Services Offered: Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula
I’m Marijke (she/they), owner of Doula With Care. I recently graduated from the AWCCA program at George Brown as a feminist counsellor/advocate. I’m a queer woman living in Hamilton. I work in my community and also within the GTA. My passion for working with babies and families started from a very young age. I have over 10 years of experience working with babies and young children. I discovered my passion for working as a doula in early 2018, quickly learning that this was the right path for me. I believe pregnancy and the transition into parenthood is such a meaningful time in a person’s life, and it is an honour to be doing the work that I am. I have a special passion for supporting queer families and families of varying structures. I approach my work from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive and intersectional lens. I am a DONA trained birth and postpartum doula. I’m currently completing full spectrum doula training and childbirth education with Birthing Advocacy Doula Trainings. I am supportive of all folks feeding journey with their baby and finding what works best for each individual. While working with each family is unique, I like to prioritize parental emotional well being and resting needs while I am supporting postpartum.
