Calgary Doula Review: Lucas' Birth

I am so excited to add this beautiful review from a lovely couple I worked with recently in Calgary. They are so strong in their love for each other and the love of their children. Thank you Nikita for allowing me to share!

Beautiful Words from Lucas' Mom (Calgary, AB)

Leading up to the birth of my second son I felt I needed someone other than my husband during labour and delivery. I needed someone with a calm strength, a quiet confidence. Someone to help bring clarity to what the doctors were saying while I was focusing on contractions, and most importantly, someone my husband (well ok me too) could draw strength from. We met with Laurie and there was instant excitement for both my husband and I when she brought her quiet but palpable passion for natural labour and birth.

At my last doctor appointment I was 42+2 and they sent me straight to the hospital to have my water broken and induction. Laurie played cards with hubby and I through early "not actual labour" and when the doctors came in to try to push things along faster I looked to her reassurance that I had a choice. She took precious pictures of Lucas' first moments and offered support and an ear to hear my postpartum emotions.

We were not disappointed with our choice to have Laurie with us at the birth of our little blessing Lucas.
