Toronto Doula - Joanne, under a rainbow
Joanne was calm, respectful, warmhearted and empathetic. She was very knowledgeable and I felt like she truly cared about us.

about Me

As a certified doula, I have expertise in labour & birth, postpartum care, breastfeeding support, mental health, mindfulness, & vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) births. 

I am based in Toronto and I travel up to 45 minutes to see clients (including Milton, Mississauga, Brampton, Richmond Hill, and Pickering).

I completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Master of Public Health at the University of Guelph in 2013. I am a certified Labour & Birth Doula, and a certified Postpartum Doula with Doula Training Canada

All my work has one goal: empower people to trust themselves. 

As a doula, I work with all families including blended families, queer families, families with trans parents and kids, and young parents. I am committed to approaching my work from a feminist, anti-oppressive perspective. I am passionate about supporting parents who are experiencing mental illness (related to the birth of their baby or not). 

I am a member of the Association of Ontario Doulas

In addition to birth work, I own an Etsy shop where I make feminist baby clothes. Check me out at Tiny Feminist Clothing Co.

I believe in your body and your ability to birth your baby safely. I believe you will create an enriching environment in which to care for your baby and yourself. You are powerful.
