Ricky Issler (she/her)

My name is Ricky Issler (she/her) and I live in Beaumont with my very supportive husband and two wonderful teenagers.  It has been an honor and privilege to have attended births as a Birth Doula in Edmonton and surrounding area for almost 12 years but I have retired from doula work.  I became a Certified Hypnotist and opened Edmonton Hypnosis Solutions in March of 2022.  The demands of birth work and being on-call 24/7 are a lot and it was time to move onto something with more regular work hours.

“I cannot begin to explain how vital Ricky was to our birthing process. I am so grateful for her experience in hypnobabies, her gentle and calming words, her understanding of womanhood, and her guidance she was able to provide my husband; together they were the best team I could ask for. I am a nurse who has previously worked in labor and delivery and now work in a neonatal intensive care unit. Needless to say, the birth process has been very medicalized for me! I have always believed strongly in the importance of natural birth while being respectful of the changes that modern medicine has brought to the safety of mothers and babies. I did a lot of research to find a doula that would help me to “demedicalize” the birthing process and help me to get out of my head (sometimes ignorance is bliss!). Ricky absolutely met all of my expectations, and then some. My labor was lengthy and my delivery was not how I had anticipated it might go but Ricky was at my side, helping me to utilize my hypnobabies skills and guide my husband to be the best partner he could possibly be. When there was a change in plans, Ricky was supportive and helped me to accept what my birth story would be. I honestly feel that I was able to leave “nurse Erin” at the door and just focus on being a woman and a mother. I certainly will be including Ricky in our birth for our future children and am forever thankful for the gift she gave me in enjoying the birth of our son.”
