Testimonial for Renée Ahmadi MA CD (DONA)

We hired Renee as our doula for the birth of our first child. Working with Renee was a pleasure throughout our whole pregnancy, birth, and post-birth. She is knowledgable, reassuring, steady, and brings her authentic self and humour to the whole experience. At our intital meet up she answered all our questions and helped us think about what was important for us. 

It was great to have access to her pre-natal yoga classes. It really helped me in preparing my body, mind, and breath, and also in getting to know Renee and feeling comfortable with her. I also attended one of her in-person pre-natal workshops - and wow, that was a great thing to do. It helped me get in touch with my breath, especially as we moved through positions and phases as practice in a calm and thoughtful way. We also had some incredibly valuable sessions at our house where Renee worked with my partner and I to talk about and practice scenarios and positions. It left me feeing excited and less anxious about what was ahead. My partner also appreciated being able to practice and talk about things before the big event.

At the actual labour and birth, Renee was an important part of our birth team. She worked seamlessly with our midwife and helped us move through it all. We had to make decisions around potential induction and when to go to the hospital, and Renee helped us understand our options and ultimately feel confident with the decisions we made. I was able to have the unmedicated, natural childbirth that I wanted. Even so, it was still nothing like I expected! Having Renee there helped me feel safe and cared for throughout it. She helped my partner feel secure that I was in good hands, while also helping him understand and take charge of his important supporting role. 

In the post-birth world, Renee checked in and debriefed with us and we all continued to feel cared for and supported. If I have another child, I would definitely want Renee in my corner again!
