In the words of our clients
Here are some of the stories of our past clients so you can get a sense of what it's like to work with me. Everybody has a different story, but I hope you can see that the common thread in them all is that I want the best for your birthing experience and am passionate about doing what it takes to ensure that you have that.
Dawn and Andrew talk about the differences between their relationship with their primary care provider and their doula. They explain how the two can compliment one another and how having a doula made their first birth a much smoother experience.
Andrew shares a husband and new father's perspective on the doula experience. A doula doesn't replace the partner, but rather supports them so they can be the best partner they can for the birthing mom.
Jade talks about how a doula provides non-judgmental support and guides families through many birth experiences including scheduled caesarean birth.
Abbey discusses how having a doula enabled her to focus on the birth itself rather than memorizing facts from childbirth class. It was a stress reliever for that burden to be removed from her. She also talks about how having a doula ensures the best possible game-time decisions are made - in the interest of the birthing mom and the family.
Affordability is a common concern when considering whether or not to have a doula. Cathy tells her story about how she was pleasantly surprised at how affordable it actually was once she looked into it. When taking into account that a doula acts as a guide through the labor and birth process as well as a knowledgable support person for postpartum, she realized it actually is a very small investment.
