bits and pieces.

Marj is a DONA International certified doula. She is trained in acupressure for labour by the Canadian Gynecology Institute of Chinese Medicine (CGICM), as well as completed a workshop through the Rebozo Connection on the Gena Kirby Method. Marj is a certified Blooma Prenatal Yoga Instructor which is fitting along side her previous certification as a Bikram Yoga Instructor and doula work.

Marj has had two amazing homebirths and birthed two beautiful children.  Since about the age
of 14 years old, she knew that if she had children she would have them at home.

Marj teaches Bikram Hot Yoga, which she practiced consistently throughout both her pregnancies,
and attributes her happy, healthy pregnancies in large part to this method.

Marj is fascinated with childbirth and everything that goes along with it. She had both her
placentas encapsulated and she even documented the whole thing. Yep, she’s that person!
She was thrilled and very grateful to have met Ina May, the most amazing midwife and birth
advocate of our time.

Marj specializes in yoga and birth and postpartum doula support. It is her vocation to help
like-minded women find the resources, tools, skills, and support to prepare their minds and bodies
for the grand magical adventure of labour and birth.

She also offers consultations in Infant Potty Training and Elimination Communication.
She started potty training her daughter at five and a half months, and by eighteen months Gemma was fully trained, including night time.

“I believe that every woman is capable of birthing a baby, and that women’s bodies were designed for giving birth. It is truly one of the most empowering experiences a woman can go through, and is a sacred piece in the puzzle of enlightenment. That is the ongoing, never-ending journey of parenthood. Breathe it down, Mommas.”
