Grace Pritchard Burson, CD (DONA), holds degrees from Williams College and Yale University. She has been a birth and postpartum doula since 2014, and began working with birthing families and mindfulness in 2016. She believes that the power of the mindfulness model as applied to pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting is only beginning to be tapped, and that the great strength of mindfulness practice is in its ability to hold whatever experience the birth process brings. As a doula, she is passionate about making birth stories better by holding space and supporting the choices of birthing families. She trained as a teacher of Mindfulness Based Childbirth & Parenting with Nancy Bardacke and Danielle Shuman-Olivier, and is excited to be the first to bring the MBCP model to Montreal!
