I felt confident having my placenta encapsulated with Hello, Baby! because of the level of professionalism and the time that was taken to explain the process to us. All of our questions were answered and we even got pictures of the process along the way!

Choosing to encapsulate your placenta is a wonderful addition to your postpartum self-care strategy.  There is new research being done all the time about the various benefits ascribed to encapsulating your placenta and we make sure to keep up with these studies as they are released.  We are passionate about your wellness from bump to baby and are always glad to see a woman planning for her physical and emotional recovery from pregnancy and birth.

I was given clear instruction about the process, risks, and benefits of placenta encapsulation and would recommend Hello, Baby!’s services to others, no question. Jenn is enthusiastic and passionate about birth and everything that goes with it!

Hello, Baby is Born!
hello baby peterborough

Hello, Baby! is live and online and we are SO excited!! It's our birthday guys!

Who are we?


The Hello, Baby! team is made up of two local Peterborough women – Jennifer Avis and Steph Hayes. Together, we will be offering education and support to the growing families in and around Peterborough, ON and we honestly could not be more excited to get going.  In fact, we are already working clients and have tons of classes for you to choose from!

What do we do?

Hello, Baby! wants to support and celebrate every stage of your journey from bump to baby. Pregnancy. Birth. Postpartum Wellness. Newborn Care.

As doulas (what is a doula? click here) and childbirth educators working together with our amazing community partners here in Peterborough, it is our goal to create classes, workshops, products, and services that give you the tools and confidence you need to make the choices that are right for you!  

We've been given a BIG thumbs up from Ann Douglas, the author of numerous bestselling books about pregnancy and parenthood, including The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and The Mother of All Baby Books. Check out her blog post on why you should hire a doula!

Community is at the centre of Hello, Baby!

Both of us know how much having a community matters to new parents.  Everything is new and the learning curve can be steep!  We have been there ourselves.  In fact, that is how we met!  (Ask us about it sometime - it’s a great story.) Hello, Baby! is about more than business.  It is about bringing people together in person and online!  


If you are on Facebook join our online community Bump to Baby PTBO where you will find an amazing group of people who you can connect with.  Ask questions, find resources, share experiences, celebrate successes and pick people up when they are feeling down.  It really does take a village so feel free to take your place in ours!

Take a look around.

While you are here, take a look around our website. You will learn more about our classes, workshops, wellness line, and all the amazing ways we can help you celebrate your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience.  Prenatal education, doula services, handmade newborn care products - it is all here!

Thank You.

We couldn’t have done all of this without the support of our friends, families, and the big, beautiful family that is the Peterborough community.  Thank you for your support!  It means so much to us.  

Until next time!

Take Good Care,
Jenn & Steph
