      Hi! Welcome to The Birth Nest website. I'm glad you have taken the time to check us out. Please contact us with any questions. 

      I'm a mother, a surrogate mother, a grandmother and the proud owner of The Birth Nest.  I love being a wife to my wonderful husband and homeschooling tow of our five beautiful kids. 

      I really love being a Doula; its my passion! Every family is unique and every journey is special. Birth is one of the most emotionally charged moments in life. I would be honoured to take part in making your experience a wonderful one.  I would also be honoured to walk by your side through your Surrogacy or Fertility Journey.
      In the past, I've worked in emergency medical services and as a community services worker. I was a foster mom for three years and recently, I was a surrogate for an Australian couple. I love to work hard and I'm passionate about everything I put my heart into. 

    For the past fifteen years, I've been involved in the health and wellness industry in various roles. My focus is on the natural way of doing things, supporting our amazing bodies toward the results that we desire. I am passionate about nutrition and I'm honoured to be a Wellness Ambassador for the Juice Plus Company. 

     My passion is helping families build families and dream birth experiences. I specialize in helping women have a voice, be empowered through education of their rights as well as helping them to have a team they can trust and feel supported around.

     Hi! I am a mother of three precious gems. And I'm passionate about everything related to birth! I have been a doula for nearly ten years now and I love it. I have experienced home birth and hospital birth myself. I've attended many various births scenes over the years. 

     I have lots of experience in teaching prenatal classes, supporting women during labour and delivery, as well as helping the family after the baby is born.

      I specialize in listening to your needs and empowering couples to have their needs met. I look forward to meeting you!
