About Me

IMG_6568.jpg

Hey, I'm Kristi! I am a Birth + Postpartum Doula in Kelowna, BC. I am an uninvited guest on the beautiful and diverse unceded traditional territory of the Syilx Okanagan people.

 

I am a mama to two young boys who keep me busy and I am married to my best friend. I was drawn to birth work after my first birth that involved a complicated labor and delivery, as well as undiagnosed Postpartum Depression. I always knew I was meant to be a mom, but I found myself struggling through each day and feeling overwhelmed by the transition. I was smiling for others while silently struggling. I quickly realized how little support is in place for new parents, and how much more support is needed during such a pivotal time.

I am a social worker (BSW) and have worked as a Counsellor with youth and families for several years in addressing trauma, mental health, and addictions. It is this work, passion for supporting others, and my own experience with becoming a parent that led me to become a doula. I believe that maternal mental health is a priority and that you deserve to experience the joy of pregnancy + parenthood with your wellness in mind. As a doula, my goal is to provide you with the support you desire through pregnancy, birth, and the fourth trimester to leave you feeling empowered and confident. 

Being welcomed into anyone's birth or postpartum space is an immense privilege. I am passionate about supporting all people on their journey to parenthood. With my professional background, I specialize in supporting parents with previous trauma (birth or other), history of pregnancy loss, previous operative births, or existing mental health challenges to provide them with a new chapter where they feel empowered and healthy. All folks are welcome in my work. 

Thanks for being here, and I'd love to be a part of your story!

"As a very anxious first time mom, I wanted someone who could help me navigate pregnancy, delivery and postpartum mom life calmly and confidently. I found this in Kristi! She provided my husband and I easy to understand information on the stages of birth that made us feel much more in control and positive about the birthing process. I can't even begin to explain how much this helped me through everything and how much stronger she made me feel. Becoming a parent can be overwhelming but with all the knowledge Kristi has, it made me feel less anxious and more excited. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is going through the birth process!"

I could not have gotten through all of it the way we did if it wasn't for Kristi. Not only is she very knowledgeable, experienced, and very nice, she's calming and delivers everything in an easily digestible manner. She really cares and it shows. 

 I also appreciate how she was one of the very few people who asked how I was doing as a father mentally. For good reason, and quite understandably, the focus is often on mama. But we are a team and the mental and physical health of all involved is important. She gave me tools to help with my own stress as a Dad who wants to be able to do everything in his power to ease the troubles of mama and baby. 

Thank you so much Kristi.

Thank you again so much for everything! Having you throughout my pregnancy and birth was definitely what made me more comfortable and relaxed for everything and made it such a positive experience for me!

You definitely met my main goal for this pregnancy and that was to feel empowered. I would 100% describe my labor as  a very empowering experience.
