Our clients love having personalized, one-to-one support during their pregnancy, birth, and first year of postpartum life because it helps them feel confident, prepared, and informed. Check out what people are saying about their experiences with Harbour City Doulas!

“[My doula was] Andrea and it was a wonderful experience. Having someone there to ground you, retrieve things, and who knows how you want birth to play out is amazing. Partners can be good support but I found having someone emotionally outside that intense bubble was a major help. I had a faster birth, and Andrea was a pillar of strength when I thought I couldn’t make it through another contraction. If I ever have another baby I would definitely invite her back into my birth space.”

“I love this team! They are incredibly supportive and kind, and a great resource. I had such a fantastic birth experience with them, thanks to all the knowledge, care, and comfort they bring to the table. I definitely recommend this group with the highest accolades!”

“Harbour City Doulas came to my rescue when I had left my doula hiring to the last minute. They were flexible with my needs and provided excellent labour support through the whole hospital stay (over 24 hours). I believe every labouring woman deserves to have a birth doula on their team, and I have only good things to say about my experience with them. “

“From the moment we met Andrea we knew she would be the perfect fit for us. Her confidence, knowledge, and encouragement was exactly what we needed leading up to labour and delivery! I couldn’t imagine having gone through it without her. Her support has become a huge part of our baby’s birth story, and for that we are so grateful. For anyone looking for an empowered birth- I highly recommend Andrea and Harbour City Doulas!”

“Our doulas were so responsive, warm, and knowledgeable. They made us feel very cared for. We appreciated the focus on the family unit with support for both parents. It was amazing to have the text message support in addition to the home visits. Having doula support at the birth allowed us to have the birth we envisioned- we felt so empowered and taken care of. Our doula helped carry the weight, brighten the room, take care of details that would otherwise fall by the wayside in the tunnel vision of labour. Doulas are medicine!”

“I ended up having a 52 hour labour that ended in a successful vaginal delivery, and I 100% know it was partly because of the support I had from Riannon throughout the process. She was in contact with us during our early labour stages and helped us figure out when to get to the hospital. She not only supported me and my wishes but she also empowered my boyfriend during the process. We were so thankful to have her there. She was a fantastic cheerleader but also an amazing unbiased helping hand to keep us calm and let us know everything was normal and okay throughout such a scary process!”

When the suggestion of a doula came up initially, I wasn’t sure it was for us. I was wrong. Andrea’s support during my pregnancy, and most importantly in the delivery room was crucial! As first time parents, we had no idea what to expect during the labour process – and birth is no picnic. I speak for both myself and my husband when I say Andrea was one of the best decisions we made! Her emotional support & calm nature was amazing while I was in labour, and following the birth of our daughter, her knowledge was beyond helpful and she was there if we needed anything, had questions or just wanted an extra ear! Thank you Harbour City Doulas!”
