As a first-time father, before my wife introduced me to Jen I didn’t really know what a doula did, and I didn’t have a strong opinion about using one. But after meeting Jen, I immediately understood the value of working with her and felt really lucky for securing her services.
She really made my wife feel more comfortable and less worried about giving birth, and I was very grateful to her for this. She also made sure I was involved and instructed me on how to be the best support to my wife in the last few weeks of pregnancy. Her experience and expertise are immediately clear when working with her, and her good humour and positive attitude are great assets in a potentially stressful moment.
In the hospital during delivery, she proved to be an even more vital support system to my wife and I. She took great care of my wife and advocated for her at every step of her journey, all while also providing a reassuring presence for me and guiding me to be my wife’s partner in the birthing process.
Finally, she provided excellent advice in the post-partum phase, teaching me a few handy tricks on how to feed, burp and hold my baby.
In conclusion, I am grateful to Jen for all her help and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a doula who is experienced, supportive, strong and fun to work with. We were very lucky to have her with us in such a significant time of our life and look forward to staying in touch with her.
