Our doulas were my dream team for the birth of my baby girl. They showed such care and support in the lead up to the birth – they made efforts to understand and connect with my husband and I so we could establish a trusting relationship. I felt totally empowered by them and loved receiving the many supportive whatsapp messages. The actual birth was far from what I planned/ hoped for. It was a long, drawn-out induction in the hospital– a far cry from the hypno/water/home birth I wanted! Despite that, our doula knew exactly what to do in the room. I was so grateful for her presence. She was able to give my husband a much-needed brake and always seemed to be right there with whatever I needed – a cold flannel, water, a hug! She clutched my birthplan like it was a holy scripture and made sure my wishes were respected at every turn. She helped me reclaim my birth experience.
Both doulas gave us further support by visiting us after the birth to help us process the experience. Our doula is officially Queen of empowering whatsapp messages! I also hired both ladies for extra post-natal care. From helping me wash the baby, to ironing and cleaning – everything they did was incredibly helpful and meant that I could rest and bond with my darling daughter.
I am so happy to have had such incredible women support me during this lifechanging event. I will most certainly hire them again for future babies. I am forever grateful to you both.

My Doula is a gift to any new mum – she was like a fairy godmother to us and just made that first month at home far more enjoyable to me. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

Our Doulas were a calming influence and great support throughout the pregnancy, during labour and postnatal. They offered fantastic support and evidence-based resources for us to consider and make informed decisions.
Having them present during birth meant we could focus on the birth and felt looked after as they knew our preferences. We were supported immediately post-birth until we were totally comfortable and settled as a new family of 3!

She is extremely intuitive, She is so friendly, good-humoured and emotionally intelligent. I am so lucky to have found such a good Doula and was sad when I no longer needed her.

As first time parents we count ourselves lucky to have had such a wonderful birth Doula. She is a very warm and caring person by nature. Despite this gentleness there is nothing she could not handle to provide the birth we hope for. Having a doula was the best investment by far
