About Me

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

My name is Ricky Issler and I live in Beaumont with my husband and two wonderful children.  I have been attending births as a Birth Doula in Edmonton and surrounding areas since 2010.  I am a DONA certified Birth Doula, Hypno-Doula and a Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis Instructor.  I was blessed with two very positive birth experiences with a doula and I know firsthand how important their presence can be.  I am passionate about birth and about helping women to have a positive birth experience, however they envision that to be.  As a doula, I am honored and privileged to be a part of a woman’s birth experience.  I love to see a mother empowered and able to trust her inner wisdom and draw upon her inner strength.  To witness a child’s birth is something that I deeply cherish and am grateful to experience each and every time.

I am also a Reiki Master and I believe that the healing energy of Reiki has great benefit for both baby and mother as she labours and gives birth.  See more about Reiki in my services.
