Informed. Supported. Confident.
Birth and postpartum doula support and evidence-based education for growing families in Sarnia, Ontario. We are committed to supporting the full spectrum of conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and loss experiences.
Distance support available virtually for families worldwide in English & Spanish.
What type of support do you need?
Whether you are giving birth at the hospital or at home, with an epidural or medication-free, vaginally or via c-section; a birth doula can help you feel prepared, guide you and support you continuously and unconditionally through your pregnancy birth and immediately after.
Breastfeeding can have a steep learning curve and having the proper support can make or break your experience. You can turn to Mother&Sol for lactation education and non-judgemental support, or if you just need someone to talk to about the struggles of sharing your body with baby.
For the first 12 months after birth, a postpartum doula can emotionally support you and provide personalized education on newborn care, lactation, pumping, formula feeding, infant development, babywearing, postpartum mental health and recovery after birth.

Javiera Aviles-Saez (she/her)
Hi! I'm Javi. I am a mother to a 3 year old toddler, a birth and postpartum doula, fertility support specialist, childbirth educator, lactation educator and pregnancy and infant loss advocate.
Through my journey as a birthworker, I have poured myself into helping birthing persons have positive and RADIANT birthing experiences by teaching evidence-based prenatal classes, supporting families in the labour room at the hospital and at home, and holding space for the diverse experiences of early parenthood. I'm passionate about creating safe, inclusive and supportive spaces for families to learn about fertility, childbirth, lactation and parenting.
I am committed to anti-racist, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, affirming birthwork.
I believe that...
All pregnant, birthing and postpartum individuals/families deserve support and access to education through their unique experiences.
I believe there is no right way to give birth, as childbirth is the most intense experience in a parent's lifetime and I feel that you should be able to do what works for you and feel supported while doing so.
Breast IS NOT breast! Even though I am a breastfeeding mother, I believe that you know what is best for your baby and your own personal situation. Informed is best! Supported is best!
Any choice made with love is the right one for your family!
At whatever point you are in your journey, it would be my honour to walk alongside you.
"Javiera of Mother And Sol Doula Services assisted me as my birth doula. It was such an empowering experience to have her presence and knowledge to help support me, my partner and baby, through an all-natural home birth. She showed up quickly after my call and coached us so gracefully and patiently throughout a long and beautiful day of labour. Javiera has a unique set of skills as a doula, both in emotional and physical support, when it comes down to those moments where you needed it most. She knew just how to be there in every way through the process of giving birth for our whole family. Javiera’s genuine support, kindness, and openness come with great energy that anyone would love to be around. I highly recommend adding Mother & Sol Doula services to your birth plan."
"The number one thing I can say is that I wish I found Javi sooner in my pregnancy. In a time, both before and after giving birth, when we were inundated with information that was sometimes conflicting, Javi was there with evidence based information and resources to direct us to the information we needed. After giving birth, the virtual support through video was so convenient with a newborn, especially given the stressful and confusing pandemic time. She was, and still is, super accessible, just a message, text or call, away at any time of the day. She is passionate about self-advocating and she is inclusive of all family situations. Javi did an amazing job of ensuring that we were informed and reassured.”
“Javi assisted me postpartum and I couldn't be more grateful. She always made me feel better during my most vulnerable time. She truly cares about her clients and helping them have the best possible experience.”

"Javi was so knowledgeable and informative and made me feel very empowered about my upcoming first-time birth experience. I felt like I knew all the questions to ask at the hospital, what my options were, and what to expect. She creates such a loving and inclusive environment (even virtually). She has such a friendly and caring demeanor and you can feel comfortable enough to ask her any questions. I am so glad that I took her course with my husband. It mentally prepared me for the birthing experience. You can really tell that Javi is so passionate about being a doula and helping others.
I would 100% recommend taking a course with Mother and Sol!"
