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!

When we decided to hire a doula, we were told to interview a few to get a feel for who we would be most comfortable with. Kim was the first and last doula we met - an instant "yes"...it felt we'd been friends for years. She's been there for us whenever we've needed support and was an absolute rockstar during labour and delivery. Shawn and Kim were like a well-oiled machine together, my water glass was never empty, and she brought a sense of humor and calm to our room. She even came over and made us waffles once we were home from the hospital and snuggled our William . We would not hesitate recommending Kim to anyone looking for an amazing (and important) part of their birthing team.

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.

Friends in Real Life: You Deserve Them

My husband and I just had a fantastic dinner party and hang-out with some good friends of ours. I made sous-vide pork tenderloin with rosemary and apples, which we ate just before launching into a tactical game of Ticket To Ride all the while sharing inside jokes and... read more
