Why work with us?

Not your average doulas

Everyone on our team is a Naturopathic Doctor, that means your doula or lactation consultant has extensive medical training and a scope of practice well above and beyond that of a typical doula. We have options in our tool kit that aren't available to most doulas and because we are regulated health professionals most of our services are covered by insurance if you have an extended benefits plan. We even direct bill most insurance companies!

Our support is tailored to your needs

Your family is unique, and your birth experience should be too! We don't have doula packages because we take the time to figure out exactly what kind of support you need. That could mean prenatal classes, a sleep consult, an in home postpartum visit to discuss your recovery. From bump to baby, we are here to support you every step of the way. 

We come to you

YDD doesn't have a physical office space, all of our care is provided either virtually or in your home. We love this because we can see your space and give you tips on labour coping techniques or infant sleep set up that's individual to you. Our clients also love that they don't have added travel with a newborn!

Flomax, generically known as tamsulosin, is a medication primarily used to treat symptoms of an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH). Its primary function is to relax the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate. This relaxation leads to improved urine flow and reduced symptoms of BPH such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, weak stream, and the need to urinate frequently or urgently. Flomax is an alpha-blocker, which means it works by blocking alpha receptors in certain areas of the body. In the case of BPH, Flomax targets the alpha receptors in the muscles of the prostate and bladder, which helps to relieve urinary symptoms. The usual dose of Flomax is one capsule taken once a day, approximately 30 minutes after the same meal each day. It's important to follow the dosing instructions provided by a healthcare provider to ensure effectiveness and reduce the risk of side effects. Some common side effects of Flomax include dizziness, abnormal ejaculation, and runny nose. It is important to discuss any side effects or concerns with a healthcare provider. Patients with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain other medications should use Flomax with caution. Therefore, it's crucial to discuss all medications and conditions with a healthcare provider before starting Flomax. For those looking to manage symptoms of an enlarged prostate, it's possible to order flomax through a prescription from a healthcare provider. Always ensure to obtain it from reputable pharmacies or healthcare providers.
