Welcome to Matraea

Being a mother takes us to the edge of ourselves and back. It is a journey of hope and sorrow, of love, tears, perserverance and patience. It is by far one of the greatest challenges we face in our lives. At Matraea, our mission is to support and empower every mother, new or experienced, to give birth with dignity and grace, in a way that is right for her. Midwives Kate Koyote and Selina Boily, founders of Matraea, have spent over two decades serving women; delivering their babies and supporting their families. The natural, organic line of remedies they have developed addresses common problems like low iron, morning sickness, water retention, diaper rash and low milk supply–underlining their commitment to choice, safety, and education. Kate and Selina use Matraea products with their own children, and on the hundreds of Mamas and babies they have delivered. They are confident that you will love them too, as your children grow and thrive, inside and outside the belly!

Childless, By Choice

We here at Matraea believe in the right of choice and obviously we tend to focus on families–being that one of the services offered at the building is the Midwifery Clinic–but there are many of us that choose not to have children. Navigating in a culture that focuses on having children or at least adopting children if you are unable to conceive them can be a challenge particularly if you are a woman. The following blog was submitted by a client that loves being the “favourite Auntie” but has no interest of ever having children other than the fur kind. Even if that isn’t your reality, I urge you to please read on because you may find insight on how to be a more supportive friend, sister, or mother, or maybe help you connect with a co-worker better:
