Having Peaceful Passage Doulas as our birthing team was such a positive experience! At first, my partner and I weren't sure we needed a doula but I’m so glad we decided to as it helped us feel more comfortable and empowered with the whole experience. Justine and Brenda were always super quick and responsive to any questions we had as well as super knowledgable with their answers to those questions. We always felt heard and understood with what we wanted for our birth experience and never felt judged or pushed into anything we didn't feel comfortable with. Having Justine at my birth was honestly so much more than I could have imagined. My partner is supportive but there's no way he would have been able to be all that I needed in those moments. Justine was so helpful with different techniques and knowledge in all stages of birth and made the whole process easier to manage. I’m so glad we decided to hire Peaceful Passage Doulas, Justine and Brenda to be our birth team. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

I had my baby in July this year and I have to say that I am soo grateful for Justine and Brenda! I don't know how I would have gotten through my pregnancy without their help. I had a difficult pregnancy journey and they were available from the day I signed up with them. Brenda and Justine were a wealth of resource for any issues I had. There was always someone on call. Post delivery when I needed someone for hands on post partum care they were so helpful. I also had the privilege of using their reiki services, belly binding and tuck in ceremony which helped me process my post birth trauma. If you are looking for a doula I highly recommend peaceful doulas. 



My partner and I were so glad we found Brenda and Justine. They work together so well to make sure you feel heard and that they are advocating for you. The drop by visits were very informative and positive which made me feel really prepared and excited for delivery day. They were also super quick to reply questions on whatsapp which was really reassuring knowing that they were there for me. Thanks Justine and Brenda!

All my mother friends said they wished they had a doula. I wasn't going to regret not getting one like them. Found peaceful passages and the lovely ladies who facilitated the most informed and supportive pregnancy and birth experience. Having a team to help answer questions and concerns and be supportive when emotions and hormones are all over the place was the most amazing. 


When it came to my birth Justine was there for us! We could not imagine what our birth would of looked like without her. All the support, calming, relaxing environment. Having someone to support me and my partner was everything. Our birth did not go as planned but with Justines help it remained positive and she help us advocate for ourselves. To take the time to get composed and make informed decisions that where right for us! 

We will recommend these lovely ladies to every pregnant woman who will listen. We also will use them for our second child! 

A holistic approach to child birth with positive birth experience is what I got out of it and am so proud of my birth because of their help! 


Thank you Justine and Brenda. 



I was very satisfied choosing Peacefull Passage Doulas helping us with the birth of our son. The two have their own specialty in knowledge and understanding in pregnancy. Can't thank you two enough for being present through the whole experience, and what we learned.



I am very grateful to have found Justine and Brenda for my third trial of labour. Although things did not go as planned, I am really happy with how Justine assisted me in my hour of need massaging my hand with essential oil to soothe and calm me while I felt overwhelmed by my situation. I still feel very touched by her attentive care. Thank you ladies ??

My husband and I had the incredible privilege of having Justine present during the birth of our daughter. Justine had many hats to wear during my birth. She grounded me when I became overwhelmed and scared. I distinctly remember looking into her eyes when the doctor mentioned the possibility of having a c-section and our connection gave me the courage to fight through my fear and safely bring our baby into the world on my own. Justine brought a deep sense of calm to each phase of the birth. She created a relaxing environment (even in the hospital) with candles, lavender oils and a quiet voice. She also helped ease my discomfort during labor with multiple different techniques. Finally, she was my advocate and encouraged me to do what I needed to make this birth successful. There was no judgement placed at any point in the process and she supported me with my choice to have an epidural. I truly believe Justine has a calling to do this work and anyone who has her support during their pregnancy and birth are incredibly blessed.

Thank you so much Justine and Peaceful Passage Doulas.

Justine was an amazing person to have present at our sons birth! She brought a sense of calm and consistency to the hospital. She also was able to support my husband and how he can help me. We really felt she was an important person in our journey. Thank You Justine <3
