I have always been interested in supporting families during pregnancy and birth. I enjoy serving families of all types and configurations. I have a client-centered practice and aim to meet people where they are in life. I pride myself on creating a calm, stable and dependable support for you and your family.
After having 3 children, I was strongly compelled to follow my dream. While successfully running a home daycare, I began my certification with Doula Training Canada as a Birth Doula. Furthering my desire to provide holistic support for families, I continued my training with Holding Space for Pregnancy Loss as well as Belly Binding – an ancient way of wrapping the postpartum mother’s abdomen as an effective and important part of recovery from childbirth. I furthered my training, with Doula Training Canada, to also care for parents after birth as a Postpartum Doula. I have since become a Trainer with Doula Canada, helping to grow the doula community in Canada. I also sit on the board of the Nova Scotia Doula Association . I am a certified VBAC doula through The VBAC Link. Through Childbirth International I am certifying as a Lactation Counselor, supporting families with feeding issues and concerns.
I provide stable, dependable and supportive doula support in Halifax and surrounding areas, helping you and your partner or family as you go through the birth process. I will support you and help you get the most from your birth experience by uplifting, validating, encouraging, and providing a continuous presence.
I am a partner and a mother to three wonderfully unique children in the Halifax, Nova Scotia area. Coming from Newfoundland, I love to be near the water, spending time with my family and eating great food!
