edmonton birth doula supporting new expecting familis


I'm so glad you're here! If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I thought I'd be a birth doula one day, I would've said no! Is that surprising or what?? I grew up in Camrose where I was immersed in the medicalized birth system, and thought that every intervention was necessary.  I always had a feeling I’d be submerged in the birth world, but never imagined it would be like this!

I moved to Edmonton with my lovely partner, Curtis, just before the pandemic hit. Like so many couples, I ended up pregnant with our boy! In 2021, I birthed him unmedicated with doula and OB support at the Sturgeon Hospital in St. Albert and loved my experience. However, it showed me how big the gap in care is for today's modern mothers.

That's when this whole doula gig started for me. My doula suggested that I take her training to become a doula too, and suddenly a passion was lit inside me - I knew this was the perfect career for me! I completed my training in November 2021 and was registered and certified with Doulas of North America (DONA) International by May 2022. I have proudly supported over 25 births including planned cesareans, at-home babies, birthing centre deliveries, hospital births, epidural births, and everything in between! I feel at home in this work and I can't wait to empower, inform, and support you in this journey. 

I'm Grace!


Graceful Birth Doula is Edmonton's Top Doula for Childbirth Education, Babywearing & More!

Why "Your doula grace"?

Funny story, I didn't even pick my first business name! That's how much it truly just fell into place. As a cute gesture, but maybe also a kick in the butt to get started, my partner (and baby daddy) Curtis created business cards for me as a Christmas gift! They were a beautiful cream colour with a basic floral logo stating, "Graceful Birth Doula". On the back, it simply said, "Doula, Grace Pastuck" and my phone number!! My first business name was solidified from there! A cute play on words with my name, but also brings joy into the birth experience. Then in 2023, we decided to incorporate WORLDWIDE and realized we wouldn't be able to use the words as someone else legit swooped in right before us to trade mark it. So no biggie! I started this and nevertheless we persisted, so we rebranded in January 2023 as Your Doula Grace + Birth Pools By Grace! 

Now I'm known as Your Doula Grace. As my business grew, my name and brand needed to grow too. When I was searching for a name that felt "right" to me, I realized that I sign my emails to clients as Your Doula, Grace...and it clicked!
