Our experience with Dianne was perfect! Her ability to help us relax and feel comfortable during the birthing experience was amazing. She was especially helpful after our baby was born, allowing us to bond as a family. She was more than willing to help and share information before and after our birth. I would highly recommend her to friends and family looking for a doula.

My husband and I still talk about Dianne today and what a positive impact she had on my labour and delivery experience. When my water broke, Dianne was readily available and was the first to arrive at my house. She immediately worked on making a comfortable environment for me and gave me massages to help when the contractions came on. She had all these unbelievable techniques to help me work with the pain whether lying in bed, walking around, in the bathtub or in the car on the way to the hospital. She knew that I wanted a childbirth experience without epidural and she really gave me the courage that I could do this with her words. She even guided my husband on what he could do to help me (and trust me he needed it!). My midwife commented that she was the best doula she had ever met and she's been a midwife for over 20 years! Dianne came by to visit us the day after we delivered even though she was making her way home to Calgary from Toronto. I really highly recommend Dianne to anyone looking to hire a doula. Trust me, you won't regret it. She cares about your needs and when you're in labour, it really makes a difference to feel that you have someone you can count on.

Dianne is a kind, warm hearted person.  I remember the first day we met she asked me how she could make the birth more comfortable for me and filled with compassion and love.  And it was!  Dianne is the type of person who makes you feel you know them a whole lifetime. I also felt like I was surrounded by close family during the birth. I wish her a lot of succes in her career as she is very dependable and knowledgeable.

We hired Dianne to help with the delivery of our first child in December of 2018. After meeting her through the Calgary Doula Association, I was struck with her friendly and calm demeanor, and no-nonsense approach. We had two pre-natal visits, in which we determined what was the most important things to us during delivery, and went through some tips and tricks that might help smooth out the early labour. Turns out, we had a very quick labour & delivery, and didn't use many of those things we discussed - no time! - but Dianne was supportive through the entire process. First by phone, while we were at home and questioning when to go to the hospital, and then bedside during the actual delivery. We also learned tons from her during our postnatal visit, on breastfeeding, baby wearing and other topics. And on top of that, she was able to take the best photos of the delivery. I was a little pre-occupied during that time, and didn't notice the camera out at all; but she captured the whole thing perfectly. She was a great support for both myself and my husband.
