ABOUT ME

profile.jpg

Hello my name is Jessica, I am a birth doula and newborn care specialist that specializes in infant and perinatal mental health. My holistic care approach focuses on providing parents with the knowledge and skills to confidently birth and care for their newborn. 

I completed my birth doula training with DONA International where I learned the skills and knowledge needed to fully support expecting clients through their pregnancy, labour and delivery, and early postpartum period.  

I am a Certified Infant Massage Instruction with the International Association of Infant Massage. In my infant massage classes, I aim to create a safe-spaces where parents can learn and ask questions, build relationships with other parents and develop secure attachments with their baby. 

Throughout my career I have sought out training as a way to deepen and develop my expertise. Scroll down to see my professional development and certifications.
