Kind Words From Some Wonderful Clients

My wife and I were lucky enough to meet Ellen, who we were introduced to by Samantha and we felt instantly comfortable with them.

We found the way Samantha and Ellen worked together to be very supportive and reassuring, both kept in contact contact throughout the later stages of our pregnancy and labor. Their personalities compliment each other perfectly.

Their knowledge of evidence base and experience helped us as a family to make informed decisions and they supported us in the choices we made.

Ellen was a saviour to have in the birth suite and her expertise was invaluable before during and after the birth of our beautiful son which did not go exactly to plan.

We highly recommend working with this caring couple of expert doulas and we are grateful we came across them when we did.

Firstly, if you are pregnant get a doula. Secondly, if you’re interested in Sam better get in quick - after my husband has finished raving about her she’ll be in high demand! I appreciated her evidence based approach and her service is above and beyond what I expected... including foot massages and yummy lactation cookies ;) She helped me to achieve the natural birth that I really wanted, without any intervention. Because I engaged her quite early we were able to catch up once a month during my pregnancy - so I felt more familiar and comfortable with Sam by the time I started labour. She’s supportive but not intrusive- and definitely made me feel special and valued. I highly recommend Sam.

Samantha was indispensable at my birth as a first time mother, providing my partner & I with constant support through a long labor. She helped me feel confident & empowered enough to get through it with minimal intervention. Her immense wealth of knowledge & experience make her great at giving you unbiased information upon which to base your decisions. Fantastic, friendly support before, during & after labor. Thank you, Samantha! ❤️
— Yasmina & Pete - birth clients
Samantha was wonderful to have supporting us at the birth of our baby girl. We hoped for a natural birth, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we ended up with just about every intervention possible (except for an emergency c-section). Having Samantha there to guide us, reassure us, and support us through every step of our journey was invaluable. I know our birth journey would have been so much more stressful and scary had she not been there. If we decide to have another baby, we’ll definitely want Samantha to support us as our doula again. Thanks so much x

Much welcomed postnatal support for me and my family after the birth of my 3rd child. Sam is flexible, practical and caring. I am so grateful for the dinners, cleaning, shopping, naps and uninterrupted showers made possible by Sam in those early weeks.
— Katie - postnatal client
Samantha is fantastic! She is incredibly kind and has a very calming presence. I was a bit later in my pregnancy to book with her, but in the time we were together she was incredibly helpful in giving me the birth I wanted. We developed a great relationship and it was easy to trust her guidance and advice to improve my chances of having a natural home birth. Samantha is a wealth of knowledge! During my labour, Samantha was at my side and provided me with lots of support, care and encouragement. If we decide to have a third child, I would definitely want Samantha as my doula again. I highly, highly recommend her!

We hired Sam in the last few weeks of my pregnancy and she made us feel comfortable straight away. She made sure to keep in contact with us and get as many visits in as possible before the birth so we were all on the same page. She is the most caring, warm and supportive doula and we would highly recommend her <3 Thanks, Sam.

Sam is such an incredible doula! She was a constant source of wisdom, comfort, support and inspiration. I can’t imagine having gone through such a life changing experience with any one else.

Right from the start, she knew exactly what to say and do to guide and encourage me at home during the early stages of labour. She gave my husband the confidence to be my main support person and knew when to step in to lend a hand. When we transitioned to the hospital, she had just the right style with the medical team and made sure we understood what was being suggested and what our options were.

Sam is generous, patient, warm and seriously knowledgeable about everything related to birth and babies. I cant recommend her highly enough!
— Sonja & Leon - birth clients
Sam was our doula and I cannot say enough good things about how fantastic she was. From the pre natal visits, birth/labour to post natal, it was one of the best decisions we made. The labour did not go to plan and Sam was the most amazing mix of support and knowledge. She blended in very well with the medical team and brought her own calming energy to the mix for both myself and my husband. Also, the way she braced my hips during every contraction was a magic relief!! I recommend Sam very highly.
— Emma & Matt - birth & postnatal clients
Sam is an absolutely great doula! She was there for us every step of the way, from prenatal preparations, day of birth and postnatal. She always kept in touch with us in between our meetups. My husband and I really felt supported and cared for. The comfort techniques and tips she provided helped us immensely. I don’t think I would’ve survived an induced labour without her. More than anything else, I can’t thank Sam enough for reminding me of my strength as I enter the doors of motherhood 💜💜💜
