Stephanie Cutler is a Sacred Pregnancy Instructor, a DONA certified Birth Doula, owner of TigerLily Doula Services, and wife to an amazing man and mother to an amazing little girl. After the doula-supported home birth of her own daughter in 2012, Stephanie took the long-pondered step into birth-work, and trained and began supporting births as a birth doula. She has been deeply in love with this work ever since, and feels constantly humbled and blessed by her clients’ strength and the incredible experience that is birth.
Over the past few years, Stephanie has been privileged to work in a variety of birth environments through her own private practice, through wonderful programs such as the South Community Birth Program in Vancouver, and as a Board Member and volunteer doula with the Doula Services Association of BC. She has also worked to bring education into the community through written articles, community programs, groups, and markets, both on the lower mainland and on the island. In April 2015, Stephanie attended a Sacred Pregnancy Instructor’s Retreat, and was moved deeply. "I realized that the ‘Sacred’ approach held keys to deepening our experience of birth and everything beyond, and knew that I had to share this gift." Since then, Stephanie has been working hard to get her classes up and running, and is excited to be able to offer them at Matraea for residents of the Cowichan Valley.

Stephanie Coulter | Sacred Pregnancy Instructor
Sue Fryer | The Billings Method Natural Fertility Control
Sue majored in social work at Concordia University, Montreal. She relocated to Vancouver Island over ten years ago with her husband Justin, and is an active resident in Maple Bay community. As a mother and grandmother, Sue feels a special responsibility of passing on knowledge to young couples so that they become confident in knowing every day whether they are fertile or infertile, and so decide when to make love, depending on whether they wish to achieve or avoid pregnancy.
Diane Barr | Yoga Instructor
I recently returned to my home of the Cowichan Valley after over a decade of living and teaching yoga abroad in Hong Kong and London, England. I have been a yoga instructor since 2002, however the focus of my teaching shifted after giving birth to my daughter in 2015.
I was absolutely humbled by the effects of the birthing process, both physically and emotionally. My own postpartum struggles with pelvic floor dysfunction, body image and getting used to my new role as a mom have led to both profound growth and learning that now inform my teaching. Learning how to support women in pregnancy, the birthing process and the postpartum period have become my passion!
I am extremely grateful to share what I continue to learn through prenatal and postpartum yoga and am excited to be a part of the loving, supportive community at Matraea.
Scarlett Jaxen | Early Morning Yoga
Born as an empath, Scarlet feels deeply and was naturally drawn to the healing arts to complete her Social Work degree at the University of Calgary. Here she tapped into her magic as an intuitive listener and open-hearted guide.
Scarlet has trained as a dancer and yogi for most of her life, relying on movement to express her truth and regulate emotions. She has developed a unique style of yoga-flow that weaves students between vulnerability and strength. She helps women celebrate the Goddess within by uniting the magic of Mother Earth with the Sky-Moon-and-the-Stars in the body temple.
Scarlet commits herself to her offerings with integrity and ethical practice. She will invite you to listen to the whisperings of your heart space, to practice full self expression, and to tune into your unique sacred gifts. Please join her every Tuesday and Thursday morning!
