About Bumps Upon A Time

Bumps Upon A Time is not just another doula service. Karena’s approach is deeply rooted in the belief that every birthing person should have the freedom to bring their child into the world in a way that aligns with their preferences and comfort. Karena’s philosophy is simple but powerful – it’s all about informed choices and support.

Services Offered

As an Edmonton doula, Karena’s services cover various aspects of the pregnancy journey:

  1. Prenatal Support: Karena provides comprehensive prenatal education, equipping parents with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their birthing experience. This education includes discussions about birth preferences, postpartum planning, comfort measures during labour, and newborn care workshops.
  2. Labour Support: Karena and her team of doulas are there with you during labour, ensuring you have the emotional and physical support you need. She takes a background role, allowing you to make your own decisions while providing guidance and advocating for your choices.
  3. Postpartum Support: Bumps Upon A Time goes beyond the birthing experience. Karena offers postpartum support tailored to the unique goals of each family. This includes cooking, meal prepping, overnight support, and even specialized East Asian cultural postpartum confinement support.
  4. Supplementary Education: In addition to the core services, Karena offers supplementary education sessions, enabling families to explore a wealth of information and resources.

The Ideal Time to Connect

If you’re considering the services of Bumps Upon A Time, Karena recommends reaching out in the mid to late first trimester (around 12-14 weeks). This allows ample time to secure your spot and engage in the educational process while feeling more settled and optimistic about your pregnancy journey.
