Barrie has had the privilege to work with birthing and postpartum families since 2006, touching the lives of hundreds of families. In addition to being a certified Birthing From Within Mentor and trained Birth Story Listener, she is also an Internationally Certified Childbirth Educator and Certified Birth Doula. She offers group and private childbirth preparation classes, birth story listening sessions and private birth art instruction. She has also presented on Birth Story Listening topics at a number of professional conferences and events. What she most values about Birthing From Within is the opportunity to Mentor parents in connecting with their own inner wisdom and knowing.
Barrie discovered Birthing From Within during her first pregnancy in 2004, and connected with it’s ability to foster self acceptance and compassion while at the same time providing all the practical tools she would need to prepare for birth and parenthood. She used the tools she learned throughout both of her pregnancies, births and postpartum experiences. She continues using the tools of self reflection, solution focused thinking, mindfulness, and creative expression, gained through Birthing From Within, in her parenting and in her personal growth work.
In her free time Barrie enjoys making art, knitting, reading and dance. She is a wife and mother of two boys.
