Nicole Cant
BScN,  ICBLC, dona 

Graduating from Thompson Rivers University in 2015 with a BScN, I have worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care, Postpartum, and Labour and Delivery units at Royal Inland Hospital. I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in June of 2018, and I attended DONA doula training in November 2018. I am most proud, however of my three beautiful children. Each of them from conception through birth and now early adulthood and teenage years has transformed my life. They both humble me and ground me and push me to be the best person I can. My husband and children are my biggest fans. I firmly believe that each birth is both amazing and unique. I will often tell patients/clients families that they are writing their story, one they will remember for as long as they live. My wish for your birth is that you are made to feel strong, supported, empowered, and informed. It is an honour and privilege to be invited to support families at these defining moments.
