Along with teaching Hypnobabies classes, I am a Birth Doula and a Hypno-Doula and have been assisting families on their birth journeys in Edmonton and surrounding areas since 2010. The birth of a child is miraculous, and a woman will remember her birth experience for the rest of her life. It should be amazing, blissful, and transformative. I am committed to helping mothers make that memory a positive one as I walk beside them and their partners on their birth journey.
I am also a Reiki Master and believe that the healing Reiki energy has great benefit for both mother and baby before, during and after birth.
I have a background in homeopathy as well and offer homeopathic consultations and remedies for any minor pregnancy related issues.
I also provide, through hypnosis, support for any expectant mom needing help to quit smoking.

Have you ever decided to just throw caution to the wind and follow your heart? That’s exactly what I did back in 2010 when I decided to completely switch gears career wise and become a Birth Doula. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made… Well, aside from marrying my wonderful husband and having our two beautiful children!

As I journeyed into the birth world as a doula, I discovered Hypnobabies. Their philosophy, and childbirth hypnosis in general, really resonated with me and I decided to become a Hypnobabies instructor in 2011 and be the first to bring this amazing program to families in my area… Also, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Since then, I have had the honor of sharing Hypnobabies with approximately 200 mothers and their birth partners. You can read some of their testimonials and beautiful birth stories on my website.

Every time I teach a class, I am reminded of why I got into this work. Though it never feels like “work” to me. It’s more of a passion. I’m so grateful to be able to play such an integral role in helping mothers to have beautiful birth experiences that are full of confidence, empowerment, peace, comfort, and joy. It’s also lovely to witness how Hypnobabies can bring a couple together in preparation for the birth of their child.

I often have couples come to me who are fearful of birth. By the end of our classes though, they are excited to give birth and are looking forward to it. That’s when I know I’ve done my job. It warms my heart to see an expectant couple totally embrace Hypnobabies and go on to have a wonderful birth experience. I am honored and privileged to be a part of that experience. I love to see a mother empowered and able to trust her inner wisdom and draw upon her inner strength (and with Hypnobabies, use the power of her own mind to bring herself comfort and relaxation). To witness a child’s birth is something that I deeply cherish and am grateful to experience.
