About Us


"A doula is so much more than the definition. I offer educational, emotional, psychological and physical support. I am trained to offer unbiased and non-judgemental support, and I take this to heart. I want people to feel safe with me, and to be able to trust me."

~ Randi


How We Help

Randi van Wiltenburg

I had my first pregnancy back in 2008, that ended in a multiples miscarriage. I lost 4 more pregnancies before going on to having my first living child in August 2012. I had another loss January 2014, and again in July 2014. I fought hard and I went on to have my second living child in August 2015. That’s 7 miscarriages, 9 angel babies. My sister also passed away when I was 4, so I grasp loss with siblings. Loss and grief has always been a part of my life, and I’ve seen it come full circle.

I have been supporting people through their own loss journey’s since 2009. I believe that all births have a huge impact on the birthing person and plays a large factor in how they process the time afterwards. Having good and knowledgeable support can make such a difference to a person’s journey. I’m not just here for the birthing person, but for the entire family. Partners, grandparents, children are all impacted through life and loss. When it comes to loss(es) my main focus is to help people be aware of their choices, normalize the experience, and help them move through their loss process with as minimal regrets as possible.

To be asked to be a support to someone on their loss journey is just as much of an honour for me as to be asked to support someone through a “biologically typical” birth or support postpartum. I have had medical losses, to a loss with midwives, a high risk pregnancy with early induction and complications, to a “text book” pregnancy and home water birth, these experiences have helped shape me into the doula I am today. I believe that each person’s journey is their own, and that the right support can help people find their power even in the darkest times to the highest highs.

I bring empathy, sensitivity, compassion, knowledge and my ability to find the positive in life. I love to hear what people need and to take action to help in any way I can. I believes in a birthing person’s intuition and knowing what is best for their baby and their birth. I also believe that being heard, respected and supported through choices made for birth and postpartum can help people have an empowering experience.
