Krystal became interested in a career of supporting mothers and their babies in 2010.  She has more recently completed doula training through MACFE (2014) and DONA International (2017) and is a certified birth doula (DONA).  She views birth as a miraculous event that remains memorable for a lifetime.  With valuable and accurate information along with proper guidance and support, each birth experience has the potential to be as natural and precious as the body is designed to be.  She does her best to ensure that women understand their options during labour including both the risks and benefits associated with these choices whether in a hospital, birth center or at home.  She sees that certain breathing and positioning techniques while maintaining a calm environment for the expecting mother and the family play a valuable role in preparing both mom and baby to endure the labour process.  She continues to work at becoming a better doula through client feedback and further education and training.  Krystal resides on a small acreage outside Carman with her husband Serge and 2 daughters, Maëlle and Abigail.  She enjoys spending time with them while being outdoors and traveling.  Some of her other passions include running and taking on organizational projects.
