My name is Ali Marinuk, a Saskatoon doula.

I am a trained Birth & Postpartum Doula and Childbirth Educator with Doula Training Canada. I offer in-person support in Saskatoon & online. So, I can support families near and far.

As your doula, I want you to feel supported and confident in your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum!

I recognize the large influence that childbirth and becoming a parent has on a person. This is why I want to make this a positive experience for you. Specifically, doula support will ensure you & your family have continuous support. I will provide you with evidence-based resources so you can make informed decisions. I will also ensure all of your questions & concerns are addressed. Welcoming Baby offers both birth & postpartum support. In other words, you are supported all across your journey to becoming a parent.

Birth and Postpartum Doula

“Ali was nothing but amazing during this whole process. She helped make my birth an amazing one and I cannot express my gratitude enough to her. If you are considering a doula please consider Welcoming Baby as you will not be disappointed and Ali will ensure you feel supported. Thank you so much Ali. I will remember you forever because you made my pregnancy and birth journey less fearful and more beautiful then I ever thought it could be.” - Meghan & Mitch

When we first started looking into a doula we were unsure what to expect. Friends had recommended Ali so we set up a consult to learn more. We immediately knew she was a good fit for us, she was so easy to talk to, explained our options and answered all of our questions (no matter how silly they might’ve been). Having Ali available for pre and postnatal support and at delivery made us feel confident and supported through the crazy rollercoaster of welcoming a baby into this world! - Vanessa & Garret

"Ali was a wonderful addition to my birth team, she was so helpful, attentive, and respectful of my birthing space. I am so grateful for her help, encouragement, and knowledge. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is expecting, and is considering a doula" - Neve. N. 

“A huge thank you to Ali for guiding me the best way she could through my pre/post natal journey. She allowed me to feel safe and answered any questions I had for my upcoming birth plan. She is mentally preparing me for my labor process with breathing techniques, wants and needs during labor, stretching, and other ways that could help me during my labor.” - Sheila C.

"We hired Ali as our birth doula for our first baby and we were so glad we did!! It was so nice always having someone available to ask ANY questions 24/7 before he was born and also help my husband (maybe him a little more haha) and I prepare for baby. She is very well educated and has just a calming demeanour where you instantly feel connected to her. From the very start of labour till he was here safe in our arms she was there! Our labour wasn't an easy one and she stayed by our sides through the whole thing. We will definitely be hiring her when our next baby is on the way!!" - Victoria & Kyle

Ali was amazing. From start to finish she went above and beyond, making sure my girlfriend and I had everything we needed and we’re always supported. Her postpartum care was also great. It was something I didn’t realize the importance of until we needed it. I honestly don’t know how we would have done it without Ali, thank you again! - Kelsey F.
