What Do I Offer?
I offer an approach to supporting my clients that enables them to access all of my talents, and resources.
You may be spending many hours with your doula in the same room and it will be a particularly vulnerable time for you. It is important that you choose a doula you feel very comfortable with.
Please browse the site and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
After our first interview, please call me if you have further questions, or if I can help you in any way to come to a decision. My goal is that you have the birth you want. I follow and believe in the mission statement set forward by CAPPA (http://www.cappacanada.ca/imagine_a_world.html)
My Training and Experience
I am wife, and mother of 4 children.
I started attending the births of friends in 1998, and then decided that I loved being with families during child birth, as well as helping them with breastfeeding. I really enjoyed helping them get into positions that made their experience better.In November 2005, I completed a basic training course through CAPPA. I then completed my certification. I have taken several weekend courses on herbs and homeopathy, as well as massage reflexology and other techniques that offer comfort measures. I am able to work with both obstetricians and midwives
I am also Breastfeeding Counselor, and Childbirth Educator. My services are available to families in the Windsor Essex County area. I am also able to travel to Amhurstburg and Leamington.
