Being born and raised in the Kootenays, I am passionate about fostering healthy communities and families here to make our home an even better place to live. I believe that healthy families start at birth and all new mothers and their partners should have the support they need to welcome their child safely into this world.
I have always been fascinated by birth ; the sacred cycle of the female body that allows us to create new human life. It is an absolutely unique experience that should allow every woman to feel empowered and strong while she is surrounded by the comfort of loved ones and the aid of experienced professionals.
Birth is not a medical condition, but a completely natural process that the female body is designed to cope with if she is prepared to do so. However you choose to give birth, each mother has the right to go through this experience on her own terms and have her needs respected and met while in labour.
As a doula, I act as a support system to women and their partners making sure they are both prepared for the intensity of birth by giving them all the tools and information to remain in control during the process. It is important for me to get to know the preferences and concerns of each couple and get to explore your birth plan so I understand how to best assist you.
My main aims are to remain as a constant support system, helping the mother make conscious choices and to offer options and information in the case of intervention. I will be there to provide constant comfort measures throughout the various stages of labour and making sure the mother is honouring her body and mind throughout the whole process.
I offer natural remedies for pain and discomfort through prenatal massage, deep breathing techniques to calm the nerves, meditation practices for focus and yoga postures to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles which are used for pushing.
I look forward to getting to know you soon and guiding you through each step on this beautiful and special path in your life.
