Deanna Alves

Ayurvedic Doula 

Deanna’s journey into birth-work began a few years ago when she read an article about the importance of doulas while working as an Assistant English Teacher in Spain. This was her introduction to the role of a doula as she was not aware this support was even available. Feeling deeply inspired, she moved back to Canada to pursue this calling as she has always felt a strong desire to nurture and help others.  


She offers heart-centered care to families before, during and after their birthing experience as well as; provides tools to help birthers empower themselves and heal during this sensitive time. She believes that the birth and postpartum period is one of the most important times in a persons life and how a birther is treated during this time will impact for years to come. As an Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, her focus is primarily on nourishing the birther by using healing and rejuvenation practices based in the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda. In her practice, she incorporates the variety of holistic healing

Giovanna Aiello


Long before I gave birth to my own child, this was what I always wanted to do. Even as a child I was obsessed with baby bellies and how it all worked. The gift to grow life from scratch is an amazing blessing and a miraculous journey. And experiencing pregnancy, labour and birth myself taught me everything I needed to know to start my journey as a doula. I love birth. I love pregnancy and my passion is for every woman to be treated with respect, tenderness, and skill during her labor and birth, and for all couples to draw closer together as they celebrate their new families. I thank my daughter everyday for inspiring me to do what I love. She is my greatest teacher.

Tanicia Reedon


Tanicia’s passion to become a Doula came to her at the age of 13 when her mother was pregnant with her sister. Experiencing first hand the ups and downs that flowed from pregnancy to birth (…and beyond), cemented her desire to care for mom and baby. After (literally) bumping into a midwifery student on the TTC one day she realized she could turn her passion into a career.

With 2 teenaged sisters at home she is the unofficial “period expert” in her family and among friends. She is fiercely passionate about social justice issues especially those that affect women, and has led women’s health seminars and ‘Lunch n Learn’ sessions at previous jobs. Tanicia LOVES to travel and has lived and worked with families in Italy and Spain; as well as volunteered in Germany, Ukraine and India.

Ashley Cullum


I’m Ashley Cullum, I have been passionate about the birth process, since being pregnant with my first child, 17 years ago.  I was completely terrified of being pregnant and thinking of birthing, then being responsible to parent a human! 

I was able to find a wonderful set of Doula’s who helped me navigate whatever I was desiring as my birthing experience and having a good base of knowledge for newborn care.  They helped me overcome my fears of breastfeeding (and almost giving up)  Being a teenage mom I was able to take the knowledge and experience they gave me to become the mother I am today. 

I went on to have three more births (one of which was to complete a beautiful family). It is a lifetime’s worth of passionate and personal knowledge and experience that I bring into every setting.  I am excited to take this journey with you.

And I loved all of it."  The value of family was something that I Ferenaz was grateful to have in her life. It became fitting that Ferenaz chose to focus her photography on birth, maternity and newborn life. She knows first hand that this is the time when family begins for so many expectant and new parents.  She feels every person and every picture in her heart. For Ferenaz, the the greatest joy comes when you create something that is meaningful to others. This is a time to honour and celebrate your family and and would be grateful to pleasure to help you do just that.
