Jessi Aylard

Wendy was nothing short of incredible during our birth experience. We couldn’t have done it without her help and guidance. She very quickly became an intimate extension of our family during labour and was there for anything we needed. She was amazingly supportive, honest, and comforting. Before I even had to think about what I needed or to ask for it in the fog of labour, Wendy was there with the best support, physically and emotionally for myself and my husband. One of the simplest things that I recall so warmly from my birth is after many hours of holding my resolve, Wendy telling me that I could cry and still be strong. It was liberating and exactly what I needed. Wendy held the space for us to experience our empowered birth the way we wanted to. She never shied away from any situation during labour and was a pillar of strength for all of us. I am so thankful for our experience with Wendy and I would recommend her a million times over!
