Angela Peeters has always believed in empowering women to reach their full potential. She began her career as a journalist, following her passion for writing. Then she landed an unexpected job teaching English as a Second Language for the local school board. Her love for teaching children began her path of mindfulness and growth. When she got pregnant with her first daughter, she decided to spend the next six years as a stay-at-home mother. During her time home, she studied for her BA in both English and Psychology. She became a support for twin moms, a breastfeeding advocate, and then a surrogate mother for a gay couple – twice. Her journey helping others has been a unique adventure which led her to create her company, called Canadian Surrogacy Community. She now concentrates her time to help couples through their struggles with infertility, and LGBTQ members looking to build their families through surrogacy.

Women’s Self Care Conference Ambassadors

The Self-Care Ambassadors for the Third Annual Women’s Self-Care Conference in Ontario make the daily choice to put themselves on their to-do list while going above and beyond to inspire others to do the same!

Laura Crowe
“Self-care is something that looks different for anyone. Don’t measure your self care to someone else.”

Christine Crowe
“Self-care is committing to taking care of my overall well-being every single day. I approach self-care holistically (mind, body and spirit), tailoring my self-care to each day’s needs.”

Magda Perri
“Self-care to me means pushing myself to do things that feel difficult but will help me grow.”

Ange Smith
“Self-care to me means creating personal boundaries and self-discipline on a daily basis to live the best fulfilling life with ease, happiness + joy.”

Mel Dodge
“Self-care to me means listening to the messages my body, mind and soul have to live in alignment, with purpose, and with joy.”

Tasha Shield
“Self-care to me means being kind to myself and listening to what I need to do to feel and be my best.”

Stephanie Quigley
“Self-care means allowing myself to receive all the pleasures, treasures and blessings this magical world has to offer!”

Jenny Hauser
“Self-care to me means a commitment of taking care of my physical and emotional well-being – to live a life full of vibrancy, joy and of service to others :)” 

Bobbie Breckenridge
“Self-care to me means honoring my truth, breaking people-pleasing patterns, and stepping into my power so that I may serve others in alignment with my values and personal well-being.”

Katherine Lewis
“Self-care is leaning into all the emotions. Feeling all ‘feels’ and allowing yourself to be and do what is needed in that moment.”

Leanne Cove
“Self-care to me means loving myself and honouring my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs. This enables me to live a healthy, happy and fulfilled life with more of myself to give in love and service to others.”

Karah Jewel
“Self-care is about being brave, and staying disciplined. It’s doing the things we should do but don’t want to do. It’s resilience; taking your failures and mistakes in grace and rising up regardless of how far you’ve fallen. It is a method, more so a way of life than a particular action.” 

Sheina Hemstreet
“Self-care to me means leading with intentional action and making space for your ever-evolving purpose. In order to properly care for oneself you must know yourself deeply and honour the needs that serve your highest purpose and personal desires. I believe that self-care is best maintained through ritual, celebration and connection.”
