Who is

 Naomi the   Postpartum Doula?

Naomi is one grateful gal that you are here, reading this!

First off, Naomi acknowledges that she is a white cisgender settler, working in and calling home the City of Hamilton, which is situated upon the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Mississaugas. She acknowledges her unearned privilege as a white person earning a living on borrowed land. She is on the lifelong journey of pursuing kindness and human equity: challenging biases; learning and unlearning; seeking to amplify the representation, voices, and experiences of all who have been marginalized.

Naomi is a creative soul. She loves the uniqueness that can be found in everybody’s postpartum journey, and the flourishing that can happen with great support.

Naomi started her birthwork journey as a student midwife for 3 years. In that time, she learned and grew so much, and absolutely loved serving a vast diversity of clients in her junior placement in an urban clinic. Despite the love for the midwifery profession, she decided to follow her heart and the calling that emerged from this placement that more postpartum support was needed in society, and that she was needed for it. She then stepped away from midwifery and took her first Doula courses, then focused on becoming a Postpartum Doula. She is so grateful for the courage that it took to change path, because she adores this profession. She completed her certification of Postpartum and Infant Care Doula by ProDoula in May 2020.

She works for The Postpartum Nest (that she proudly founded in May 2020) as well as for Hamilton Family Doulas as part of their team since January 2019.

She is a family woman, with an adoring spouse and a fun-loving 9-month old babe at the time of writing. She loves to craft, bake and cake decorate, stay healthy (despite the sweet tooth), read/listen to books, and enjoy time outdoors (specifically in warm weather). She also loves the use of parentheses (can you tell?)

She very much looks forward to serving you and your family.

Happy Clients!

 "Naomi was always polite, caring, communicative, prompt, and followed-up with us regularly. We never felt forgotten or overlooked. She made us feel very at ease. She provided great support during her time with us. Thank you Naomi!"

 - A. W.

 "We have three kids who were all under 2.5 years old during our time with the Doula. Naomi worked through the night a couple nights per week to give my husband and I some rest, as we had toddler twins and the newborn to look after through the day. We couldn't have gotten through the days without the rest we got at night thanks to Naomi!"

 - B. F.

 "Naomi saved us! We had twins and really needed sleep. She gave us a break! She was/is kind, caring, compassionate, and understanding. We felt very comfortable leaving our boys with her which is rare, given we are new parents. She exceeded our expectations tenfold! My husband, myself, and our two boys love her!"

 - A. F.

"Having her serene presence and focus on me, the mom; reminding me to hydrate; listening; trying to find some solutions; was very soothing, and the other kids also felt more cared for, I believe. For a third time mom, it's so much more about the other children... It's so difficult to find time for myself, whilst having to take care of a newborn and worrying if the older ones will be a little left behind... no mom of more than one would enjoy the pampering and the attention and care if she felt not all the children were being looked after. So when Naomi minded them, it was bliss. In this context, not usually having the time for myself, the nutrition part was especially important. I was constantly reminded that for the family to be well, I had to prioritize my own wellbeing." - M. B.

my mission

Helping families have the supported
and transformative post-birth period that they deserve.

Imagine: You're in a pitch black room, and you know there is a door somewhere in that room. That door symbolizes sanity and wellness post-birth. Eventually, by feeling around, you will find the door-- despite obstacles along the way. I believe in you. But imagine how much easier it would be to find the door if there was a little candle by the door, guiding you and making you feel a little less lost and disoriented, and more confident.

That's what a having a Postpartum Doula is like.
