I am a Naturopathic doctor*, certified HypnoBirthing Childhood Educator and Birth Doula.

I believe in facilitating the change I want to see in the world, which is to remove the fear quite often associated with the birthing process.  I’m passionate about creating a safe and loving space where parents can confidently make informed decisions that work best for them and their baby in collaboration with medical staff. I have a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from McMaster University. With an active background competing in rhythmic gymnastics, dance and powerlifting, I’ve come to understand the power and importance of the mind and it’s connection to the body.  The value of this connection in healing is what brought me to Naturopathic Medicine, and what has continued to carry me through my other certifications in Doula work and HypnoBirthing.  I have been attending births since 2016 and teaching HypnoBirthing since 2017.  I look forward to supporting you in your birth journey either in group or private classes.

Email: kris@beautifulbelliesdoulacare.ca
Phone: (416) 910-8200

For over 12 years, Kris has pursued her passion for supporting individuals and families through life-changing events. Her colleagues say people flock to Kris for advice and guidance because of her down to earth demeanour and wealth of knowledge.
Kris is the founder of Beautiful Bellies Doula Care, supporting families in Peel & Halton and Toronto. Her desire to become a doula stemmed from her own childbirth experiences. In the last month of her first pregnancy, she became petrified of childbirth after two mothers in her prenatal group suffered from side-effects of the epidural. Unable to secure a midwife, she hired a doula for the birth of her daughter, which she feels is the best decision she ever made. She feels privileged as HypnoBirthing® educator to witness over again how, when mind and body are released from fear, a much gentler birth is possible. She is continually upgrading her training and attended the Midwife Assistant Training at Ina May Gaskin’s The Farm Midwifery Centre in April 2015.
As mother to two amazing adult children, Kris understands both the joys and challenges of becoming a parent. Her background as a HypnoBirthing® practitioner and childbirth educator, certified birth doula, consulting hypnotist, and Accredited Goulding SleepTalk® for Children consultant inform her exceptional ability to be sensitive to and understand the needs of her clients. Kris has an affinity for helping couples and parents navigate through their choices, possessing a strong understanding of their needs and how to ensure they are met. She looks forward to sharing this journey with you!

HypnoBirthing Toronto childbirth education classes


Congratulations on your pregnancy! As your journey unfolds, my intention is to empower and guide you, along with your birth partner, towards an informed, calm and engaged pregnancy and birthing experience. Passionate and continuously curious about my work, I strive to educate and motivate couples during their journey into childbirth and guide women to a deeper connection and understanding of her birthing body. It is a  humbling opportunity to be witness to the moment when each and every woman begins to tap into her personal, unique and innate ability to give birth and trust her body as her most intimate teacher.  With the help of her birth partner, women can easily learn to apply the HypnoBirthing® relaxation, visualisation and mindfulness techniques with confidence during childbirth which will create a more joyful and positive birthing experience!


I believe every woman has the right to choose and be informed of all her options when it comes to childbirth and to surround herself with health care practitioners that fully support and align with her birth preferences and values. If you are interested in connecting on a deeper level to your birthing body and participating in the birthing process, then HypnoBirthing® childbirth classes are for you.


“trust and follow the harmony within you and be guided by your birthing body”


When I’m not teaching, I love to take in the simple things of life, especially exploring neighbourhoods on two wheels, weekend getaways and enjoying quiet moments in the city and in nature.

HBCE, Birth Doula, HB Doula, Consulting Hypnotist, Suzuki violin teacher, Bach of Mus. and Mus. Ed. (U. of Michigan)


My desire is to keep growing, learning and helping families for a better, safer world.
I came to HypnoBirthing in a unique manner: Years ago as a busy professional musician, I noticed that I had a physical condition interfering with playing violin. An article I read taught how to use inner focus to change physical conditions and I successfully applied it to my problem. I realized this was self-hypnosis when a Doula client brought me to HypnoBirthing classes. I learned about the wonderful benefits this method has to offer, all stemming from the concept that the mind/body are truly connected and decided right then that I wanted to teach it to my clients. To continue in my journey of self-discovery and service to others, I am a Consulting Hypnotist with specialties in fertility, pain management and complimentary medical hypnosis. My volunteer activities have included remedial reading support for elementary age kids and hospice.

YogaMamas 1402 Queen St. East (Queen St and Greenwood) AND Evymama 1345 St. Clair Ave W. (St. Clair Ave W. and Lansdowne Ave)

(416) 686-3809





Allison is a certified HypnoBirthing practitioner, hypnotist and mama. She has three children who have taught her the importance of patience, presence and kindness. Having been a young single mother and an older married mother, she brings a wide array of experiences to her classes. She believes that giving birth can be a joyful experience and has a passion for empowering families to experience birth with love and peacefulness. She is committed to personal growth and practices Qi Gong and meditation to expand her compassion for herself and others.

A researcher and analyst at heart, she never tires of learning about birth and is continually reading about evidence based practices while being firmly rooted in the philosophy that birth is a normal, human experience rather than a medical event. She believes that the best possible births occur when medical expertise is brought together with a deep respect for our bodies and our innate birthing wisdom. Birth is an aspect of our sexuality and as such, should be treated with love, respect, compassion and consent.
