With Ginny as my doula for a drug-free birth in 2006 and a water birth in 2009, I was inspired to become a doula. I am a mum to two wonderful and active boys. I am passionate about empowering individuals and families to have a more holistic lifestyle through the use of essential oils, healing/energy work, and card reading. I teach the monthly “Essential Oils for Pregnancy and Newborn and First Aid” classes at Four Trimesters. My goal is to empower families with the knowledge of using natural products during pregnancy, labor and postpartum.

I ♥ being a Doula because
“The birth of a baby symbolises a new beginning on Earth. It can be life transforming for both of the parents, not to mention for the baby.”
I am forever grateful to have had a doula during both my births. I saw the amazing support that she brought to my family’s life. This edge enabled my new additions to start their journeys through life on the right footing. It is my passion and life’s calling to make a difference in the world, one family at a time. It is my honour to be able to serve parents, their babies and their families on this journey.
Joycelyn, thank you for the awesome birth experience. Your patience, confidence and support helped me in delivering my baby drug free, exactly how I wanted. Entire birth 16 hours starting midnight, you did not sleep did not eat and stood by me. You assisted me on both personal and professional level. See you again my perfect doula at my next birth! Xoxo!

One of the best decisions we made as first time parents was having Joycelyn as our Doula. She calmed our nerves and helped us prepare weeks leading to the birth of our son. During labour she was a pillar of support for my husband and an assuring voice I trusted. While we had a birth plan and did all we could to prepare for a natural birth, without Joycelyn by our side we would not have had a relaxed and comfortable birthing experience. She took care of us, allowing me to relax and even smile during surges! Her focus in helping me breastfeed my baby boy right after birth provided such a huge relief the days after labour. We will always be thankful for having her by our side during this precious moment.
