Tehseen has experience working cooperatively alongside midwives, obstetricians, family physicians and nursing staff to promote an environment that is comfortable, empowering and supportive during pregnancy and birth. She has experience in home, hospital and Toronto Birth Center births, including “water births”. Her approach is to guide mothers and their partners to recognize their innate strength to parenthood, and provide them with the knowledge to make informed decisions about the birthing process. She is committed to providing families with the highest level of emotional and physical support to encourage a positive birth experience.
Tehseen is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and the University of Calgary (Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Science). She completed Naturopathic Doula training in 2011. She is fluent in Hindi and Kutchi and has additional training in prenatal and fertility acupuncture, reflexology, homeopathy and mind/body medicine.
During her spare time, Tehseen enjoys spending time in nature, singing Bollywood music at community events, knitting, yoga, meditation and reading self-development books. She values quality time with her family and husband and loves cooking creative healthy meals to share with them.
