Feedback From Clients and Care Providers
Amy was my birth doula with my first son, and my postpartum doula with my third son! She is so caring and kind! I couldn’t have survived without her. Not only was she very supportive to my husband during the birth (as well as myself) she was my savior when I was home alone after my third son was born and I had a hemorrhage. I couldn’t go upstairs without getting dizzy, she helped hold my new son, play with my older two kids, dishes and laundry help, not to mention a shoulder to cry on when I was emotionally very vulnerable
Amy was an invaluable support for us during an unpredictable induction process that included an extremely long labour and an unplanned cesarean section. She kept us both calm and informed, reassured me that my body was doing what it should be, and helped me to support and advocate for myself when things began to deviate from how I hoped my birth experience would play out. She was was kind and understanding, non-judgemental, and incredibly attuned to our needs. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to recommend Amy’s services to anyone giving birth, particularly first-time parent
We need the presence of a calm doula like Amy at every birth.

My husband and I interviewed Amy and both felt an instant connection with her. Amy is knowledgeable, caring and her love for her work truly shows. Amy was a fantastic addition to our birth team and offered incredible support during the birth of our VBAC baby.
Amy was incredibly supportive and responsive before, during and after the birth of our son. She made herself available at any time during the prenatal and postnatal period and responded to my questions over email promptly. I had lots of questions for Amy throughout the prenatal period and she was very knowledgeable in her responses, frequently citing evidence-based studies. I undertook a home-study Hypnobabies relaxation techniques course - Amy had not previously supported a Hypnobabies birth but was willing to take on the challenge and did lots of research on the topic. On the day of the birth, I found her to be calm and loving, and it felt like having a close friend there. My husband also found her presence to be very supportive. Overall, I found Amy to be a knowledgeable, non-judgmental, caring and supportive doula.
We hired Amy as our doula for our second baby. She was such a calm, supportive presence for us throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I couldn’t have gotten through some of the ups and downs of last-minute birth plan changes without her level-headedness. She always knew what to do and say when I needed support. I highly recommend her doula services.

Amy's support before giving birth was so positive and gave me the confidence I needed to prepare for labour. My labour moved very fast so Amy was only present near the end, but her presence was priceless because we really needed her support during this life changing experience.
Amy was absolutely invaluable to us for the birth of our baby girl. She was a huge support and we couldn't have done it without her. Amy was there the entire time offering words of encouragement and supporting my husband to help support me. I had such a positive birth experience and Amy was a big part of that. She goes the extra mile, such as providing postpartum information on support groups. I would not hesitate to recommend Amy to anyone looking for a doula!
