About

Strength in Support

Hi there!

My name is Chelsea Sinnicks,

I am the woman on the right there grinning like it is the best day of my life.
This rockstar family is hanging out with their new baby girl just 20 minutes after giving birth. They were so strong and had so much love for eachother, and she, well she birthed like a goddess.
As for me, I'm a young women's rights and birth advocate.  When you are hiring a doula you are also hiring someone who will be part of probably the most intimate and intense experience of your life. That being said it is very important that you feel comfortable with your doula and that your doula makes a good fit with you and your family.
In birth my philosophy is love wins, and whatever variation that comes in for your family is what I follow. 
I support all variations of families from lgbtq, poly, trans, single moms, young families, hetero, open, reserved, everyone and anywhere in Newfoundland, but I truly believe that there should be a doula for everyone and if I fit what you're looking for, feel free to contact me for a free meeting and tea.

I am a birth and postpartum doula trained under Dona International.

I have worked as a midwifery second attendant, trained under the traditional midwifery model of care.

I am trained in spinning babies,

and am the first registered aboriginal birth worker in Newfoundland and Labrador!

I have supported all variations of the family unit,

and my methodology has its roots grasped in trusting your body, trusting your baby, and love is the best remedy in any circumstance.

My journey into birth work came unexpectedly but once it began it just kept moving forward.

My experience in birth work began in January of 2014 and has ranged from home birth to hospital birth, from doula to midwifery second attendant, from holistic to medical and the wonderful variations that exist in between.

I fell in love with birth work fairly quickly, and as my experience grew so did my passion to help families come together in whatever shape that may be. My goal is to help new and growing families have the most empowered birth and postpartum journey and transition that they can.

With a little support(or a lot), some educational resources, and a lot of love, I help the families I work with to have happier, more fulfilled, and empowered birth experiences to grow stronger together as a family unit. So that EVERYONE has the best birth experience, whatever that means for them, wherever you are I will meet you there and we will travel through this wonderful journey together.
