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.

Kim was very helpful and professional. Her friendly demeanor was great and she got our [placenta] pills to us so fast!

When I met Kim I knew little to nothing about doulas or what they did and hadn't even considered it as an option for my birth. Her kind heart, gentle mannerisms, and down to earth, positive personality drew me in and we just clicked. Kim makes her 'doula and soon to be mama' relationship feel like more than a business transaction. Having Kim as your doula is like having a best friend who happens to be a birthing guru!! She really went above and beyond in the final weeks to help me relax and progress, and in the final hours (24.5 of them I may add) she was more help and support than I could have imagined! That girl sure knows her pressure points hehe. She knew exactly what I needed and could anticipate what and when before I could even form a word to ask. Thank you so much for everything Kim, I truly couldn't have done it without you!!!

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.

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
