Birth Doula | Childbirth Educator | Reflexologist

Even as I child I was fascinated by pregnant women and babies. As I grew older I was amazed with the many wonderful things a human body is capable of doing.

I got started in this field because of the wonderful care I received with my first pregnancy. It wasn't until a few years later when some of my family members had given birth and were relating their birth stories that I noticed there was something missing. There was no encouragement, or support. They felt they had no choices in their births or pregnancies and were not respected. It was then that I realized that something had to be done about this.

Shortly after, the word Doula appeared almost out of the air and that was all it took. Since then I have devoted my time to helping pregnant people and their partners become empowered and confident parents.

I am a Birth and Bereavement Doula, Cesarean and VBAC Support Specialist, Childbirth Educator, reflexologist, a mother of two wonderful girls, a wife, and a fitness and outdoors enthusiast living in Burlington. Pregnancy and birth are incredible learning experiences. I feel very blessed to be working in a field I feel so passionate about. I also feel very honoured to be invited into such a special and unique time in someone’s life to help them have the most rewarding, enriching experience possible. I look forward to helping you make your “Birth Beginnings” a bright and positive one that you will cherish forever.
