As a Doula, with a degree in psychology and a Master’s degree in marriage and family counseling, my goal is to ensure you are heard, informed, and supported throughout your pregnancy and birth. You will be HEARD in a non-judgemental environment as I listen to you and your partner’s questions, concerns to help you make INFORMED decisions that are right for your family. You will be SUPPORTED with a calming presence and relaxation and comfort techniques tailored to your personal needs. Ultimately, through my faith based practice, I strive to build your confidence and trust in your body’s ability to birth while facilitating effective communication with your birth team. By unconditionally providing these 3 basic needs of being heard, informed and supported, I can help you create a positive birth story to forever cherish and share. Please contact me for more information or a complimentary meet and greet. I would be honored to support you in creating the memorable birth experience you deserve.

As a doula with a professional background in social work and counselling, I help parents to feel more confident, supported, and less stressed about this big journey of welcoming a new baby.
During pregnancy I work with women who might have worries or fear about their upcoming birth, or who have experienced a previous difficult or traumatic birth. I work with parents who want to prepare for their birth as the major milestone and rite of passage that it is, and who want to feel fully supported and open to facing the unknown with courage and love.
After the birth I help nurture new parents to feel confident and connected to their baby and their intuition. For new mothers I offer nourishing postpartum meals, brief massage, breastfeeding support and newborn settling. I also provide birth debriefing and professional counselling to support parents to make sense of challenging or traumatic birth experiences.
Services include: women’s circles, prenatal counselling; childbirth education; belly art & henna; mother & baby blessing ceremonies; birth doula support is limited to a few families per year; postnatal doula support; professional birth debriefing and postnatal counselling. Support and counselling for mothers experiencing prenatal or postnatal depression and anxiety
