Hello! Congratulations on your pregnancy!
I am a naturopathic doctor, a doula, a certified hypnotherapist and certified HypnoBirthing instructor. I’m enthusiastic in sharing my knowledge and experience with you during this very exciting and transformative time of your life. I provide health related services from bump to baby – Helping you staying healthy during your pregnancy, providing education and preparation for birth and providing ongoing support for you and your baby during your early days and weeks as a family.
I have 2 wonderful girls that were born at home, thanks to the HypnoBirthing program I learned while I was pregnant. My experience was such an empowering one that I decided I wanted to help other women have relaxed and confident births. I believe our current social attitudes and medical culture do not adequately prepare pregnant women to birth their babies – in fact we don’t even acknowledge how intelligent and powerful our bodies really are (I mean, you are growing another human being from your body, even while you are sleeping!). And perhaps like many of the moms I meet, you may have some fears or anxieties around labour and giving birth. I can help you overcome those fears so you can have a positive birth experience.
Like the hundreds of parents that I have taught over the last decade, HypnoBirthing is an effective program that can help you have an empowered, prepared, informed and confident birth experience. As a doula, I have supported many families in many different birth situations. I have been to home, hospital and birth centre births as well as inductions, c-sections and VBAC births and I work well with midwives, nurses and OB’s.
I am fully supported of your choices in birth and believe that birth should be centred around you, your baby and your family.
