Testimonial for Barb Fraumeni

Barb has been at my side for the births of all three of my children. She has been a source of knowledge and comfort. I have been fortunate enough to have three successful homebirths and Barb's experience and understanding of a woman's needs in labour really helped me through each of them. Barb was invaluable in her ability to suggest different and helpful positions, strategies for coping with pain, and providing encouragement to carry on. Especially in my first labour, but also in my third, it was immensely helpful to have Barb present as she arrived and provided support before the midwife arrived and helped provide support and coach me through the earlier stages of labour.

I strongly believe that the services of a doula help provide a woman, and her family, with the best chance to have a positive and more empowered labour, which will help set the tone for a much more successful postpartum recovery- Barb did this for me, three times, and I am ever thankful.

I was fortunate to not require interventions, but I was quite confident that Barb, myself, and my partner understood what our preferred outcome and our plan was during childbirth and in the early postpartum period. I was put at ease knowing that Barb would be an advocate for my wishes, and that I would not act out of panic or without considering my choices carefully. Barb was a source of comfort, strength and confidence.

From the perspective of my partner, he appreciated the knowledge and expertise that Barb imparted to us, and was very grateful to have a person to assist with providing support during, and perhaps more so after the birth of our children. My partner was able to relax and be present for all the moments after birth, while Barb did a fantastic job helping settle us in with our new family member.

We highly recommend Barb as a doula.
