Brittany was born and raised in a small town in Alliston Ontario, which was known for their potatoes and their local fresh farm fields. She completed secondary school in Alliston and went on to further her education attending school for massage therapy at Georgian College. After being registered as an RMT in Ontario for a few years she decided to make the big change and follow the love of her life to come to Fort McMurray in the new year of 2014. She loves this crazy busy city and all the young families that are booming here!
In addition to supporting Mom’s in prenatal massage, Brittany always had the passion of understanding Mom’s and their fears/desires in labour. Being a massage therapist, you get to know your clients very well over a period of time! Providing prenatal massages is such an experience, getting to hear her client’s birth stories and feeling the baby move around while massaging was absolutely fascinating. Brittany always had an interest in pregnancy and birth but it wasn’t until she was present for her nephew’s birth that she knew Doula’ing was her true calling. She feels that being an RMT and a Doula is an incredible asset to pregnant and labouring mother’s in our community.
When Brittany heard there was the opportunity to take the CAPPA Birth Doula training course here in Fort McMurray she was thrilled. After attending this course Brittany was so excited to start her passion helping mothers with birth and with postpartum care. Brittany goes into the birth room with an open mind and heart and going with what you believe in and staying true to your self during this special time. She uses her knowledge in massage to alleviate pain and discomfort in birth by using a variety of massages techniques. She is a highly sought after addition to the birth room!
