Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a birth doula, a mom, a wife, a sex educator, a trained counsellor and university student. I was raised in a family of smart, vibrant and powerful women and I credit them for my deep-seated passion for creation and the feminine.

I believe sexuality and birth are intrinsically linked. In addition to my regular doula training I am also trained to support survivors of sexual abuse through their childbearing year. I also facilitate regular workshops at Venus Envy focused on Sex During Pregnancy and Sex After Baby. I write a monthly column, Sexy Mama, on both these topics for SexLifeCanada.ca
What is your blogging philosophy?
Creating and fostering community is an integral part of my calling as a doula and educator. I see blogging is an excellent community building opprtunity.
I also facilitate regular new mom discussion groups, clothing exchanges and playgroups in my community. I am a founding member of the NS Doula Association and was Chairperson for two years. I am a passionate advocate for breastfeeding and I volunteer with Bosom Friends, a breastfeeding peer support network. I also sit on the Volunteer Doula Steering Committee.
I have been blogging since...
2007

Creating a Positive, Empowering & Mother-Friendly Breastfeeding Community

Posted on November 26, 2010 at 1:09pm 0 Comments

I hate complaining about something and not offering any solutions. And while my solutions often fall somewhere between “just hold hands and love each other” and “smite them all”, I often come up with something that works.

So, with that in mind, here are my thoughts on creating a positive, empowering and mother & baby friendly breastfeeding environment. I focus on my local hospital, the IWK, and my province but the information I provide can be used by…

More Thoughts on Breast is Best: Guilt-led breastfeeding

Posted on November 25, 2010 at 5:30pm 0 Comments





As a vocal breastfeeding advocate, a sex educator and a supporter of survivors of sexual abuse during their childbearing year I have ask myself many times about the validity of “pushing” bf’ing. Yes, breastmilk is best, but if we guilt woman into breastfeeding aren’t we hurting the cause?

And what do I mean by cause? Is it a cause? If we stopped pushing Breast Is Best as if it was a winning hearts and minds military campaign…

The Breast is Best Campaign in Nova Scotia- Is It Working?

Posted on November 25, 2010 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

I used to believe that breast is always best. I gave the stink eye to bottlefeeding moms, I towed the Breast is Best partyline.

I was wrong.

I passionately believe that breastmilk is the optimal food for your baby. That part is based on science and economics, not opinion. But is feeding your babe at the breast really best for every woman?

For me, as a sexual abuse survivor, breastfeeding was amazingly therapeutic. Breastfeeding my sons transformed my relationship with my…

First off best wishes from my house to yours for a Happy Thanksgiving. Let me welcome you from upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. Don't be too overwhelmed by MBC. The ladies are awesome here and sooo embracing. Hope you enjoy your stay :)
