Meet owner and operator Liza Hagusa.
I have been the owner and operator of Mother Me and a certified Doula for the past 15 years.
From a very early age, I had the entrepreneurial spirit. Growing up in Penticton, I took advantage of the tourist season by creating a babysitting service for the local hotels and their clients.
My vision for Mother Me was “we are just going to show up”. My goal was to provide a reliable, professional, non-judgmental support service for new families in the Lower Mainland area.
Mother Me is now the Vancouver area’s premiere postpartum doula agency.
We have grown steadily over the last 15 years. Along the way, Mother Me has been voted the “Best Doula and Midwifery Agency” for three consecutive years from Westcoast Families and I have been nominated twice for the “Entrepreneurial of the Year” award from YWCA and RBC.
Since starting Mother Me, it has developed into a highly regarded professional agency with 32 Post-Natal Doulas, including RNs and LPNs.
We are committed to ongoing professional development, staying up-to-date with the latest information regarding the best care for your family.
As of 2014, all Mother Me Doulas complete a training course based on the specific care expected for Mother Me clients, which includes fulfilling up to 20 hours of volunteer service with families who are referred to us by hospital social workers.
