What are clients saying about Doula support with Arielle?
I truly love my work as a Doula and Childbirth Educator, and I have been blessed in working with amazing families, and fierce women who know their worth! Here are a few of their stories, in the smallest snippet possible, because how can you contain your pregnancy, birth and postpartum days into a short little paragraph, right? I hope you enjoy reading their stories.
Arielle offered fabulous support during our prenatal, birth, and postpartum periods. I don't know if I could have done it without her! Her calm guidance and gentle words gave me strength, confidence, and the tools for a successful VBAC!
Renee, birthed 2023
I'm a first-time mom who had the most incredible, unmedicated birth experience. From the moment Arielle arrived at the hospital, she was nonstop coaching me, encouraging me, as well as helping me physically either with massages, showing me different positions, etc. My husband and I are extremely grateful for her calming presence and wisdom! I tell all my pregnant friends that a doula is SO worth it, whether you want to go unmedicated or not. Thank you so much Arielle for being a part of one of the most magical days of my life!
Amanda, birthed 2022
We were so lucky to work with Arielle as our birth doula! Throughout my pregnancy, she provided evidence-based information that allowed us to make informed decisions regarding our birth preferences. During labor, she was an amazing source of strength, calm and focus for me and my partner. Thank you Arielle!
Naitri, birthed 2022
After a traumatic birth with my second child, I knew I needed an advocate and someone to support my husband and I during our last birth. I was hoping for an unmedicated hospital VBAC and knew all the mental and physical hurdles that would challenge us. Arielle supported us so beautifully and honestly there was no way we could have achieved our perfect birth without her. Hiring Arielle was the best and most important thing we did to achieve our unmedicated VBAC!
Sabina, birthed 2021
We loved Arielle’s focus on meditation and learned many techniques and stretches. During my home birth she was an extremely valuable presence, keeping us both calm and guiding us through some rough changes to our birth plan; she is the reason we still had an extremely positive birth experience!
Tjitske, birthed 2021
Arielle was an indispensable presence during the birth of my son. She helped me remain as calm as I could be and assisted me with exercises to help with the pain since I wanted to delay getting an epidural. Prior to the birth and after, she checked in to see how I was doing and was quick to respond to any questions I had. I highly recommend hiring her as your birth doula!
Jacqueline, birthed 2021
Arielle was a game changer for us! She gave us the confidence we needed. As soon as she arrived in the delivery room, I felt more relaxed, confident and ready to be in my labor bubble. She was able to create a beautiful atmosphere in the bathroom with little lights and aromatic oils. I have no regrets! We had a beautiful experience thanks to her!
Amandine, birthed 2021
Arielle's soothing voice, phrases of encouragement, and incredible support during my unique homebirth experience were vital and I'm so grateful she was there. I could not recommend Arielle more as an invaluable doula."
Emeline, birthed 2020
Meeting Arielle has enriched my life in many positive ways. I gained so much confidence working with her. Not only did I learn a ton, but I was also provided with a bounty of resources and new techniques that worked wonders in labor."
Najet, birthed 2019
Arielle helped me experience the best non-medicated birth possible, not once, but twice! I can't imagine what going through labor with minimal interventions would have been like had she not been there. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for support to have the birth they truly want."
