As a birth keeper, I work on-on-one with women, their loved ones, and the baby to support the natural (physiological), emotional, & spiritual processes of childbirth.
My studies have taken me to Ecuador with Wombs of the World, to learn from indigenous midwives there, and doula at a hospital in Otavalo.
I learned about rebozo and the “Closing of the Bones” ceremony from the Quichua partera in the Andes, as well as from a Toronto reiki healer & midwife, Isabel Perez.
A firm believer in the healing power of human touch, I have also been to Thailand, to study Thai massage in Chiang Mai.
In Toronto where I live, I’ve taken pre & postnatal yoga, acupressure for pregnancy, birth & postpartum, breastfeeding support, how to be with trauma & grief– among many other incredible workshops from teachers here.
Mentored since 2018 as part of the Awakening the Village Doula Mentorship Collective led by Sasha Padron, and trained in Labour & Birth by Doula Canada (2017)
… I have hundreds of hours of training & personal work that I’m bringing in.
We know so much right now, with the insights offered by modern science catching up more and more to the holistic wellness wisdom of the earth’s oldest healing traditions– it’s a powerful time to be having a baby, and starting a family.
We know enough to know that… surrendering to the unknown… to the great guidance and reserves of power within, well that’s what it’s all about.
Book in with me for a free consultation. I’d love to hear your story.
I believe when we take good care of ourselves– tending to our most inner personal yearnings, and getting to know our bodies– we model the best of humanity for the next generation.
We teach children through our own wellness what is the good life, how to be content, and find fulfillment.
By walking our own path, we model for the people around us how to move forth as their own connected, confident, and whole, imperfect beings– choosing integrity.
In this sense we are all “mamas to be”, women in the making, mothers in the making, and models for the next generation, constantly.
Mamas To Be – dedicated to creating a peaceful, informed, and connected approach to life, babies, birth, & bodies.
