My name is Nadine and I’m the proud parent of four beautiful daughters. 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 early 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 in Toronto. 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 and bring my love for Rebozos into my birth work.

I’m a Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, Placenta Specialist – APPAC®, Baby-Led Sleep & Well Being Specialist, and member of Evidence Based Birth. I currently volunteer on the board of directors with the Association of Ontario Doulas, and form part of the Birth Doula program at Markham Stouffville Hospital.

I specialize in overnight postpartum support and have extensive experience caring for multiples. I adore working with infants and bring my expertise in helping support parents with those early nights at home with a newborn.

As a Doula I believe that better support during pregnancy, birth and postnatal periods creates stronger and healthier families. My vision is creating change in my community and building stronger families through support and education.
