Birth Doulas - Working Toward Certification and Non-Certified
Many of us are working toward DONA certification. We've completed the initial training and are at various stages in the certification process. One part of this process includes submitting evaluations from births that we have attended as doulas, so we are very eager for the experience, and many are offering services at reduced rates while we gain this experience.
There are also some of us who are not interested in completing the certification process, but have taken the DONA training and have varying levels of experience in birth support.
Please feel welcome to contact any of us to find out more!

I am the mother to 6 beautiful children (5 whom I delivered and 1 step daughter). I am a professional photographer, with a passion for photographing pregnancy, birth and babies. When a friend asked me to photograph her birth, I was beyond thrilled and honored to be invited into such an intimate occasion. While researching birth photography, I found that many birth photographers were also doulas. Right then I knew that becoming a doula was my calling to support women and their families during pregnancy and birth as well as create a beautiful birth experience.

My journey to becoming a birth doula began at a very early age as I have always been fascinated by pregnancy and birth. In recent years, I've had the honour of attending the births of friends and family members (as well as my own) which has made a tremendous impact on my desire and passion to pursue this role. In May 2016, I began my training with DONA International and I am currently working towards my official certification. Each birth story is unique, and as your doula I will help you navigate yours.

I have a great interest in birth and creating a community around it locally and personally. I come from a large family that has passed on to me a great confidence in women and the birthing process. I am constantly seeking new insights into birth and family life. My philosophy is to care and assist , with all the knowledge and experience that has be passed down to me. I believe that to truly care, one must listen and be perceptive. I endeavour to deeply connect with the women and families I serve. Each family's journey to birth is diverse, and it is my honour to take part on the voyages of change.
