Erika Penner

It was wonderful having Becka as our doula. When she met with us prior to the birth experience, she explained what would happen (i.e., at home, at the hospital) in detail which made us feel better prepared as new parents. She attended our labour even though it was not one of her 'on call' days and took amazing photos of the birth and our 'golden hour' with our new daughter. She was extremely flexible in terms of when to meet and always responded promptly to texts. She lent us her tens machine and even made a special trip to drop it off. Overall, we felt very well supported by Becka and I think it certainly improved the labour and birthing experience for both me and my partner. I would highly recommend her services to anyone considering having a doula!

We had Becka as our doula for the birth of our son. Both of us had taken a prenatal class and were somewhat ready and knew what to expect. Yet, when it came to the actual labour there were many times that we thought Becka's support and insight came to great help. She was available right from the beginning of the labour and always had an idea of how to make the experience easier for my partner. She was also a great adovcate for us and suggested options at the hospital that we did not know we had. There were times during the labour that I felt incredibly tired and unable to function and she covered for me so I could have some rest. She's also incredibly friendly and helped us have the labour the way we wanted. Thank you very much Becka!

My wife and I found rebecca around a week or two before we had our child and the experience we had with her was incredibly positive. She was very open, comfortable to be with, and genuinely caring for us during our moment of panic when water broke etc. she truly did make our labour go very smoothly, and without her we wouldn't have felt as confident as we did. 

We would hhappily recommend her to anyone looking to use the power and experience of a doula. She truly is the best person in the industry that we've come across. Her wisdom is highly tuned in to the needs of parental preparation and the subtle fears that especially fathers to be feel.(I know she put my mind to rest)

we just know that Rebecca will deliver extraordinary support and inspiration to any parents to be. We vote Rebecca.;)

sincerely Richard and Reena spicer.

Becka was simply awesome. She knew exactly what to say and do while my contractions were getting more difficult. She was put me in a very calm state and her words were very encouraging. She had a very gentle touch but was also very strong and supportive when required. I would highly recommend Becka. She was even more helpful for my husband as she allowed him to take a rest as well as help guide him with different methods in comforting me.

Becka's kindness, gentleness and empathy was felt throughout our time with her.

When we were going through contractions at the hospital she was ALWAYS by my side rooting me on and coaching my husband.
She knew when to massage me and how. I never had to say much. She just knew what to do. She knew when it was time to stop using the Tens machine and when to move into the bath. She knew when I was thisty...Her intution was spot on.

I had been having strong contractions for so many hours and had not dilated any more than when I arrived at the hospital, I was physcially and mentally spent, but Becka was there with me to help me through it all. Though we were at the hospital for many many hours, Becka's focus was on me at all times. I needed her, and she knew I did.

Becka made my first labour experience the best I could have hoped for, even though there were ups and downs. Her presence, guidance and leadership was of the utmost importantance to my husband and i during this time.

Becka was always accesible and communicative with us and was at the hospital within 30 minutes of us calling her at 2am in the morning. 

We have nothing but good things to say about Becka. Should you be lucky enough to have her as your Doula, you will be in very capable hands.
