Yvonne Pelling

Certified Montreal Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula

It was on my journey to motherhood that I realized the deep transformation and impact that childbirth can have on women, men and families. For me, birthing children has been more than magical. It has brought many gifts into my life, laughter, tears, an overabundance of joy and stillness.   It has been through these experiences that I have become instinctively in tune with the process of birth.

The wisdom of pregnancy and birth
have become a true inspiration for me.

Becoming a doula was a clear path for me as I have always felt strongly connected to work that strives to empower and heal people. Having previously made the leap from corporate chaos to the caring community I was able to use my experiences to grow and develop as a doula. I believe that every pregnancy and birth is unique and as such I want to nourish clients in a way that prepares them for their upcoming birth and growing family. My recent experience in acupressure, robozo and yoga nidra workshops for birth have allowed me to develop my practice. Irrespective of your birthing choices or personal beliefs I offer whole-hearted support for all women and their families. I am passionate about supporting people on their journey through the childbearing year and am truly honoured to be doing this work. I invite you to contact to me if you would like to discuss how I can help you achieve your ideal birth.
