I am so glad you have found me. Having a baby is life changing. I know this from personal experience, and these experiences are what led me down this beautiful road! As wonderful as pregnancy, birth and new baby can be, it can also be really tough. If you want to know a little bit more about me...
I am passionate about providing women with the support they need to enjoy the birth they want. Helping to guide them as they ease into parenthood with peace and joy. I take pride in educating and empowering women to really make informed choices when it comes to their birth. I love to raise newborn mothers up surrounded by support and love and send them off with the confidence to parent in a way that feels right for them. A doula can be like your favourite coach on the field, guiding you, teaching you and cheering you on. I started my journey to become a Maternal Support Practitioner when my youngest daughter was around 6 months old. With the MSP (doula) program well under way, and what felt like perfect timing, it only seemed natural to add infant sleep education, breastfeeding support and HypnoBirthing® Practitioner to my qualifications. With all of these qualifications under my hat I set out to build a practice grounded in Encouragement, Education and Empowerment for women and their family's to thrive in this time of momentous change. It is truly an honour to be a part of that.
My passion for birth work coincides with my passion for yoga. I am a yoga exercise specialist with special certification in prenatal and postnatal yoga, kids yoga, breathing techniques and guided meditation for relaxation.
My goal is to encourage and educate in a way that enables women to have a calm, safe and gentle birthing experience, a joyous and healthy postpartum period and a wonderful take off into parenthood.
I was born and raised in Cobourg, ON and currently reside 20 minutes north of there on Rice Lake with my little family of 5.
