Retired la Leche League Leader
Infant Massage Instructor
Massage- Doula course in Toronto 2014
I gave birth to three fabulous boys in 2003, 2005 and 2008. All of my births were completely different. I went from a c-section to home birth to a fast hospital birth. But one of the main constants in all was the care that I received.
There is nothing more powerful than having your heart and hand held throughout one of the most powerful moments of your life. Over the years it has been an honor to hold space for some of my clients as she becomes a mother and to see a couple become parents. Truly the most incredible and joyous event in your life.
