. 

Margaret Mom to Seth, Peyton and Sadie January 30, 2018

I had the extreme privilege of having Meg look after us during our pregnancy and birthing process. As s first time mom …this was the BEST thing we could have done.
