Naturopathic Doctor, Birth Doula and Reiki Practitioner
As a naturopathic birth doula, Dr. Jessica has experience working cooperatively with midwives, obstetricians, family physicians and nursing staff to assist women and their partners before, during and after the birth of their child. Dr. Jessica is a mother herself and recognizes birth as a vital, vulnerable, & beautiful experience in the life of a mother and family. Her goal is to ensure she has a complete understanding of mom-to-be's values and aspirations for her birth in order to offer her and her partner the information, emotional and physical support they require to have the most positive birth experience possible and an easy transition into parenthood.
Dr. Jessica is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and the University of Ottawa (Bachelor of Science Degree with Honours, Biopharmaceutical Science). She is an instructor for the Naturopathic Doulas training course for Naturopathic Doctors in Ontario interested in learning to integrate their naturopathic doctor training in a labour and birth setting and is the creator of the well-known Baby Bloomers program, an on-line program designed for couples going through fertility issues.
When not busy in the Clinic, Dr. Jessica enjoys spending time in nature, living simply, practicing yoga and exploring her artistic side. You can often find her cooking delicious plant-based meals or reading with her cup of Matcha. She loves spending time with her family, two busy boys, and dog Maple.
