Trust is something that needs to be earned and I hope that by reading a little about who I am, I am able to begin the process of earning your trust and respect.
I am a proud mom to two amazing grown men, stepmom to a teenage girl, and a loving wife to an incredible woman. As a member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, I am committed to creating safe and inclusive spaces for all individuals on their journey to parenthood.
My passion for helping people give birth in a safe and respectful manner was ignited in 1998 after the birth of my first child. Since then, I have had the honour of attending the births of hundreds of babies, and my knowledge and expertise have continued to grow and evolve.
I hold multiple credentials including being a Certified Fertility Coach & Educator, Birth & Postnatal Doula, Childbirth Educator, retired La Leche League Canada Leader, and Parenting Coach. I am dedicated to staying informed and up-to-date in order to provide the best support and education to individuals and families.
Recognizing the importance of inclusivity and diversity in the world of childbirth and parenting, I founded babyREADY. It is my mission to create a safe and respectful space for members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community to learn about conception, pregnancy, labour, birth, postpartum, feeding, and parenting. I am committed to empowering and supporting all individuals in their unique journey to becoming parents, and I am proud to be a part of their stories.
I'm Sam (she/her/hers), and I'm honored to welcome you to babyREADY. Let's get started!
