professional support for pregnancy, birth and beyond
Hi! I'm Mary-Lynne
Birth & Postpartum Doula & Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator
I'm so glad you're here!
I am the owner and founder of Mary-Lynne Stauble Doula Services, and I have been providing professional, nurturing and personalized pregnancy, birth and postpartum support to Cochrane and Calgary families since 2016.
After several years working as a Registered Nurse in Calgary, I made the decision to jump wholeheartedly into birth and postpartum work and certify as a doula and childbirth educator. As a birth professional, my goal is to provide exceptional, evidence-based care to growing families.
I am a wife, mom of two, and I love coffee, the beach, and all things birth, babies and parenting!
I would love to hear about your family!

premier childbirth education and doula support service for Cochrane and Calgary families
You can't choreograph your labour and birth, but you can prepare for it.
With private and fully customized childbirth education, I want you to feel confident, supported and powerful as you ask questions, make decisions, and navigate your path through pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
Based on Lamaze's Six Healthy Birth Practices, my childbirth education classes intertwine evidence-based practices with real-world, relatable examples and hands-on practice.
Childbirth education is provided in your home, in two 3-hour sessions or three 2-hour sessions, to suit your family and your schedule.
The birth of your baby will be a moment you never forget.
As your doula, my goal is to help you feel informed, confident and prepared during pregnancy so that you walk into your labour and birth knowing you've got this.
From helping with birth preferences and options, to being there with expertise, reassurance and a caring touch as you welcome your baby, and providing encouragement and skilled guidance with that very first feed, I will be by your side through it all.
I happily support births in your home, The Arbour Birth Centre, Foothills Medical Centre, Rockyview General Hospital, Peter Lougheed Centre, South Health Campus and the Canmore General Hospital. I work with clients who are in the care of midwives, low risk maternity clinics, OBs, and family doctors.
Birth doula support includes two prenatal sessions (virtually or in-home) and 24/7 availability by phone or text.
Nurturing your family as you welcome baby home.
Bringing your baby home is one of the most important and exciting moments of new parenthood. It can also feel overwhelming as you navigate the physical and emotional recovery from childbirth, sleep deprivation and adjustment to life with a newborn.
As your postpartum doula, I will be by your side to help ease your transition into parenthood, providing gentle guidance and support so you feel prepared and confident in those first days and weeks with your baby. Breastfeeding support, help with newborn care, tips and tricks for surviving those sleepless nights and assisting with household tasks are just a few ways your postpartum doula nurtures you while you bond with your beautiful new baby.
