Doula About me:
My name is Catherine Brown and I am an Independent MACFE trained Professional Birth Doula and Professional Birth Photographer. I serve Winnipeg and surrounding areas.
My passion for birth comes from a deep sense of trust I have in the birthing process. This trust comes not only from birthing 3 of my own children but from being informed about best practices and all things birth. I trust birth. I personally have had 3 very different birth experiences and all 3 of these births have helped me to grow as a mother, a woman and into the doula that I am proud and honoured to be today.
Professionally, I have experience with hospital birth, home birth, caesarean birth and VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean). I support families whether their journey includes a medicated or an unmedicated birth. I offer assistance in planning and preparation for the birth of your baby whether that be a planned home birth, planned birth centre birth or a planned hospital birth. I can also assist in preparation and plans to VBAC and/or working towards a healing birth.
I believe that birth can be beautiful, sacred and life changing. It can also be challenging and exhausting. As a doula my role is to support women and their families emotionally, physically and spiritually during one of the most important times of their lives. This includes pregnancy, labour, birth and the postpartum period. In addition I offer support to women in their decisions about their pregnancy and the birth of their child. I help and encourage women to find their inner strength, and to have joyous and empowering births that will remain with them always.
“My dream is that every woman, everywhere, will know the joy of a truly safe, comfortable, and satisfying birthing for herself and her baby.” ~Marie Mongan
As well as a professional birth doula I also offer professional birth photography.
