I am a full-time professional birth doula, birth educator, postpartum doula, breastfeeding counsellor, and provide knowledgeable support to families in Kelowna and the Okanagan. I custom design packages that will suit your individual needs and values, style, and preferences for support.

Here you will find doula care but also, everything you will need in the journey from pregnancy through birth, and into the tender postpartum time. I am here for the modern family.

I believe the journey of birth and the transition to parenting is life-changing and takes preparation and understanding. I hold strong the belief that childbirth is normal, natural and healthy.

As one of the more experienced doulas in Kelowna, I feel passionate about always advancing my birth education and adding to my skill set. I love to work with families.  And because pregnancy and birth, with all that entails, is such a unique time, the role of a doula can be invaluable.

Let me help you have a birth and postpartum you’ll feel good about.
