With the added incentive of birth photography we were able to capture the most important moments of our sons birth to share them with our loved ones. I would absolutely recommend Norwest Doula services to any expecting mother to make it a memorable and joyful occasion.

Dear Trish,

After two weeks of having our little monkey Zion in our lives, a few sleepless nights and constant visitors, Israel and I finally have the chance to say “thank you”. My pregnancy was the most challenging experience of my life so far. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was sure I wanted a doula to support us first timers every step of the way. From our first visit you explained clearly what a doula was and how you would support us with what ever birth plan we were comfortable with.

My fear of the unknown faded with every visit or conversation we had and I can honestly say that I don’t think I could’ve remained so calm without your extensive knowledge and support. Even when we eventually had to change hospitals and switch our plan to a Caesarean in the last few weeks you were hugely supportive and calm. You carried this support through to the delivery date and were there for us as soon as Zion was born.

With the added incentive of birth photography we were able to capture the most important moments of our sons birth to share them with our loved ones. I would absolutely recommend Norwest Doula services to any expecting mother to make it a memorable and joyful occasion.

Regards,
Manon

The meetings prior to giving birth gave me the understanding of what was to come as well as the knowledge and confidence I needed to try for a VBAC. When it came to the actual birth, Trish was there to hold my hand, offer advice, give me support and take photos of the magical birth.

I really wanted to hire a doula for the birth of my third child because I wanted to experience a natural birth. My first birth experience was premature twins born via c-section. It was a traumatic birth and certainly not what I had envisioned. It was really important to feel in control this time around and to do that I needed to be equipped with knowledge. Trish is certainly very knowledgeable in many types of births, having experienced them herself. From the first meeting, I could see that Trish was approachable and friendly but also a straight shooter. Exactly what I was after!

The meetings prior to giving birth gave me the understanding of what was to come as well as the knowledge and confidence I needed to try for a VBAC. (Especially because VBACs come with many rules and restrictions). When it came to the actual birth, Trish was there to hold my hand, offer advice, give me support and take photos of the magical birth. But it didn't stop there. Trish stayed with us for many hours after the birth to ensure I was properly cared for by the hospital staff. She was in close contact with me over my hospital stay to make sure I was doing well.

I also purchased the newborn package so Trish could visit us and help out once I was home with my three young children. It was great to have someone on hand to listen to my concerns, ease my worries and hold my baby so I could shower! She gave me some breastfeeding tips and pointed me in the right direction when we discovered my son had a tongue tie that needed correcting. Trish was always available for a chat and she was always genuinely warm and friendly.
I feel like the birth of my son was highly successful and healing. A big reason for this was Trish. I would recommend a doula to anyone who is wanting to have more control over the birth of their baby.

Trish was fantastic! Without her I would not have even dared to attempt a VBAC let alone achieve one.

Trish was fantastic! Without her I would not have even dared to attempt a VBAC let alone achieve one.
During the antenatal visits at my home Trish gave me complete confidence to trust in my body and my ability to birth naturally.
On the day my labour started she came home in the early hours of the cold morning and was fully beside me and hubby and did everything to support me to achieve my VBAC.

So thankful to you Trish
