Seven years ago, my best friends invited me to be at their first birth. Soon after, another friend asked and so I went on to study the Doula program at Douglas College in Vancouver. Happily, I have continued to assist births at home and in hospital, in a variety of ways including water births and twin births, each incredible, each unique. Forever in awe at the human body’s potential to transform during childbirth, I am called to bring this unshakable trust to each birth. As a teacher of Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga, I can offer guidance in safe and effective body movements and breathing and sound, into the work of labour. I am inspired, and continue to study from the “Birthing From Within” approach to childbirth. I am also a Certified Thai Massage Practitioner, offering steady hands on contact as needed. I draw on knowledge of appropriate pressure points to ease pain and relax tension. These treatments are especially good during the last months of pregnancy, labour and post partum.
