  • You will have quality meals prepared and you shall be properly nourished.
  • You will have a tidy home and the laundry taken care of!
  • The postpartum doula can help older children adjust to the new baby since the parents can take a break from newborn duties and focus on their toddlers.
  • You will learn about co-sleeping and how to arrange a safe and healthy bedtime routine
  • You will learn how to baby-wear and wrap your newborn close to your body for their comfort and your peace of mind.
  • Help you navigate questions and advice given by your health care providers.
  • You will get professional lactation support and guidance. Jessica Bell, our lactation doula, is our main resource for families who choose to nurse their babies. Bottle-feeding advice and formula education can be provided from an evidence-based perspective.

Meet our Doulas

Adell J-Zeeben: Postpartum Doula

Growing up surrounded in a culture where birth trauma is normalized made life feel hopeless as a young girl. I felt uncomfortable in my body and claimed I never wanted to have children of my own. Until I learned about physiological birth and the lights turned on.

When I discovered free-birth and I shifted my perspective from birth being something to be feared into a rite of passage that needs to be celebrated, a weight I had been carrying all my life had been lifted. I learned to love my body and honor it for all it was capable of. I free-birthed my son in the fall of 2022 and he has been a lovely companion and one of my greatest teachers. I knew I wanted more women to experience an easy transition into motherhood so I started 2023 off by going through the Wise Women Way of Birth Postpartum Doula training. I am so excited to support women through the postpartum period. Also, I am a huge breastfeeding advocate!

Sarah Helten: Postpartum & Miscarriage Doula

Sarah is a Mother of two boys 13 and 10 years old, and one spirit baby. She studies & practices psychic reiki, energy, art, and sound healing, and brings these practices into her services as a postpartum, and miscarriage doula. Sarah appreciates the common term used is Miscarriage, and inspires those to acknowledge this experience as an actual birth as well. She felt so lost for information, and support going through her own miscarriage, and became determined to create a service that could help women during this time.

Sarah realized she had a gift to share to create intuitive art as a source of communication between the Mother and unborn child while she was going through her own pregnancy loss, and felt deeply called to learn all she could. Sarah brings ceremony to the process of healing for postpartum mothers, and Mothers grieving the loss of a pregnancy through energy healing, nurturing acts of service around the home, holding space, music and sound, and spirituality. She adores creating supportive rituals that fit into everyday life, for the family unit, and for the Mother to empower her as the Matriarch of wisdom & love. Some of the training Sarah has completed to support her in this work are: Bereavement with Madison, Postpartum care with Wise Woman, Mikao Usui Reiki training, CBT/ DBT/ Depression/ and Anxiety Skills training, Confident Parent; Thriving kids program training, BCRPA Personal & Weight Training, Temple Body Arts Female Leadership training. & more…

Jessica Bell: Lactation Doula, Childbirth and Postpartum Educator

I am a plant-based mama who has always had a passion for empowering others to be their own advocate when it comes to their health and well-being. During my first pregnancy I received so much great education and information around pregnancy and birth, and not a lot about what to expect for postpartum. While I was prepared for the fourth trimester, I came to recognize that there are a lot of gaps in postpartum preparation and support for families, especially for the birth parent and I felt called to help others navigate this transformative and vulnerable time.

As a Lactation Doula I have been extensively trained in providing breastfeeding and bodyfeeding support through Shaz from Mama Milk. Our approach is focused on empowering the nursing parent to understand and trust their babies innate feeding capabilities right from birth. I help to simplify breastfeeding and bodyfeeding and give parents confidence with supporting their baby through the early days and beyond. I completed the 20 Hour Breastfeeding Course at Douglas College in June 2022 and completed my Lactation Doula Apprenticeship with Mama Milk in July 2023.

I am also passionate about connecting with families during pregnancy as a Childbirth and Postpartum Educator. The support I provide looks different for everyone, but my goals for each family are always the same; honouring the need for rest, and healing while learning to trust your intuition as a parent and bonding with your new baby. I completed my postpartum training with the Wise Women Way of Birth in November 2022 and I am currently continuing my Childbirth Educator path with The Childbearing Society.

Erin Lemon: Birth & Postpartum Doula

Building an intentional, supportive community is one of the greatest acts to creating a connected, informed and intuition-led pregnancy, birth and postpartum. It’s my privilege to help you and your birth partner step into birth and parenthood feeling confident, supported and present. I want you to feel heard, and treated as an individual; to access information that helps you make decisions in alignment with your goals and values. I’ve always found joy in service-led work, guiding me to a career in the social work field. After having my own babies, 16 & 13 years ago, I’ve gravitated to careers that encourage me to strengthen and honour my intuition as a woman and mother; nature, simplicity, intuition and time are my greatest guides. I’ve trained through Wise Women Way of Birth. I am continually learning from doulas and professionals in the birth community, parents I work with, and the abundance of research and resources that are available. I have been working with essential oils for 7 years and am happy to help you safely incorporate them into your pregnancy, birth, and low-toxin lifestyle. Working with me looks like creating your ideal birth and postpartum, navigating through (or around) the medical system, adapting to changes, sharing options, debriefing after appointments, and feeling cared for, while respecting your privacy. Dad’s and birth partners, I’m here to help you feel like you are a part of the process! I love a good, strong cup of coffee, walking in nature, spending time with my family, essential oils, camping, laughing and connecting with people, so I’m already looking forward to meeting you!

Brittany Bosch: Birth Doula, Medicine Woman, Registered Holistic Nutritionist

Brittany is passionate about holding space for women in their most vulnerable and expansive moments. Through times of pain and transition. Life’s most juicy moments. She is a Certified Doula and Registered Holistic Nutritionist. She is a channel for light language, a plant medicine ceremony facilitator, and energy/bodyworker. Having experienced the darkest corners life has to offer with her own health, she underwent a complete spiritual awakening.

With utmost gratitude for the teachings of the universe, she lives in a depth of intuition, compassion and grace for the unfolding of life. And she is here to hold space for all of it. All of you is welcome in her presence. She is a behavioral interventionist for children on the autism spectrum, and a nanny to babies. Her philosophy in birth keeping is being close enough to support you, your partner and your family, while disappearing into the shadows of your birth portal so that you know and feel that you have done this yourself. Crying softens the cervix. Your body knows what to do. Your partner knows how to support you, and has an important role in your birth process. Empowered mothers, empowered fathers, raise empowered children. And Brittany believes this begins with an empowered birth.

With a background as a competitive and professional dancer, Brittany is at home in her body, and knows how to assist your own personal process of energetically grounding into your own. For you to feel empowered, present, and in the depths of your ability to receive and work with the waves of the mystery of the universe working through you to birth your baby. Life comes with natural cycles of death and rebirth.

As you transition into motherhood, you are not only birthing your baby. You are also birthing your new sense of self, once a Maiden, now a Mother. And there is no going back. Brittany is here to connect you to your strength and presence, to hold you in sacred space. Working personally and professionally with plant medicines, she is well versed in the realms of ceremonial work. She holds space for people going through their darkness moments with plant medicine, and she considers birth to be a ceremony. There is power in the unknown, in the mystery, and your birth portal is an opportunity to claim and honor that. To build your warrioress strength and discover how powerful you truly are. To allow for your intensity to unleash in its raw and wild potency. A time to enter your divinely feminine dreamtime realm, to feel the oxytocin love awaiting you and your new family on the other side.

Tamara Starcevic: Postpartum Doula

Hello, my name is Tamara, I have studied and absorbed the wisdom of birth and served women and their families for seven years. I began my birth doula studies through Wise Woman Way of Birth with Gloria Lemay and then with the late Jessica Austin. I then mentored with Jill Colpitts for a year, completed my breastfeeding course with Shaz Tayebi and my postpartum training through Motherwit with Lesley Everest. I am an eternal student of birth with the utmost respect and fascination towards the process.

Birth is a doorway that opens you to the path of motherhood; a very honourable and underappreciated role, that will teach you to ultimately be selfless, in the most challenging, heart opening and bizarre ways. My role is to help support you throughout that process, should you choose to birth with a traditional birth attendant, or in the early postpartum days until your body has had the time to recover from childbearing.

My postpartum support is a mixture of: helping you choose the proper foods and herbs for optimal recovery and nourishment; teaching you all about how to care for your newborn; and helping you with the possible nuances of breastfeeding. I will spend time with your baby and/or your other children so you can have a bath or a nap and I will make sure your daily tasks are taken care of. I am also there to be a listening ear if you need someone to process the birth with or simply share what a delight the whole experience was.

A postpartum doula is what our aunts, mothers, sisters and friends did for us before our modern world made us all so busy. The difference is however, that the boundaries are already established in a professional relationship; my feelings will absolutely not be hurt if you do things how you want, in fact, I will encourage that. So many of us here in Canada are immigrants, far away from our families with no support, other than our partner, who is also naturally exhausted after the birth. You can just simply relax and let me help, allow your mind and body to heal and bask in your new baby, as one should after gloriously bringing a new human into the world.

I look forward to serving you.

Katie Heine Litz: Postpartum Doula

I am a mum to a beautiful daughter (our rainbow baby girl), and a postpartum doula who will soon be offering prenatal services as well. I support those in their transformational postpartum time, honouring the mother’s pivotal rite of passage and helping your home run smoothly when baby arrives so you can have the time to rest, heal and cherish this precious season. I can help you however you most need: from looking after your sweet baby (and older children) while you rest, to cleaning your home and prepping nutritious foods, to holding space for you as you move through this pivotal and incredibly important season, and more.

I have completed the Wise Woman Birth and Postpartum Doula trainings, Mandy Verghese’s Wombspace massage workshop, approach life with a holistic and natural viewpoint, and I also have extensive and firsthand knowledge of walking through pregnancy, birth and postpartum with Type 1 Diabetes. I am also trained in the art of Indian Head Massage and love to share this relaxing and healing modality as part of my offerings. I believe you deserve to have an empowered pregnancy and birth, and a calm, nourished and restoring fourth trimester, and would love to help make this happen for you. The journey of growing your baby, bringing them earthside, and caring for and nourishing them once they’re here is one that deserves to be celebrated. You are miraculous!

With a passion for supporting new families during the precious postpartum period, I am a dedicated and experienced postpartum doula with 5 years of hands-on experience. Known for my nurturing personality, knowledge and compassionate approach, I strive to provide comprehensive and personalized support to new parents as they navigate the beautiful journey of parenthood.

I speak and write in different languages fluently.

My experience ranges from assisting first-time parents to offering guidance to those welcoming their second or third child. Through my work, I have developed an in-depth understanding of the challenges and joys that come with the postpartum period.
