About me

I’m Kait, a Toronto-based (but very mobile!), DONA International-trained doula who is ready to support you throughout pregnancy, birth, and beyond! I have a strong passion for pregnancy, birth, babies, and supporting new parents, and my patience, care, and understanding nature are what set me apart. I will always listen without judgement and be here to advocate for you and your family. Think of me as your pregnancy and birth coach – whether this is your first child or your fifth, I am here to support you similarly to how a personal trainer helps you at the gym, how a wedding planner helps you achieve your dream wedding, or how a tour guide helps you plan your perfect vacation. From day one, I will support your pregnancy with resources, information, and education; your birth with positivity and hands-on comfort measures; and your early post-partum journey with confidence and love. I will be by your side as you bring your baby into the world whether at a hospital, birthing centre, or in the comfort of your own home. Once baby is born, I will continue to provide you with educational support as well as encouragement and emotional support as you become acquainted with your baby. I will support your infant feeding journey (breastfeeding or otherwise) and offer household organizational support. My first language is English, but I can also support you in conversational French, Portuguese, and basic Italian! Aside from supporting families as they grow, I have a passion for travelling, art, and food!

Service introduction

As a birth doula, I will provide you with education during pregnancy, and accompany you while in labour to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I can provide reassurance and perspective to you and your partner, make suggestions for labour progress, and help with relaxation, soothing touch, positioning and other techniques for comfort. I draw on my professional training, knowledge, and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and, as needed, communication with hospital staff to make sure that you have the information you need to make informed decisions as they arise in labour and immediately postpartum. As a postpartum doula, I will assist you with self-care recovery measures, provide information on self and baby care, assist you in caring for and feeding of your new baby, breastfeeding support, assist your family with adjusting to new roles, and offer household organizational support: including preparing occasional light meals, laundry, tidying, and dishwashing.
