I am a perinatal nurse clinician and a DONA International certified birth doula with a passion for women's health. My practice is focused on empowering birth through informed-decision making and promoting evidence-based practice for birth.
As a professional DONA International certified birth doula, I will work by your side as you prepare to give birth; present in each moment with a spirit of love and compassion, ensuring that you feel safe and cared for every step of the way. Whether you are interested in a prenatal class, or would like to work with me as your doula, I’ll provide the emotional, informational and physical support you need not only during labour, but throughout your pregnancy and postpartum as well.
