It’s so exciting visiting with former doula families. It’s my pleasure to watch them bloom!

Kahless’ Mother laboured with bravery and tenacity. She’s consistently had faith and confidence in the birthing process as a whole. His Father is a conscientious birthing partner who is quick to think outside the box to offer support.
I had the pleasure of supporting this special family during big brother Colten’s birth a few years ago. It’s always an honor to be asked back by a family to support in any way during this miracle time.

She was cheerful and a joy to all around her. She fell in awe with how capable her body proved to be. She never imagined how much she would impress herself. Jimmy’s father was well prepared. He was very impressed with his wife and was continually able to provide her comfort and entertainment.
