Coaching for Parents
Regardless of where you are on your family creation or parenting journey, babyREADY has a coaching package for you. Let's set up a free 15 minute consultation and we can talk about what is best for you.
Did you know that we also offer the option of having your parents attend the coaching with you?
Coaching for Doulas
Becoming a doula was a dream -come-true for me in 1998. Since that time I have had the honour to work alongside thousands of families as labour support and as an educator.
The sessions included with this package are created to help you hone your craft, acknowledge and respect your own biases as well as meet the needs of your clients.
In 2022 I began recording conversations with queer parents and queer professionals who work alongside those who want to start or grow their families through parenthood.
In June 2023 I began to air these conversations as the
"becoming babyREADY" podcast.
And just for fun, in February 2021 I began to co-host the new "boobs, bods & brains" podcast that focuses on women's health & wellness.
Speaking & Media Connections
Over the last 25+ years I have had the chance to speak at national conferences, be interviewed for national newspapers and magazines as well as to be on public radio and television.
The awards I have won have been earned through my ongoing commitment to my education and tireless working with families.
To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
Hey, I'm Sam
and I birthed these
Since 1998, I have been supporting families as they navigate the journey of growing and changing.
As a mother to two wonderful grown men, a stepmother to a teenager I can honestly say that parenting is both the most difficult journey to take and yet the very most rewarding. And your feelings about all of it will ebb and flow over time as you learn more about your child AND about yourself as a parent.
My mission is to dispel myths, ease fears, tackle anxieties, and empower my clients through all of parenting experiences they have.
I believe that parenting can be truly rewarding and exciting. I want to work with you to ensure it is the best it can be,
My goal is to make sure that you are able to create the best experience possible for all of your doula clients!
From how you identify your own personal biases to knowing exactly when your scope of practice is being exceeded, we will work together to help you create the doula business of your dreams.
We will also work together to ensure that your social presence reflects your vision and personal beliefs.
