Discover Birth is on a mission to change the world and believes that through positive birth and early parenting experiences, women, children and families can be happier, healthier and closer.
The birth of a baby has a long lasting impact on the physical and mental health of a woman, baby and family. The quality of emotional care a woman receives during labour, birth and immediately after is one vital factor that can strengthen or weaken the mother-child relationship. Families need consistent, continuous reassurance, comfort, encouragement and respect from those around them during childbirth and early parenthood. Research suggests that good support systems have been found to reduce anxiety, increase relaxation and a sense of well-being.

Founder and Chief Doula & Educator
Stefanie Antunes had her first baby in 1998. The experience was NOT AT ALL what she had hoped for. Years later before the birth of her second baby, she made sure to attend childbirth education classes and become an informed decision-maker. This time, with the knowledge she needed and techniques she learned in class, she had a fabulous experience. Right away she knew she wanted to help other women to prepare for this important day. She became a Lamaze® Certified Childbirth Educator, and later a certified doula through DONA. She is the former Public Relations Director for DONA International and sits on the board of the Association of Ontario Doulas.
She believes that the world can be a better place if parents can have more positive childbirth experiences, allowing them to bond properly with their babies. She works tirelessly to change the world in this aspect…one family at a time.
