Welcome to the Salty Stork!


As a trained birth worker, I offer support services in Cape Breton and the surrounding area, for all women from all backgrounds, during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

I believe that every woman deserves the best birth experience possible. Through education and a caring, supportive, environment, I can help empower women and assist them in achieving a satisfying birth. Empowerment begins with education; the more you know and learn, the more prepared you are to make informed decisions.

I promise you professionalism and compassion, delivered with a positive and exuberant attitude.  Whether you are looking for a labour doula, postpartum support or childbirth education, I can support you. 

Giving birth is a journey; let me help you along the way.

A labour doula offers emotional and physical support for both you and your partner. They are a continuous support system that works for you, not the hospital or birth center. Having a doula present during labour can help you achieve the best possible birth experience.

Postpartum Doula

Postpartum doulas support a mother following the birth of her baby. They are experienced, well educated professionals in all aspects of postpartum care, for both mom and baby. They can assist in breastfeeding, infant care, and help with all your new parent concerns.
