Testimonial for Wildflower Birth Collective

If you are looking for doulas who will tell you how it is, then look no further. These ladies will not sugar coat things, yet they inform you empathetically. They are honest and upfront. They will advocate for you and your rights from the get-go. They will ALWAYS respect your decisions. They will make you feel powerful and help you trust your body even when the world is crumbling around you. Trust me, I know because I gave birth to a preemie during a pandemic. I hired Steph and Michelle because my support system was stuck in Ontario, and it was the best decision. Without a support system, I had no one to watch my daughter at my planned homebirth. So they BOTH offered to come to my home birth. Cue happy crying. 

They were always there when I was upset, which was a lot. I was scared of covid, uneasy, in pain but they eased all of that. They gave me tons of resources and information. They comforted me, loved my family during my pregnancy, and helped us make informed decisions. Then my water broke. A MONTH EARLY. The birthing plan took a 180. I was so sad and concerned that we had to go to the hospital during covid. Michelle was there moments after we arrived. She was our rock during my labor. She reminded me this was MY birth, MY labour, MY choices. When they wanted to invade my body to hook clamps to my baby’s head in utero to easily (for them) survey his heartbeat, I was able to say NO, check it another way. And I said it with confidence. So they found another way that let me move during labour, and he was fine.  I mourn that I did not have a homebirth. Steph and Michelle mourned with me. Post-natal, they touched base with me regularly and continued to support us emotionally and physically.

These women are passionate, kind, loving, supportive, enlightening, strong, knowledgeable, they advocate, provide care for dads(which is SO important), so many more things to say, but I maxed out on my word count.
