Faculty: Teresa Maskery is a CAPPA Certified Labour / Postpartum Doula, and Childbirth / Lactation Educator. She has been serving clients across York Region since 2008 as the business owner of My Baby Bump and Stouffville Prenatal. Teresa holds a diploma in Early Childhood Education from St. Lawrence College in Kingston Ontario, and uses this combined skill set to support families through pregnancy, delivery, and parenting. Teresa’s passion to see women achieve their desired birth experience, extends beyond her business and into her volunteer role as a director on the board of the Markham Stouffville Crisis Pregnancy Centre. She became a doula because she believes there is a need for people to understand and experience labour and delivery rather than simply find a way to deal with the pain. Teresa currently resides in Stouffville, Ontario with her husband and four teenage children.
