Grand River Doula


Minda Cerson, ND

Birth and Post Partum Doula service in Guelph and surrounding areas


It takes a village to raise a child – but the need for support starts from the beginning.


 As a certifying birth and post partum doula, I will be there for you through your labour or your post partum period with physical comfort techniques, practical help, education and unflagging encouragement so you can feel a village of support on your side!


Give yourself or a loved one the gift of unconditional support

About Minda Cerson


I spent almost 15 years behind a desk as a naturopathic doctor and was completely in awe the first time I coached a birth 11 years ago.  After attending several more over the years I've decided to get out from the desk and actively focus on an area that is more fulfilling than anything else I've done.  


Although I have attended births in the past as a coach for friends and family, I have now taken the professional training for both birth and post partum doula work and am working towards certification with CAPPA.


My outside interests include spending time with my family, forest walks with my dog and getting out on a kayak (also with the dog!) in the splendour of the Grand River.  I volunteer in the community to get everybody else outside too (check out www.g2grailtrail.com if you enjoy walking or biking on rail trails).


I am also a big lover of food of all kinds and enjoy experimenting with different techniques and combinations.  Currently I've been playing with wild fermentation through pickling vegetables in various forms, baking with sourdough and even making wild fermented probiotic gingerale.  I'm also a big fan of soup and always have leftovers to share!


I look forward to working with you and your family to create a birth and newborn experience that is positive in whatever interesting and unique form it takes!
