Student Birth Doula: "I grew up in a family where birth was deeply honoured and the intuitive wisdom of women celebrated. At the age of nine, I was present for the birth of my younger brother, who was born in water in our living room. I witnessed the power and confidence of my mother, trusting in her body’s wisdom as she birthed. Even at such a young age, this was a profound experience –  a wellspring in which I found an inner knowing and deep trust of the birthing process.

As I move through life, I am called to women’s work and feel a remembering of a time when women gathered and supported each other through the transitions of life. I believe that pregnancy and birth are truly sacred– a rites of passage and transformation that is so often overlooked in our society. I am passionate about holding space for women and their loved ones as they navigate this journey. My intention is always to bring an open heart and presence to my work.  To be able to hold and explore all that arises and facilitate informed and empowered decision making.

My belief is that every woman holds inside her the strength and wisdom to birth her baby. My support as a Doula will always be led by, and work in close connection with the Mother’s intuition. My hope for every woman is not that they birth in a specific way, but that they are able to birth feeling empowered, heard, safe and supported. To be able to step into motherhood with an embodied knowing of their true power and beauty.

Just as everyone of us is different, so is every birth. I welcome the diversity of every person, couple and their situation. I am here to support you, through your birthing experience".
