Sharon Johnson

Sharon is a Birth Doula and Primal Year Doula. She is a member of the Association of Ontario Doulas. 

Sharon grew up in Fenelon Falls. She has studied film production, taught in a remote one room school, lived eight years off the grid a mile into the woods, and was part of the team that transformed Maryboro Lodge into an active family centre and community hub.

As a doula, Sharon offers personalized care in home, clinic, or hospital before, during, and after birth in the form of comfort measures (such as soothing touch, massage, and counter pressure); physical support (such as bracing, suggesting positions, and sharing movements for optimal fetal placement); emotional support (such as continuous presence, encouragement, reassurance, nonjudgemental acceptance, and debriefing); informational support (such as guiding, providing knowledge and evidence-based information, and offering non-medical pain relief options); advocacy (such as encouraging choice, supporting decisions made by the birthing person, facilitating communication with health providers, and amplifying the client's voice); and spiritual support (such as helping to work through fears and doubts, maintaining a safe and calm environment, and supporting birth rites).

Sharon strives to empower positive birth experiences. Her aim is to support people to thrive on their birth journey and into the primal year of parenthood.
