This was the second time we used Brittany as a Doula. Again she went above and beyond, we thought that this being my third child labour would have been quicker, but instead it lasted a long 2 days during which Brittany was present for.
She captured amazing images of my labour and birth, stayed with me while my husband tended to our children until we could find another babysitter. She even bought our favorite chocolate bars for after the birth!
Brittany's love, knowledge, and compassion for this job is amazing. She was made for it.
If we were to ever have another child she would be the woman we call again! Thank you again.
At first, we were apprehensive about getting a Doula, but thank goodness we were able to get out of our own way and chose to go with our Doula, Brittany, it was the best decision that we could've made. Brittany outlined the decisions that we may have to make during the labor and birthing process and helped us develop our birth preferences, highlighting what was most important to us.
During labor, she was there every step of the way, from easing the pain of my contractions to assisting with the birth itself. Immediately after our baby boy was born, she helped us ensure that our birth preferences were met, including hand expressing our babies first meal versus allowing the nurses to turn to formula right away. She stayed until we felt comfortable and settled in our post-partum room, and provided excellent communication both before, during, and after having our baby.
Not only would I recommend making a Doula a part of your journey, but I would specifically recommend Brittany, as she went above and beyond and made us feel extremely comfortable the entire time. To have Brittany as part of the best day of our lives was invaluable, and we cannot thank her enough!
Brittany was amazing! Without her love, support and eagerness to push me to the end I probably would have given up. She was outstanding with my Fiance (we are now married) who was a first time dad, I know he felt lost without her help and kind words. We loved her so much we hired her again for the birth of our next child in March.
