Hi! I am Simone, Birth Doula, Naturopathic Doctor graduate and Massage Therapist graduate. I love empowering women to reconnect with their inner instincts and have the best possible experience with their births, in whichever way they choose to give birth. Learn more about me here.
Background and experience:
I am a Birth Doula trained by DONA International. I am also Naturopathic Medicine graduate from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, Toronto, Ontario, and most recently, I completed studies in Massage Therapy at Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy, Toronto, Ontario. Other trainings include Reiki and BodyTalk System.
My training and experience allows me to empower women with up-to-date information, relaxation techniques, massage, energy healing techniques, to guide and comfort women as they go through the process of giving birth.
As a practitioner,I am passionate about listening to what my clients need, providing a safe space for them to share their concerns and wishes and helps them achieve their highest potential in life. With my knowledge and skills, I am able to assist them in re-establishing balance in their person as a whole.
Birth is one of the most intense experiences women can go through in their lives and it can affects their babies as well. In my personal experience, my mother had a very difficult birth process when I was born. Every time she would tell the story of my birth, I would experience her feelings of sadness, fear and despair, as she had a very difficult birth and lack of support. This motivated me to explore birth in depth, learning about the amazing physiology of birth and finding out more about what can help yield a more positive experience of birth. I observed that, as women distanced themselves from their roots as human beings, it affected their birthing process, making it harder than it is. On the other side, the more women could reconnect with their basic natural instincts, trust their bodies and receive support, the more satisfying was their birthing experience. This have inspired me to help as many women as possible by supporting and helping them to reconnect to their roots.
