They say it takes a village to raise a chilD…
We believe this wholeheartedly which is why we are passionate about working with families and helping them build up their village. We want you to know that we've spent time building a village of support for ourselves too! When you work with me you get the extra benefit of a shared care model, meaning that you get the expert support and insight from myself and a doula from my team.
With every package, you will have a Back-up Doula (we even have a secondary back-up doula for the busy months!) so that you are always covered for full support. You can schedule a time to meet your back up Doula closer to your estimated due date.
Meet your team!
Back-up Doula and Shared Care
Hi I'm Kate and it's great to meet you. I’m a Toronto-based birth and postpartum doula, childbirth educator, infant sleep educator, breastfeeding educator, babywearing educator, and yoga instructor (vinyasa flow and pre/postnatal yoga). I am also a certified primary school teacher (with an M.A. in Effective Learning), specializing in the Early Years.
I’m also a parent who has been where you are now. I brought my own babies (twins!) into the world surrounded by support, warmth, and the information I needed to feel empowered and in control. I know first hand what the ups and downs of parenting look like and that the right care can make all the difference.
Having a trusted expert to rely on for re-assurance, guidance, and support during childbirth and afterwards is invaluable. It is the difference between fear and confidence. Calm and overwhelm. Darkness and light.
When you work with me, I want you to feel like you have an experienced friend on your side. One who is warm, relaxed, and calm under pressure. I approach my job with a ton of empathy – and zero judgement.
When I am not supporting families, I can be found exploring parks, farmer's markets and the Toronto Islands, with my twins and partner, drinking green tea or green smoothies; or unwinding in a yoga or barre class.
You can find more members of our "Village" including the secondary back-up Doulas, overnight Doulas, Pelvic Health Physiotherapists, and many other helpful services and professional practitioners on our Resources Page which is continuously being updated. Email us if you're looking for a specific service!
I take on a limited number of birth doula clients each month so as to be able to fully serve each one. It’s never too early in pregnancy to sign-on – it’ll ensure you don’t miss out on a spot, and that you get the most out of your prenatal support! I also offer payment plans upon request. Please feel free to reach out for more information, or to book a consultation.
No questions are too big or too small!
I am always happy to chat about anything related to your pregnancy to parenthood journey.
