Birth


Birth and the following postnatal period are a delicate and magical time in a families life.

Research shows that the way we birth and bond with our baby helps shape our babies future.
As such, this time is greatly enhanced by considerate, compassionate, and wise care.


This is the birth of your baby, the birth of your combined love. This birth will only happen once and you deserve quality care that will honour, protect, and minimize trauma during this fragile yet powerfully transformational time.

Birthwyse Inc. is committed to offering care that nourishes and uplifts a families spirit, heart, and body; care that respects the powerful nature of birth and births potential to shape the future.

My role as your birth doula is to help you have the birth that you are having while you are having it; to offer you nourishment, support, and powerful tools to help you move through each part of your birth from the strongest part of your heart, mind, and body, no matter how it unfolds. Yes, I will help you advocate for your needs and help you understand your options, but more importantly, our work before birth provides you with the confidence to move through whatever birth brings (and even whatever parenthood brings!) from the wisest place within your being. 

Combining elements of mindfulness, breath, yoga therapy, and Thai yoga massage your doula package is tailored to your unique needs. It is my commitment to you, that the birth of your baby is the kindest, the gentlest, and the most comfortable it can be.

As such, each of my packages include the following:

My Personal Birth Manifesto

It should be know that the reason I became and remain interested in birthing, in Doula-ing, is because I believe completely in this human experience. 

We are born, here on earth, and we live as one entire family. We share this earth with plants, animals, and all living beings. In our being human, we have the capacity to make choices; to choose between cultivating more peace, tenderness, compassion and kindness or to choose anger, envy, hate, and neglect. I believe our experiences imprint the way we make these everyday, every moment choices. Our traumas, wounds, and joys become our behaviours and beliefs and we live out these deep imprints day by day. 


Our early environment, in the womb and with our primary care givers, our personal family, plays a significant role in our imprinting. The way we are received in utero and during birth impact our imprinting. And thus I believe powerfully in the capacity of the primary caregiver to make choices that serve their baby in receiving a kinder more gentle imprint.


My support of you and your family, prenatally, during birth, and into early postpartum, is to walk with you as you work with your own imprints, healing your own early traumas and wounds, supporting you in recognizing your deep currents of gentleness and grace, and witnessing you do this dance for you believe in a kinder more balanced future life for your love. You are unafraid of the work involved, you are ready to face your motivations and intentions, to make your choices. You want the support of one who see's all of who you are and is not shy to witness you in your light and your dark. I believe this is the work of being human, and I walk with you too.


We share this earth, we share this life. We share this work. Birth is the entry point.   


To this deeply beautiful path we share, I hold to being a Doula and a servant of the entry way to this planet. And I am in gratitude to all of you who allow me to witness and become a part of a beings becoming.

 

May all beings birth with wellness!
