What brought me to Doula work: Birthing care is a practice I have been blessed to be exposed to my whole life. My mom was a midwife in the Philippines and the quality of care that she had provided in her profession was instilled in me as a young child. Growing up, I always loved being around the pregnant families in my church and truly enjoyed listening to and feeling their bellies, holding their newborn’s hand and watching them sleep (I was too scared to hold them on my own at that age).
As I got older, my interest in the birthing process blossomed and my passion grew exponentially. I started asking almost everyone I knew about their birth experiences. I was surprised to learn that most of their stories were tied to a terrible, fearful, and near traumatic experience for them. This is when I realized the impact of a trained professional in this field — one that could guide, support, and empower birthing families through their birth and postpartum experience. Every family is so beautifully unique and individualized, which makes doula work that much more intentional and personalized. Being able to witness these incredible experiences is the most rewarding, humbling, and fulfilling service, and I am so honoured to be a part of it.

My specialty: I have a very outgoing personality and have a true passion for getting to know different cultures and traditions. I love caring for families in ways that help me provide more individualized care by learning more about their culture and determining, together, what type of care will be the most valuable and beneficial for them.
