“I wish I knew about you when I needed you.” These are words Precious Moments Babeez staff hear all the time. What is Precious Moments Babeez? It is a team of pre-natal and postpartum professionals that offer a diverse range of services to support your journey from pregnancy, through childbirth and into parenting. PMB was founded by Debbie Fazio 8 years ago. Debbie has three children, two of which are twins. When Debbie had to go through the birth of her children she found there was little resources for multiples. So she built this organization from the ground up. They now service Toronto, Peel-Halton, York, Hamilton-Burlington, Dufferin, Kitchener-Waterloo and the Niagara Region. Together, these wonderful women work as a team including Naturopaths, Paramedics, Nurses, Doulas and Sleep Consultants. Some of the PMB services need can be claimed if clients are needing that help financially. They are also working with community partners on a fund raising project that would help support families who may not be able to afford it.
Meet Natasa Oliveira. She’s a Professional Doula, servicing the Niagara Region and surrounding locations as the Director for Precious Moments Babeez Niagara Region.
Initially Natasa decided to become involved because of mutual friendships, she’s always been the caring, nurturing type. It opened up a world she didn’t know existed and now she’ll never look back. Recently Natasa helped a mom with three beautiful 4-5 lb triplets. She was very involved with their family and found the experience especially rewarding. “What you get out of supporting a family makes everything worth it. It’s being there when they need you most. It’s endless support.” Natasa says that once the contract ends with a client, the support continues, as they keep in touch and she always offers to continue to help. Natasa works with a team of 6-7 women servicing Niagara. She specializes as a labour and postpartum Doula. As the Director, she intends to roll out some great programs including Babeez Ed, which is a Baby Basics program and Pre-natal classes which Dads will be excited to attend.
This spring PMB will be hosting a baby shower, where pregnant moms can visit and enjoy being pampered. It’ll be a smaller scale event where pregnant moms can find out more about family friendly professionals available in their community.
