Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear.

FULL SPECTRUM DOULA

BIRTH and newborn PHOTOGRAPHER

HYPNOBIRTHING SUPPORT PRACTITIONER

SERVING TORONTo, DURHAM REGION, and PEEL REGION
(TORONTO, SCARBOROUGH, MARKHAM, NORTH YORK, PICKERING, AJAX, WHITBY, OSHAWA, mississauga, brampton, oakville)

 

I am a full spectrum doula who provides respect, love, and support throughout the entire childbearing spectrum, including pregnancy, birth, postpartum, loss, and termination.

I’m also a photographer and I’m super passionate about capturing the raw beauty of the birth experience, or those first moments with a new family.

 

My philosophy is simple: Every person, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual preference, has the right to make informed and evidence-based decisions about their reproductive, birth, and parenting choices, without judgement.

 

Why work with me?

I’ve been there.

I bring personal and professional experience to every family and every birth. I’ve had both a low-risk and high-risk pregnancy, midwifery and OB care, a vaginal birth and a cesarean section. I’ve experienced devastating loss and absolute joy. My experiences have made me honour, appreciate, and respect the birth process, and through it all I bring love, compassion, and a bit of humour to everything I do.

Are you looking for support but want to keep your birth space intimate?

I am now offering private childbirth education classes with access to me before, during, and after your birth, for whatever you need. Think of me as your “digital doula” - available for whatever you need, whenever you need it, but without the extra person in your birth space.

Or, have you experienced a loss and find yourself pregnant again?

I’ve been there too, and I can help you navigate all the highs and lows that a subsequent pregnancy can bring.

Feel free to look around, find out more about birthpostpartum, or loss services offered, or contact me to set up a time to chat.

I want to say a sincere thank you from our family for your care and help in the planning and birth of our daughter. Your guidance and wisdom was instrumental in a smooth and peaceful birth that was everything a mother could want.
