WHAT STEPS DID IT TAKE TO GET YOU TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
1. Took my Doula training
2. Started my business
3. Started taking on clients
4. Started building our team with other like-minded Doulas
HOW DO YOU STAND OUT IN YOUR FIELD?
We care about presenting evidence-based information and support to our clients. We come from educational and scientific backgrounds, so we are able to bring that knowledge to the table too.
WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO? WHY DO OTHERS CARE?
I care about the wellbeing of mothers and their families in our community. It's important to me that we start correcting this harmful narrative of moms needing to "bounce back" instead of taking the time to heal, process, and grow into the role of mothering. I stand by the fact that a happy, healthy mom will lead to better outcomes for her child(ren) and family as a whole.
WHAT TYPE OF COLLABORATIONS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? ARE COLLABS OF INTEREST TO YOU?
Yes, I love collaboration! I would be open to many different collaborative ideas.
WHAT IS YOUR NUMERO UNO WAY TO GET INSPIRED?
Chatting with others who are passionate about their work always keeps me inspired!
WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOURSELF AT THE START OF YOUR CAREER TO HELP EASE YOUR TROUBLED MIND?
Dive in and be confident in what you have to bring to the table.
WHO INSPIRES YOU, OR MENTORS YOU?
My own Birth Doula from when I had my first child. She inspired me to become a Doula because of how much she helped me. I reach out to her whenever I need advice.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PROJECT YOU’RE WORKING ON AT THIS TIME?
I've been really enjoying the Preparing for Postpartum workshops that we offer every 6 weeks.
