Client Testimonials for Amie Scharfe

Jason Miller

We were extremely pleased with the services offered by Amie. From the initial meeting at our house, we found her to be comforting, easy to get along with, friendly, and knowledgeable. She made us feel as if we had known her forever.

Throughout the experience, she was completely available to answer all of our questions: whether sending us links to documentation specific to our concerns leading up to labour, going over the various options, and answering our questions. Amie helped us to prepare for the birth; providing guidance and imparting her wisdom and experience to aid us in coming up with our birth plan and preferences. She was always there for us - even some of those late nights after the birth as frazzled, sleep-deprived parents just needing reassurance.

We had a very enjoyable birth experience, which would not have been possible without Amie. She was there right from the start at early labour to provide support and encouragement. When she arrived, she just blended right in, ensuring that the staff were honouring our preferences, providing advice, guidance, encouragement, and doing everything possible to make us comfortable. Amie provided a calming, reassuring environment for the birth experience. She was always there to say just the right words at the right time ("what you are feeling is perfectly normal"), or to provide a reassuring smile.

We feel blessed to have had Amie be a part of a very special experience for us. Not only did we introduce a new son to our family, but we feel that we have also gained a close friend and relative in Amie.
