I am engaging clients in creative childbirth (prenatal) education classes, offering postpartum doula services and seeking to awake women to the power of their bodies and minds as well as support and nurture families in the transition to parenting. My classes are evidence-based and intuitive-nurturing, incorporating the six Lamaze care practices (link: http://www.lamaze.org/p/cm/ld/fid=198) with philosophies from Birthing from Within (link: https://www.birthingfromwithin.com/pages/our-mission) I have completed training as a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator and maintain this through on-going education. I have also completed my training as birth doula through DONA, and as an Registered Nurse, I have regular police record checks and my CPR is always up to date. I have worked with women and families prenatally as a RN, a birth doula and educator since 2010. More recently, (April 2016), I completed my training as a postpartum doula (DONA), and am working toward this certification through helping women, infants and their families make a smooth transition to mothers, siblings and parents. As the mother of three vibrant and beautiful children, I have been challenged in my beliefs about parenting practices and infant temperament after each birth. Subsequently, each postpartum experience has presented unique joys and challenges, and I have appreciated the presence and support of myriad friends, neighbours, community and healthcare professionals. I hope to offer this nurturing and solidarity to the women and families I serve. I have loved attending the births of many women, and watching the gratification on their faces after all the hard work. I believe in women, in their power, ability to nurture and to be resourceful and flexible and love to see the transition from pregnancy to parenting. In my spare time, I love to camp, spend time at the beach, read, tinker in the garden, create something by knitting or baking, or adventure out on my bike with kids in tow
