Birth Doula in Mountain View County
I am the proud mother of 3 beautiful sons. Their personalities are as individual as their births were but they are certainly three things that I got right! Nearly 30yrs ago, my first birth as a naïve uncertain young mom could not have been less satisfying or more traumatic. For 2 months following I struggled with depression and a colicky baby in a time where there was little support for new Momma’s. My two subsequent births were midwife supported waterbirths and drastically different in that I was empowered and supported in my ability to carry and bring my babies into the world naturally. Both were far more content babies and I avoided the awful postpartum depression.
Since then, I have advocated for the need of knowledgeable support through pregnancy & the birth process for women, partners and families. I feel strongly that pregnancy, birthing and the postpartum period are personal life changing events, an intensely intimate and magical time requiring confident knowledge, support and encouragement; making your experience right for you and your baby.
Recently I left a very unsatisfying business career to follow my heart’s passion of helping. As a devoted, passionate mother and woman I sincerely believe that each birthing event is a unique and profound experience. I strongly believe in empowering Momma, your partner, and family through this miraculous experience. I would be honoured to provide you with guidance and support through your journey of individual uniqueness. Just as we differ, so does each birth, my focus as your Doula will be to provide you with the knowledge to be confident in the decisions you and your partner make surrounding your birth wishes and unwavering support as you bring your baby from womb to arms.
Both the Reiki and Quantum Touch modalities inspire a sense of calm, peace and over all well-being. I would be honored to support you through a gratifying birth experience.
