"We have a secret in our culture, and it is not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong"

I provide individualized care. I become acquainted with my client’s and their unique needs prenatally so that I can ensure that their needs are met during the birth experience. I give personal support to look at the client’s feelings around birth. I provide a listening ear to help navigate the emotions that are present for them. I help navigate the medical system in a way that best suits the client’s needs. I am trained and experienced in providing continual emotional support and physical comfort throughout labour. I want my client’s to have a safe, satisfying and empowering birth. I assist my client’s to access the recourses they need in the postpartum period. I help them remember, process, and share their experience. I love to document the birth experience with photos. I capture the story of birth, the small details and emotions, raw beautiful and moving.
I have been attending births since 2003. I began attending births as a friend and photographer. Then in 2013 I started my path as a Doula. I have been a DONA certified birth Doula since 2016. As a Doula I offer a selection of birth care packages. The main items included in all the packages are; before birth support, Doula on call 24/7 two weeks prior to due date till baby is born, continuous care for the duration of labour in a hospital or homebirth setting, and after birth support. I have a selection of photography options to choose from. I also have an Aqua Doula birth tub for rent.
