Since 1992 the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) leads a global celebration of midwives on May 5th. Although there is still a lot of work to do in Alberta to insure access to midwifery care for as many women as possible, we are very fortunate to have a great list of midwifery practises in the Edmonton area. Today we celebrate and honour the amazing work they do!

I am a postpartum doula.
I am a nurturing spirit who creates joy and ease; a trusted expert; someone who not only teaches, but also actively listens. I foster confidence. I help families understand and navigate through their conflicting emotions. I support and guide families through the rough waters during those first few hours, days, weeks, and months at home with their new baby.
