Now that my 'baby' is no longer a baby but a toddler, I am excited to announce that my maternity leave is ending soon! I am planning to start taking on call birth clients again, now in the Saskatoon area, for those due as early as March 2018 (I will not be ready take breastfeeding-counselor-only clients until later in 2018).
UPDATE AS OF OCTOBER 2, 2017:
Approaching this little dude's birthday, I am currently still on maternity leave and unable to accept any new birth doula clients at this time in the Saskatoon area in which we now live (our new home for the time being). I am finally able to resume my breastfeeding counselor studies, however, and anticipate being able to take on breastfeeding clients early in 2018!
2017 has been crazy so far! You'll find out why by reading below what I posted on Facebook on January 1, 2017:
"2017 has arrived! I am looking back on 2016 today, and what do I see? I see the blessings I was given - especially THIS one! This birth doula had her 3rd baby (here with us) and I thought this day was a good one to share him with all of you! He was born October 28th and his name is Gabriel. What a wonderful year it has been!
As I look at 2017, I also have an announcement to make. At the end of January our family is going to be moving away from Southeast Saskatchewan, and as a result, Bundle of Love Birth Services will be moving locations too. Since I am also currently on my own maternity leave it may take a while to operate again in a new location, and we do not yet know where we will end up.
However, you can expect that I will continue to occasionally post on this FB page and eventually update here and on my website when we are back in operation again :) In the new year I also hope to resume and complete my breastfeeding counselor studies and certification process to provide even greater support to families at this time of their lives."
