"The birthing body is a gateway to bringing life into our world and that's a pretty big deal."

- Chantel Kismet

Chantel Kismet
Founder | Doula

Having been through a traumatic birth experience and severe postpartum depression, Chantel found her passion in birth work. Forced into having a cesarean without a chance to try for a natural birth, she made a switch of doctors at the eleventh hour and welcomed her daughter safely into this world.

She is committed to protecting couples' experiences through education and awareness. Chantel is passionate about helping couples connect deeper with each other, raising awareness for perinatal mental health, reducing birth trauma and breaking generational trauma to raise kind and empathetic children. 

 

Chantel believes that we all have the ability to create ripple effects of change in this world and it all starts from looking within ourselves.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy focuses on connection through self-discovery with ourselves and our partners, bodywork using movement and therapy, integration of evidence-based information and holistic approach and acceptance of your new body, role and relationship

Our experiences shape the way we see the world, how we bond with our partners and how we parent our children. Our practice focuses on self-discovery and inner healing, to bring out the best version of ourselves for our family. We emphasize the importance of building a strong, healthy relationship with yourself and your partner.

Bodywork

Using movement, touch therapy, massages and modalities from Optimal Maternal Positioning® and Spinning Babies®, we help you prepare your body for childbirth and learn how to navigate roadblocks during labour that may affect labour progression. We believe in using bodywork through yoga and breathing to rehabilitate your strength post birth.
