“Amelie’s presence was totally invaluable. I don’t think my labour would have been so successful if she wasn’t there. She knew exactly when to get involved and when to leave us to it. Her encouragement and support was spot on. Everything about her presence was honest and perfect to create an atmosphere of trust and most importantly : no pressure, only support! She was the one person who stayed with us throughout the entire labour while midwifes changed shifts.
I am so glad I made the decision to have a doula present at my first birth and I am so lucky to have found Amelie. I know I wanted support at the birth but I hadn’t realise how important it would be having Amelie available to call any time and chat about concerns and fears in the time leading up to the birth. She was always there for me and my hubby. Now that baby Thomas is here, we are happy to count her as a friend.”
