Desiree Letendre, Birth Doula

My name is Desiree Letendre and I'm a certified birth doula through Dona International, located in Edmonton, Ab.  I have spent the better portion of my life fascinated by pregnancy, labor, birth, and babies.  I have a passion for the miracle of birth and feels my purpose in life is to help expectant and new mothers.  

I have 2 children of my own, both of which were born via cesarian section.  I strongly believe if I had been better informed of my options and had built a stronger support system then both my children could have been born without medical intervention.  

On top of being a certified Birth Doula, I am also a Registered Massage Therapist with the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada (NHPC).  I have been practicing for 7 years specializing in prenatal massage along with deep tissue and trigger point work.  I am also trained in relaxation, lymph drainage, myofacial, and hydrotherapy as well as other modalities.  I incorporate my massage experience into my Doula practice by offering prenatal massage and Craniosacral therapy treatments as well as using my massage and Craniosacral techniques during labor.  

I have just finished my Craniosacral Therapy 2 and am currently working on my Reiki Level 1 and will also be incorporating these into my practice.
