I am a certified Birth and Postpartum Doula with both Doula Canada and DONA International, as well as a doula instructor and trainer. I offer both private one-on-one and group Birthing From Within classes, as well as one-on-one online options for those outside of the city. With a Masters in Social Work, I also have a private counselling practice with a focus on perinatal issues such as birth trauma, postpartum mood disorders, perinatal loss, and fertility issues. I am a trained Birth Story Listener through Birthing From Within. My approach to childbirth preparation is non-outcome focused with the intention of preparing my clients for every possible birth scenario. I strive to provide coping practices and open dialogue that enable clients to hopefully embrace every birth journey as a rite of passage.
