Stephanie Heather

My husband and I were so grateful to have Sydney as part of the birth of our son. As first time parents you go through so many things, new things, scary things, exciting things. It is a lot to take in and a lot to remember, but having Sydney with us through pregnancy and at the birth was such a blessing. I could not imagine doing it without her, we would have been quite lost and I know things would not have gone as smoothly and stress free. Having someone there who is somewhat removed from the emotions of the whole experience I think is a must and Sydney couldn’t have done anything better. We are so so incredibly grateful to have had her as part of the incredible experience that was having our beautiful baby boy.

Sydney was an extremely knowledgeable and supportive doula. She listened intently to our birth wishes and helped us device a tailored birth plan. Sydney was very supportive of my extreme desire to have a VBAC and aided us with getting us all the information and support we needed to have a successful VBAC. She was incredible during the labour and delievry both anticipating and fulfilling our needs in a very emotional and overwhelming time. She was able to remind us of things that we managed to overlook and that was wonderful. I am proud to report that I had a successful VBAC and the journey to  there was made easier with the support of Sydney! I would highly recommend her to any moms looking for a knowledgeable, caring, and Informative doula.

Sydney helped us  few months before and after my delivery. she was our extra set of hands. She was very informative and accommodating. we never had problems contacting her and setting our meeting dates. She even extended for a bit post delivery. It was fun having her as our doula!

We were so lucky to have Sydney accompany us through my pregnancy, through labour and birth. She was always prepared and helped us make a birth plan to suit our desires and needs. Sydney was mindful and reminded us of details we would've overlooked ourselves. Our birth experience would not have been the same if she were not there with us. As she continues her journey to becoming a midwife, I am so happy to watch her spread joy. You can really tell that she loves what she does.

Thank you so much for your assistance in my home birth Sydney! You were so willing to go with the flow and give me exactly what I wanted for a support person. I know my midwife was grateful for your assistance as well, especially when things started to get a bit stressful and urgent. All the best in your training!
