Testimonial for Junko Watanabe Ziemba

After finding out my family would not be able to help us (thanks to COVID) me and my husband were in a panic. How would we cope as first time parents without any support? We decided to hire a postpartum doula but I was still nervous about having a stranger in the house, seeing me at my worst and possibly encroaching on family time. My fears were immediately settled upon talking to Junko. We weren’t really sure what to expect from a doula but Junko made sure to explain what to expect the first weeks of parenthood and clearly communicated a plan for us which made it so much easier. That being said she was also very accomadating to on the spot needs/situations and was ready to "go with the flow" of our family. I didn’t need to worry about a “stranger” or feeling nervous about looking and feeling my worst, Junko's open friendly attitude made us instantly feel at ease, it was like having a friend or a family member there with you. Junko loves what she does and it shows with her incredibly in-dept knowledgeable about baby care - she knows literally everything!!! She made wonderful suggestions on our babies care that even our paediatrician picked up on later. She taught us so much and we are better, more confident parents because of her! We ended up buying things she recommended and they were perfect for us and saved us so much time and hassle. She is well connected to groups and gave us excellent recommendations on lactation consultants and other support services. It’s easy to feel like a failure and be hard on yourself in those first few weeks but Junko was caring, kind and supportive to me and my husband, it made all the difference. We were so sad when Junko left. In three weeks she became a saviour to our family. We honestly wouldn’t have gotten through it without her. It was hands down the best money we spent. If your thinking about a doula then do yourself/your family/your baby a favour and absolutely 100% hire Junko!
