Dear Sian,

My heart is brimming with gratitude and awe for your support during the birth of our baby boy. Our baby boy came early and we were not quite ready. I had no idea “what to expect” – I hadn’t read that far ahead yet! Through labour, you kept me calm and focused. You stayed with me through each contraction, urging me to capture each one with my breath. The power of that – being present with me through each one – was astounding (I had no idea it would be so vital a part of my labour).

Your diligence in remaining focused on my needs through the 32 hours of labour was amazing, as well as providing acupressure – this was also so incredibly helpful in keeping me focused and positive. And your open-mindedness and considerate reminders of my birth wishes, when it came time to consider interventions, was also much appreciated.

I will always be grateful for this role you played in our lives, and wish you all the very best with your wonderful family and blossoming career, providing this essential care of women who are making this incredible journey into motherhood.

My Husband and I were lucky enough to have Jennifae step in last minute as our doula. I had only met Jennifae 5 days before I went into labor, but it was like I knew her for a lifetime. Jennifae provided well balanced feedback for us everytime the Dr. provided us with another option and was right there holding my hand throughout the process. Jenny was well prepared with a bag of tools that included massage oil which felt heavenly in between contractions. We are very thankful to have had Jennifae, and even our nurse commented that we were lucky to have her. Jennifae loves what she does, and it shows. We will recommend her to anyone we know who is having a baby.

Upon meeting Sian for the interview, we were very impressed. She was very professional, friendly, organized, knowledgeable, and clearly in her element. Sian was always listening to us and very supportive of our values, beliefs, and decisions. She was a great unconditional loving support from that day on, until our baby was born, and after. As it happened, our babies birth was a very challenging one. Despite being pregnant herself, Sian was 100% dedicated to our’s and our son’s wellbeing. In the most challenging time of our lives, she was a pillar of strength and wisdom.

Thank you Sian for your incredible commitment to our family during this amazing journey.

We were honored to have Jennifae present for the birth of our baby girl. Jennifae provided the perfect amount of support and encouragement, and helped us to have a very positive birth experience. She was an absolute God-send and a blessing!

Sian was wonderful. She advocated for us in the midst of chaos and confusion at the hospital. In sum, our birthing experience would have been different without her. She is highly recommended!”

We met with Jennifae a few times before D-day, and she was very good at answering our random questions, and helping to keep us calm about the uncertainties of our first delivery. Jennifae helped us decide when to go to the hospital and even massaged my hips during the car ride so my husband could focus on driving. She was extremely supportive and attentive to my needs. Jennifae took pictures after our baby was born-this was wonderful as it allowed my husband and I to focus on our little girl, rather then snapping shots. Both my husband and I highly recommend Jennifae, we were blessed to have her!

No matter how much I read, what the midwives or Sian or my mom or my friends told me, nothing (seriously nothing!) could have prepared me for what active labour was actually going to be like. I don’t want to scare you, I’m just being honest. So after 15 hours of early labour, early support from Sian and a visit from our amazing midwife, active labour began at home. It was me and my husband and our pup and it was starting to feel overwhelming. My breathing was getting away from me and I was starting to feel scared, like it was too much for me to handle. Little did I know that Sian and my husband had been in constant contact since active labour began and as those overwhelming thoughts started flooding my brain, in walks Sian with all her wisdom and warmth and love. Within a few minutes she helped me get my breathing back under control and everything seemed okay again. For my husband too, it was a huge relief…having Sian there allowed him to just be there for me. He says all the stress and worry for him was gone and he could just focus on me. Both my husband and I really believe that having Sian as our doula was one of the major factors that helped us to stay at home and have a healthy, quiet, calm, and beautiful birth here.

We love you Sian xoxoxox

Jennifae was a wonderful doula. She kept me calm during a difficult time and she gave us her undivided attention. She provided us with information and options concerning different issues we were faced with. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. Her kind and caring nature was shown in all she did. She is a true angel and we were blessed to have her as our doula. I highly recommend her.

Sian was such a valued and amazing doula who brought knowledge, experience and passion prenatally, during the birth and postnatal . From the moment I met Sian, I knew she was the birth partner I was looking for because of her positive and sincere outlook, and genuine dedication . I commend her commitment, kind nature and trustworthiness. I always felt she was there for me and my family to support the birth experience I was looking for, she is like an instant friend full of love, energy and encouragement. I believe I had such a great birth experience because of her warm and caring hands!!
