Yvette is a professional, DONA trained doula, whose warm, informative style has helped more than 100 families to reduce stress, know their choices and feel supported to navigate birth the way that works best for them.
Yvette is the mom of grown twins, and prior to becoming a doula, spent many years as a group facilitator and teacher for a variety of parent-baby programs, (including groups for premature babies and multiples), as well as being a peer-to-peer breastfeeding mentor in her children’s early years. She has been a Certified Infant Massage Teacher for over a decade, and has completed training in Accupressure for Labour, Teaching Skills (through the Douglas College Perinatal Program), as well as Biologix Occupational Health and Safety Training for placenta encapsulators, and CPR for Healthcare Providers. Yvette loves to keep up with new studies about pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum season, so she can pass along important information to her clients as they prepare for the addition to their family!
When she’s not “doula-ing,” Yvette enjoys trips to sunny destinations, gardening, and creative and geeky pursuits, like painting, photography and crafts. You can find her often with her hubby and bff of 27 years watching Star Wars and superhero movies (Wonderwoman is the best!)
