Testimonial for Lori Sawatsky

Having Lori by your side isn't just a "breathing coach." She's your advocate, your teammate your anchor, and lifeboat through the whole process. Lori establishes who you (and your partner) are in her initial visits and meets you exactly where you are in life whether you are a first time mom, or experienced. No judgement on any of your values.
She will offer gentle suggestions from her 10+ years of experience, but ultimately she's there to support you, and what's important to you. Lori sees the big picture, but thinks of the little things that make all the difference. She made sure my first meal after birth wasn't 'hospital food.' She brought me food that was nutritious and sustaining. Trust me, food never tasted so good as that first meal at 1am. She's there to support you, but if applicable also you partner.
Upon coming home she is there with clean hands and rolled up sleeves to help you in those first initial days and weeks.
She helped me bathe my newborn for the first time, when I physically couldn't (due to emergency c section) and honestly was a little terrified to.
She would arrive weekly and relieve me so I could walk my dogs, get some fresh air, go to the store or go for a drive. Each time she brought me nutritious homemade meals, baked goods, or gifts. She always went above and beyond.
We communicated mainly via text right from the beginning which I appreciated as I was able to ask her questions randomly as I thought of them, and then also texted her in the night when my labour started, and subsequently after when I was at home for well being check ins.
Her list of included services is extensive, and at the end of your time together she provides you with a "birth story" summarizing the birth of your little one as a keepsake. I deeply appreciated mine as some moments ended up being a blur. Hiring Lori as my Doula was worth every dollar and I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone.
