Aleks here, and first off, thank you for visiting my page and showing interest in getting to know me more <3
I am so excited to be serving my community in the way that I am now. I started my career in supporting families in the perinatal period as a social worker in a hospital prenatal clinic. This was some of the best experience I could have possibly experienced and it led me to the independent work that I do now.
The one area of support that was missing for me as solely a social worker was supporting families in the birth room. And in walking with families in the antepartum and the postpartum period, I got countless reasons as to why this support was also needed.
So I decided to start training as a Doula and a year later I chose to venture off to work independently in my own business.
I now get to meet families in pregnancy and learn about their journey so far, their wishes for their birth, their fears- and we get to work throughout pregnancy to get them mentally in a place where they can create the experience they want. By this I mean their internal state, their emotional and mental wellness and their ability to cope with and feel good about how they treated themselves throughout the process of pregnancy and childbirth, and how they stepped into their power.
As I grow into a person living a healthy and empowered life myself, I also grow in the desire to support others in showing up in this way in their reproductive journey.
My most current adventure?
My partner and I decided to explore the world and to leave the hustle and bustle life of the west while we build our businesses and further explore our own passions. We have been living in the Costa Rica for the past few months, and cannot wait to see more of the world once things get back to normal.
Canada will always be our home, but we also believe that there is a home for us somewhere warmer, and a little closer to the ocean for us, a little more barefoot, forest and quiet...and we are determined to find it!
And that is the physical and emotional platform that I am coming to you from, to support you, virtually (and in person, if our paths align).
Enjoy some photos below, of some of the beauty I had the pleasure of witnessing in the last few months.
Welcome to my life, and I am so grateful to now be in yours.
