We could not imagine our birth journey without Amy. Her skillful and empathetic support and encouragement was EVERYTHING. Right from the beginning, we knew she was the right fit for us.
Before birth, Amy met with my husband and I a few times to work through any questions/worries we had, discuss birth preferences and provide information for us to make informed choices. Before going into active labour, Amy facilitated a beautiful and meaningful distraction activity - making a cast of my pregnant belly, leaving us with such a special keepsake. During active labour at the hospital, just wow. Amy was outstanding. She helped us to ask questions and advocate for ourselves. Her coaching offered words of support and encouragement assisting greatly in pain management. She was there in difficult and joyful moments, helping us to stay present and validating our feelings. She came to our home afterwards to share some amazing pictures she took during labour and to process and celebrate the experience of bringing our precious little girl into the world!
Amy helped us to harness an incredible trust in the birthing process, reminding us of our and our baby’s important roles in the process. I felt personally empowered before, during and after birth thanks to the incredible support Amy provided my husband and I. We are eternally grateful for Amy and the role she played during this life changing transition into parenthood.
I had such an amazing birth experience thanks to Amy. She was super knowledgeable and supportive. When I was in the delivery room, there were a lot of things going on and I was able to block everything out and focus on Amy's voice. She kept me calm and relaxed. She was also great at giving my husband ideas on how to help me during my contractions as I couldn't speak. She was my voice, my support and the best birthing partner I could ask for. I highly recommend Amy and if I have another baby, she will be my first call.
Amy was our doula for the birth of our son. Right from the moment we met her my husband and I knew we had met someone special! Her calm and friendly personality drew us right away. And when the time for birth came, she was a calming, guiding and supportive force for me as well as my husband. I am truly grateful for her and her knowledge, and support over the most intense days of my life. In the future if we decide to expand our family, Amy is the first person I will be calling!
