I am unsure where my interest, love and respect for birth came from however I do know it has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. I truly believe birth is a beautiful and natural process, a women's body is wise and capable of birthing when she feels safe, secure and supported.
I am the proud mother of 2 beautiful boys, a DONA trained doula and a yoga teacher. Over the last 4 years I have had the pleasure of teacher pre-natal yoga to many expectant mothers. This training is something I am able to bring into the birth setting to assist mothers find the best positions for them and their babies.
Through my own birth journeys I have learned first hand the power of a women's birth story. The experience a women has during labour and birth is something she will never forget, good or bad. It has the power to shape emotions and ability to bond after birth. A birth that fits a mothers desire and vision allows her and her partner to feel powerful, confident and strong.
It is such an honour and blessing to be a part of a women's birth story. To help a mom and dad feel that sense of accomplishment and confidence that comes with birth is an absolute joy.
