S a m a n t h a W h i t m a n

My name is Samantha, and I am very excited that I could potentially be supporting you soon! I am the first certifying doula in Central Newfoundland, servicing Clarenville, Gander and Grand Falls hospitals. I am excited to help to change the birth culture in this province and to provide this incredible service to the women in this area.

I am originally from Nova Scotia, but have been living in Newfoundland for almost 7 years. I have been working as a paramedic for the last 10 years, and have lots of experience in the health care field. I am confident in my abilities, and am able to remain calm during stressful situations and can pass that calm on to others around me. Although I love my work, I'm ready for a change, and have always wanted to be a part of this wonderful moment in people's lives. I have a strong passion for supporting women during their birth, and believe that all women deserve to have their wishes heard and respected. I am also excited to be able to give the support team the confidence to be an integral part of the birthing process, and more than just an observer. Your family knows you better than anyone, and so know the best way to support you. I'd love to help them be everything you need and more!

My hope is to make you feel empowered and to help you take control of this important moment. I know that, with the support of your family and myself, you will rock this!
