Words cannot express my deep gratitude to Amanda for all she did for us as a doula during my labour. Amanda visited our home prior to childbirth to ask my husband and I what we wanted from this birth. I had a very challenging labour and could not sit, lay down or sleep once the contractions started. Amanda came quicker than we had originally discussed because of this situation. I laboured for 39 hours and was in extreme pain. Amanda was so attentive and intuitive as to how I was doing throughout labour, and quickly responded to my needs whether it was of a physical nature or emotional/mental encouragement. In the end, I required a C-section and Amanda stayed by my side while I slept in recovery. In the days that followed, Amanda offered to visit and check in on how we were doing. Initially, my husband and I had decided to go without a doula, but we were so grateful that we opted for one in the end. My husband was fully supportive throughout the entire process, however, he had no idea what to expect given this was our first child. With Amanda's skill, knowledge and collaboration, we had a significantly positive experience. She offered both my husband and I the emotional and physical support we needed. Thank you, Amanda, for helping us through this painful yet beautiful journey of childbirth! ~ Joyce Wang

My wife gave birth to our first child nearly one year ago and Amanda was our doula. I don't have enough words to express our appreciation for Amanda's care over us as we expected our son's birth. She was an incredible support to my wife through a long and difficult labour, and continued to provide support in our early days as parents. As a first-time father, Amanda helped me greatly, showing me ways to support my wife during and after labour. We are so grateful for Amanda's care, support, and friendship as we welcomed our son into the world. ~ Patrick Hsu

I met Amanda before I got pregnant, but I only found out about her passion to become doula after I was expecting. My pregnancy was very emotional time for me and she really helped get through those not so happy days. We talked a lot about my baby and that always calmed me down. When my due date was approaching, she shared lots of resources that helped me get physically and emotionally ready for labour. She was holding my hand, encouraging me and calming me down when things did not go as planed. My daughter was born healthy. I am so thankful she was there and made my experience so magical.

Thank you Amanda
