My name is Carrie, I was born in Florida and moved to Ontario in 1994. I have three beautiful boys who mean the world to me!
Growing up I always knew I wanted to work at helping women give birth. I had a traumatic birth with my first son, where nothing went as I had planned, I was left feeling very disappointed with the birth itself (not with my son, I’ve never been so in love!). I knew at that point that I had to become a birth doula!
Just short of two years later, I got pregnant with my second son. I was determined to have a better birth, to be in charge of my body and to bring my son into a very calm and loving environment. I was very lucky to have two amazing midwives who let me do whatever felt natural.
Now that my boys are a bit older, I am following my dream. I trained with DONA, Int. and am currently finishing my training to become a certified birth doula. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to help empower women to birth the way they want to.
My name is Lynanne. I have been married to the same man for 29 years and counting. We have four children, and eight adorable grandchildren.
I had the opportunity to be a part of the births of three of my grandchildren and it was unforgettable. I trained with DONA, Int and love my job!
There is nothing like helping a woman while she labours and brings another beautiful baby into the world. I am inspired by every labouring mother I help.
