We chose to hire a doula to help us feel better prepared for the birth of our second child and to help make the experience as positive as possible. After a difficult birth with our first child, we were specifically attracted to the idea that hiring a doula reduced our risk of unecessary interventions during labour and delivery. Sherry's own experiences in childbirth help her relate to and empathize with clients who feel disappointed with their previous birth experiences.

Throughout my pregnancy and into the post-partum period, Sherry was always available to provide support and answers to my questions via email. She established a wonderful relationship in which I felt supported and respected. She always encouraged me to trust in my body and its natural abilities without questioning it. She encouraged me to transfer care providers to ensure I was being followed by a team whose approach better matched my needs. Sherry made her lending library and TENS machine available to us to prepare and handle the early stages of labour.

Given the speed at which my labour progressed, Sherry arrived at the hospital and provided a calming presence to a labour that was well-established. She provided support by ensuring I had food and water as needed, and she stood by my side after delivery when my husband had his turn having skin-to-skin with our baby.

Post delivery Sherry ensured I had the opportunity to debrief on my birth experience. She even lent me items to help with the transition from one child to two, such as a wrap to promote baby-wearing so I can be present with my oldest child.

All-in-all a great experience!
