Testimonial

" 'I can't say enough about our doula. Our experience was more of a blessing than we could have ever asked for. She was so supportive and knowledgeable I can't imagine not having had her!"

Having our doula there to help us through the emotional journey of giving birth was amazing! She was so calm and patient. Just having her in the room made my whole birth experience calmer and much more special.
 
 
You have a very calming presence that soothes and invigorates. It was also great to be able to bounce ideas off of you during the delivery so I could feel confident in my decisions.
Your presence, calming tone of voice, ‘been through it before’, moral support for me when I felt like I would never go through it was the most important.
 
 
My husband was fully included in the whole process. We could not have gone through the pain in natural birth without you.
Whenever I put my hand out, you were there. Your verbal encouragement helped me to eventually believe in myself.
