Sarah and Sonja both bring a variety of skills and experience to their postpartum doula work. 

We offer sleep and educational support, one to one private prenatal education, fertility support, mental health, parenting, breastfeeding support, and sacred postpartum services. We run regular parenting and mental health support groups and educational workshops. We pair with local birth doulas to provide full services in home, hospital, midwives and community. 



The Doula's

Sarah is mom of 3, Early Childhood Educator, and Postpartum Doula (Certifying with DONA). Sarah is passionate about supporting new parents. Early in motherhood Sarah was diagnosed with a Postpartum Mood Disorder. After seeking treatment and support she healed with an understanding of how very important it is for new mothers to have support and know they are not alone. As soon as Sarah heard about the role of a Postpartum Doula she wished that A) she had one back then! and B) wanted to become one! Sarah brings creativity and understanding to her role as a doula. 

Sonja is a Registered Yoga & Meditation Teacher (500YTT), Core Confidence Specialist, Postpartum Doula (CAPPA), La Leche League Leader, Certified Infant massage instructor, and Childbirth Educator. Sonja is a mother of three and surrogate of one. She has a background in mental health and is a Behaviour therapist. Sonja is trained in postpartum and prenatal yoga and can do private classes as requested.
