My name is Catherine, (she/her) and I moved to Canada from Wales in 2012.  Married, with three children, Kanata is now where I call Home.

Even though I’m an honorary Canadian, Wales will always have a huge part of my Heart.  I wanted to incorporate some of that into my business, and so Cariad and Care was born!  Cariad means Love in Welsh.  I fell in love with the journey of bringing new life into the world, and with how amazing the human body is to nurture, and bring that babe into the world.

I went through pregnancy, labour and postpartum with minimal support.  My husband was (and is) an amazing help, but knowing how much we both could have benefitted from the help of a Doula, is one of the driving forces behind my decision to do this.

Everyone deserves to have a positive Birth experience.  Everyone deserves support with a newborn.  You deserve support.
