Birth Doula Care
For mothers, parents and families around the world the ways in which we birth our young babies is an act of sovereignty, self-determination and ceremony.
Here on Turtle Island (Canada), there are strong hands, hearts and minds which dedicate their lives to ensure that indigenous babies are born in ways which uphold culture, their language, ceremony, and the Land. For Indigenous birth-workers, birth is an act of loving resurgence.
We are birth doulas, keepers of traditions, carriers of songs, birth-auntys, birth-helpers and relatives to those in need.
My goal is to serve womxn and two spirit folks in their time of preparation, labor and postpartum.
I am also a proud member of Nesting Doula Collective: Birth and Full Spectrum Support for Indigenous Communities and Communities of Colour
“An empowered community is made up by empowered individuals and empowered families, and to me empowerment is feeling at home with who you are, and that begins with the moment of birth. So my own birth story is a great source of strength to me. And so when you ask the questions about our children, I have to go the long way around and say it begins with the way they get born.”
WHAT I OFFER
v i s i o n s | v a l u e s
I believe that every little one deserves a loving, culturally-safe and dignified entry into this world.
My work as a birth doula is to ensure that Indigenous families, mothers and parents, receive culturally-relevant, decolonial and respectful care in their birth experience. My goal is to support you and your specific changing needs, throughout your pregnancy and at your time of birth.
Services offered in English, French, Spanish & Portuguese (BR).

NO-COST DOULA LIST
Not everyone can afford a doula.
While my services are available to everyone, my own cultural teachings remind me that I am responsible to support any Indigenous family or womyn in need.
I believe that every one who needs/wants birth support should get it. Therefore, I offer my services to those who can not afford birth support (specifically single mothers, first time mamas).
I believe in trade economy and am open to discussing a trade for our time together!
