My name is Nadine and I’m a Certified and Registered Ontario Birth & Postpartum Doula, Certified Dancing for Birth Instructor, Certified Placenta Specialist – APPAC, member of Evidence Based Birth, and working on the Experienced Team with the Birth Doula Program at Markham Stouffville Hospital. I also have the pleasure of currently volunteering on the board of directors with the Association of Ontario Doulas, and it has been a pleasure to help grow the doula profession in Ontario.

After fifteen years working in childcare, I decided to make a career change and bring my passion and knowledge for birth and infant care to the Doula world in 2016. I have had the privilege of going through my Doula journey with my own mother, and have been working with her as a unique mother-daughter team. As a child and young adult, I traveled extensively with my family and resided in Mexico for nearly a decade. This unique upbringing has afforded me the opportunity of also being able to offer my Doula services to families in Spanish.

I love working with families and educating them on birth and babies. There’s truly nothing I enjoy more than helping families as they embark on this journey into parenthood. As a Doula I believe that compassionate support during pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester creates stronger and healthier families.
