"As a first-time mom, I found it extremely comforting to know that I was being supported during my labour (moreso by someone who took the time to get to know me before I arrived in the delivery room). I was interested to get a doula from the very beginning of my pregnancy. Now that I’ve experienced a pregnancy with the support of a doula, I will highly recommend to my family and friends going through a pregnancy to consider having a doula be a part of their support team. Both my husband and I were very pleased with the services provided especially the support during the labour and postpartum care. CherylAnn was thoughtful and responsive to our needs. Thank you, CherylAnn, for such a positive experience that you’ve provided!"

When I first found out I was pregnant I was encouraged to find a doula, we are so glad we did. The support we received made all the difference. They helped us with all my concerns, supported my decisions and never made my fears seem minor. I felt like I was always heard, and truly cared for. It was so important to have them with us throughout the entire process. Things happen so quickly (even if it takes hours!) there are so many emotions and an equal amount of decisions. It's nice to have someone on your side, reminding you of how you wanted things to go and/or consoling you when they had to go another way. Thanks again Brooke Rensby & CherylAnn Ali.
"Wow! Where to begin. Brooke was very supportive and always willing to help. It was very comforting knowing she was there for every contraction. She had a variety of different ideas. Her candles in the bathroom were great. (Even if it was too dark and the lights were on.) She was positive and always happy. She encouraged me to push harder, when I thought I couldn’t. My husband also loved her support, as he looked to her when he was unsure what to do. Thank-you very much for all your help!"
"She arrived at the hospital before we did was so kind and knowledgeable and helped make the experience and contractions more relaxing and tolerable. To be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure what a doula’s role was during labour but I have recommended a doula (and specifically CherylAnn!) to several people since my son was born. Overall, incredibly happy with the experience."

"I felt totally supported in my decisions. Brooke recommended walking around the house and within a few more contractions I felt it was time to go to the hospital. We arrived at 9 cm’s. It was awesome knowing we did all that work before getting there! Brooke’s only goal was to make sure I felt comfortable and to ensure I got what I wanted in my labour and delivery and I can happily say that I did!"
