Kaitlin was an invaluable resource for us from the early pregnancy until the weeks after the delivery of our beautiful baby boy. Her knowledge of the birthing process enabled us to feel prepared and informed going into the big day. During labour, Kaitlin truly was our shining star. She has the knack to say and do the right things at the appropriate time. She was able to guide mommy through any challenges and made her feel confident in her abilities. Overall, working with Kaitlin for this special day was a great decision and we are extremely satisfied with her competencies as a doula and would not hesitate to work with her again. "
“Before relocating to Moncton mid pregnancy we had never heard of a Doula. After having Kaitlin on hand through the whole process I can’t even imagine why people do not use one every time. Kaitlin was amazing. The birth did not go according to plan due to complications and Kaitlin was a superstar through the whole thing. She is extremely knowledgeable and was a great help in preparing for the birth. She has an amazing “bag of tricks”, many of which came in extremely useful during labour. Both Jeannette and I are extremely pleased to have had Kaitlin there for the birth of Emily Anne Rose on October 23rd, 2010. We would definitely recommend her to any expectant parents who would like to relieve some of the stress around the delivery of their baby”.

Wow…so where to begin.
Thank you for your attention to detail, knowledge, kind heart, and experience. Your skills were exactly what we needed during the birth of Ella.
Matt and I have talked at length about how you were the main factor that kept us going. During times when I felt unsure of myself, and times when we both felt lost, you were there being strong and supportive.
Labour was the most challenging (physically and emotionally) experience of my life. But it is because of you and Matt that I feel PROUD of how everything happened. “Just go with the flow” still rings loud in my head.
Ella is healthy and happy, and the best thing I have ever done in my life.
We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else with us in that delivery room!
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!
~ Heather, Matt, and Ella
When my husband and I found out we were going to have a baby, my friend Kaitlin asked if we wanted her services as a Doula. I immediately said “Sure!”, and then asked, “What IS a Doula?” Kaitlin’s explanation was so exciting that I KNEW I wanted her help. She explained that a Doula was a labour support person for Mom and Dad who is there for emotional support and physical comfort during labour. My husband was a bit sceptical. He didn’t want anybody getting “in the way”of his role as dad at the birth. However, our first meeting with Kaitlin totally convinced us both that she was the right person to have as our Doula. She was calming, encouraging, and gave us ideas on what to expect as labour approached and progressed. My husband was put at ease knowing we would get competent and capable help for the birth of our baby. As my pregnancy progressed, Kaitlin was always there for us. Her prenatal visits were so informative and I always felt comfortable phoning Kaitlin with any questions. She was a fountain of knowledge! The best part for me was the TOTAL assurance that she was only a phone call away. That was so comforting to me. The night I went into labour I felt out of sorts. My husband was convinced that I had indigestion and suggested to go to bed, yet my mom thought it could be labour. We didn’t know what to do. A call to Kaitlin at 1:00am confirmed that she was on her way. As soon as she saw me, and watched me go through a few contractions, she suggested we go to the hospital. That was great advice as my water broke within fifteen minutes of arrival! Kaitlin was amazing through the entire labour. She was calm, and kept us both calm. She talked me through every contraction and was very encouraging. I would absolutely recommend Kaitlin as your Doula! Her good nature, calmness, and knowledge were huge assets to my labour and birth. I would definitely hire her for my next baby!
