Innate Wellness 

Birthing

Childbearing person centred care

 

Honouring your innate wisdom 

personal authority

and the sacredness of pregnancy,

birth and postpartum wellness

Warm Welcome... please feel free to get comfortable as I introduce myself and the resources I am able to offer you and your family as you prepare to grow and welcome a new life into this world, or process the complexities of a chosen or unexpected end of a pregnancy.

I value my lived experience of being a mother, an auntie, a sister, a practitioner, and a warm, loving, respectful, culturally safe, trauma informed woman of 49 years. I understand this to be enough to support you in your experience, whatever it may be;

 

menstrual cycle support, fertility, pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion, home birth, hospital birth, postpartum care, blessing way, closing ceremony, grief ceremony, honouring these times of initiation and transformation, holding space and witnessing.

I am honoured and deeply grateful to be present with any childbearing person as they journey along the path of this rite of passage. 

I am registered with the Doulas for Aboriginal Families Grant Program (DAFGP). This program provides up to $1000.00 for Doula services. In addition, travel and accommodation expenses are covered as long as funding is available.

I will travel anywhere. I am available to stay with you or in your community for up to 7 days before due date and up to 7 days after due date for a total of 15 days. I also understand that babies come when they arrive, and strive to be there to support you when ever that is. 

I facilitate blessing way ceremonies, which honour the interconnectedness of you and the folks in your community who love and support you through this time of deep internal focus. Blessing ways honour your ancestors, the Land and the Medicines that support you on every level.
