Heather Mitchell/My Doula Oblongata

Bright's Grove, Ontario N0N 1C0

Hi, my name is Heather and I am a postpartum doula with My Doula Oblongata. Fun Fact! The medulla oblongata is a part of the brain that is located at the base of the brain attached to the spinal cord. It helps to regulate your autonomic nervous system such as: rest, relaxation, and digestion.

These are some tenants that I focus on in my practice. I cook homemade postpartum meals for the birth person and their family. I encourage rest and relaxation through holistic remedies and spiritual practices. This can include herbal sitz baths, healing teas, and food, meditation, affirmations, and aromatherapy.

I want to encourage the birth person to accept this help in order to heal and minimize any postpartum disorders. With that being said, mental health is a focal point in my practice and I want to normalize the conversation. While also having services readily available in the event of mental distress.

I have two boys of my own and I can relate to the postpartum experience. I am excited to serve my community and make a difference in peoples lives.
