Testimonials

I and my husband consider ourselves very lucky to have had Courtney as our doula! You will not regret it! — Laura

We hired Courtney less than 48 hours before going into labour and it was the best decision ever! I was so determined to have a VBAC, and as my due date came and went I was freaking out a bit (okay, a lot) about the possibility of needing another c-section. Courtney rushed over to our place to meet us the same day we contacted her, and as soon as she left I instantly felt so much better – way calmer and more prepared. She had so many tips for me on ways to go into labour and also for pain management during labour. It really helped put my mind at ease having her by my side. In the end, I was able to have my VBAC and I’m not sure I could have done it without Courtney. I can’t recommend her enough! — Kaitlyn
