Get to know Oona
Canada’s premiere studios for perinatal and pediatric care
Since 2017, Oona has been a trusted source for parents and parents-to-be, providing evidence-based treatments, workshops and classes. We believe in a common-sense approach to treating the whole person; birthing people and their families. At Oona we value gathering and sharing together, so that we can build a stronger community together.
How it all began
Née West End Mamas, Oona got its start in Toronto, on the city’s West side. With the realization that the way it’s been done is not the way it has to be, Dr. Sarah Mickeler created West End Mamas to empower pregnant people to feel better during pregnancy and beyond, in the perpetual postpartum period, as parents.
Oona continues that vision. Our caring community is growing to meet the needs of parents and their children, wherever they may be in their parenting journey.
Oona's mission is to change the landscape of fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum care in Canada (and beyond).
Our goal is to provide exceptional care to each and every one of our patients, from our tiny newborns, to their grandparents. We’re really good at what we do at Oona, and we want to bring these services across Canada.
The reality is that we used to parent in communities, but now we tend to parent in isolation. Parenting in isolation isn’t ideal for the mother/parent, the child or the family as a whole. Our goal is to bring back the community that we all need by providing information, treatments and choices that allow us all to feel our best at all times.
A group of experts decided to helping you feel your best
The team at Oona has been carefully and thoughtfully put together. Each of our practitioners, teachers, educators, classes and services has a role in the life of a parent or a child, and all of our staff have been selected for their warmth and experience, and their ability to help our clients feel their best and achieve their goals. All of our staff are passionate about working with the perinatal population and their families.
We offer extensive training to all who join our team to ensure that we are all promoting the same message and have the same values, which is to be safe, non-judgemental, evidence-based and to have a little light-hearted fun along the way whenever we can.
