As a fertility support practitioner, full spectrum doula, and scholar my job is to help you gain the knowledge and tools you need in order to advocate for your choices, identify your preferences, and plan your next steps.
Often in our family building journeys, we don’t know what questions to ask or who to ask them to. We don’t always have the information we need in order to know where to go or who to see.
Through education, one-on-one support, and recommendations and referrals, my job is to help you feel more secure in identifying your preferences, coping with stress, and communicating your needs.
Prior to your consultation with a fertility clinic, we will discuss questions to ask nurses or doctors to determine best fit for you.
Integrating both education and emotional support, together we will review fertility options and interventions and strategize next steps in your journey.
Assistance in reviewing donor options, selecting donors (known or unknown), and preparing communication strategies (known donor).
Educational sessions focus on a. range of elements in the reproductive journey, taking an evidence-based approach to understanding our bodies and fertility processes, and procedures.
I am a certified fertility support practitioner and full spectrum doula helping people navigate all stages of their perinatal journeys. Currently, as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Victoria in the School of Public Health and Social Policy, I work on community-engaged cross-disciplinary projects related to reproductive health equity and access to care. I am also a lecturer at the University of Toronto and have taught at various universities across Canada in the humanities and public health.
My eclectic background in research and community support has provided me with unique tools for exploring sexual and reproductive health equity, 2SLGBTQ+ culture, and barriers to accessing reproductive care in Canada. I have published two collected volumes (Women and Popular Culture in Canada and Queerly Canadian) and am currently working on my third text with Fernwood Publishing on 2SLGBTQ+ Family Building in Canada.
In addition to one-on-one supports, I deliver workshops and lectures for healthcare providers, clinics, and universities on inclusive fertility and family building practices.
