The word Doula has its origins as a Greek word for “Woman’s Servant” and was adapted in the 1960’s to refer to the non-medical, empowered, female support during labour and birth. While it’s modern definition is primarily focused on pregnancy, birth, and mother support – I envision a more expansive and encompassing definition of Doula in the services I offer.
There is strength in the support we are able to offer one another through the phases and stages of our life. There is strength in belief, focus, encouragement, and the ability to hold a calm space for the best, most positive outcomes to come through.
The word Doula is a beautiful word! It is a strong word and it denotes only an empowerment of ourselves and others.
Simply put: We are all in this together.
Transitions Reiki became the perfect name for what I do.
There is a pivotal time during the birthing experience known as transition when moving from one stage to the next is at its most challenging and trying for mothers, but it also signals that the baby is close to being born – we will go through anything when we know how sweet the reward of holding our baby will be; but wouldn’t it be nice to approach a transition like this in the most empowered and relaxed way possible? The calming support of Reiki energy creates and holds the space for that to happen and it assists us in handling life’s biggest moments with triumph instead of trauma.
Birth, Death, Divorce, Healing, Family, Parenting and all of the spaces in between will compel you to meet the newest versions of yourself at the endings/beginnings of every life stage. You can meet yourself there with compassion and grace.
How we prepare and approach these transitions, emotionally and mentally, makes all of the difference to how easily and peacefully we go through them physically.
I offer Reiki therapy; Relaxation, Meditation Coaching and Self-Healing practices that soothe the transitory process and brings us back to the center of our self. From that center, we can proceed in a more balanced and aligned way that supports and empowers who we see and know ourselves to be. On a spiritual level, you are simply bigger than your physical body and tapping into the wholeness of who you are connects your experiences with a broad perspective and offers amazing clarity into your being and purpose.
I offer Astrology services to anyone wanting to expand their awareness in how they define themselves and who wants to explore the index of beliefs that we store within our consciousness; beliefs that create who we see ourselves to be and those that build a bridge to who we see ourselves becoming.
My Birth and Postpartum Doula Services encompass Reiki therapy during pregnancy, birth planning, and information support that empowers encouragement and belief in your very own ability to make the decisions that are best for you. I offer support presence and Reiki practices for mothers and partners that strengthen the mind-body connection to allow your whole self to do what it naturally knows how to do during birth and in the time afterwards where your only job should be to enjoy your family and this new stage of life.
I offer Family Doula Services because change is a constant, inevitable companion in our lives, but with a broader perspective, it can be a welcome and joyous one, as well.
There are times when life feels overwhelming after the death of a loved one, or during the death transition of our loved ones; when a marriage breaks open or our family drastically changes shape;
We all need support sometimes.
Through Reiki, you can connect to that broader perspective and meet your self in a deep and meaningful way, you will have access to an intuitive guidance that serves as your compass on every road you are on. Your emotions are wonderful indicators and your mind is an amazing tool – Reiki is an empowerment and spiritual consciousness that is eager to connect with the wholeness that is you.
If you are interested in any of my services; I am located in the Durham Region – East of Toronto, Ontario and I offer online support in many ways, as well.
