We had a wonderful experience working with Eman.  She is so well spoken and purposeful and thoughtful with her words, which is important in the birthing environment.  She has a gentle and kind demeanour, and is extremely well educated.  She made me feel very comfortable and supported, and since labor was incredibly long we truly needed her support.  She was informative and spoke up when my husband and I needed a sounding board, but stayed in the background when we needed it to be just us.  She did this all seamlessly.  I recommend all my friends and patients (I am an acupuncturist) use a doula based on our experience.  I couldn't recommend her more highly!

I was around 6 months pregnant with my first baby when I met Donna for a consultation. I wanted to have a natural water birth. I knew I needed a kind and supportive person to help my husband and myself through the laboring process. I found that in Donna. She was knowledgeable and very supportive throughout my pregnancy and birth experience. Donna offered books and other literature on both the physical and emotional aspects of giving birth. All of which really helped put my mind at ease. Donna was always available if I had any questions or concerns. During our prenatal visits we discussed my birth plan. Donna was on the spot when it came time. My labor progressed very quickly and Donna offered lots of relaxation tips and reassurance. Donna was awesome. Once my daughter was born she offered tips on breastfeeding too, which helped since it was all so new to me. She offered ways to utilize the placenta, by encapsulating it and by making a tincture. Donna also made an adorable heart shaped memento from the dehydrated umbilical cord!

We used Donna's placenta encapsulation service and were very pleased.  First of all, Donna let us know exactly what the benefits were and she also told us how to get the placenta to take home.  She picked the placenta up at our place and encapsulated it at her own - which was very convenient.  I got a whopping 270 pills and started taking 3 a day immediately.  My baby blues were short lived - just 4 days or so - compared to my first birth where I was in the dump for at least a few weeks.  I feel energized and my milk production has been great.  I am very pleased that we sought Donna's help and we would definitely refer her services to other new moms!
