Want to know what fills my cup? Helping people see how worthy, known, and loved they are. Celebrating them for who they are and encouraging them along the way. Helping them believe that their wildest dreams can come true. If I can help just one person in my lifetime, I will consider it a life worth lived.
Oh! And if you ever offer me a chai latte with almond milk, you may just become my new best friend!
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 because I was fascinated!
I have always been obsessed with pregnancy and birth so I decided to make a career out of it! It is my passion to educate couples not only on the birth process but educating them the multitude of options they have during their birth experience. Being able to offer support and encouragement during a birth experience is an honour like no other and an opportunity I don't take lightly.

Here are some fun facts!
I am a CAPPA 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!
I would choose Baillie a million times over. She is open to what you want and supports you along that path. She is a great communicator and cares so much about everything including how every doctor's appointment goes. She is the best support system because she is so understanding and always finds the positive in everything. She has a bag of tips and tricks I'm so grateful I learned about. She replies quickly and makes you feel safe, heard and cared for. In the delivery room, she is there for not only you, but your birth partner too. I truly would never want to go through pregnancy, labor & delivery without a doula. Baillie is exceptional and it's so obvious she is passionate about what she does. I highly recommend Baillie!
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 Y.
We chose Baillie because her beliefs and attitudes towards birth were very similar to ours. The prenatal classes were very educational and helped us to learn coping techniques we didn't know about and how my husband can best support me during the birth process. As well, the ability to call or text with Bailie 24/7 was very important and made us feel more at ease that we had her to reach out to about anything we needed. The ongoing support and encouragement was amazing. On the day I was induced she made us feel relaxed and excited to get things going, she even brought us Booster Juices to kick start the induction which was so kind of her. We felt very comfortable with Baillie, she is truly a gift from heaven and we couldn't have had the amazing experience that we did if it wasn't for her. - Mellisa W
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 L
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 F
I am so glad we chose Baillie as our doula! She is very client centred and listens to your wants and needs without being overbearing or trying to solve your problems for you. Baillie provides information, knowledge and experience to help you make your own decisions. She is kind, gentle and the friend you need when things get tough! Thank you so much! -Rennelle O
