Birth and Postpartum Doula, Certified Dancing For Birth Instructor, Birthing From Within Mentor, and Co-Owner of Balancing From Birth to Baby.
Bronwyn Addico has been fascinated with pregnancy, birth, and babies for as long as she can remember. After the midwife-assisted home birth of her daughter in 2005, Bronwyn became interested in midwifery.
She worked for Blue Heron Midwives for five years as an administrator and then later as an instructor in the clinics Connecting Pregnancy program.
Bronwyn has worked as a prenatal educator in the Kitchener Waterloo area for many years. After the birth of her son in 2013, she became a certified Dancing For Birth instructor. She has loved sharing the power of dance and its ability to assist women with birth and postpartum healing in our various classes.
In 2014 she embarked on a journey to become a Birthing From Within childbirth mentor and spent time in California in the Spring of 2016 to further her in-depth training. Bronwyn has been deeply influenced by this program’s view of birth as an initiation into parenting and how to examine your fears of birth and parenting.
In addition, Bronwyn led the Books and Babies program at Words Worth Books for nine years. She is an early literacy expert and loves to share with families the joy of reading with your children.
Bronwyn is a single mother of two wonderful kids. She is able to share a wealth of information based on her vast array of parenting experiences. Bronwyn looks forward to meeting you and supporting you on your pregnancy, birth, and parenting journey either in one of her classes, a coaching session or as a doula at your birth.
