Angela Maes

Angela has supported hundreds of families in birth since 2002 as a Birth Doula. As the years have gone by she has expanded her skill set with specialized training and certifying as a Childbirth Educator and Postpartum Doula. Her lifelong love of learning led her to develop curriculum currently used by midwives for Childbirth Education classes in her city and she has found great joy in mentoring other Doulas and facilitating unique workshops for birth workers within her community.

Shortly after becoming a certified Doula, Angela came across the work of Gail Tully on her newly launched Spinning Babies website and quickly put into practice what she learned with her own clients. First hand, she was able to see the positive results of the Spinning Babies techniques. That enthusiasm for Spinning Babies led her to join other like-minded peers on a committee to have SB Trainer Tammy Ryan come to Winnipeg for two consecutive years and steered her on the path to formally being trained as a Spinning Babies Parent Educator.

With her Doula partner Bree-Ann, Angela is thrilled to be guiding families to find comfort in pregnancy and joy in birth at their Spinning Babies Parent Class and through their Doula practice.

 “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
