Janice's Full Story
I took a few courses here and there and quickly realized
that maybe teaching wasn’t for me. I had
to really think about what I enjoyed, what I believed in, and what I wanted to
accomplish. It was then that I found out
about the Kinesiology program at the University
of Calgary. It was a perfect fit. I was (and still am) passionate about healthy
living, correct exercise techniques, and sport psychology. The Kinesiology degree, with a major in Mind
Sciences, gave me the knowledge to help people achieve their goals towards a
better, more healthy lifestyle.
I had both my children in Toronto and had such amazing birth experiences which sparked a passion to inform others that "good" labour and deliveries are possible! I began researching educational possibilities and came across CAPPA Canada through whom I became a Certified Childbirth Educator. I am excited to teach people in a safe, unbiased and fun environment about all aspects of pregnancy and labour. I also want people to know that there are choices available to them - natural, mainstream or somewhere in between! My childbirth classes have also shown me a need for breastfeeding help. So, I furthered my training and became a Certified Lactation Educator through the Simkin Centre at Bastyr University in Seattle. I am passionate about educating mothers (and partners) about all aspects of breastfeeding and I strive to help struggling moms achieve success.
Can’t wait to meet you!
