Meet the Doulas

We are professional Doulas attending birth in Downtown Toronto since 2014. As birth and postpartum doulas, we are specially trained to provide information, physical comfort and emotional peace of mind to parents prenatally, during labour and birth, and in the immediate postpartum period.

At Doulas on Bikes, we are additionally qualified to support Hypno-Birthing parents, we use robozo and accupressure techniques for labour, and we are reliably updating and upgrading our skills. We are also birth educators! We specialize in lactation and childbirth education and offer regular workshops on various birth and parenting related topics.

Mira

Knowledgeable and personable: Mira has a knack for high stress environments.

Years of experience working in busy places gives Mira an ethereal calm in any crowd, a calmness that has brought ease to anxious parents. Great at managing situations, she will help to create the environment you want for your birth in the gentlest of ways. 

Mira is a mom to two precious babies born at home with midwives. Mira’s personal goals include reducing her family’s carbon footprint and helping other parents reach their environmental goals.

    Vera

    Caring and compassionate: Vera provides strong support for parents-to-be.

    Vera is natural in a variety of birthing environments and has attended births in hospitals, at the birth centre and in private homes; in Canada and in Mexico.

    A great fit for supporting single parents, mature (age 40+) birthing people, non-conforming family arrangements and unmedicated births. She has a calm personality suitable for gentle birth environments.

    She herself is a mother to 2 teen children, both born in hospital with midwives. She enjoys many back-to-basic endeavours like canning and harvesting. And Vera is an avid cyclist, of course!

    Lana

    Lana offers grounding and direction for new parents in their postpartum time.

    She is the eldest and the most junior of the Doulas on Bikes team. But she comes with some very early doula-type experience dating back to when she was 10 years-old and Mom gave birth to Mira. “At that age, I was excited to have a baby sister. But I also remembering going into a kind of shock around how our lives turned upside down. In our household, we were all pitching in, kids too from an early age. So it was no different here. Mom was self-employed was back to work right upon her return from the hospital. And I was changing diapers and soothing a crying baby a lot of the time.”

    As a postpartum doula, Lana is a reassuring presence for new parents as they navigate this important transitional time from providing emotional support and comfort to pitching in with physical tasks to providing guidance and information.

    In addition to her doula work, Lana also hosts regular women’s circles, offers womb healing, teaches yoga, and is a writer.
