I provide continuous physical, emotional and evidence based information support to women and their families through pregnancy, labour and postpartum.
I see birth as a life changing, natural event in the lives of many women. Childbirth can be a strengthening experience, one where women become empowered and build their self-esteem through positive birth experiences, having long lasting effects on herself as an individual and her growing family. As each woman is unique, so is their birthing experience unique. I will help you get the information you need to make informed decisions and support you through any of your choices. Every circumstance can lead to positive birth experiences.
Bringing a new baby home is a time for many adjustments. I support you as you make this transition, offering evidence based information and resources on babycare and infant feeding.
I am a certified Birth Doula through DONA International, certified Childbirth Educator through CAPPA, and certified in HypnoBirthing Support Techniques for Birth Professionals through HypnoBirthing Institute®:The Mongan Method. I have been trained in Acupressure for Birth and Rebozzo techniques.
As an educator, I strive to instill confidence in birthing people through evidence based information in pregnancy, childbirth and early childcare. A background in dance has led to a deep understanding of the physical aspects of birth and a hands on approach to labour support.
I have a wealth of experience through over 27 years assisting women with breastfeeding and as a doula. I support women and their families in Toronto hospitals, The Birth Centre and homes and continue to be fascinated by the birth process.
My goal is to help you achieve a positive birth experience.
