11 years ago I accomplished the most transformative and empowering thing of my life, I gave birth to my daughter naturally in my own home. Three and a half years later I was fortunate enough to do it all over again with the birth of my son. Since that time I have been in awe of the beauty, strength and inspiring nature of pregnancy and birth. Now I am lucky enough to help others create their own unique birth story helping them to navigate the twists and turns of this magical time.
The support I offer couples is unique due to my other passions; yoga, Ayurveda, massage and herbology. I have been teaching yoga for over 17 years, which has given me a broad and holistic way of viewing the body . I began teaching prenatal yoga while I was pregnant with my daughter in 2005 and began teaching post natal mum and baby classes shortly after she was born in 2006. Since that time I have completed a two year practitioner program in Ayurveda and over 1500 hrs in this natural form of healing and body work. I offer prenatal and post natal massage and diet and herbal support when needed. I am currently studying massage and working towards my Registered Massage Therapy. I hope to specialize in pregnancy and infant care once I am finished. I am also very interested in herbology and I have cultivated and used wild crafted herbs for many years.
My fee for service is based on a sliding scale of $450-$750 depending on financial ability. This fee includes:
2-3 prenatal visits
Continuous Birth and labour support
Continuous phone support starting one month before due date
2-3 Post natal visits
Breast feeding support from birth onwards

Post partum Tea
Discount on Prenatal Massage sessions 75 min for $60)
I have attended home and hospital births with both the Kootenay Community Midwives and with local Doctors. I am equally comfortable in both settings and strive to make your wishes a reality knowing that birth can be an empowering experience for every woman and couple.
