Testimonial for Barb Fraumeni

Barb was our doula and helped us to welcome our first child into the world in early March.  As first-time parents we were unsure of how we would our labour would go, and were quite anxious about the whole process.  We were introduced to Barb who agreed to be our doula, and we could not be happier that she took us on.  Barb provided us knowledge, comfort and confidence beforehand.  During labour she was invaluable.

From the perspective of the new mother, she provided me with in-depth knowledge that allowed me to feel as comfortable as possible while labouring.  She was able to suggest changes, provide support and encourage me throughout the labour.  After the birth, Barb was also incredible- she helped us capture some family photos when we were all comfortable, provided advice on breastfeeding, and shared in our excitement at becoming new parents.

From the perspective of the new father, Barb helped me to be a better support during labour.  Barb reminded me of plans we had for the labour and suggested ways to be more helpful, involved and at ease.  Barb also provided a crucial set of extra hands which was immensely helpful, both during and after labour.

We cannot thank Barb enough for her help and support.  Barb took the time to get to know us beforehand, followed-up to ensure that the final months and weeks of pregnancy were going well.  She helped us a great deal and it was a pleasure to have her be a part of our child's birth.
