Toni Botas

Founder & Owner

Toni is the founder and owner of Bien Aime. Her own birth experiences led her to become a doula. Her first was traumatic and left her with PTSD. Determined not to replicate that experience, she did her research and took her second birth into her own hands, which resulted in a much more positive experience.  By her third pregnancy, she knew exactly what she wanted and, with the support of a doula, had an exceptionally redeeming, empowering, and life-changing experience. It was proof of what’s possible with the right support and information – and she now works to help other women birth with confidence on their own terms.  In addition to being a bebo mia-certified doula, she is also a Certified Childbirth Educator and Gentlebirth Instructor®, and certified professional member of Evidence Based Birth®. She lives in Barrie with her husband and three children.
