I'm thrilled to have two lovely ladies as guest speakers and exhibitors from DEME Pre and Postnatal Services at our Spring Busy Bump Baby Shower. Dani is a birth doula and Keyrsten is a Registered Holistic Nutrionist. They have lots of great information to share with everyone!
Dani Enskatis, Birth Doula
I have played an active role in the nurturing and development of British Columbian children for over 12 years. As a professional working in the Early Child Care Education industry, my experience working with families and the community inspired me before taking on what I would describe as the most important role of my life: being a mother to my two children, Micah and Amielia. Using a midwife and doula for both my pregnancies, I felt an immediate connection to these institutions of healthy and natural pregnancy and childbirth. A certified Doula, I am able to use my knowledge, training, and experience to provide emotional and physical support to mothers and fathers-to-be. The support of a Doula during pregnancy and childbirth allows you the best chance at creating positive memories that will last a lifetime. I am fully committed to making each birth a wonderful experience-working to reassure you and your partner during labour through the suggestions of comfort measures and techniques, reassurance, and support. In no way does the presence of a Doula replace the support of a partner, instead my presence allows your partner to participate and be involved during this exciting time. No question or concern is too small, and with each birth I attend, I am so excited to be a part of an experience that will forever be a changing event in your life.
