Hi, I'm Kim!

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.


I look forward to getting to know you and your family.

About Me

So, How Does This Work?

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? When do we meet and for how long? What does a doula even do, exactly, and how is having one beneficial?

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 informed decisions. I also think it’s crucial to get a feel 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? You’ll find tons of information in my blog.

Take a Peek

We hired Kim to assist with the birth of our first baby. Kim was exceptionally helpful both at the birth as well as the prenatal and postpartum support she offers. We highly recommend hiring her if you are interested or needing some extra support for your pregnancy.

My wife and I hired Kim for the birth of our daughter. To be perfectly honest, at that time I really had no idea what a doula did. I now know that the answer to that, at least in Kim's case, is everything you could possibly want, and a lot of things you didn't even know you needed, but most assuredly did. Kim is one of those very rare people who is impossible not to like. She is incredibly warm and genuine, and you can't help but feel comfortable with her right from the moment you meet her. Although we were also very impressed with Kim's considerable knowledge and expertise, it was this comfort level that would prove to be utterly invaluable. The birth did not end up going the way that we had hoped, and I honestly don't know how we would have gotten through it without her. She very calmly got my wife through the worst of it all, and was there to support the sobbing wreck that was me when our beautiful daughter was immediately whisked away to the NICU. Whether your birth goes as you had hoped or not, if you should choose to hire Kim, I can very confidently say that when all is said and done you will not be able to imagine what it would have been like without her, or at the very least you would not want to. Kim will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we will always be thankful for her role in helping deliver little Olivia safely to us.

Your Nanaimo Doula

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.

The Most Versatile Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

No, it’s not pumpkin spice. It seems like everyone has pumpkin pie spice in their cupboard except me, but every time I try to remember to buy it, I forget! And I have all the individual spices that go into it, so if I REALLY need pumpkin pie spice, I mix it. I... read more

What the *$@! is a Rebozo?

If you’re a client of mine, you likely have heard the word “rebozo”. No, this is not someone who repetitively does stupid things (get it? Repeat-bozo? Rebozo? Oh man…) It’s actually a long piece of woven material traditionally used in... read more
