Hi, my name is Stephanie and I am the owner and founder of MIND BODY BABY, a place where expectant mothers and families can experience a holistic approach to pregnancy, birth, and postnatal recovery.
I created Mind Body Baby with a desire to empower women through education and movement so they can feel strong, healthy, and confident from pre-conception to post-childbirth. My approach to pregnancy and postnatal care involves establishing a strong mind-body connection with attention to both physical and mental preparation and recovery.
It is my honour to be able to support you throughout your pregnancy with comprehensive childbirth education, personalized exercise programs, and remedial massage therapy to support a strong and healthy body. Once your labour begins, I may provide continuity of care in the role of a doula, supporting you and your birth partner in your chosen birth setting. After baby has arrived, I can also assist you in your physical and emotional recovery with a tailored care management plan that involves support with breastfeeding, postnatal exercises, diastasis recti rehabilitation, and massage therapy.
So, if you are searching for guidance in helping you achieve a strong and healthy pregnancy, feeling more confident about your upcoming birth, easing muscular aches and pains, or rehabilitating your body post-childbirth, then it would be my honour to assist you each step of the way.
Thank you for visiting MIND BODY BABY and I look forward to meeting you!
"I believe having Stephanie as a part of our birth was key to having the birth experience we envisioned. After my first birth where I felt I lacked support and information in the hospital, I wanted to experience a natural birth and knew hiring a doula would make that much more likely. Knowing she was there to answer any questions, help us ask the right questions, and support us, was a comfort in the time leading up to birth.
Stephanie provided the perfect encouragement, touch, knowledge, and practical tips throughout the labor. In the end, we had a wonderful and quick hospital birth that started with an induction but was otherwise intervention- and drug-free. Stephanie's recommendations and soothing demeanor had a huge impact on achieving that.
Stephanie is very professional, and the entire hospital staff commented on how they enjoyed working with her. My OB was so impressed she asked for Stephanie's cards for referrals for her patients. Stephanie can help support the mother (and birth partner), no matter the type of birth you end up having".
