CanadaCity: Calgary, Alberta Name: Laurie McGowan Email: email@example.com Website: www.AdventuresOfLittle.ca Congratulations on your pregnancy! Education is empowering! Women have the most amazing and complex systems when it comes to pregnancy, birth, and parenting. Simplicity and knowledge are the secrets to a great birth experience and beyond. Whether you are under the care of a midwife, OBGYN, or Family Doctor, I will help you ask the right questions and prepare your minds, souls, and bodies for the awesome experience of becoming a parent. I’ve experienced both a medicated birth and a natural birth with my two daughters and believe me, there was a huge difference. We were able to enjoy breastfeeding from the start and my mental health was stronger. I believe in baby wearing from birth, as well ensuring we are doing our best to keep our baby’s world green with cloth diapers and carefully chosen products and gear. I’ll be teaching classes in Calgary, and the surrounding areas are more than welcome to attend!

My name is Gabriela Wilkon. I have always been fascinated with the human body. After completing an Honours degree in Health Science and Kinesiology, I got a taste of the wonder, order and strength of the body. When I experienced a repetitive strain injury from treeplanting I practiced yoga slowly and continuously at home, this is what got me walking pain free again. Years later when I was pregnant, I had an intuitive knowledge that with support I could birth at home. I am now the mother to two wild, happy boys, 2 years apart, that were both born at home with midwives. Alongside natural childbirth, I also practice Holographic Kinetics, which deals with clearing fear and trauma from past experiences that may come up during or be caused by childbirth. My goal is to empower couples with the education, tools and nurturing environment they need to have a satisfying pregnancy and a love-filled birth. Birth can be transformative and empowering.
