Milly Friedman, Life Source Doulas
Spinning Babies® Parent Class


My name is Milly Friedman. I have been a Personal Fitness Trainer, Nutrition Coach and Business Owner for over 11 years. I have always been an advocate for woman’s strength. As a Momma to my active preschooler Adeline Mae, I have experienced the transition of Motherhood, one of life’s greatest adventures. Becoming a Doula has allowed me to follow my passion to serve women through this great triumph of their lives, Pregnancy and Childbirth.

Beginning at baby’s conception a woman begins to experience her body in an beautiful, incomprehensible way. Each pregnancy and birth has its own unique circumstance and individualized experience. My knowledge of anatomy and physiology allows me to support them through their transformation with consistent, continuous physical and emotional support. As a Certified Spinning Babies Parent Educator I am able to educate birthgivers about optimal fetal positioning in pregnancy through balanced movements and belly mapping which prepare body for the labor journey.

Milly sits on the executive board of the Doula Association of Edmonton

Additional Trainings: Spinning Babies, Advanced Peanut Ball use & Rebozo Techniques.

Tiffany Banack, Dream Baby Sleep
Toddler Sleep 101


My name is Tiffany, I’m a mom of 2 little girls, Lauryn whose almost 4 and Josie who is just about 2. Before starting my sleep consulting journey, I was a pediatric nurse for 6yrs, and prior to that, I worked in nephrology (Kidneys & dialysis) for 2yr.
I have always been passionate about sleep, I mean common what person doesn’t love sleeping. Being a pediatric nurse I was pretty confident with most “baby-related” stuff, but the one thing that made me nervous, was sleep. I had done tons of research into healthy sleep habits and sleep training ect. When my 1st came along she was a sleep dream! She has always been a pretty good sleeper, we did have to sleep train after the 4 month regression, but it went smoothly with minimal effort and minimal crying… then my second one came along and flip our world upside down. She was a disaster at sleeping. We struggled to get her to sleep in her own bed, she only wanted to sleep in bed with mommy. When we did finally get her to sleep, I rarely got more than 1.5hr of straight sleep – 2hrs of straight sleep was like a special treat. She ended up being diagnosed with silent reflux around 8 weeks. Once we got her on meds, and they started to work, she was like a completely different baby. By this point however we had gotten into some poor sleeping habits that needed to change.
By 3.5 months I felt like I had tried all the tricks that worked with my first, and nothing was working. I did more and more research and fell more and more into a sleep dept. My mood was low, my patience were none existent, and my toddler and husband were getting the brunt of it. After a while of trying a few different methods, I finally found one that worked and by 4.5 months she was sleeping 5-6hr straight (which I had never had with her before).
I remember how I felt and never want other parents to feel the way I felt. Sleep is so important!

Lauren Riege, Little Warriors
Little Warriors – Prevent It


The Prevent it! workshop is brought to you by Little Warriors, a national charitable organization based in Canada committed to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of child sexual abuse. The evidence based education workshop was developed by researchers at the University of Alberta and research shows it significantly improves attitudes, knowledge and behaviour. This workshop is unique in Canada and was developed using research-informed methods and evaluated with scientific rigour.

The Prevent It! workshop offers hope in the fight to prevent child sexual abuse. This hope comes from the knowledge that adults who take it can become more supportive of children and begin using more behaviours that are believed to reduce children’s vulnerability to sexual abuse. The Prevent It! workshop educates adults to TAKE ACTION through gaining knowledge to help prevent and respond to child sexual abuse.

Experts estimate:

1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys will experience sexual abuse
95% of those children know their perpetrator
95% of cases go unreported
