Giselle Johnston

Giselle is a full spectrum doula living in the west end of Toronto. After almost a decade of childcare and educational work Giselle decided that it was their dharma to support women, non-binary and trans folks through labour, postpartum and reproductive justice work, hence becoming a full spectrum doula. For Giselle, doula work is an absolute labour of love that combines their passion for life, education and nurturing care. During labour Giselle is compassionate, encouraging and fully present for their clients. Postpartum, one will refer to them as the baby whisperer as they holds space for you and your little one.

During downtime Giselle is usually biking around Toronto, travelling to new destinations, reading, doing yoga, baking and resting at home with their little family!
