Birth & Postpartum Doula
Yoga & Meditation Teacher
Hello my name is Amy, I am delighted to share a little about myself and my work.
I am a Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula through Wise Woman Way of Birth as well as a Registered Yoga and Meditation Teacher with over 300+ hours of continuing education, including Y.O.G.A. for Youth Training. My interest in yoga and meditation grew from my own healing and spiritual evolution, now they are the base for many of my relaxation techniques and prenatal education. I am an active member of the Doula Services Association of BC and am currently working towards finishing a full spectrum pregnancy loss course. I am a certified Peristeam facilitator, reiki practitioner and do mediumship readings. I have always had a passion for learning and sharing holistic techniques to support our evolution as human beings.
I was drawn into the birth world after having friends continually asking me to be present during their births. I was in awe, deeply humbled and grateful to be invited into the transformational and raw experience. Things I learned early on is that having a baby is a beautiful balance of physiology, spirituality and a dance between emotions, the body and mind. Shortly after I came to the profound realization that I was a birth keeper as a child and that I was born for this path. My early years of holding space for animals during pregnancy, birth and postpartum has given me a valuable understanding of the captivating process that takes place in the human body as it creates life. The human potential is truly unlimited and birthing people are a true testament to that.
However, I also recognize it is easy to get disoriented, overwhelmed and lost in the information, when trying to navigate pregnancy, preparing for your birth and becoming a new parent.
My intention is to instill trust in your body and intuition, help to honor your chosen path and to keep the birth space a sacred one. I will guide you in feeling mentally prepared, emotionally and physically supported for your journey ahead, so you can soften into the process and make informed, evidence based, empowered and intuitive decisions for you and your family. I will help you navigate the crucial moments that lead up to the birth, so that you feel confident in who you are and what your body and baby are capable of. You have everything you need already inside you, sometimes you just need a reminder. I would be elated and deeply honored to hold space for you and your family during this wildly powerful and transformational journey. Let’s set the solid foundation for your desired experience together.
I have always been deeply connected to the wild earth medicine that is all around us; spending most of my free time out in Nature with my dog Fiona, volunteering at the farmers market, creating delicious vegetarian recipes, gardening, meditating under trees, journaling, reading and swimming in cold water.
Nature has so much to teach us if we take the opportunity to connect to her and the deep nature within us.
I look forward to connecting with you.
