I'm Brittney Kirton; an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and Postpartum Doula.
As a Lactation consultant, I evaluate the mother-baby-feeding dyad and make recommendations to improve breastfeeding for mother and baby.
Registered Holistic Nutritionists provide clients with individualized nutrition support including: meal plans, recipes, research articles, and one on one personal support to reach your health goals.
As a Postpartum Doula, I offer support to new families in the following ways: helping families adjust to a new dynamic, infant education and support, infant and sibling care, mother care and support, and help maintaining home.
Brittney’s excellent guidance, patience, knowledge and endless support continue to be an amazing help in attaining my nutritional goals. I was overwhelmed with all the changes but with Brittney’s encouragement and expertise I am feeling so much better physically and mentally. You rock Brittney thank-you so much for everything!

Brittney was a perfect post partum doula for us. She was always very reliable, timely, helpful and encouraging. She helped me with my struggles with breastfeeding, made sure I was rested and fed and most importantly was amazing with our son. We absolutely loved working with her and would recommend her to any one.
I highly recommend Brittney. She took wonderful care of my baby boy and I had complete confidence that he was in good hands when I left the house. She is warm, confident, and has a great sense of humour. Brittney was very professional, courteous, reliable and prompt.
I had met Brittney through her work as nutritionist long before I became pregnant. It was actually in conversation with her that I first learned about (post-partum) doulas and how they can help a family learn to integrate a new baby into their lives. With Brittney's open and friendly manner, my husband and I agreed that we would engage Brittney to help us when our time came.
Brittney met us at the door the first day that we came home from the hospital with our daughter and was so happy to meet the previous occupant of my baby belly! She was fantastic and helpful from the moment she helped us up the stairs, but then she had been that way since the day I told her that I was 9 weeks pregnant .
Both before and after my baby was born, Brittney was invaluable for questions and recommendations for everything from glass baby bottles to where I could find/buy particular items I was looking for, to helping us clarify our values in how we wanted our daughter cared for, in very specific terms. I cannot stress how supportive and non-judgemental Brittney is. I never felt silly for asking anything. She provided answers in such a clear and precise manner, not at all condescending. There was nothing that I couldn't talk to her about.
Brittney was amazing with our daughter and with us. She showed my husband and I how to soothe her and gave tips on how to help her with gas or constipation. She wasn't just helpful while she was in our home but helped us develop skills to care for our daughter on our own and without anxiety.
Brittney was ready to take our daughter in her arms the minute she walked in the door. Just knowing that I would have Brittney with us the next day gave me the peace of mind to make it through the current day. She is trustworthy and caring, professional and punctual. Having Brittney in our home had an enormous and positive impact on our experience of those early weeks of parenthood.
