Hi, I’m Trisha! I’m married to a teacher and together we have our 2 children, and we’ve found a sense of community in Lacombe. I have a background in health care and enjoy serving others. I really enjoy hands on support. Education is something I have always pursued and I enjoy taking additional classes related to the birth and breastfeeding world when I can.
I began my Doula journey when I was pregnant with our first child. It was something I wanted for my own births. Soon after my son was born, I did my DONA training in 2013. Being at home with young children made me appreciate the supports available to me. I became involved with La Leche League Canada, which provides mother-to-mother breastfeeding support and became an accredited LLLC Leader in 2016. A sense of community, especially in the parenting world, was something I constantly sought out and I help others to connect with resources in Central Alberta. In 2015, I started the Lacombe Mom2Mom Event and it has been growing ever since.
In 2017, I became a Certified Birth and Bereavement Doula through StillBirthday (SBD) and started taking doula clients. Recently I have upgraded my Red Deer Doula Association membership status from Associate to Active! I hope that I am able to support many more birth experiences in Central Alberta.
I am passionate about the birth and parenting world. I am passionate that you are cared for, and hope you feel safe no matter what way you birth. I have experience in hospital and home birth. I have been fortunate to experience working with a surrogate, singletons and twins, unmedicated and medicated births, premies, induction and spontaneous deliveries, Midwives and Physicians.
