I feel that every family can benefit from a having a postpartum doulas support during those first few weeks as a new family. I take great pride in supporting families “where they are at” and in their decisions about their parenting style. As your postpartum doula, I will provide you with the support, confidence, and care you need during your postpartum experience that will allow you to create a special bond with your new little one.
My background in these areas includes:
- A diploma in Early Childhood Education from Holland College (1998)
- A Bachelor of Applied Arts in Child & Youth Studies from MSVU (2014)
- Certified Birth Doula, DONA International (2008)
- Certified Postpartum Doula, DONA International (2014)
- Certified Lamaze Childbirth Education (2017)
As a postpartum doula, I have had the privilege of witnessing not only the births of many beautiful babies, but also the creation of new families. I believe that every mother and family deserves unconditional emotional, physical, and helping hands support throughout their early weeks as a new family. I help and encourage mothers to find their mothering instinct, build their confidence leading to a joyous and enjoyable postpartum experience.
