+Doula Canada Provincial Lesion Ontario
I'm a proud mother of one happy, healthy little boy and two angels above me, and a wife to a wonderful man and father.
I have a background in Early Childhood Education, so my love for children has always been strong. Without even knowing it, my Doula journey began when I assisted and supported by best friend through her amazing journey into motherhood at the birth of her two children when I was just 16. A love for pregnancy and childbirth grew within me as I performed the role that is defined as “DOULA”.
My passion for all things pregnancy and birth related grew even stronger through my personal experiences. In 2015, with the loss of our first child, the birth of my son in 2016, and again with the loss of our second angel in 2017. I am now expecting our 4th (2nd) child in May 2018 and this passion continues to grow.
My experiences have led to a passionate career supporting families through fertility, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and postpartum times. I am also now the Provincial Lesion for Ontario at Doula Canada!
I know I have found what I love and was meant to do;
helping family’s transition into this journey we call parenthood and support doulas throughout Canada.
I love supporting my clients through this intimate process of creating life. Whether that is through Reiki energy work for fertility, pregnancy, and birth or postpartum, Doula support or through breastfeeding and childbirth education. I will work passionately to provide my clients and other Doulas with evidence based education and empowering, non-judgmental support through their entire journey.
Trusting your body. Trusting your instincts. It's your journey.
MyDoula+ Promise to you
My main focus is to be there to support you and your family every step of the way, through every decision and process during the services I provide for your family, whether that be Reiki Treatments, Fertility support, Doula support or Breastfeeding support. I want everyone during their journey to be able to look back and have positive, happy memories, feeling empowered and knowing that you were supported in every way.
I will be there to help educate you in making informed decisions, and support your decisions when you make them. I will provide emotional space and support for you to release without judgement and advanced comfort measures to assist you in having the birth you desire.
You will know whats right for you and your family. Trust your body. Trust your instincts.
We will bond together to make sure you are as comfortable as you can be, feeling supported and empowered throughout your journey into parenthood!
