Walmart Canada knows we all have questions. They are helping new and expecting parents to get the answers they need by hosting professional doulas in select baby departments across Canada this month to advise on topics like breastfeeding, baby wearing techniques and more. In my neck of the woods, doula Kyla Austin will be available at the Walmart Scarborough West Supercentre (1900 Eglinton Ave E) to answer any of your baby questions, on Tuesdays and Saturdays until January 24. This would have been a godsend for me. Free doula advice while you shop!!
This service is a great addition to Walmart Canada's baby departments, building on the recent introduction of their baby registry. Creating your baby registry is an easy way to get organized and let everyone know how they can help you prepare for your family’s big day. It just takes three simple steps on Walmart.ca to set up and share with friends and family.
So, if you are expecting and can't get to Scarborough, check out your local Walmart and ask if they are participating in this program. And congratulations on your new bundle of love!!
