Thank you for visiting the Helping Hands
Doula web site. My name is Aline Paradis
and I am a Certified Postpartum Doula  
and Lactation Counselor providing
bilingual services in the
Ottawa-Gatineau region.
About me

I have been working as a Postpartum Doula since 2005 and after training and
field work, I received my Postpartum Doula certification in 2007 through DONA
International. I am also certified in Adult, Child and Infant CPR.

I have always been interested in breastfeeding, and in the Spring of 2011, I
earned my Certificate as a
Certified Lactation Counselor through the Healthy
Children Center for Breastfeeding
awarded by the Academy of Lactation Policy and

I am married and a mother of three school age children so I understand the
challenges that arise when a baby (or babies, in case of a multiple birth) comes
along. I have always been interested in helping mothers with their newborn, and
now that my children are older I can do just that!

Through my website, you will find more information about the services I offer as a
Postpartum Doula and as a Certified Lactation Counselor. Don't hesitate to call if
you have any questions!
