Welcome! You’ve just found a great Nanaimo doula serving the mid-island communities. My practice is centered around a strong desire to reflect back the strength I see in every birthing person, regardless of how they choose to bring their baby into the world. I bring calmness, evidence-based resources, and a great sense of humour to the births I have the honour of attending.
Whether you’re looking for a birth and postpartum doula in Nanaimo or you’re just interested in birth in general, I invite you to scroll down or click below for more information about me and how we work together. I look forward to getting to know you.
Let’s talk about how this whole “doula thing” goes down. What can you expect from me? How do I make sure partners feel included in the birth and postpartum period? When do we meet before and after, and for how long? Does a doula work with doctors, midwives, or both? What does a doula even do, exactly, and how does she improve outcomes?
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Click below for the answers to these questions and more about what I offer and how it all plays out over the span of your pregnancy and birth.
Knowledge is power! One of the central roles of a doula is to provide access to reliable information and resources so that parents can make their own informed decisions. I also think it’s crucial to have a deep knowledge of who your doula is as a person. Because how else are you going to determine whether or not you really want her at your birth?
I’ve put together some great resources on my blog to give my clients and other doula-curious people access to useful, entertaining, and interesting information. Make yourself a cuppa and head on over. It should also give you a bit of an idea of my personality, so you’ll have the low-down on me before we even meet!
It doesn’t matter whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert; a first-timer or an old pro; a home-birther or hospital-oriented. What matters is that you’re supported. Here’s how I see my role on your birth team.
I just met you and I love you! Ok, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch. But I do think it’s pretty cool that you’re on my site and I want to thank you for visiting by giving you access to a resource page I’ve put together.
