As soon as we met Steph for our initial consultation we knew she was the doula for us. We'd met a few before her but she stood out from the rest and something just clicked. I've always been afraid of childbirth and worried about whether I would be able to cope with the pain, but Steph made us feel totally at ease and I knew that with her by my side I could accomplish anything. On the big day she brought out my inner warrior and kept me calm and focused, even through the complications and surprises. Thanks to her amazing support I was able to have a natural un-medicated birth and the whole experience was overwhelmingly positive and empowering. I can't wait to do it all again! We had the best possible start to parenthood and words cannot describe how grateful we are for everything Steph has done for us. I highly recommend her to anybody having a baby, whether it's your first or fourth, her support is invaluable.
We couldn't imagine going through our birth experience without Stephanie. She went above and beyond our expectations in so many ways.
As first time parents, the knowledge, care and support Stephanie provided us was incredible. She is warm, personable and very passionate about what she does.
I can't stress enough that, not only, was she a great support to my wife, she was also a huge support to me.
Having Stephanie with us before, during and after our sons birth made the life-changing experience of having our first child a much more calm and positive one than it would have been without her.
Steph was an incredibly positive presence at both of my births. The smile never left her face, even as tears of joy fell as she held my boys. When I think back to those two magical days, I think of Steph and her dedication, warmth and calm demeanour and how she helped me bring these two lives into existence. I love her so much, and you will too. Her passion for the whole process and her dedication to your birth plan are truly inspiring. Any woman (and partner) would be so lucky to experience her birth with Stephanie Penner at their side.
