Welcome! I'm Dana, I am a birth doula, certified yoga instructor, mother of two and student of life currently residing in Edmonton, Alberta. I love spending my time outdoors with my family whether it be soaking in the fresh mountain air or splashing in pretty much any body of water. Before having children I struggled for many years trying to find my purpose in a career. After having my children my life took on a whole new meaning... motherhood and I began to feel fulfilled. I realized my passion and when my cup was the fullest was when I was helping others; joining that with my love for motherhood and family, I now know I am in the exact place I need to be.
As your doula I strive to help you feel empowered and comfortable in your own body as you go through these life changes, whether it be physical changes or emotional. A doula does not assume the role of your partner, we each bring something unique to the table for the birthing person. Your partner or family member has so much love for you going into childbirth, a doula is an outside source for education and there to support you with resources and knowledge in any decision you choose to make.
During our prenatal visits I will get to know you better, talk about your birth wishes and find suitable comfort techniques that will help keep the person giving birth comfortable. I am available for email and text support for any resources you may need in between visits.
As a birth doula I support any family dynamic through pregnancy, labour, childbirth and postpartum.
I am available for postpartum support right after birth including feeding support. During your postpartum visit we will go over any questions you have about the childbirth experience, resources to help make your transition into postpartum smooth and more.
