Testimonials From Clients and Care Providers
Every woman needs a doula". This statement could not be more true! We hit some bumps around 39 weeks, health complications lead to a transfer of care and our carefully planned peaceful birth went out the window. I was in a setting I didn’t want to be in with care providers I didn’t know or trust. Amy was the one familiar constant for us. Her reassuring voice and gentle approached helped me to relax in a stressful environment. She will be one of the first people we contact for our next pregnancy!

We need the presence of a calm doula like this 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.
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!
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.
As a replacement for my doula (who was sick) I met Amy during a difficult moment of labour. She immediately put me at ease and helped me stay calm through the entire birth. Amy is a fantastic doula who made the entire experience a very positive one for me.
Amy gave us so much more that we expected when we hired a doula. She is incredibly caring, giving and kind. Our baby came earlier than we expected, but she arrived quickly and knew just what to say to make both my husband and I smile and feel comfortable. She was also very helpful with breastfeeding support.
