It is my honour and privilege to support birthing families.

It is my honour and privilege to provide support to birthing families in the Edmonton area. I have always been passionate about pregnancy and birth.  

I believe that birth can and should be an empowering experience. My goal is to offer birthing persons the resources and support they need in order to make the best choices for themselves, their families and their babies. No two births are ever the same—we are all unique. Your choices in childbirth should be your own, and come from a place of confidence and not fear. It is my greatest hope that, no matter the outcome of your birth, you will remember that you had a voice, you felt safe & supported, and you did what felt right for you! I am never done learning, and I look forward to any opportunity where I am able to learn new skills and techniques to best support you during pregnancy and birth.

I am proud to provide inclusive, trauma-informed care.

I completed my doula training and certification with DONA in 2018.  In 2020, I completed training and certification as a Holistic Doula with The Matrona.

I am a Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner, and a Certified Reiki Level 1 & 2 Practitioner.

 

In addition to birth work, I am also a registered social worker. I have many years of experience supporting children, families and victims of family violence. It brings me great joy to see families grow and achieve their full potential.

I live in Edmonton with my wife, our dog and our son, born in 2021. I love working as a doula! Witnessing birth is special and sacred, every time. 

I would like to acknowledge that I am living on Treaty 6 Territory, and I respect the histories, languages and cultures of First Nations, Metis and Inuit people who first called this country home.
