When I first mentioned the idea of having a doula to my husband he was hesitant. He worried that the doula would push him aside or minimize his experience. However once he met Corinne he was totally on board. Corinne was warm and kind and patient with all of our questions in the last few months of my pregnancy. We appreciated hearing her own experiences as a mother and her observations from previous clients and were really impressed by how organized and prepared she was. Her birth kit is amazing! She also has an unassuming sense of humour - so we really clicked.
I went into labour 5 days before my due date and had a fast, intense home birth. When Corinne arrived she talked me through what was happening and reassured me all was normal. She was there with anything I needed and anticipated things I didn't even know I wanted - and she worked beautifully with our midwives. After the birth I was stunned that Corinne had gone above and beyond to tidy our home. I really think it was because of Corinne that we had such a positive home birth experience.
We are so grateful that Corinne was there to help us welcome Elliot into this world.
