Yolanda Guitar

Safe Sleep for Infants

Yolanda became a safe sleep educator in 2004. Her journey to become the safe sleep expert she is today began with contacting agencies around the world that had anything to do with SIDS or safe sleep. She realized that the one common denominator was education. There is nothing that can be done about a true ‘SIDS’ death, but we can educate and hopefully prevent unsafe sleep deaths.


In this seminar Yolanda will update you on the most recent information and standards for safe sleep in Canada. This seminar will equip you with the tools to make safe decisions when purchasing products for sleep for your baby.

Sarah Winward, ND

Straight Talk from a Doula: What no one tells you about childbirth

Dr. Sarah Winward is a Naturopathic Doctor, birth doula and breastfeeding expert. She is also the mama of one very busy toddler. In 2015, Sarah took a birth doula course, without really knowing what she was getting into. Soon after completing the course she attended her first birth, and was completely hooked. She began devouring every piece of information on birth support she could, and she has been attending births regularly ever since (with a quick break to have her own baby, of course!). She soon realized that she also has a passion for breastfeeding and is currently working towards becoming an IBCLC. Sarah truly feels that it is an honour to be present to witness the incredible journey of pregnancy and childbirth.
