In addition to owning Midwifery Supplies Canada, Jill Colpitts is also a birth doula, FertilityCare Practitioner Intern and a CPR/first aid instructor. She provides support to mothers in Vancouver, Burnaby, and the North Shore.About Jill:
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 for labour.
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. In April, 2013, I gave birth to my son at home in our big green Aquaborn birth pool, and it proved to be as grounding and empowering as his sister's birth.
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.
