A few notes
Based on frequent inquiries I receive…
For organizations & allies:
Please do not ask Indigenous people for free labour. If your organization/project has the budget to pay you, it has the budget to pay me too. Exploiting Indigenous wisdom is not reconciliation. If you provide an honoraria, please include the rate.
I am not interested in “Indigenizing” your nearly-finished project/work. My approach is relational; I work best when I am meaningfully engaged from the start of the process and I see my involvement reflected in the outcome.
For Indigenous folks:
Indigenous families - please reach out even if you think cost may be a barrier to receiving doula care.
Indigenous students and birth workers - I am always happy to have a conversation with you! Let’s chat.
Indigenous scholars and professionals - I am keen to collaborate and learn from one another. Thank you for the work you do.
