Labour, birth, and breastfeeding have been her passions since expecting her first daughter in 1996. After the birth of her son she was convinced her second calling was to become a doula (her first of course being a wife and mother!). Contact: and 519.994.0701

Casey Berard is a mom to 2 kids, one of whom was a premie baby. She is an acupuncturist and does spiritual body work. She is also trained in prenatal yoga. She has attended 4 births. I’ve asked Casey to share how to have a satisfying hospital birth and breastfeeding after a premie baby.
