The birth of a child is always a miracle and life changing moment in a woman’s life.

I have always been in awe of the miracle of birth. Since I was a child, I would listen attentively to my aunt’s stories about her experiences as a Doula and mom of 7, sometimes I would help her in her work.  After University, I started my professional career in a the field of communication sciences and TV and cinematic production, but after I had my first 2 children my passion for birth became my job, and I love it. I have been a Doula since 2003, and I currently run the FDSR, Doula training in french.

I am passionate about birth and about helping women to have a positive birth experience.   I am honored and privileged to be a part of a couple’s birth experience and the welcoming of a new baby in to our world .  I absolutely love to see a mother empowered and able to trust her inner wisdom and draw upon her inner strength.


We discuss your choices as we work towards understanding your preference and writing a birth plan.

I will explain the different comfort measures for labor and birth and how they help.


WIll help you create a calm environment in your birth place (mason de naissance, home or hospital or clinic

I will work, in addition to the midwife and or doctor to help you have an effective and comfortable labour through relaxation, different positions, movements etc.

You are pregnant and you are thinking of hiring me. I love that. But first you need to see if we are a good match. It is very important for me that you find the right Doula for  you. You will be sharing a very special moment in your life and feeling comfortable with your doula is a must.  If you and/or your partner decide that we aren’t a good match, I will be more than happy to direct you towards other doulas.  If we decide to work together, the next step is to set up our first of two prenatal visits.
