I was the child who didn't enjoy watching children's shows on TV, but instead wanted to watch 'A Baby Story' or 'Bringing Home Baby' on TLC. And I was the student who secretly didn't look away when they showed the birthing video in high school biology while everyone else was hiding their eyes.
I have always been obsessed with pregnancy and birth so I decided to make a career out of it! I love being able to educate families on the birth process and being by their side during this monumental time in their lives. I love supporting and encouraging mamas, and I love being a light to those that I serve.
I am a CAPPA certified labor doula and have helped many families during their journey's to parenthood. In person, I serve the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan area, but offer distance doula services and resources worldwide.

Here are some fun facts!
I am a certified labor doula and birth educator. I provide in-person doula services within the Saskatoon area but provide doula services, free resources, and education online so people far and wide can have the birth of their dreams!
As a doula, my goal for you is to have a satisfying birth experience. This includes working hard during pregnancy to help your body prepare for labor and childbirth. Some of the ways I do this is having an open communication policy with you, working with you so you go into labor feeling confident in your body's ability, and having additional resources available so you can feel prepared for labor. I have also created a referral network of medical professionals that can help you during pregnancy and beyond.
When it is time for labor, I am there to serve you and your partner in any way I can. I help create the sacred space that is needed in labor, I advocate for you, and I listen to you. Simply stated - I work for YOU!
Baillie's calm, reassuring voice throughout pregnancy & birth was so helpful! She was knowledgeable & educated us on what to expect so we weren't afraid going in. Throughout labor, she helped cope with the contractions & supported Mike in knowing what to do. She went above & beyond in providing support & education for us! - Jessica, 2020
Baillie helped me have my dream birth! When I first got pregnant I didn't think I could have an un medicated birth based off birthing horror stories of those I know. But all of Baillie's education and support really empowered me to trust my body and the natural birthing process. I ended up having a calm, peaceful and clear labour and delivery.
- Miranda, 2020
I can't recommend Baillie enough. She was a wonderful support prior to and in labour & delivery. She encouraged me, and physically helped/supported me as much as she could during L&D. There aren't words to really say how much her support meant. I went on to have a natural delivery, which would not have been possible without hers and my husband's support & encouragement. - Melissa, 2019
If you're looking for a supportive, professional and passionate doula you've stumbled upon a real gem with Baillie. She was a vital piece to my pregnancy and labor. I really couldn't have imagined any of it without her. - Megan 2019
Baillie was a great support, available for whatever and whenever we needed something. Baillie will be a great asset to the birthing team.
- Heather, 2018
Very helpful. Explained the birth to our daughter, helped her understand and participate in the birth.
- Patrick 2018
Baillie is very respectful and asked about areas to assist in a helpful manner. - Midwife 2018
