Theresa Parsons

This was my first time having my placenta encapsulated. After my first child, I had some health issues that arose after birth. The second time around I researched encapsulation and thought it was worth a shot. I found Johanna and she was excellent! She was very accommodating where she came to the hospital after midnight to pick up my placenta and she was back the next day with my pills! Johanna is very knowledgeable, friendly and offers a very affordable service. When she brought the pills to me the next day, she wraps it up in a beautiful gift bag. I highly recommend Johanna and I will definitely be giving her a call again if we decide to have more children. -Theresa

Wonderful. This was my 2nd time encapsulating my placenta. First time with Johanna as we are new to saskatchewan. She was warm and welcoming, came to my home and didnt require i get care for my daughter for any appointments! Johanna was also very easy to talk to and helped me find parenting groups info for my new home! She has fallowed up with me lots and offered advice, aswell she has given advice through my personal facebook! Not to mention how quickly my placenta was ready and delivered! Aswell she drove all the way to my midwife in the late night fir my placenta (very very far and very late!) She also responded to all calls and texts in a timly manor! I now consider her a friend, reccomend her hands down no questions asked and would definitely hire her again! I wishi had taken advantage of other services she offers! Aswell this would be a great gift if you know anyone expecting! Thank you so much johanna!

Johanna did placenta encapsulation for me. She exceeded my expectations! She was very professional, she provided me with ample information and resources so I was well informed, and she made everything so convenient for me. We had to call her in the middle of the night, and she promptly came to pick up my placenta and then delivered the capsules to my door by the next day. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends!

Originally as my back-up doula, I was introduced to the idea of encapsulating my placenta through my doula and Johanna. She took the time to answer my questions as I decided whether to go ahead with the encapsulation or not. Once I decided to go ahead with it, she was fast and professional in sending me the information and making sure that I was comfortable with everything. She was timely and professional when picking up the placenta from the hospital and when bringing my pills to me the very next night. When she dropped of my pills, she sat down with me and asked how everytihng was going and even took the time to chat and give me advice about topics non-encapsulation related, which was very much appreciated. She was always available through text if I ever had any questions during the time when I was taking the pills. Having this support throughout the entire process was incredibly appreciated and I am so grateful for the opportunity and for her support. I feel that the pills helped with my baby blues and emotions. I had one really hard morning and I feel like it would have been a lot worse wiithout the pills. I also feel like they helped with healing my stitches that I obtained during labour as I had very little pain during the recovery process. I would highly reccommend the encapsulation process and Johanna to anyone.

It was lovely to have Johanna as my doula. She was always prepared for our meetings, helped me build a thorough birth plan (including choices I hadn't previously considered) and if I ever asked a question she didn't immediately know the answer to, she always looked into it and followed up quickly with a well-researched answer. She attended my blessingway and did a beautiful belly henna design for me. I felt reassured knowing she was available to me if needed in the lead-up to the birth and ready to join me whenever labour should begin. She was a steady presence during my labour and I'm very glad to have had her there. She was respectful of my choices and made plenty of room for my partner to support me. Her work and support before, during, and after the birth was very valuable to have as a part of my experience. Thank you Johanna!

I ended up with a C-section with my first baby. This time around I really wanted a VBAC and with Johannas help I did! She was AMAZING all the way throughout. She made sure to provide me with all the info needed and answered all my questions throughout pregnancy. If she does not know something, she will find out! Her support through labor was very comforting and she would not leave until me and baby had everything we needed! But most of all I was amazed by the fact that she was willing to spend an entire night with me at the hospital taking care of the baby when I and my family could not! Soooo appreciated! And yes, of course I would recommend her!!!

Johanna was so much more than a doula for us!  

She displayed a professional demeanor at all times. She provided scientific studies to answer any questions I had during pregnancy and endeavored to answer any concerns I had after our baby was born.

During labour, she was a wonderful labour companion to me and support for my husband. She allowed me to lean on her, provided massage and counter-pressure, and always ensured I was well-hydrated.  She did not come between my husband and I, but rather, gave helpful suggestions to my husband so he could better help me.  

Johanna gave great hypnobirthing visualizations such as, "Sink your toes into the sand while the wave (contraction) washes over you." 

She made an incredible difference during my prenatal, labour, and postpartum! I cannot imagine having experienced labour without her.  She gave me confidence, which is worth more than words can express!

I had the pleasure of having Johanna at my birth and in want to say she was amazing . Not only was she there for the birth but she was away from her family for over 48 hours just to help me labour my baby boy. Johanna has gone over and abover for what a doula should do. She has become a great friend and a great support person.  She help me meet all my goals in labour and in post partum care. Johanna is very laid back down to earth lady. I would recommend her to anyone I swear she was born to do this. Thank Johanna for being an awesome support . Keep up the great work in your career

Johanna is an amazing person and I would love to do what she does. She's helped me through my pregnancy and giving birth to my son. I'm so greatful that Johanna was there so I didn't have to do i t alone and I should also be thanking my sister in law and everyone else who helped me along the way I don't know what I would do without them including johanna and I'm so glad to have her as my friend and godparent.
