Entrant: Bailey Delves
Nominee: Kathie Lindstrom, LCCE,CD,CDT Coordinator of Perinal Studies Douglas College
Kathie Lindstrom (pictured in the middle) has been THE guiding force in perinatal education in Canada.
She has been a doula and an educator for many years. She is a great teacher and an inspiration to anyone aspiring to make a difference in maternity care.
I cannot say enough good things about her. She is humble, she is strong, and she has truly made a difference in the lives of hundreds (maybe thousands) of women, babies and their families worldwide.
Ask anyone in Canada’s birth community, and they will all tell you — Kathie is fantastic.
