Hi there!

I’m Marijke (she/they), owner of Doula With Care. 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 approach my work from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive and intersectional lens. I am a DONA trained Birth and Postpartum Doula. I provide my support to families who wish to have hospital births, home births, or at the Birth Centre. I have experience in both home and hospital birth environments. I’m happy to support you on your chest/breast or bottle feeding journey with your new baby.
