The birth of my son in 2017 was planned to be a beautiful experience; however, life had an alternative route for me and instead showed me how strong and adaptable I was.
Instead, we faced an emergency and needed to have a non-elected caesarean birth. I had suffered both from postpartum depression, and post traumatic stress disorder because of this turn of events , showing me some of the darkest places I didn’t know I could face. Yet, with help from my own doula, birth professionals, friends, family, and self care, I was brought out of the other side of postpartum to an unbelievably beautiful relationship with my son and myself.
Navigating through both the complications of our birth story, and struggles of postpartum it was like a labyrinth, coming out a changed woman. It was then, I realized how thankful I was for the care I had received from my own doula and birth professionals and I knew I was being called to become a birth worker.
In June of 2020 I delivered my second child during the covid pandemic, again learning so much from the greatest teacher I could be blessed with, my daughter.
Before becoming a mother and doula, I was a Child Development Specialist for almost twenty years.
I had trained under some of the greatest mentors, and earned my Early Development Education from MacEwan University. This work earned me an award from the Government of Alberta.
I am a certified yoga teacher specializing in prenatal and postpartum yoga, parented yoga and mindfulness coaching. I am a Postpartum doula with CAPPA, a Trauma informed birth doula under the mentorship of Jennifer Summerfeldt and have training in Spinning Babies®.
I am currently enrolled as a Birthing from Within® Birth Mentor and Doula, taking clients to help me certify and gain experience in the field.
I am an incredibly passionate person, who loves art and being creative. I love being around my pets, my children and my husband. I enjoy spending time in the mountains and river valley, listening to and reading books, and swimming.
