About Me

Deirdre Bain

I am an intersectional feminist doula, meaning that I practice anti-oppressive methods of care, guided by the needs & wishes of my clients. It also means that I provide individualized, trauma-informed doula care to birthing people & their partners. 


I have chosen a career as a doula because I believe it is the best combination of my skills and interests, mobilized to nurture my community. I have always been a nurturer, as a friend, sister, daughter & partner. In my work, I strive to create a trust & openness with my clients which allows them to see me as a friend who is also their personal expert in pregnancy, birth & parenting. 

My goal with each client is to foster a sense of self-confidence. I will gently guide you through education & self-reflection, & encourage you to fully articulate your wishes for birth & postpartum. 

I believe that by actively supporting bodily autonomy & informed choice, we can break cycles of trauma & make way for a society that puts mental health & body sovereignty first. I practice doula work in the hope that by supporting health for parents, they will impart health onto their children, which in turn creates a healthy society.

Great news! It is still possible to receive virtual & in-person doula care during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Increased precautions need to be taken to stop the spread of the virus.

Olivia's Testimonial

"Deirdre is one of the warmest people I have ever interacted with. Her calm demeanour was what first gave me the impression that she was the right person to support me with the birth of my second child. I can hardly put into words how incredible her presence was during my birth and postpartum. She helped me prepare for a home birth, feel comfortable during the whole birth experience, and comfort my firstborn while I laboured. I don't know what I would have done without her, especially her postpartum support. I cannot imagine how I would have done without her."

I would like to acknowledge that I have built my home and my business on the traditional & unceded territory of the Anishnaabeg people. 

I thank the Indigenous peoples of this region for allowing me to live & thrive here.

I stand with Indigenous peoples in what is currently known as Canada, & the world over. Their fight for land, resources & human decency is a fight for the liberation of all people.
