Welcome

My name is Milly Friedman. I have been a Personal Fitness Trainer, Nutrition Coach and Business Owner for over 11 years. I have always been an advocate for woman’s strength. As a Momma to my active kinder Adeline Mae, I have experienced the transition of Motherhood, one of life’s greatest adventures. Becoming a Doula has allowed me to follow my passion to serve women through this great triumph of their lives, Pregnancy and Childbirth. Beginning at baby’s conception a woman begins to experience her body in an beautiful, incomprehensible way. Each pregnancy and birth has its own unique circumstance and individualised experience. My knowledge of anatomy and physiology allows me to support them through their transformation with consistent, continuous physical and emotional support.

How a Person experiences birth matters.

*COVID-19 Response*

We are still here for all of our current and future clients and have adjusted our services accordingly, providing remote prenatal visits, classes and virtual doula support customized to meet your needs. 

Once restrictions are lifted we will resume our regular in-person support.

In the meantime, however, you and your partner need us now more than ever to inform you on current restrictions, calm your fears, and to empower you both to know that you can do this (even without us there in person – if not allowed at the time you give birth).  We will still have your back and provide you with the care and support you need every step of the way.  You don’t have to do this alone!

I am so happy I had Milly along with me on my birth journey. I could not have asked for a kinder, more knowledgable and grounded support person.  She truly made me feel comfortable and confident. What I appreciated most from Milly was her knowledge about physiology and birthing. From the point I started early labour, to the final stretch, she was suggesting positions and movements that would help baby decend. My labour went smoothly, and I genuinely believe her suggestions made the difference. She used her training in Spinning Babies to guide me in early labour as well, when I was experiencing intense pubic bone pain.  Lastly- her nurturing side was greatly appreciated. She rubbed my legs and feet and offered me words of comfort throughout my journey. When I was pushing she counted with me and cheered me on. I always felt safe and supported. I hope to have her with me at my next birth as well!

Milly from @villagebirthcoyeg could not be present at the birth but gave such thoughtful and excellent help both before and after the birth (and basically all over FaceTime and text msg, which is a real skill! All while having her own baby in the process! Women are power!)
