Professional Birth Coach
Don't let your birth experience be stolen because you were afraid.
Doula Hands can help
For as long as I can remember, like most little girls, I was obsessed with babies. As I got older and more aware of the pregnancy process I became in awe of the amazing abilities the woman's body is capable of. Just the sight of a pregnant woman gave me pride in being a woman myself.
The first birth I attended was the birth of my niece in 2003 which awakened a new and overwhelmingly strong desire to make birth somehow apart of my life. Ever since, I've attended many births as a helper and friend. At the time I did not know what a doula was or that I was already learning to be one. But I did believe this was a natural place for me to be. Over the years I heard more about this line of work but didn't know how to fit it into my existing life style. In 2013, after a life-changing experience, I re-examined my life. Finally in January 2015 I got my DONA Birth Doula training at Douglas College.
I am currently working with South Community Birth Program (www.scbp.ca) which has given me many opportunities to learn from more experiencned Doulas and gained much more hands on experiences of my own. I used to work outside of being a doula but I've decided to continue my education in this line of work. In the Fall of 2016 I completed a Breastfeeding workshop in order to be of assistance to moms and babies after the delivery. In February 2017 I started taking the Cultural Doula Program (CDP) which is a year long program lead by Gena Kirby and many other amazing and highly trained individuals which further enriches my skills and knowledge.
I never imagined that one day I would be fulfilling my life-long dream of being involved in the beautiful beginnings of life and love.
