Kate found her passion for this work after the birth of her second child. It was then that she learned that birth happens best when you feel safe and that you feel safest when you're empowered by informed choice. The grounding and nurturing support she received from her own doula inspired her to become a doula herself. Kate became a Certified Holistic Doula training with The Matrona and also took Birth Doula Training through DONA International. Outside of her birth support role you can find Kate in her garden or enjoying the slow living on her hobby farm tending to her children and animals.
Taejah has always been passionate about working with families and children and has lots of experience with this in many environments. Since experiencing her own homebirth, she has been intrigued by the process of birth. Becoming a doula has allowed her to step into a role she is completely fulfilled with. Taejah is a trained birth and postpartum doula. She wholeheartedly believes in physiological birth, quality connection and empowering families with decision making surrounding birth. Outside of being a doula you can find Taejah pouring into her family and friends, enjoying a hot cup of coffee or watching a good show on Netflix.
Aislin is a certified birth worker and childbirth education student. She felt like the stars aligned when she discovered this role within the birth community while completing a degree in psychology at UBCO over seven years ago. She has since welcomed her own two babes - both at home, both in the water! Her philosophy of support is a balance between candid conversation having, intuitive gut trusting, & evidence based educating. When off-call, Aislin can usually be found out & about in her beloved home city, a good book always within reach, or planning family getaways to escape the cold & the ever-growing piles of laundry!
Aislin and her family moved to North Vancouver, BC in the spring of 2023. She offers administrative support & senior mentorship to our Beautiful Blessings team, hoping to expand mentorship opportunities to other birth & postpartum workers in the near future. If you are a past client of Aislin's or were referred directly to Aislin, please don't hesitate to contact her directly by text or email.
