I have been a certified postpartum doula for the last 6 years and have looked after over 50 families in the Toronto and GTA. I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing families. Helping them transition to parenthood. I have helped parents with twins and singletons, breastfeeding and formula feeding.
Previously worked as a nurse practitioner and a registered midwife in England, having 19 years of experience as a nurse and a midwife in England, form 1989-2009. Currently a certified postpartum doula and certified childbirth educator. Passionate about breastfeeding and women health. Am working towards my New Parent Educator certification
I have also recently become a Postpartum Doula Faculty Member and am excited to be offering postpartum doula trainings in the future in Ontario, Canada.
Wanting women and their families to have that little extra help and support to make transition into parenthood a pleasant one, making a difference in what is to be a wonderful journey through life.
