Megan Burnside

Trained Birth Doula 902-940-5961 burnside.meg@gmail.com

Megan Burnside was trained as a DONA birth doula in 2013. She sees a need for improved support for expecting families, especially in PEI, where midwifery attended births are currently not possible. In 2017, she gave birth to her son, and her doula's support throughout pregnancy and labour reconfirmed her belief that doulas can have a huge positive impact on the birth and postpartum experience. She wants all women to feel informed, empowered and supported during pregnancy, labour and postpartum, and sees her role as a doula as doing just that.

In her spare time, Megan volunteers with the Midwifery Advocacy group, gardens and runs an AirBnB. She is trained as a potter, and will soon find some time for that again too!

Trained Birth Doula 902-856-1828 peidoulaservices@gmail.com www.facebook.com/peidoulaservices

I am a mother of 3. I have trained with Doula Training Canada and am so excited to bring more awareness and power to Momma's in PEI. I have given birth at home in Ontario and in a hospital in PEI so I can relate to moms looking for a more "natural" birth.

I want moms and dads to feel empowered and productive throughout the birth process. This is why I do what I do.

Abi Totty BSc Hom

Sacred Birth Doula Womb Wisdom Educator Reiki Master & Homeopath 902-303-4977 info@abitotty.com www.facebook.com/abitotty www.abitotty.com

I am a Doula with over 15 years experience, a classically trained Homeopath, Womb Wisdom educator & Reiki Master. My passion for birth-tending began with the birth of my eldest son. It was the most profound spiritual and empowering moment of my life. I was inspired to dive deeper, exploring all aspects of the sacredness of birth and traditional midwifery. 

 I weave Homeopathy, Reiki and Womb Wisdom into birth-tending giving me many tools to utilize during the journey from conception to birth. I offer this work without judgement and with the intention to facilitate births that are transforming and dignified. I know that babies born in peaceful circumstances, to informed, conscious parents, have the best chance of growing into healthy adults.

Homeopathy naturally supports women through all aspects of pregnancy, birth and beyond. It is safe, non-toxic, works very quickly, is capable of treating deep pathology as well as emotional distress. It is used by midwives all over the world; in India & parts of Europe it is used routinely in Obstetrics.
