Sabrina completed her first birth doula training workshop with DONA in April 2019. While she was formally trained to support clients after attending this initial workshop, and successfully did so, she wanted to expand and deepen her knowledge. Since training with DONA, Sabrina has completed further Birth and Postpartum Doula training through Doula Canada, with whom she is now completing a dual certification as a Birth and Postpartum Doula. Additionally, she is training to certify as a Childbirth Educator with Doula Canada. To supplement her formal doula training and to better support her clients, Sabrina has also taken additional training in
Prenatal Yoga, Pregnancy and Early Childhood Nutrition, and
Breastfeeding education for doulas.
In addition to her training as a Doula, she is also a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP), having earned a diploma with honours in Holistic Nutrition at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition.
Sabrina always dreamt that she would find a career in which she was able to deeply connect one on one with the people she was working with. A career that allowed her to practice active listening, emotional support, and holding space. It was halfway through studying Holistic Nutrition, while attending a lecture on nutrition during pregnancy, that she first heard about the role of a Doula. She knew in that instant that she had found her calling and since training has felt very much aligned and on the right path. It is a dream come true for her to support her clients through their pregnancy, labour, and postpartum journey. She believes that having the right support team during this time can make for a positive and empowering
Sabrina grew up in and around Toronto and moved up to Yellowknife in January 2020. She is incredibly excited to learn more about northern culture and to integrate herself into the community. She loves being outdoors and connecting with nature, connecting with herself through meditation and yoga, and connecting with others through cooking and sharing meals. She is deeply passionate about health, wellness and everything in between.
