Brenda was an incredible doula. Her information was given to me by another doula that I worked with. From start to finish, Brenda was professional, friendly and supportive. She was an incredible support person to both myself and my husband. She was excellent at reading exactly what we both needed. She knew when to give us space and when to press in. I had a hard time telling if I was pushing properly and Brenda was so encouraging and supportive. I could not have had the wonderful birth experience I had if it wasn't for Brenda. I will hopefully be able to have her again and I absolutely recommend her to others.

My experience with Brenda was amazingly positive. At first I was skeptical about the need for a doula but I am so glad I found her! Brenda took the time to get to know me and my needs. She introduced me to pain management exercises I hadnt thought of and was willing to practice and explore the ones I had. I felt comfortable discussing my birth plans with Brenda and it was nice to know I could count on her to be there when my special day arrived. I will never forget how comforting and supportive Brenda was during my labor. I had an amazing natural birth experience. I truly believe I couldnt have done it without her. She knew what I needed and found many ways to make labor a more pleasant experience. She stayed by my side for every minute of it. When my mother and sister arrived she found a nice way to tell them I would prefer if they stayed in the waiting room until it was time to push. After the birth of my beautiful daughter, I still felt supported by Brenda. She checked up on me through texts and home visits. She even came over to help with chores and bring me an amazing homemde gift! Having Brenda as my doula for the birth of my first child is something I will never forget. Im confident Brenda will continue to provide life-changing support and comfort for women :)
