Being a first time mother, I wanted to have as much support as possible. I was always fearful of childbirth so I decided to educate myself and take some courses online. My sister recommended Lifetime of Love Doula Services to me and I am so grateful that she did!
I completed the HypnoBirthing series and Breastfeeding courses with Carol Anne and SJ, and they took all my fear away! The relaxation, breathing techniques were all practised during my long labour. Amanda was by my side through it all – putting pressure on my lower back, working as a team with my husband, he could catch a break or grab us all food – she was there for me holding my hand during each contraction.
The postpartum after care was also extremely helpful, Carol Anne drove to my home late at night to help me with breastfeeding when I was struggling with the latch and she helped me position the baby better. We have it down pat now! Amanda watched my little boy while I had a nap, she helped me bathe the baby for the first time. All these things were all new to me and I wouldn’t have the confidence I do now without all of their help.
We really cannot say enough good things about these ladies, having a doula at your delivery is something you will NOT regret. Thank you so much SJ, Amanda and Carol Anne!
