In addition to owning Midwifery Supplies Canada and Mama Goddess Canada, Jill Colpitts is also a DONA certified birth doula and a CPR/first aid instructor. She provides support to mothers in Vancouver, Burnaby, and the North Shore. She is also a member of the Doula Services Association of BC.
I have a passion for supporting families through pregnancy, birth,
and the early postpartum period. This passion was ignited when I
attended my first birth in May, 2007. Soon afterward, I took both the
birth and postpartum doula courses at Douglas College, and certified
with DONA international. I have since then
also received my Water Birth Credentialing certificate from Water Birth
International, and training to assist moms that are choosing hypnosis
My husband Paul and I (along with our doula and midwives) welcomed a daughter into the world from a birth pool in our apartment in February, 2009. It was a powerful, life-changing experience. Since then, I have had a desire to learn and observe more about water immersion for labour and birth. In October, 2009, I attended a waterbirth credentialing workshop from Waterbirth International.
When I support families through childbirth, I strive to create a birthing environment where the mother feels safe, and in control of her surroundings and experience. When birthing women feel safe and empowered, they are better able to relax and surrender to the birthing process. Childbirth is something a woman remembers for the rest of her life. This is something that I always keep in mind as I support families through this amazing journey.
