Here is what a client named Christy Howard has to say about working with Morielle:
Morielle was my doula for my baby who was born July 2023 and I cannot imagine having had this experience without a doula and particularly Morielle. What she provided both in mental, emotional, and physical support, before, during and after the birth was incredible.
She helped talk me though preparing for the birth, asking me questions that compelled me to consider if I was actually preparing mentally and physically for the kind of birth I aspired for, providing tips and tools to support my goals. I had a beautiful pregnancy, and Morielle's advice and support in my third trimester impacted me.
Labour began 2 weeks after my due date, so contrary to my plan, I ended up going in for a hospital induction. Prior to that I labored at the birthing center, which stalled on and off for 2 days. Morielle was there every step of the way, talking us through the hard decisions, and coaching me through the labour.
She was the perfect presence- not overwhelming, but close by when needed. She and my husband tag teamed off each other through long hours. Her presence of mind was an amazing mental foundation for me through an emotional time. She was there for the labour and birth, along side a team of hospital staff, yet still giving me advice, and I appreciated that she perservered through all the chaos. Having a trusted face, in addition to my husband, who understood what was going on and could advocate for me made all the difference.
Though I had an incredibly healthy baby with a natural birth, emotionally I struggled working through everything that had happened completely contrary to my birthing center plan. Morielle talked me through that too, and helped me come to a peace, offering some tools for working through mentally and emotionally.
I could say more, but I highly recommend Morielle as a doula, and would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family, and use her services for myself again.
Here is what a client named Shelby has to say about working with Angela:
Angela was our saving grace through a rough delivery! My original plan was to have a natural birth in a birthing center with no medications. Due to the size of our son I had to be induced a week early which meant my original birth plan went out the window. With Angela by our side the whole labor and delivery I was able to get through induction and she was the reason we didn't have to have an emergency C-section when they realized my son's shoulder was stuck in my hip. She helped to keep my husband and I both calm and empowered through the whole experience. We will always be thankful for her support, presence and expertise!
Here is what a client named Piper Family has to say about working with Danielle:
The day of my firstborns birth my wife was given two high blood pressure readings that forced the pregnancy center to pass us off to a hospital after 4 or more hours of pregnancy. As the back up hospital that we had lined up was full, the pregnancy center and I argued out next steps, while Danielle was supporting my wife. Danielle quickly jumped into action to help us transition to getting to our secondary hospital.
At the hospital Danielle was really able to shine as a doula. I quickly realized how important the right doula for the birth of your child. My wife and I were extremely tired having already been up for nearly 24 hours already and the nurses admitted my wife during a shift change without connecting her to vitals machines or manually taking vitals. Danielle quickly took action to support my wife in this matter getting her help. Over the next 48 hours Danielle stayed with my wife and I in the hospital to see us through. Danielle and I swapped out supporting my wife in everything that she would need from major to minor stuff. While I was also trying to manage doctors, nurses, and "the plan", along with my minor needs at this point too: Eating before the hospital cafe closed at times from reduced staff, sleeping, bathroom breaks. If it had not been for my wife hiring Danielle to be our doula, I think I would have lost it and been in the mental ward or a hospital bed myself not long after my wife had the baby. Danielle also stopped the hospital staff from strong arming me in one direction with some of the team of 20+ hammering me and my wife in their direction to get things done fast, and against my wife's wishes.
Suffice it to say Danielle has completely changed my mind about the doula profession. A great doula makes all the difference. If you are on the border about getting a doula then rest assured knowing that Danielle is one of the best doula's out there, SHE IS A GODSEND!
