Danielle is professional, competent and intuitive. As a first time mom, I had no idea what to expect during labour, so I hired Danielle as my birth doula. Danielle is confident in her abilities and kind in her approach. She helped me prepare for labour in our initial interview, introducing me to exercises and asking questions to prompt my thinking about a birth plan. I felt prepared when Labour Day finally came. Danielle arrived at the house before I was dilated enough to go to the birth centre. She put my worried family at ease. She knew when to call the midwife and what to do when my contractions became more intense. Danielle has MAGICAL massage hands! She encouraged me and helped my husband feel supportive during the labour process (it was his first time too!). I highly recommend Danielle as a doula if you want a positive, incredible birth experience like I had.

Hiring Danielle was the best decision we've made, especially when dealing with our colicky little one. Her patience and ability to comfort him, no matter how fussy he gets, are incredible. She's always on time, pays attention to the smallest details, and communicates everything so well.

Having Danielle as our night doula has been an absolute blessing. She has not only met but exceeded the high standards we had hoped for in a caregiver. I trust her completely and am deeply grateful for the peace of mind she brings to our home each night.

I cannot recommend Danielle highly enough. Any family would be lucky to have her support and expertise. She deserves all the recognition for the outstanding work she does, and I hope this review helps other parents find their way to her. Thank you, Danielle, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything

I can't say enough positive things about the postpartum doula services provided by Danielle. When faced with an emergency during the birth, Danielle was a calm, knowledgeable presence, and helped us understand our options so that we could make the right decision. Her emotional support was invaluable during those uncertain moments and in the first few days postpartum.  As first-time parents without family nearby, her expertise was a godsend. From swaddling techniques to baby care basics like nail-cutting and bathing, she patiently taught us everything we needed to know. And her dedication to our baby's well-being was evident in every interaction. We are beyond grateful for Danielle's support and highly recommend her services to any new parents in need of expert guidance.

Danielle was fabulous. She helped Rosa and me with getting our daughter to sleep, new foods, feeding techniques, and new cooking recipes. She was also kind and gentle with our daughter. We are very thankful for her excellent care!

We are very happy we purchased the labour and post-partum package from Danielle. Her easygoing and relaxed demeanour, thoughtfulness in regards to our needs, and knowledge about labour and newborns helped keep the energy calm, positive and relaxed for me. This extended into the overnight help we received from her the first week our baby boy came home. I would highly recommend Danielle if you are wanting extra support for this momentous life occasion!

Ten out of ten! We can’t recommend Danielle enough to first time parents. In our prenatal meetings with Danielle she helped us create our birth plan, introduced us to Labour & Delivery (L&D) terminology, helped walk us through potential birth situations, and showed us spinning babies preparation exercises. While in L&D she was a calm presence when everything else felt chaotic for myself and my partner. Having an experienced doula by our side helped make the experience more manageable. Danielle continually reached out to us to check in postpartum and helped with breast feeding support. We are so happy we choose Danielle in joining our journey to become parents.

Danielle was an absolute dream addition to our prenatal, labour, birth, and post partum. Her energy is very calm and patient, and she really knows her stuff. She’s very generous of her time, and really cares about not just baby, but Mom and Dad too. The whole experience would have been so much different without her! Her hands are miracle workers at relieving contraction pains, she’s great at coaching Dad  through exercises to help Mom out, and the overnights post partum with her are an absolute TREAT. We definitely will be bringing her back on our team for the next pregnancy!

Danielle was an amazing help! She supported our family with post partum overnight support. She took great care of our infant overnight - we always slept well knowing our baby was being cared for by a professional we knew we could trust. We would not hesitate to recommend Danielle to others!

This was first time being parents and far from our country with no support from family or relatives. Danielle helped me go through this phase with less stress. She has provided me with enough guidance on how to take care of my new born till she adjusted with the new world. We were really worried on how to deal with the new member during pregnancy. Reached out to Danielle through some website and referrals and she gave me much needed moral support to cross the initial phase. We were new to Canada and Danielle introduced us to couple of people here. Am so happy that we met Danielle not just as a doula but as a caring friend/family member with whom we can share/ask for any info we need. She helped us with bathing new born, teaching breast feeding, sharing info on taking care of new borns or being a new mother, helping with other needs for the baby like release colic, exercises for poop, etc., She was very kind and flexible with the timings to accomodate our convenience.  We would strongly recommend Danielle as a first choice to anyone who is looking for a Doula to go through their initial parenthood phase with stress-free.

"Danielle was such a great help to us and we truly enjoyed having her with us helping our family get a good first start. Her patience, professionalism and kindness made a great impact for our family. She has been such a dedicated and wonderful doula. We would strongly recommend Danielle."

We hired Danielle as an overnight postpartum doula for our second baby. It was my first time working with a doula, so I wasn’t sure what to expect but looking back now, I honestly don’t know if I would have survived the first month without Danielle! Our baby really struggled with reflux and this negatively impacted his nighttime sleep. Danielle spent countless hours calming, holding, rocking, burping and changing our little guy while I was fast asleep in the next room. Danielle was confident, calm and knowledgeable and allowed me to get some much-needed sleep worry-free. I knew that my baby was safe and in good hands. I would absolutely recommend Danielle to anyone looking for some support with their new baby.

We had such an amazing experience with Danielle! 

We went with a doula to help achieve the type of birth we wanted. We ended up with someone who feels like a member of our family!

The pre-natal eduction was wonderful and very helpful. It went above and beyond pregnancy and infant care.

Danielle was there for us every step of the way during the delivery and so involved post partum. She is easy to contact for a question or just reassurance.

We can't say enough good things about Danielle! 

Thank you Danielle!

Danielle was my doula during labour and postpartum. She is really wonderful and proffessional . She support me a lot she was very caring and kind.

I had a very difficult labor for 28 hours and I can't imagine how I would have coped without the support of Danielle, she helped me a lot. Danielle is also very educated and she gave me a lot of useful tips on child care that I use now and taught me the basics of child care. Danielle is an amazing doula and I highly recommend working with her. Thank you very much Danielle you helped me a lot.

We became parents for the first time and had no experience dealing with kids earlier. Our parents were back in India. We worried about how to take care of our little one. We got the contact of Danielle and reached out her to for support.

We took overnight support as my wife went through a c-section and thought she needs proper rest. Danielle took care of our son very well and we never worried about him during the nighttime. She makes detailed notes of the activities on when he was getting feeding, sleeping, and diaper changes they were great and helpful. Danielle was on time and her knowledge of dealing with a newborn was impressive. We learned how to bath him and some exercises from Danielle. Danielle will give very good information for any doubts we had and send lots of materials to refer. Danielle even helped us with some of the questions we had after the end of her service and she is very approachable and supports newborns with any kind of doubts. It was totally worth hiring Danielle.

Having Danielle as a support through my postpartum made the transition feel smooth and much less over whelming than I had anticipated! She has such passion and knowledge about newborns, and is easy to trust and to depend on! I would absolutely recommend her to others.
