Genuine Care For Our Family

The Whatadoula team was a wonderful support during the exciting (and honestly sometimes stressful) journey into new parenthood. Dani and Cathy immediately felt like friends that we could open up and ask questions to. They comforted me when I was scared about childbirth and becoming a parent and helped arm me with knowledge and confidence. At first we were not sure if we wanted a doula, but I am so glad we decided to work with Whatadoula! It was not just helpful for me as the mother, but for my husband who was nervous about the birthing process. The doulas supported us together as a couple, in no way taking over his role as the father. I was hoping for a natural childbirth and I do believe that having the doula with us during the process helped make this possible. I think the nurses at the hospital even appreciated having our doula there. Even after our daughter's birth, the doulas were very helpful with breastfeeding and bottle feeding issues. We feel they were genuinely interested in and cared about our family, beyond the birthing process. The Whatadoula ladies were so great I hope to keep in touch with them and will always remember their support during this life changing event!
