We Are Here for You
The WOMB has supported thousands of family members in Ontario and around the world. Since 2014, The WOMB has been the place for families to come for health and wellness care, birth and parenting education, and fitness and yoga . It is a center of excellence in fertility, pregnancy, birth, the postpartum period and life beyond parenting. The WOMB sees you as a WHOLE person – taking into consideration your physical, mental and emotional health.
This is why we call The WOMB a “wholeness” center.
Why We Care So Much
THE WORLD OF MY BABY: The WOMB™ first grew out of a passion for nurturing, loving and inspiring birthing families with the founding of the Halton Doula Group by Lorri Fleming and Angie Stenback in 2007.
Over the span of 7 years the doula group grew and formed a community of health care practitioners that became The WOMB: The World of My Baby.
THE WOMB opened its doors with its flagship practice in Milton, Ontario in June 2014 and has since expanded to include 5 locations including Burlington, Guelph, Vaughan and Woodstock, Ontario.
Today, THE WOMB provides families a one-stop shop for:
- nurturing health care and guidance when planning a pregnancy
- a healthy, mindful and informed birth and parenting experience
- family health care, personal development and self-growth.
The WOMB fosters this through a diverse team of collaboarative health care providers, self awareness practice, education, yoga and fitness – in a non-judgmental, safe and welcoming environment.
The WOMB’s Roots
The WOMB’s ROOTS ground us, provide our foundation, and nourish our vision and mission. The following values represent our philosophies and guide us as we endeavor to nurture, love and inspire communities.
Love and Connection
Love and connection are expressed in our relationships with our family, our team, our community, our earth and most importantly with ourselves. Love and connection nourishes these relationships through compassion, communication, kindness, respect, inclusivity, and trust.
Inspiration, Truth, and Authenticity
Gratitude and Giving Back
Preserving Mother Earth
When becoming parents, we become protective with all our being for our children. Our children are our roots and legacy, and we are their sustainer of life. Mother Earth protects us in a similar way by providing life-supporting air, with water to hydrate and land upon which to sow our crops. We believe it is our sacred and divine duty to respect our mother earth, preserve her legacy, conserve her resources and keep her as clean as possible.
The WOMB acknowledges that the land upon which we are currently settled – colonized as the Halton Region – has been walked upon by many nations before us. It is located within the traditional territories of the Naishnaabek, Haudenosaunee, Attawandarin, and the Metis. We respectfully acknowledge the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, which is an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the plentiful resources around the Great Lakes. We are grateful to the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation for continuing to care for, steward and share their traditional territory with us. We have the responsibility to honour and respect the four directions, land, waters, plants, animals, ancestors and elements of creation that exist and have walked this territory before us.
Learning and Evolving
We have a deep belief that when you know more, you do better. We acknowledge that learning is a lifelong process. It means growing in awareness, taking the opportunities for education, developing intuition, living by our own core values, and listening to our inner wisdom.
The WOMB’s team members endeavor to provide a safe community for BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA clients, including using inclusive language at all times and participating in continuous anti-racism and anti-oppression education.
