In late Spring of 2015 at 7 1/2 months pregnant my partner and I realized we needed some extra support knowing that our labour and delivery date was fast approaching. Like most new parents, we had anxiety and restlessness not knowing what labour and delivery would entail. Luckily a guardian angel appeared and her name was Carol Ann.

After a brief telephone call which she very professionally guided me through the service she offers, I felt I had made a very special and knowledgeable friend. She was excellent in the way she conducted herself with my family and my husband. During a very stressful time when all you really want to happen is to have everything fall into place. After 48 hours of labour and two trips to two different hospitals - she was by my side when I needed her. When I had questions she answered them. When I needed a cheerleader she cheered for me.

Reliable, resilient and funny - Carol Ann helped me welcome my daughter into this world. We are pleased with her services and would recommend her as a Doula to anyone.

Carol Ann is one amazing lady. I truly believe that I could not have gotten through the birth of my child without her. Her knowledge, compassion, kindness and humor were such a huge help throughout the whole process. She was there to help prepare myself and my husband and give us the confidence we needed in birthing our second child. Anything at all that we needed she was there and always with a huge smile on her beautiful face! Carol Ann was there to give me the courage I needed to push through. She believed in me when I was tired and wanted to give up. She helped me focus and regroup and gave me the strength I needed to birth my beautiful baby boy! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this amazing lady! If you choose Carol Ann to be your Doula you will be getting an positively amazing support system! You will NOT be disappointed!

At about 30 weeks pregnant I started researching the benefits of hiring a birth doula. I really liked the idea of having extra support and expertise during my labour - for myself, as well as for my husband. I asked my midwife for a referral and she recommended Carol Anne. I contacted her and I'm very happy that I did. Right from the start, Carol Anne was extremely friendly and very easy to talk to. She was almost as excited as I was about my upcoming labour and she even jumped in her car and headed over right after my water broke when I wasn't even having contractions yet. Fifty-one and a half long hours later, I had my baby boy in my arms - and Carol Anne was there through it all. On the first day I labored at home as planned but eventually I needed a transfer of care to hospital and to an OBGYN because I wasn't progressing into active labour. It was extremely comforting to have Carol Anne with me when my midwife couldn't be and to know that she would be an advocate of my birth plan no matter where I delivered. Carol Anne was so helpful in suggesting different labouring positions for me to try and encouraging me through difficult moments with breathing and relaxation techniques. Her physical and emotional support truly proved to be an invaluable part of my birth experience. It would not have been the same without her.
