Before I go into specific details let me first start by saying I highly recommend Amber for any birth especially a first time family. Once my husband and I found out we were expecting I immediately knew I wanted a doula. Not only did I know that I was so in over my head I also knew my husband needed the support through delivery as much as he disagreed with me. When I met Amber I knew she was a great match for us. Amber has a bubbly personality where you immediately feel comfortable with her and know this is someone you can trust. Through my pregnancy she was my first point of contact l. Any question or concern I would ask her day or night. She never made me feel like I was asking too many questions and always validated my feelings and concerns. The night of my delivery I had called her several times even in the late hours. She continued to give me reassurance and positive reinforcement until I was ready for her to come over. At the hospital she realized my needs and immediately jumped into action. She found me blankets, juice, and extra pillows before the nurses could even ask what I needed. At one point my husband was feeling quite faint. She also comforted him with juice and candy to make sure he stayed on his two feet for the delivery. The pictures she took of the labor process were incredible. I never thought I would want pictures of my delivery but so thankful we have them. It was such a wonderful experience and those pictures she took are something to cherish. After the birth we hired Amber for postpartum serives. One day in particular I did not know what exactly I needed done or even wanted done. Amber sat with me for over 2 hours and just talked with me. Just the conversation made me feel great. She made me laugh, made me feel supported and made me feel like I was talking to a true friend. With so many emotions running through you after birth, to feel relaxed was worth every penny. My whole pregnancy was truly amazing and I have Amber to thank!

Amber was a wonderful doula. I work out of town a lot so I wasn't always around while my fiance was pregnant with our first child. Amber stayed in regular contact with my fiance while I was away, which gave me peace of mind and helped my fiance. Amber was also very knowledgeable about what my fiance should expect during her last trimester and provided a number of suggestions that were useful and beneficial. She was there for our daughter's birth and took great photos, and never came close to overstepping her bounds with the nurses and doctors. In short, we would hire Amber again without any hesitation!

Amber was an amazing asset to my birth team. She was always available throughost my pregnancy to answer questions or provide referrals. Amber saved me during my transition period. I was ready and crying to be taken to the hospital. Once she arrived her demeanour and knowledge helped me calm down to handle the pain and bring my baby down. I loved seeing the pictures she took during my birth and will cherish those forever. Following birth she was available for postpartum and breastfeeding questions. I feel like Amber will forever be a part of our family and hope to have her as our doula when we are ready for baby #2.

I was a Doula sceptic at first, but after the experience my wife and I had with Amber I am a true believer of the value of a good doula! Amber was truly a blessing, and her help was invaluable. She made my wife feel comfortable and relaxed, and was great at taking charge when necessary.

 

Amber was with us for 27 hours!!! And she was amazing every second of it.

 

We had a long and tough labor and I honestly don't believe the experience would have been what it was without her.

Amber was the perfect addition to our birth team.  My fiancé and I were first time parents, and were both nervous about the birth process. Amber provided us with knowledge and piece of mind leading up to the birth. She met with us several times, went to doctor appointments, was always available for a phone call or text, and helped us to design our birth plan and decide what kind of birth we wanted. During labor, she brought a calming and reassuring supportive energy to the experience. It was nice to have an extra set of educated eyes and ears on what was happening. We will definitely be asking her to join our birth team again, should we be blessed with another pregnancy in the future.
