"Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life." ~ Ina May Gaskin ~
~ Samantha Hansen ~
Strong, Adventurous, Leader
I'm Sam Hansen; I am down-to-earth, caring, and a go-getter. I think on my feet and rise up to the challenges life throws my way. I am curious by nature and love discovering new things about myself, and the world around me. I march to the beat of my own drum and challenge the status quo. Originally an island girl (P.E.I. that is!) I have been calling Nelson home for three years and absolutely love the Kootenays. In my spare time, I love to snowboard, hike and climb with my husband and our fur baby. I also enjoy being cozy and reading by the woodstove or relaxing at hot springs.
In terms of education, I have a B.Sc. in Biology, from St. Francis Xavier University. St. FX is one of Canada's top undergraduate universities and prides itself in creating world leaders. I received my Holistic Doula training from North America's most comprehensive program at Pacific Rim College in Victoria, B.C. The program only accepts 14 students per program and is highly extensive. My education gave me the skills and confidence to pursue my career as a Holistic Doula. I became a Holistic Doula because it is a life calling to help mothers and babies come into this world with sincere love and support. I am grateful to have listened to my inner truth and honoured to support birthing people, their partners and babies through a pivotal point in life. In conjunction with birth support, I am pleased to be offering postpartum and overnight support to families and newborns to help the transition into parenthood.
