I am following a dream to help families bring their new lives into the world, the way that nature intended. Let's work together to bring birth back to what MOM wants! Full support to families, before, during and after babies are born. More ...

About me:

I am the mother of 2 amazing ladies, the wife of an incredible man, the owner of "Baby love birthing services" serving the Miramichi and surrounding areas, a former VON "healthy baby and me" facilitator of 5 years, a former Autism support worker of 7 years and a million other things. But, the passion I have the most, is for my family and helping yours!

After having incredible births myself, it is now time to focus my baby time to help mothers prepare for the amazing, positive experience that birth is!

6 years ago, I entered the birthing room as a new birth coach, in search of what I knew would be a new and wonderful journey. That day changed my life forever. I cried for 2 days after, with tears of overwhelming joy from assisting a new life into the world. Words cannot explain the happiness I feel while helping a family, and seeing those little squishy baby faces join the world.

After deciding to get my training as a Doula (DONA international, Hypnobabies childbirth hypnodoula, placental encapsulation specialist) I needed to move ahead, and decided to open my business and put all the focus on what I love and live for, and YOU have helped already! I had a small campaign that some incredible people helped me out with, and I was able to fund 2 smaller courses that have helped me out SO much!

So, this is where I need you more than ever. Miramichi is starting to come around with more natural, birthing choices and I want to be the one to get there. I want to be your midwife!

What is a midwife?

Midwives provide the complete course of low-risk prenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care, including physical examinations, screening and diagnostic tests, the assessment of risk and abnormal conditions, and the conduct of normal vaginal deliveries. Midwives work in collaboration with other health professionals and consult with or refer to medical specialists as appropriate. The midwifery model of care promotes normal birth, enables women to make informed choices, and provides continuity of care and support throughout the childbearing experience. Midwives attend births in hospitals, birth centres and at home.


But, midwives aren't legal here!?

Right now, New Brunswick is behind in the times with Midwifery. There are no rules and regulations in regards to practicing as a Midwife.

BUT, that being said....There are no rules or regulations to practicing as a midwife! Meaning, a Midwife can attend home births, as long as they are covered with great insurance and very well trained to do so. What did women do hundreds of years ago? That's right, they had midwives!

How can I help?

ANY donation will help go towards my midwife course, that I am taking through Ancient Art Midwifery. All money will go into my business account and straight to my course!

Where does the money go?

Below, is a link that outlines the tuition costs.

As you will see that I have put more than the amount of the actual course. But, I had to consider books, which are over $700 and other fees that you can see on the page as well.
