My name is Nadine and I’m the proud parent of four beautiful daughters. After fifteen years working in childcare, I decided to make a career change and bring my passion and knowledge for birth and infant care to the doula world in 2016. I have had the privilege of going through my doula journey with my own mother, and have been working with her as a unique mother-daughter team in Toronto and surrounding areas. As a child and young adult, I traveled extensively with my family and resided in Mexico for nearly a decade. This unique upbringing has afforded me the opportunity of also being able to offer my Doula services to families in Spanish and bring my love for Rebozos into my birth work.
I’m a Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, Dancing for Birth Instructor™, Placenta Specialist – APPAC©, Baby-Led Sleep & Well Being Specialist, certifying breastfeeding counselor and serve on the board of directors for the Association of Ontario Doulas. I also have the honour of being part of the Experienced Birth Doula program at Markham Stouffville Hospital.
In addition to my birth work, I have specialized myself in overnight postpartum support and have extensive experience caring for multiples. I adore working with infants and bring my expertise in this field to help support parents with those early nights at home with their new baby or babies. Whether your goal is breastfeeding, pumping, more sleep or just a qualified professional to listen and offer advice, I am here to help you achieve. My goal is always to build up parents’ confidence and create some harmony and routine in the new family.
As a Doula I believe that better support and education during pregnancy, birth and postnatal periods creates strong and healthier families.
