Toronto Doula Testimonials
Susee's visits felt like visits from a friend with the added bonus of supporting me in the early postpartum days and helping me feel confident with my baby - so important as a new mom. ~ Amanda
Adrienne was amazing. She was like an athletic coach for birthing! She kept me focused and was a constant presence by my side when things are calm and when things started to get intense. She took on any feelings I was having and gently reminded my of my goals all while making sure I was as comfortable as possible. I love that she tried to include my husband as much as possible. Her yoga knowledge really strengthens her ability to guide your breath and vocalizing to manage contraction. She is full of knowledge on many aspects of pregnancy and birth and if she doesn't know something she will use her many resources and contacts to try and figure it out for you as soon as possible. ~Margaret
Having a doula for support before/during/after the birth was worth every penny. A huge part of my positive birth experience can be attributed to April’s services, as she prepared us so thoroughly that we were able to go into labour and delivery without fear, and she could anticipate the best way to support both my partner and I during the birth itself. I could relax during the experience knowing that we had a knowledgable person on our team, and that my husband could tag out with someone I could trust as need be. I would recommend hiring a doula 1000 times over. ~ Whittney
Dina was instrumental in making me as comfortable as possible in what ended up being a long and extremely intense labour, without any pain relief medications. I can't imagine how I could have managed without her support, and guidance throughout the labour. She is really well experienced and offered me excellent suggestions and guidance in preparation for labour/delivery, during labour and postpartum. She really takes the time to understand you and your needs and is there as a voice and resource to help through one of the most stressful and intense moments of your life! I couldn't speak highly enough of her. ~ Melita
It was truly amazing having Danielle's support and encouragement throughout my pregnancy and during birth. She is super knowledgeable and her calmness and confidence gave me the strength that I needed for my labour. Now I have a beautiful labour story to tell people- hopefully helping others see that it doesn't have to be a scary experience ~ Caitl
One thing Taylor said that helped immensely throughout my pregnancy as I prepared for birth and relieved any anxiety I had about it was that birth isn't something that will happen to me, it's something I am and it just is. It made me feel that I was meant to do this. Also I was a little worried a doula could come off as a little preachy and that my husband wouldn't do well with that. Taylor was always open and never gave either of us that impression. The fact that she won over my overly skeptical husband speaks volumes and he has been recommending her to all of his pregnant colleagues in the finance industry. ~Ioanna
I really enjoyed my experience with marj both as a doula and as a yoga teacher. She was so helpful with all of the physical needs around the baby and the house, and also allowed me to spend time with my older daughter by caring for the baby. She provided emotional support, as well as educational support and ideas for how to cope with the addition to our family, nursing, doing research on daycares for my daughter, I felt that I recovered much quicker and felt more well balanced with this birth as opposed to the birth of my first daughter because I had more support in the postpartum period. ~ Amy Makali
"We found Marj to be very calm and empathetic. She gave us actionable advice that helped me cope with the stress of going through labour and delivery for the first time. Looking back, I can't imagine what it would have been like to go through that experience without her support. I would highly recommend Marj as a birth doula and for postpartum support." ~ Merline
When my husband and I first decided we wanted to hire a doula we didn’t really know what to expect but we did know the kind of support we wanted to have during the birth of our son. Adrienne is an amazing support tool not only pre-birth but during labour and post birth. During my labour she always had my best interest at heart and the entire time she was in total control of my needs and well-being. The best thing we did for ourselves was hiring Adrienne, she really made a difference in our experience ~ Amy
Amy was an amazing Doula. She was extremely supportive and calming presence to both my husband and I. We are not the type of people that would ask for help when dealing with stressful situation, however Amy knew exactly what we needed and was also one step ahead offering support. Amy was always available when we had any questions, and after we were discharged from the hospital and I was having issues latching, she came over instantaneously offering any help and support. And she makes one helluva cookie!!!~ Jessica
I have to admit that my husband Pascal was doubtful about having a Doula. But when we first met Megan, he completely changed his mind and agreed that we found the perfect person to help us through this adventure. It was important for me to have a natural delivery and without Megan I have to say that I would have not been able to do it. Not only did she help me cope with the pain but she also helped Pascal be a great support during those tough hours. She allowed us to have the delivery we wanted in communicating with the hospital staff. Megan is a dedicated person that we could trust from day one. She was available at any time, very competent and knowledgeable. She knows how to reassure and have an answer to each question we could have on pregnancy, labor and after delivery. Thee is no words to express how grateful we are to have her as our Doula. I would recommend her to anyone. ~ Anais
Amy is an incredibly intuitive, knowledgeable, and loving doula! Having her beside me as I went through the journey that is giving birth made the experience of having my last baby an unforgettable memory. Throughout the process, she offered a series of gentle suggestions to help me ease the pain of labor. Her back massages were everything! It was exactly what I needed as I transitioned into v.painful back labor, she also encouraged me to take a bath, as well as go through contractions on exercise balls. She was so tactful and observant, she knew exactly when to step back and would intuitively step back in to support me. She respected and made space for my partner's presence as well, and actually a few moments after the baby's birth she asked if she could take a picture and captured such a beautiful moment with my partner and our brand new baby! Amy was truly an angel in disguise for me during my birth process. Her energy is so positive and loving in a really grounded and balanced way, she made a huge difference in my birth experience, and I'm truly happy and thankful that she was my doula.
