Chris & Lucy

Rebekah helped us tremendously through the birth of our 1st child. She met with us to create our birth plan and talked us through the options we had for the many newborn procedures. She provided us extra information via email and text and answered our numerous questions. She also pointed us towards the evidence based birth classes which were convenient and informational. She was truly there to support us during labor and visited us afterwards to check on us and help with breastfeeding. She went above and beyond and we are so grateful that we had her as a support and resource!

Rebekah was my doula for my second baby, and I’m so grateful to have had her! I really wanted to do natural with my second and having Rebekah there made a huge difference! My labour was fast and strong, she immediately came in and started helping! I never once through the labour thought I wanted an epidural and I know having her there was a big part in that. My husband was also really grateful to have her there as well! I loved the birth plan she helped put together for us and she was so supportive of all the things we wanted and gave us good information on topics we weren’t sure about. She got to capture some photos for us as well! I absolutely recommend her if you are looking for a doula! :)

I cannot describe how much Rebekah has helped us during this pregnancy, labor, and postpartum care. Before our baby boy was born she made sure we had a birth plan done up to what we wanted and asked questions that we hadn’t even thought about. This made the hospital stay so much more enjoyable because all we did was hand our birth an over and everyone was on the same page without confusion as to what we wanted for us and our new addition! 

During labor let me just say I couldn’t have done it without her. She supported me and my husband emotionally and Physically. When I wanted to give up she was there reassuring me even without me saying anything. She helped show my husband how to help me,  making the momeant even more special by helping my husband and me work as a team to bring our little one into the world! 

She also at our request captured some special moments for us that I otherwise would have missed out on

she has checked on me during my postpartum journey and let me know She’s always here to help and/or listen 

she’s truly an amazing doula with a passion and talent to help those during their baby journey. 

I really can’t say enough about her and highly recommend her to anyone! We’re so grateful and blessed to have been able to have her help! It’s one of the best decision we have made!

Rebekah was my doula for my fourth and last baby. I had wanted to use a doula for my third child but it wasn't in our budget and oh how I wish I had her for that birth since it was a (failed) VBA2C and she is incredibly informed and strong.
My fourth baby was a c section and I wasn't really sure it would be worth it to have a doula because of the uncertainty of the surgery, I didn't want to waste her time. She assured me and reassured me many times that I wasn't. She was VERY involved in everything that was going on even prior to birth. Checking on my well-being and babies well-being since she was having some issues, making appointments, meeting my OB prior to with information to hand to her about the benefits of a doula and a c section.
She was at the hospital with us two hours early for the surgery and I'm honestly not even sure when she left. My little lady was a 37 weeker and we expected a healthy, "normal" birth, but she ended up needing to go to the NICU for 5 days and Rebekah showed up during her lunch breaks every day to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed and more. There were times I wasn't able to go to the NICU and she was in my room with me while my husband was with our daughter, she didn't hesitate a bit to offer the help that I would have relied on my husband for.
She celebrated every success my little lady had and still does to this day. She's been an important part of my emotional stability, it seems like she reaches out just in time.

If you ever have the chance to use her, DO IT, you won't regret it!
