I have the best clients in the world and I love what I do because they are so amazing. Below is our most recent client testimonial. What a treat to receive an email with such loving and kind words!
We had an absolutely amazing experience with Marlo as our doula. When we first chatted with her, we weren't really too sure of the role that a doula plays. We knew we didn't want someone who would take over my husband's role in our baby's birth or make him feel inadequate in any way, but as Marlo explained to us "You guys know each other, and I know what to expect in the birthing process" which totally made sense and helped us clearly see how the three of us could work together as a team.
Marlo really helped Nick and I feel at ease and remain very calm throughout my whole labour. She was unbelievably reassuring and supportive from the moment she arrived at the house in the middle of the night. She helped me work through the contractions by practicing my deep breathing techniques and instinctively seemed to know when I needed a rest, to change positions, to have some food or to just have a good old scream and let it all out! I absolutely know that without her we would have gone to the hospital much sooner and undoubtedly had a longer labour.
In the delivery room she was incredibly supportive and worked really well with our midwife Kate who had recommended her to us in the first place and our nurse Angela. I vividly remember looking round at them and my husband and thinking that they made a great team and it was exactly who I wanted present at the birth.
I wholeheartedly recommend having Marlo as your doula!
