Stephanie was fantastic for our labour and birth. Baby decided to turn anterior facing at the last minute causing intense and very painful back labour! Stephanie was there to sqeeze my lower back every contraction and stuck it out with us for almost 18 hours. We ended up having a natural birth, and I don’t think we could have done it without her. Pre and post natal appointments were also great and very helpful. We are so glad to have Stephanie‘s ongoing support.
Stephanie is a fantastic doula. She was incredibly helpful all of the way from birth planning to breast feeding. We were having our first child and I was nervous about how to deal with the birthing process and what to expect. I wanted some extra help in the form of a doula, but my husband was apprehensive. He is hearing impaired and did not want someone over stepping, as can happen with people who have impairments. Stephanie meet with us and immediately understood what we were looking for and put our minds at ease. The questions she brought forth really made me think about what I wanted during the birthing process and she helped to make sure my plans were known. I ended up having a great labor that went according to plan. But even still I don't think I could have done it without her. She knew exactly when to step in and use calming techniques to help with the pain and when to step back and allow my husband and me to have a moment. Her encouragement and knowledge allowed me to push through when I didn't think I could. We are both so grateful we had her calm and nurturing spirit with us during this fantastic journey.
