It was fall 2015 and I had just begun my doula journey. I had 2 small kids at home and had just returned back to work after a maternity leave. You see my desire to support women and families in the most vulnerable of times was nothing new for me. It was a very natural transition as I have spent the past 12 years working with a local Edmonton not for profit agency working alongside Child and Family Services. 

Working in a career where you meet people where they are at, and provide options and support to guide them towards their best future, is a lot like doula work. Having a clear end goal and working out how to get there in the safest, most empowered  ways possible, even when obstacles arise is an expectant families best wishes.  I have a well rounded scope of understanding in the following areas: brain development, trauma, mental health, community resources, culture and addictions to list a few as I have received additional training through my not for profit career in Edmonton.


In the past 3 years since I began to "doula" we have welcomed two more children to our family. For a grand total of 4 children (3 boys and 1 girl)!  We have had 3 hospital births and one home water birth. I have continued to expand on my doula knowledge base by continuing my education to best be able to work with you and your family. It started with a strong calling to learn about the placenta and continued to grow to another birth doula and postpartum doula certificate, Childbirth education training,rebozo training, TENs training and When Survivors Give Birth training. I have expanded on my lending library and have over 100 books to lend to our clients on topics from fertility, pregnancy, birth, infant sleep, breastfeeding, postpartum, early parenting and more!!


Through my own pregnancy journey and my calling to the doula world, a few things have become so clear to me. That is why, as a doula, I always strive to provide you with the emotional support that every family needs during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. For expectant parents like you, this chapter of your life is big! You matter and your experience is important! You deserve to be heard, you deserve to be respected, you deserve to be valued, you deserve to feel safe and treated with kindness and genuiness. And that......that is what you will get upon booking with Edmonton's own Down to Earth Birth Services.
