Before I discovered my love for motherhood I started my career as a paramedic.
After years of travels and education, I knew I wanted an exciting job helping people in need.
I've worked in many cities as a paramedic and eventually moved to fort McMurray! Shortly after, I married my husband and went back to school to become a firefighter. I was hired by the fort McMurray fire department where I have worked for 6 years. Between the travels, education, the big move and marriage I was blessed with two amazing boys, Hudson and Forrest. This is when my passion for everything motherhood blossomed. My passion for babies and birth began many years before I had my own. As a small girl the only thing I wanted in my future was to be pregnant and have babies! My 2 year paramedic course had a labour and delivery portion in which I excelled. Science and biology is jam! During my travels to Africa I had the pleasure of delivering many babies. This only fueled my love for labour and delivery.
When I first read it, I thought to myself, “this is never going to work.” It could’ve been a fluke, but the VERY FIRST NIGHT we tried Tayla’s suggestions, my daughter slept the longest she had in 5 months – she slept in her crib and only woke up once or twice.
Tayla answered the call, showed up and kicked ass. She provided support to my girlfriend and guided me in ways to provide support. I honestly don't know what I would've done during her labour without Tayla present. If you're on the fence about hiring a doula please get off the fence. You won't regret it.
She took her time, answered any questions I had and stayed as long as I needed her too. After she left, I'd still text her with questions and she was happy to help me. I recommend all my pregnant first-time moms see Tayla. If it wasn't for her, I probably would have given up breastfeeding a long time ago. Thanks to Tayla, I can feed Emma pain-free and I actually love breastfeeding!
Tayla's knowledge, commitment and passion for helping babies and families sleep better is what makes her so special and I consider her such an asset to our community. Such a kind personality, and would most definitely recommend her to everyone. Thanks again Tayla for all the sleep we are getting. I have one happy and well rested baby.
We tried sleep training on our own, but it just got worse and worse. In desperate need of sleep, we decided to hire Tayla as a sleep consultant. She came over on a Saturday and helped us tweak our routines and gave us a “plan” we could stick with. From that night on my son has slept at least 11 hours a night! Tayla was there every morning to check in and give us any tips and tricks. The only thing I wish is that I would have called her sooner!
Tayla was so supportive and helpful, offering me advice and recommendations on how to make the transition from our bed, to a crib in her own room as smooth as possible. Within a few nights I couldn't believe it, she was sleeping for 10-12 hours straight! Fast forward to 4 months later and our daughter is still sleeping through the night, in her own space, every night! I can't thank Tayla enough for all of her help, it's amazing what a difference getting sleep makes in your daily life.
Tayla was born and lives to help others. It was evident when she showed up at my home to help me with breastfeeding. We had trouble with latching and she spent an hour with me going over positions and ways to practice. When that didn't work, she spent hours researching and returned to help diagnose my little guys posterior tongue tie! I have since had the tie repaired and again Tayla has followed up to ensure we are on the path to pain free breastfeeding.
Tayla helped us with sleep training my 5 month old twins. We were getting no sleep at all and now we have a happy, rested family. She is so kind and supportive. I definitely recommend her to anyone who needs more sleep in their lives!
Tayla saved my sanity and relationship! Sleep Training was the best investment for our family. I was skeptical sleep training would work but I hadn't slept more than 2-3hrs in over a year and my 1year old would wake up every 1-2hrs all day/ night. Tayla helped me get him into a routine and within 3days we were all sleeping through the night.
My first child (now 3) slept through the night quickly on her own. I assumed the same would happen with my second. When she didn't I reached out to Tayla for help. After receiving a plan from her things improved very quickly. And within a week my 4month old was sleeping through the night. I couldn't be happier. Thanks Tayla!
So thankful for the sleep training! In 3 days my son went from waking between 3-7 times a night and short cat naps here and there, to sleeping through the night and taking two 2 hour naps a day with the schedule that she gave me. She provided tips, daily support and the reassurance I needed to make sure we were successful. Money well spent!
