Birth can be unpredictable sometimes. It wasn’t long after knowing I was finished having babies that I realized just how much I respected the birth process. I made the decision to train as a childbirth educator and labour/postpartum doula because I saw there was a need, a need for people to understand and experience labour and delivery rather than simply find a way to deal with the pain. My desire is to travel with you on your journey through pregnancy, delivery and early parenting so you can enjoy and thrive in each step along the way.

Teresa Maskery is a CAPPA Certified Labour/Postpartum Doula, Childbirth/New Parent/Lactation Educator, CAPPA Faculty Member and the Senior Program Adviser for the CAPPA Childbirth Educator department. She has been serving clients across York Region since 2008 as the business owner of My Baby Bump and Stouffville Prenatal. Teresa holds a diploma in Early Childhood Education from St. Lawrence College in Kingston Ontario, and uses this combined skill set to support families through pregnancy, delivery, and parenting. Teresa’s passion to see people achieve their desired birth experience, extends beyond her business and into her volunteer role as a director on the board of the Markham Stouffville Crisis Pregnancy Centre. She became a doula because she believes there is a need for people to understand and experience labour and delivery rather than simply find a way to deal with the pain.
