Like many birth workers, my path to becoming a doula began with my own fertility and childbirth journey. The more I learned, the more passionate I became about improving childbirth for everyone, and now you might say that I’m obsessed! In addition to my work as a birth doula, I am also a childbirth educator, teaching prenatal classes with Dancing Star Birth. My doula style is pragmatic, direct and non-judgemental. My clients have remarked that I provide a balanced mix of practical help and emotional support. I use an evidence-based approach and my goal is to give new families knowledge and confidence about the childbirth process so they can go into it feeling positive and well-informed. Then I show up on the day and do what needs doing to ensure the best possible experience. This may include showing your partner possible ways to support you, handling logistical tasks so they can focus only on you, offering you both encouragement and advice, and ideas to help with coping in labour such as breathing, relaxation techniques, movement and positions. When I’m not talking about birth, at a birth or buried in a book about birth I can usually be found enjoying my beloved Hastings Sunrise and Grandview-Woodland neighbourhoods with my dog and toddler.
Classes must have sufficient registration to run. Rarely, we need to cancel a class due to lack of registration. If that should happen, we will find another class for you, schedule a private class, or return your full registration, as you prefer. Full payment for classes should be received within one month of the class, to ensure your registration. Should you need to cancel for medical reasons anytime prior to the start of class, you can request to switch your class to a one on one online session. If you have given birth before the start of the class, a refund will be given minus a $100 non-refundable deposit. Please give us as much notice as possible so we can fill the spot. For all other cancellation reasons, up to 3 weeks before the class start date, a 50% refund will be issued. No refunds are available 3 weeks before the class starts and for the duration of the class. If you need to miss a single class, you can ask your mentor if you can come early or stay late to help set-up or clean-up during another time and get the low-down on what you missed. Thank you for joining our prenatal class with Dancing Star Birth.
