Hi I'm Karmen!

I am a Certified Postpartum Doula professionally trained though CAPPA and Doula Canada. I'm passionate about supporting mothers, newborns and their families in the "Fourth Trimester." 

My Story... 

As the second oldest of four siblings, I’ve always had a natural inclination towards caretaking. In adulthood, I found myself being a go-to person for my friends, siblings and their growing families - offering advice, support and a helping hand whenever they needed it. I found fulfillment in being there for others during these pivotal moments in their lives.

 

After 13 years of working in the agricultural equipment industry, I discovered that my true passion lay in supporting new mothers during the postpartum period. I wanted to use my nurturing nature to help women adjust to their new roles as mothers and provide their families with the support they need to thrive.

 

That’s why I made the decision to become a postpartum doula. Through my work, I hope to provide emotional, physical and practical support to new mothers and their families. From offering breastfeeding advice to providing a listening ear during those late-night feedings, I’m honored to be able to make a difference in the lives of others.

 

I live in South East Edmonton with my husband and two Dachshunds. In my free time, you can often find me gardening, camping, crafting or spending time with my large extended family.

 

I am grateful for the opportunity to use my skills and passions to help others, and I look forward to continuing this work for years to come.
