      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 three of our five beautiful kids. 

      I really love being a doula; its my passion! Every family is unique and every birth 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.
      In the past, I've worked in emergency medical services and for the Niagara Region 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. 

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!
