Isabelle was our doula for our first baby and she was covering for our regular doula who was leaving on vacation. I have been so pleasantly surprised by all the help and support Isabelle has provided, especially since we didn't get time to go over a plan before I was in labour. Isabelle came over to our home and helped me get set up breastfeeding after the birth as well as stopping by in the hospital. During the birth she was always around either supporting me or my husband and making sure the mood was calm and stress free. She has also checked in with me via text to make sure everything is going smoothly. Would recommend Isabelle to anyone!
Isabelle was my doula for my third child, born 01/18/18, and what a difference having a doula makes!! First or fifth child, I say you need a doula! Her prenatal appointments helped me to work out some of my fears from my previous birth experiences, and she helped me to feel supported and confident. After my son was born, she was incredibly supportive and helpful and knew just what to do to help our family and to help me. She really went above and beyond. She is very caring and supportive and also quite skilled, knowing when to step in and just what to do and have on hand. She is very inclusive and made everyone in our family feel very loved and supported. I can't express enough gratitude for her. Thanks, Belle!!
Isabelle was an amazing doula! She met with us both and right from the start made us feel very comfortable. She is outgoing but also can be soft-spoken when she needs to be. She was clear in our first meeting that choosing a doula was a very personal choice and she didn't want us to commit without discussing it in private first. We left that first meeting with a resounding yes! She met with us 2 more times to discuss how we wanted our birth to go and it was great to talk through all aspects of the birth with her. During labour she was great to adapt on the fly to both my needs and the needs of my partner. She was so good at knowing what I needed and modifying her support to ensure she was giving me the best pain relief. Isabelle was very positive throughout the whole experience. Her voice was soft and calm throughout and this was critical in refocussing me to breath and power through each contraction.
My partner felt confident knowing she was there and was able to rely on her guidance to help me through labour.
I would highly recommend her for anyone considering having a doula. She was all the things I could have hoped for and more!
In August 2017, Isabelle was there to help my wife through the beginning of labour. I was a 13 hour drive away because baby decided to come 4 weeks early. On very short notice, Isabelle came over to support my wife as soon as she heard she was in labour. I didn't know if I was going to make it or not for the birth. Luckily enough, Isabelle helped take a supporting role for my wife and she did an amazing job. By the time I got to town, labour had slowed down, yet Isabelle stuck with us all day (after helping out all night). She supported both of us through the labour and birth until that night (24 hour labour). I don't know what we would have done without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Isabelle is an incredible doula! Her passion and personal experience will make her an invaluable part of any birth team. As first time parents my husband and I felt encouraged, supported, and empowered to have the best possible birth outcome. Isabelle handled situations that arose during my labor and delivery with confidence and professionalism and I 100% recommend her services.
In nov 2016, I gave birth to my wonderful daughter! Without Isabelle it would never been the same. Everything was easier with her! She's having so much a nice personnality and she is a strong communicator! She gave me so much good advice and was supporting me through all the steps of this wonderful journey. On the top of it, she was there to support my husband as well by giving big lines to follow when he felt challenged by the situation. Isabelle have all great skills to be a doula, especially by beeing close to the essential values in life, having exerience and being able to share confidence to the mom to be! Thanks a lot again for your patience with me and to have been there for every moment when most needed!
