My husband and I had the privilege of having Sandy with us during our labour and delivery. Her knowledge, understanding, and advice were greatly appreciated. She constantly had different positions and techniques to try while in labour. She was well prepared with snacks, drinks and music. Her skills in Massage Therapy were awesome and well used! My husband swears she was there for him! He really appreciated Sandy reminding him to also drink water, being with me so he could use the washroom, and guide him in ways to help me. Sandy took pictures and recorded the delivery as well as noted down different stages of the whole process. We loved her help!

Sandy is an excellent doula. She was extremely calm and patient with me during my long labour. The massage techniques she used were invaluable to me in getting through my labour with as few interventions as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate using her again if I had another baby and have recommended her to friends.

Working with Sandy, both leading up to my son’s birth as well as during labour, was great. She was very knowledgable and was able to answer any questions my husband and I had (which was a lot as first time parents). Sandy also lent me books and an exercise ball in order to prep for the birth and worked with my husband and I to figure out our birth preferences. During labour, Sandy’s massage skills were much appreciated. She knew exactly the right places to apply pressure to help ease my contractions, and when my baby got stuck in my pelvis, she was able to help wiggle him into the right position in order to avoid other interventions. She was a great support for my husband as well, ensuring him that everything I was going through was normal. I would recommend Sandy to anyone who is looking for a doula, and I fully believe that having such a great support system helped me get through my labour and delivery without any major complications.

I have been fortunate enough to have the pleasure as having Sandy be my doula for both of my births. I can say with full satisfaction that she allowed me to have the birth experience that I had envisioned. She was extremely open and helpful from the first meeting until after her post partum visit. Along the way she was full of useful information and always keeping in mind my wishes for my births. During the labours she was extremely caring with me and also great at initiating conversation ether about what is about to happen or otherwise. She was great at keeping me calm and collected so that I could focus on the task at hand while at the same time allowing the staff to do their job as well. Anyone would be extremely fortunate to have Sandy on their birthing team. My doctor had even made a note in my file after my first delivery that Sandy was an excellent doula.

Sandy was my doula for my first pregnancy. I would have been lost without her. She was incredibly informative, and made me feel at ease when fear and worries took over. I also had a hard time finding a doctor I liked. She made suggestions and gave advice which in the end, created my beautiful birth story with my daughter in the exact environment, with the exact care providers I was looking for. I’ve never felt more taken care of in my life between her and my husband. I also loved the pictures she took of us which I will treasure forever. Thank you so much Sandy!
