WHOLENESS SISTER

 

My name is Nidhi Seth and I am a Toronto & Vaughan- based Birth and Postpartum Ayurvedic Doula. I started my journey as a medical student in Europe for 8 years. Having seen the in's and out's of the medical system, I left school in pursuit for alternative holistic methods of healing and connection back to self. I came to the realization that the power to heal and push through adversity came down to the amount of hours of careful planning, education and support team present. Since leaving medical school, I began my own spiritual journey in search of knowledge to be reconnected to this divine miracle. 

I was first introduced to the incredible work of a Doula in 2017 and the impact that they have before, during, and after birth. I realized how crucial mental, emotional, and physical support is needed for the most physically enduring experience a labouring mother will ever go through. It became my duty to be able to create a safe & protective space for the birthing mother and their family, and to make sure she is heard, informed and making decisions from a place of empowerment and understanding. I was especially concerned when I was involved in deliveries in medical school, and witnessed how little information most mothers were given and how little their birthing choices were taken into account. This propelled me to support women and birthing families during the most important time in their lives.​

I knew there were many tools involved in creating a protective safe space, would allow families to feel like they were in charge of their journey. Helping them to advocate for their rights and know that they had choices. The nurturing and supporting component was so natural to me and I started to fall deeply in love with this beautiful journey. Since 2017 I have actively been a Doula and have helped over 70+ families in their birth and postpartum journey. Uniquely tailoring their specification, and what is most important to them.  I combine my western medical intuition and insight along with my ancient knowledge to bring you the most balanced and conscious journey you will embark on.
