Bri's Reviews & Testimonials
We would highly recommend Bri as a doula. She is a lovely, kind and grounded person who is well trained in her field. She went over and above the call of duty for us, especially in the postpartum period when our needs were more than anticipated. She was hardworking, responsive, intuitive and holistic in her care, and knew how to find the balance between being there for us and also giving us the space we needed during such a sensitive time. She was very thorough and incredibly supportive. Anybody would be lucky to have her as a doula.
Bri was an integral person on our birthing team. She has a beautiful mothering energy, which was wholeheartedly welcomed during such an intense experience. Bri is warm, supportive, understanding and kind. During the birth, Bri was present but didn't intrude. She allowed my partner and I to share the intimacy and magic of birth together. But she was also present and there to take my hand when my husband needed a rest. She offered gentle and effective help and guidance at exactly the right moments. Thank you Bri! You helped make our birth experience special!
Bri is a calming presence when it is needed most, her ability to support my family during our postpartum with our second child was a blessing. She's a great doula and also a fantastic listener. She has a true passion for the work that she does which shows through her care. Entering Parenthood can be a difficult and testing transition but with Bri's support I felt confident in transitioning into my role as a mama of two under two!
I was lucky enough to have trained beside Bri in Doula school, so I got to see her develop and grow her skills as a doula. From the beginning, I knew she was magic with a nurturing and gentle soul. So from the moment I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to have her there for my birth. Throughout my pregnancy, Bri was so present and available to talk with me, check in and make sure that everything was going well. Because we were friends, and trained together, it could have been easy to just shrug off these check-ins, since I was trained too, and “knew what to expect”. But, that didn’t stop Bri from maintaining her professionalism, and really treating me the same way she would treat any client. She held space for me to share my experience through pregnancy, and made sure that my birth plan and team was ready for the big day. The day of my birth was INTENSE. My labour started hot out of the gate, and I was so glad to have Bri there early to not only provide support for myself, but for my husband as well. It was so good to have someone to advocate for me early on as I was not able to communicate as much as I thought I would be able to. Bri has an incredible steadfast energy, she knows how to meet you where you are at, and provides that grounding presence that is so needed during birth. I wasn’t able to handle any touch during contractions, but Bri guided me with her soothing voice, used the rebozo to keep my hips loose, reminded me to breathe, fed me when she could to keep up my energy, as well as gave my husband support and a break whenever he needed. After the birth of my daughter, Bri came to check in on me at the hospital, so we could debrief and really talk about the whole experience, and she brought me the most fitting gift of chocolate, labeled “In case of emergency”. It was really a lifesaver having that little bit of chocolate at 3 in the morning when I really needed it, those first few nights after my baby arrived. I can’t recommend this magical genuine woman enough. Do yourself a favour and hire Bri as your doula. The investment to your birth experience, and the beginning of life with a new family is so incredibly valuable. It takes a village, so fill your village with the people who can truly support you. Bri is one of those people. She will guide you, love on you and do whatever she can to make sure you feel safe, educated and empowered to make that leap into parenthood. With love from our hearts.
