The moment the pregnancy test turns positive, the endless choices in parenting begin. You’ll agonize over which car seat is the safest, what theme to decorate the nursery, and where the baby will sleep. Not to mention some of the other exhaustive decisions to be made:

“Which provider is best for me?”

“Do I want an epidural?”

“What if I can’t breastfeed?”

And the baby isn’t even born yet!

How do you build confidence in all the chaos? You won’t know what decision fatigue feels like until you start your parenting journey—its exciting, but it can be overwhelming. What should I do in pregnancy? During labour? After baby arrives? A birth or postpartum doula can help you make sense of all these possibilities, concerns, and questions, but here’s another choice—which one do you hire? Google ‘doula’ and you’ll be inundated with choices. How do you know who will exceed your expectations? Who is respected by health care providers? At Elite Doula Group, we take the guesswork out of all your needs—from prenatal classes, birth and postpartum doulas, placenta encapsulation, to lactation support—everything you’ll need—all in one place, from people you can trust.

Here’s just a few reasons why choosing Elite Doula Group should be one of the easiest decisions you make in this most important time in your life.


Experience

We have over 35 years combined experience in childbirth education, labour support, newborn care, breastfeeding, and have worked thousands of hours with our clients and their babies. We have two of the most experienced doulas in Southern Alberta leading the team. Even one of our newest postpartum doulas, who only trained a year ago, has already worked over 1000 hours with families and her knowledge of twins and triplets is more than what someone can claim after 5 years! Our doulas have done it all, providing true unbiased support specific to your growing family. And if your doula hasn’t seen it, someone else on our team has!


Availability

Because Elite Doula Group serves all southern Alberta; not just the cities of Calgary, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat, we have the staff available for you, where you need it, and when you need it. Delivering your baby in Brooks? Want overnight care in Cochrane? No Problem. Need your placenta encapsulated in Pincher Creek? Want private childbirth education classes in Airdrie? You got it! Our team will do whatever it takes to get you the service you want, when you want it, wherever you are in southern Alberta, because this is our commitment.


Professionalism

Customer service and confidentiality are priorities. Our team is held to the strictest of standards and scope of practice. We are certified in our respectful fields, or are quickly on the way to being so. This is because we believe that certification is imperative to give peace of mind to new parents. And there is never a need to worry that your private, intimate experience, will be blasted all over social media.


Mentorship

Elite Doula Group has paired two passionate powerhouses together. Heather Crossan is a doula trainer, childbirth educator trainer, and the only DONA Certified Advanced Doula in Alberta. Loree Siermachesky is a veteran doula who has personally attended more births than most ‘groups’ combined, has more certifications than letters in her last name, and was the winner of the prestigious 2013 Medicine Hat Small Business of the Year Award. Together, through leadership, we have armed our team with the knowledge and support they need to successfully and skillfully do this work. Our doulas are hand picked from the best of the best. When someone is newly trained, we all work together to make sure everyone is completely confident from the very start.


Although it’s easy to make all these claims on the Internet, we can easily substantiate these statements. We have thousands of satisfied clients and countless certifications behind us. We have been doing this work, with people like you, for decades. We are never satisfied with the status quo or the bare minimum. We push the boundaries, search for the best, and always achieve excellence.

We all want the best for our babies. Are you ready to book the best for your family? Are you ready for an expert to help you navigate the decisions you must make as a new parent? We’re only a phone call, text, or email away—ready when you need us.


Loree Siermachesky works as a multi-certified labour and postpartum doula, certified Lamaze childbirth educator, certified breastfeeding counselor, certified placenta encapsulation specialist and a certified car seat technician in Medicine Hat and Lethbridge. She has had the honour of attending over 1400 births in the last 20 years. She is well-known and greatly respected by the medical providers in Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Brooks, Taber, and Calgary. She cares deeply for this profession and even more for her clientele, honoring them in whatever method of birth they choose, or helping them transition to new parenthood as they wish.
