I feel so fortunate to be able to call this my job and am always honoured to have the opportunity to witness a birther walk their path.
I bring with me the experience of 9 years as a Birth Doula, having attended over 100 births, and I have been teaching prenatal classes for nearly a decade. Prior to that I obtained a degree in Child and Youth Care at The University of Victoria and a background in counselling. I have spent my entire career and most of my life surrounded by, working with, and supporting women, children and families. It is no surprise that I have ended up here, in birth work, following paths which I feel strongly, are my calling.
The most impact-full experiences of my life to lead me here were the births of both my sons. I was lucky to have a midwife for both births and a wonderful doula for my last, which helped give me and my husband the confidence to have the home birth we wanted.
Pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum time are all unique experiences that can each benefit from unique forms of support. I believe that birth is a natural process and that we already have the power, strength, and intuitive wisdom necessary to birth our babies. I also believe in the powerful act of gathering and employing a village of support to help guide you on your way through this transformational time. I have seen first hand how much of a positive impact these supports can have, not just during pregnancy and birth, but throughout a person’s life. Whether you are an experienced birther, or this is your first time, my goal is to provide the resources, care, and support you and your partner (if applicable) need, to be able to navigate through whatever comes your way.
I reside in British Columbia and am a settler on the traditional and stolen lands of the Musqueam people and the shared territory of the sc̓əwaθenaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsawwassen) and all the Halkomelem speaking people. Serving clients in Delta, Surrey, White Rock, and Richmond.
Thanks for being here!
