My Story

Hi! My name is Christine Angrove, and I'm passionate about helping people everywhere access their own power to grow, birth, and parent their child confidently! I'll teach you how to integrate your whole self - mind, body, and emotions- into the experience of pregnancy, labour, and early parenting.

I was only 20 years old when I became a pediatric nurse at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Even though those families were going through hard times, I believed in them! I encouraged them and taught them as they went through their journeys. And they taught me as much as I taught them.  I knew emotions were even more important than information.  People cope well when they feel supported, encouraged, and heard.

 

As I went on to have my own four lovely children, I learned so much about parenting with my whole self. Finally. in my fourth labour, I learned something about the power of my body to calm and center me. I became fascinated with how powerful we can be when we labour with our whole self: mind body and emotions. That's why I became a doula!

Everything I learned about emotional and physical support during labour resonated with me! I became more aware that the physical support that doulas give during labour is body work. We are integrated as humans. We can't exist just in our brains. We must acknowledge our emotions and our bodies as equal partners in our whole self. So we need to work with our emotions and our bodies when we learn about labour and parenting. There is an extremely calming effect on us when we acknowledge our emotions, and use our bodies to bring relaxation and peace.

Everything I've learned and experienced comes together to give this unique perspective on birth and early parenting that will help you experience this journey with your whole self! May you give birth and parent with joy and peace!
