Sabrina’s love for babies started at the tender age of 5 and only grew stronger as she got older and became a mother. With the outreach of friends and family who started having babies, she discovered her desire to help families navigate their new life and their breastfeeding journey. This led her to fall in love with the world of Doula and lactation support. Prior to her postpartum doula venture, Sabrina has an extensive background in both medical and health/wellness for the past 18 years. At the age of 16, Sabrina started working at a doctor’s office for four family physicians, two of which handled obstetrical care. After 8.5 years, she moved on to the wellness section and moved her way up to running an assessment center and overseeing accounts receivable for 5 physiotherapy clinics until she branched off on her own just prior to finishing her maternity leave. In January 2020, she started her own doula business called Get Doula-fied Inc. Sabrina has the loving support of her husband and three beautiful boys.
