In the news again!

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to pass along another news note.  After the overwhelming response to the CBC coverage, I was contacted by and they wanted an interview.  I find it very interesting that all of this has happened and feel very grateful for all of the support that I have been given.
Have a read, more updates to come.  New website is so close!!!

Summer has arrived....well sort of.

I realize that it has been a while but I am still alive and well. Garden is in and doing well and my manimals are doing their thing tearing up the place. I am in the process of developing my Man Doula business and will let everyone know when the new website is up and running! These things take time to make sure they are done right the first time. I would like to share a picture of something my wonderful wife made me in celebration of being certified by DONA. They best part was watching the boys figure out what part to eat!
Hope it makes you smile on this grey old day. Enjoy the weekend and stay tuned!

Long time coming

I hope that this finds everyone doing well.  As spring has arrived, fingers crossed, I would like to share some news that has been a long time coming. I have received confirmation today that I am officially a certified Birth Doula through DONA International. I am very excited and grateful to all of those  who have supported me during my training, the families that were willing to give me a chance on my doula journey and able to see what a man doula could bring to their experience. Most of all I would like to thank my family for being so patient and supportive during my journey.  I look forward to continuing to be part of the birth community as the 1st male to be DONA certified in Canada!!!!!!!!

Thank you all very much and you will hopefully hear more soon.

Your Man Doula

My side of the Change Table Has been BUSY

I realize that I am probably not the best at keeping on top of the blog, but the reality is..... I am living life, spending time with the manimals.  No excuses just the truth.  The summer is always a busy time in all of our lives and we want to soak up every last bit of sunshine and warm temperatures that we can.  As we move into the cool, crisp and colourful fall, we enjoy the transition that nature is making and prepare for what is to come.  My wood is cut, split and stacked.  Summer manimal toys packed away and the fall/winter playthings are making their way into regular rotation, gardens still producing and oh right, paperwork for doula certification getting done!!  Getting ready in Fall is a very wonderful thing and as I continue my doula journey, there is much to be thankful for.  I am almost at the finish line to being certified and then we will see where this man doula road leads.
I hope that all of you that come across this are able to go outside and enjoy the colour of the season.
