More about me
Ami here! Doula, AIMS Volunteer, Founder of The Flow Birthing Co. and self-proclaimed country bumpkin.
I live in our beloved home with my husband and daughter – who, as you might expect, is the reason I am here writing this bio.
If you’ve found me the chances are you’re pregnant or know someone who is – probably much like you- when I was pregnant I was scared. Terrified in fact. The abundance of horror stories out there; the media portrayal of birth; the unsolicited touching of our bumps; the “oh you just wait til…” warnings from friends and family scorned by a system that wasn’t designed for women to birth their babies as nature intended- calmly, privately and autonomously. It was only in the year after I had my daughter I became increasingly agitated about the lack of bodily autonomy women expect to have during their pregnancies and birth. I felt strongly that this was a major contributing factor to the ever-abundant trauma among birthing people and I had an overwhelming desire to do something!
So, in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, I decided to prepare with the wonderful Developing Doulas to become a Birth Doula! And with the knowledge and the clarity I have gained through this utterly life-affirming experience and by drawing on the knowledge of the Doula Elders of this glorious community I am now a part of, I hope to help you achieve an informed and unconditionally supported pregnancy and birth, to give you the best chance of embarking on the magical journey of parenthood feeling confident, optimistic and with the emotional space to really take in and enjoy this new life you have created!
With me as your devoted doula you can expect:
- Person-centred and nurturing care – I’m here for you, every step of the way. You and your family are the only people that matter!
- Non-judgmental Support – Your choices matter-what anyone else thinks is not important here.
- Advocacy – I’m on your team and that means I will be willing to stand up for you, if it is what you need/ want.
I would love for us to get to know each other better!
