birth dOULA, INSTRUCTOR & OWNER
Justine Geberdt is the owner, primary birth doula and childbirth educator at Love the Bump. She has attended hundreds of births, has taught hundreds of prenatal classes, and knows where they keep the popsicles.
In addition to her popsicle credentials, Justine has a birth doula certificate from CAPPA, a B.Sc. in Biological Sciences from the University of Guelph, and an End of Life Doula certificate from Douglas College. She is also an active member of the Association of Ontario Doulas and has received additional training in both acupressure and rebozo for birth professionals.
Justine is a spreadsheet enthusiast, a boy mom, an ice cream addict, and self-professed birth nerd. She loves spending her down-time watching bad television, hanging out with her sister, and failing pretty hardcore at pub trivia.
BaCKUP BIRTH dOULA
Chantelle Rosati is the lovely and talented backup birth doula here at Love the Bump! If Justine is at another birth or off-call, Chantelle swoops in for the win! I get that you might not want a stranger at your birth, that's why all Love the Bump doula clients will have a chance to meet Chantelle before the big day, just in case.
Chantelle has been a registered massage therapist since 2009. You read that right, a registered massage therapist! That means professional massages while you are in labour #winning. She has completed her doula training through Trimesters and loves bringing her magical touch to the birthing room.
Chantelle is a mom to 3 and a naturalist at heart (in case the picture didn't give it away). She is all about trailing, camping and tending to her garden. For funsies, she enjoys watching her kids play sports and curling up with a good book.
