I am a perinatal nurse clinician, international board certified lactation consultant, and DONA International certified birth doula with a passion for women's health.
My practice focusses on empowering parents through evidence-based childbirth education, facilitating informed-decision making and promoting evidence-based practice in maternity care.
Why Choose BirthWise?
You get the best of both worlds
As both a doula and a nurse clinician, I have the advantage of seeing pregnancy and birth from many perspectives. I can help you navigate the healthcare system and facilitate open communication between you and the clinical staff. This open communication will allow you to have an empowering experience where you are well informed and involved in making decisions about your birth experience.
I am a registered nurse clinician, licensed in both Quebec and Ontario.
I am an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC).
I keep my CPR certification up to date with the Canadian Red Cross.
I completed my birth doula certification with DONA International, the international leader in evidence-based doula training, certification and continuing education!
