Encourage Equip Educate

My greatest desire is that you feel seen and heard- that you are given dignity and grace.  I want you to feel strong and capable and know you are worthy of respect.  Birth is a transformative journey and I would be honoured to be a part of yours.   

Meet the Doula

Stefanie Bittner

I discovered the world of doula work after the birth of my third baby. I've always been passionate about new moms and being a caring presence in my community and becoming a doula seemed like the perfect way to blend that passion with my interest in biology and childbirth.

I have spent a lot of time volunteering with and supporting young families and it excites me to be able to do that in my professional life now as well.  I feel deeply called to support, love and care for women (and their families) as they journey through pregnancy, birth and new motherhood.  Parenting is a challenge and can feel lonely so much of the time.  It is my goal to be there to make the ride smoother, clearer and more graceful.   

I am a Motherwit trained (2016) and certified (2017) birth and postpartum doula living in Vaudreuil with my husband and three children- a boy and two girls who keep me on my toes!  I am also a Child Passenger Safety Technician which allows me to offer car seat education, installation and verification to my clients. Most recently I received my Childbirth Educator certification from Bebo Mia and look forward to adding this service to the community in the years to come. I volunteered as Nourri Source marraine from 2010-2020 and am trained in Adult and Infant CPR.  I am also a member of the ACNN (Academy of Naturopaths and Naturotherapists of Canada) and am therefore able to provide receipts accepted by some insurance providers for birth and postpartum doula care.

What Our Clients Have to Say



Stefanie created  a calming environment and helped me to relax and focus

Having Stefanie by my side for the birth of my daughter was the best decision I could have made....She was incredibly, supportive, helpful, confident and comforting. Her priority was making sure I was comfortable and encouraging me with my birth choices.
