Vitae means life. Birth is at the heart of life.
Vitae (pronounced Vee-Tay) is a Saskatoon, SK based group of three, passionate, experienced doulas: Chelsea Belt, Sasha Veitch and Jude Hutchinson. We are professionally trained and offer our own childbirth preparation classes, provide doula services for labour, birth and postpartum, as well as birth photography, placenta encapsulation, facilitate a cesarean support group and pregnancy and infant nutrition consultations.
You won't be alone! We'll be with you every step of the way.
We want to help you have the information, coping skills, resources and inner confidence to move through one of life’s most powerful, life-changing events - the birth of your child - empowered and supported. As the labour approaches, we are on call, available to you to explain the normal progress of labour, address anxieties, and help you feel ready and well supported.
When the time arrives for baby to be born, we are at your side.
Whether you give birth at home or at the hospital, we provide continuous support so you are more comfortable physically, have access to information and tools that may enhance your labour as well as having the emotional reassurance that is so necessary. We help you understand what is happening and what options are available for your care. We don’t speak for you, but will help you communicate your needs and wishes as your birth unfolds. It’s your baby’s birth day, and also the day you are born as parents. What a privilege to be part of it!
