When I was 4 years old, my mom became pregnant with her second child. I nearly hugged the life out of my childhood best friend in sheer excitement at the prospect of meeting my new baby brother. While I have learned to tone down my sometimes aggressively friendly tendencies, my enthusiasm for all things birth related has never waned. Despite having the privilege of traveling and moving extensively in my short life, a career rooted in my passion for the birth and parenting process had never occurred to me as a viable option.
It was not until I had been working closely with two friends, from pregnancy to postpartum, that I found out what Doulas were. I was immediately enthralled, and ended my conventional studies in Art/French Education. I soon after moved to Victoria, and pursued the Holistic Doula Certificate at Pacific Rim College. Through this educational and empowering journey, I have emerged a birth advocate and graduated as a passionate Birth & Postpartum Doula.
