Meranda Bos is a born and raised Prairie girl from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Sticking true to her roots, she gave birth to 4 beautiful babies (Brandon, Kirsten, Jaclynn & Jesslyn), who are now creative and talented children and young adults, forging their paths in life. In 2007, Meranda decided to make the big leap to move to Fort McMurray, where she worked onsite in her hard hat and steel toes. When it was time to take her leave to have baby #5 (Jase), she decided that once this baby was a toddler, it was time for her to begin sharing her wisdom and experience in birthing with Wood Buffalo families. After all, we are in a baby boom, and most of us are far from home without our own family for support.
In Jase’s first year, Meranda selflessly dedicated her time to volunteer at Vilia Tosio’s breastfeeding support groups. Being a fifth time breastfeeder, she knows a thing or two. It was while attending group that she cultivated her next steps in life. She joined the Leadership Wood Buffalo program and became actively involved in the Wood Buffalo Baby-friendly Initiative. Meranda understands how to wear multiple hats. In her community she is an advocate for attachment parenting, midwifery and exclusive breastfeeding. In the birth room, she is an advocate for her clients’ birth wishes, working hand in hand with our very busy and well respected medical community.
When Meranda isn’t chasing a busy preschooler or spending time with her hubby, she makes sure to find time to refill her cup, so that in turn she may pour more of her energy into others. She enjoys hitting a local yoga class to relieve stress or quietly setting up her mat for a peaceful and meditative home practice. Meranda decided to deepen her own yoga practice that she recently completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Kaitlin Armstrong and Pattie Dwyer(www.inbalanceforlife.com) as well as she has completed her Reiki Level One with Dwyer Family(aquarianyogis.weebly.com)
Meranda is the founder of “Yo Momma” Doula Services and has completed her CAPPA birth doula training. She is now accepting birth clients. We feel lucky to have her as a part of our Higher Health Doula Cooperative and look forward to supporting her growing career as a Professional Birth Doula.
