Avital has been the office manager at Westside since 2013. She spent nearly 10 years working in health insurance administration and marketing, but left the corporate world to become a birth & post-partum doula and to provide breastfeeding support to new mothers as a Le Leche League Leader. While she’s at reception to book your appointments and ultrasounds and manage the plethora of administrative duties the clinic requires, she’s also happy to link you with community resources and chat about things close to her heart, such as breastfeeding, VBAC and the joys and challenges of parenting. When she’s not at her desk at Westside, you’ll find her with her two sons at the beach, or with her hands in wool in front her spinning wheel and loom.

She has a background in communications and has spent the past 15 years working in the Kundalini Yoga community in Vancouver training Yoga teachers. A certified pre-natal yoga teacher since 2006, Bir Kaur has also served women during pregnancy and motherhood as a birth doula. She is kept on her toes by her two young children and in her spare time…wait…what’s that!?
