In 2019 Doula Canada has set a goal of supporting our diverse population of doulas and childbirth educators.
One of the main initiatives in this goal has been to hire more bilingual staff… and Bridget Graham is exactly that!
This Nova Scotia residing doula has recently accepted the position of Provincial Liaison for Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Along with our recent partnership with Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick, we hope to not only be teaching our programs in both French and English by year’s end, but also be supporting our students in the language of their choice coast-to-coast-to-coast.
Thank you Bridget for joining our team! We are excited for what is to come.

What brought you to work with Doula Canada?
Dès le début de mes études avec Doula Canada en juillet 2017, j’ai toujours trouvé
que l’organisation est superbe. A chaque jour les employées et les étudiants
m’étonnent. Je me compte chanceuse de travailler avec Doula Canada comme
Liaison Provinciale pour la Nouvelle-Ecosse, le Nouveau-Brunswick et le Québec.

I currently reside in Halifax, traditionally known as Kjipuktuk in Nova Scotia with
my partner Aaron and our cat, Alice. My hobbies include reading, baking, cooking,
making preserves and knitting. I am currently learning to quilt.
Describe your current job/profession or professional/personal
I am the current Engagement Retention Coordinator with the College of
Sustainability at Dalhousie University. In the past I have also served as the
Academic Advisor and Program Manager for the College of Sustainability.
I began my journey as a Doula in 2017, and since then I have attended two births
for my certification. Above all, I get the greatest joy from helping and supporting
others so my work as a doula allows me to do just that.

Environment, Sustainability and Society, as well as Canadian Studies. In 2017, I
received my Master of Arts degree in Canadian History. Both of my degrees are
from Dalhousie University.
I have presented at the EECOM conference in October
2018 on student engagement via social media.

Guides, I am a member of the Students on Ice Alumni Council, as well as a member
