Why choose New Arrivals?


Our goal is to help you have a positive pregnancy and childbirth experience: to work toward your vision of how you’d like the birth to be—and to adapt when nature demands a change of plan.

We attend home and hospital births, providing care, comfort and support  to expecting moms, their partners and family and friends who will be participating in the birth experience. For us, it is both an honour and a privilege.

New Arrivals is a venture of Shannon MacFarlane. Shannon has trained with CAPPA as an antepartum, labour and postpartum doula, and with DONA as a labour doula. She is a committed and caring professional that in the last 10 years has supported over 350 families in Ottawa and surounding area.
