Nicole Anderson

Birth & Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator, Certified Car Seat Technician (CPSAC)

Welcome to The Stork's Nest! My name is Nicole and I am a mother to two beautiful boys. I feel so lucky to have a wonderful husband and family who support my insanely busy schedule.   

After having a less than pleasant labour and birth experience with my first child, one filled with many complications, I so desperately wanted to change the outcome for the birth of my second son. While my second birth experience was better in so many ways, I realized that what I was craving the most was the emotional support and reassurance as well as physical comfort during my labour. If I could have a "do-over", the one thing I would change would be the addition of a Doula!  I wish my much younger self knew more about Doula's and all that they have to offer!  

In addition to being a birth and postpartum Doula and a fully insured member of the Association of Ontario Doulas, I am also a childbirth educator and certified car seat technician with the Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada. I have spent 20+ years working with children as a Dance Educator and I graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from York University.  Some of my studies included Dance, Kinesiology, Human Anatomy, Psychology and Pedagogy to name a few. 

 

My own birth experiences coupled with being present as a labour coach for some very important ladies in my life helped me to find my calling.  I was a Doula and I didn't even know it!  I love being able to provide knowledge and un-biased support to women and their families during the most momentous occasion in their lives and I feel so fortunate to get to share in the birth experiences of so many brave and beautiful women.
