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?

Grab A Tea And Settle In

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 as our doula for our second child and couldn't have been more pleased. Our initial meeting laid out expectations of everybody throughout the birth. During the birth she assisted wherever she was needed, even bringing snacks and drinks! I would absolutely recommend Kim to anybody who is considering having a doula. And for those who don't have a doula, get on board and get one!

Meeting Kim and her becoming my doula was a true blessing in my life. Through conversation, advice, practical tips and support I believe that I went into labour naturally because of my interactions with Kim. She helped put me in a positive frame of mind. When Kim arrived at my home she was well prepared, knowledgeable, and had a variety of tools to help me manage my pain. Some of the techniques she had were truly amazing as the pain would subside immediately. She was there for me moment to moment throughout labour. In the short time I have known Kim I have no doubt about the skill and kindness she provides in her services as a doula. I would recommend Kim's services to any pregnant mother without hesitation. Thank you Kim for a wonderful labour!

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.

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
