Birth Doula Services
In addition to massage therapy, I also welcome a small number of doula clients each year. A doula is someone who provides physical and emotional support, as well as education, to a birthing person and their family, if applicable. Typically, a doula provides support during the prenatal period, continuously during the birth process, and in the early postpartum period.
My own two children were both born at home under the care of midwives, and I just loved my experiences. After my second was born, I knew our family was complete, but it wasn't long before I felt a strong desire to provide birth support to others. Near the end of 2017, I attended my first birth, and I was hooked. I went on to complete my doula training through Wise Woman Way of Birth in February 2018, and really enjoyed learning and sharing alongside like-minded individuals. I actually attended my first homebirth just hours after receiving my certificate!
While I do have a special place in my heart for homebirths, I'm happy to attend hospital births, as well. I prefer to stay within Mission and Abbotsford.
I aim to provide compassionate, personalized, care and believe strongly in providing clients with evidence-based information so that they may make informed choices. I believe women are strong, and when left to follow their instincts, can birth their babies safely and effectively.
