Hello, my name is Yonit and I am a CAPPA trained labour & postpartum doula.
I have always been drawn to work with children and families.
In fact, before I became a doula I was a child and youth worker for over 10 years. I worked with children of various ages and from all walks of life. I found inspiration from my clients on a daily basis. I'm also a professional ice skating coach and teach children of all ages as well as adults.
After my own pregnancies and the birth of my children, I was inspired to become a doula. I realized that my own labour experience may have been more positive had I engaged a doula. She could have helped me to relax into my labour and empowered me to ask the right questions, especially when I was a first time mother. I decided I wanted to join the sisterhood of doulas and be that support for other women, helping ease their transitions into motherhood.
I believe in the importance of supporting and empowering new mothers and in simplifying the postpartum period. It is an honour and a privilege to be involved in a family's most intimate of settings and supporting them during such a memorable time in their lives. Providing care and support is a rewarding experience and I cherish every moment that I spend with my families.
