Amy Buckman

Birth & Postpartum Doula

Amy is a Certified Birth & Certifying Postpartum Doula. She believes that how you feel about your birth and postpartum is a pretty big deal. There is a lifetime of connection to figure out and helping families start off feeling supported and confident is why she does this work full-time. 

Things that make Amy happy are feeling calm, seeing the positive, and being really honest about the tough things. Amy’s husband and her golden retriever are her best friends and to be truthful, they all have the same personality type :) Being outside in all seasons, lots of movement, and good food are her self-care. She also LOVES seeing people find their way. In addition to enjoying this in her doula life, she has two teens that keep making every stage of parenting her new favourite. 

Every pregnancy, labour, birth, and postpartum is different. Amy supports all the ways to birth a baby and provides kind, unbiased, non-judgemental assistance. Amy knows that the goal isn’t to figure out how to do it RIGHT. The goals is just to adjust, learn tools that may be helpful, and find a new rhythm that gets the family wheels turning. You’ve got this.

Amy proudly sits on the board of the Calgary Doula Association, has training in Spinning Babies® for labour preparation and comfort measures, is certified as a birth doula through DONA International and has completed over 30 hours in breastfeeding education.

“Amy was superb. She played a dynamic role in helping us navigate not only the birthing process, but the advice provided to us by the medical staff. It was very useful to have someone else there to ensure we knew our options.

Thanks for the very tender and compassionate support you provided us. We both greatly appreciate you as a person and a Doula!”

“As first time parents with no other family in Calgary, we decided to hire a postpartum Doula to help with our two-month-old son. We had such a positive experience with Amy! She has an easy-going nature and quickly integrated into our home. She is an excellent communicator and was able to elicit our needs. She's also efficient and took excellent care of us and our baby. We highly recommend her services.“
