About

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.

I have a wealth of experience through over 25 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.
