WyldFern Postpartum Doula
Postpartum Doula and Companion Care for the Cowichan Valley, Shawnigan Lake and the Westshore
Being taken care of in the Postpartum period is not an indulgence, it is required for the well being of the family unit.
An extra set of hands to tend to the home, listen to your feelings, help to serve delicious warm food, and create a sense of ease in an otherwise overwhelming time. I’m here to make sure you rest and heal well.
"The strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.”
– Barbara Kingsolver
I am passionate about working with families through the many transitions and thresholds we cross. After working closely with families and children for over 20 years (newborn to 5 years) it only felt right to continue to work with families from the beginning to give them the best start. Whether to remind them of the incredible job they are doing as they grow and learn alongside their children, or help to ease the stress of overwhelm.
I have had three children of my own, two daughters earthside and a son who lives in my heart. I know just how invaluable having support can be.
I have previous experience as a Birth Doula and had the privilege of supporting many families, but now my passion lies in nurturing and supporting the healing and nourishment of newborn families as a Postpartum Doula. I am truly honoured to be welcomed in the homes of new families, families welcoming another child, supporting loss families and families who are pregnant again after loss.
I have both my Certified Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula Training as well as Holding Space for Pregnancy Loss Training. Childcare First Aid, CRC, FoodSafe plus over 20 years experience working along side and supporting families as a mother's helper, nanny and in-home childcare provider.
I come into this work with a very caring and empathetic nature. Through my experience and training, my desire is to help families to feel fully supported in the postpartum period. For families who really require it, I do offer as much low-cost/barter or free support as I can depending on the family's situation. If you have limited financial resources, please mention this in your initial email as this reduction in fee does come from my personal business income.
