Our Volunteer Regional Representatives

Kirstin Kennedy


A Certified Labour & Birth Doula and Mother to 3 wonderful kids, Kirstin lives in Niagara on the Lake and supports the entire Niagara Region. A trained Doula since November 2014 with the Healing Arts Learning Organization (which is now known as Doula Training Canada) and completed certification in September 2016. Bringing to the table a wealth of experience as a former Registered Nurse working mostly in Public Health. 
Working with growing families has been a dream of Kirstins since she was quite young and she has a strong passion in supporting the ever growing Doula profession. Very excited to be the AOD's regional representative for Niagara and to offer support to other Doulas in her area. 


Annie Scott

Annie has spent the past 8 years providing doula services, childbirth education, hypnobirthing classes and breastfeeding support to hundreds of families in the GTA and has now begun servicing the Simcoe/Muskoka area. While supporting parents and actively being a parent herself, she is writing and learning about her passion, the world of birth and parenting. She is an active blogger and she has been featured as guest expert by Today’s Parent and other online birth blogs. She has recently started mentoring doulas in the business aspects of the profession due to her previous life in business development and conducts workshops and one on one support to doulas looking to improve their practice.
