It was so amazingly helpful to have Heather as our doula! Heather really helped us prepare for labour, especially mentally, asking important questions and listening to our thoughts and fears and how we hoped it would go. She made me feel empowered that I had choices. At the hospital, it was invaluable to have someone who knew what was going on, who guided us when we needed it but also knew when to step back and let us do our thing. Overall, she was so helpful, respectful and calming to be around! Can’t imagine our birth experience without her.
Jenny accompanied me at the hospital for the birth of my first child. She was calm and reassuring. Exactly what I needed. We met twice before and texted a lot after my baby’s birth. I am quite the anxious person and needed exactly this type of person to help me through this MAJOR life event. THANK YOU ! Thank you as well to heather for the postpartum care (and the muffins :p) You are so understanding and sweet. Would recommend to any friend and will surely book them again if I have the joy of having a second baby !
Thank you Two Doulas! You are both amazing. The journey through pregnancy and the first few months of life with our new little one was a lot more relaxed and informed due to your support. I’m so happy we decided to have you be part of the trip!
I don’t know how to describe how wonderful our experience was with Jenny and Lee. Having them as doulas was amazing. They supported us without judgment, helped us navigate overwhelming information so we could make the best decisions for our little family, and had helpful answers and advice to our endless questions before, during, and after baby. They are delightful, smart, tough, gentle, loving women who you want by your side during the tender AND crazy moments. We can’t imagine what we would have done without them!
Thank you so much Jenny & Lee – navigating birth and then a newborn was quite daunting, but you were both here on hand for the many questions and queries that arose! (Even the in-the-moment-cray-cray ones!) It was wonderful having two women who have made it through more than once (!), who were able to share their experiences and advice, but who gave us space to let us take our own direction.
When I found out I was pregnant, I started researching doulas and after looking at a number of different profiles, I just couldn’t read any more after reading about Two Doulas. So we made a date to meet up and talk about what we were looking for. During our first meeting we had so much fun that I was absolutely confident that we had found the right team. Jenny and Lee are a great pair and they complement each other so very well. My husband and I wanted to learn as much as we could about the whole process so we signed up for their prenatal classes as well as their pre- and post-natal visits (All The Things). We really appreciated their approach to teaching and the experience that they have in being able to answer our questions. Whenever I had and still have questions, they are always there for me with helpful advice and answers. When I went into labour, Jenny was there for us at every step of the way and was always encouraging me to ask questions and to help us feel confident that we were doing things that felt right for us. With her help and encouragement we were able to have a super positive experience and natural labour. When we came home with our beautiful baby we felt confident and reassured that we had all the support we needed to look after this tiny new person in our lives. It was so comforting for me knowing that Jenny or Lee was coming to visit. Even after our last meeting they are so encouraging to keep in touch or ask them questions. They have been such an important part of this experience for us. I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way.
Lee is amazing. The guidance and support we received throughout the pregnancy, during my crazy and intense labour, and postpartum was invaluable. She’s always available for questions and full of so much great advice. You truly feel cared for. We could not have done it without her!
Working with Jenny and Lee was truly an outstanding experience, especially as first time parents. Both Jenny and Lee have a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum recovery. Everything about being pregnant and recovering from childbirth felt less scary because they really made us feel like they had our backs. I knew I could text or call either one of them regardless of the time of day and would receive a tremendous amount of support with zero judgement. Throughout my labor and delivery, Jenny was amazing to both myself and my fiancé and my postpartum recovery was a breeze thanks to Lee! My fiancé and I definitely recommend Two Doulas to anyone who is considering having this added support. You will not regret it! Thanks Jenny and Lee! We will see you with our second baby!
Jenny and Lee are both amazing! This was our first birth and having them available, both in person and over text and phone, was a huge support for me and my partner. They are both incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, which made us feel well-informed and confident in our new adventure as parents. They both work in a holistic way that helped me overcome some of my prenatal and postpartum anxiety, and feel supported emotionally, mentally, and physically. They work in a non-judgmental way, which made us feel comfortable to make our own choices throughout the process, including how we chose to labour as well as feed and sleep after the birth. I highly recommend their services for anyone who feels they need an advocate during the birth and support before and after.
I’m so grateful to have been introduced to the “Two Doulas.” Although I initially started with prenatal classes, it was not long before I had signed up for their full service package.
Jenny’s customized prenatal classes included everything I needed to know to ensure a confident third trimester and birth. Her warmth, knowledge and insight made it clear that her presence at my son’s birth was an essential part of the experience. Jenny provided us with the comfort we needed in what turned out to be a challenging birth.
Shortly after my son was born, it was clear that I needed more help than originally anticipated and so instead of just a few sessions with Lee, I had the absolute pleasure of 14 full days of care over a 4 week period. During that time, Lee patiently taught me many things a first-time mom needed to know while ensuring I was cared for, rested and relaxed.
Jenny and Lee came into our home and helped our family and for that, I am very thankful.
