I was born a Midwife. Embodying the feminine and supporting women bloom their feminine radiance is my calling.
Upon graduating from the Midwifery Education Program in Canada at 23 years old I moved to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Calgary, Alberta and joined a Midwifery practice that would nurture me into the Midwife I am today.
Five years into my practice I joined the women I cared for and gave birth to our first daughter. A year later as I returned to work I found myself receiving four medical labels I did not wish to carry. Anxiety and depression, stage 4 adrenal fatigue, incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
I loved being a mother but my body was breaking down and I was a mess.
In my search for healing, I deepened my yoga practice and had the great fortune of being introduced to the illustrious Tao Tantric Arts For Women.
My yoga practiced was transformed and lit up from the inside guiding my way to Full Spectrum Midwifery and Yoni Yoga; Yoga for your Lady parts.
I believe in a holistic approach to modern midwifery that supports the entirety of a woman during all the phases and cycles of her life.
There are three very distinct and transformative periods of transition in a woman's life: Puberty, Motherhood (physical and metaphysical) and Menopause.
How a woman is guided during these times is vital for her health and happiness. Our current model of health care does not adequately address the issues surrounding the hormonal, emotional and sexual health of women.
We are all on the continuum of these phases and contrary to what we have been taught, they do not have finite start and end points.
We have been erroneously taught to compartmentalize our bodies and our rhythms in accordance with an out dated paradigm.
It is time to deconstruct these old belief patterns that are no longer serving our health and well being and re-pattern new pathways to support our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
