Testimonials

"We can’t imagine having gone through the birth of our daughter Elsie without Darcie. I would strongly recommend having a doula to anyone, and Darcie exemplifies the support that a doula can provide. She helped us prepare for birth and supported us throughout several hours of back labor (overnight) as well as several hours of transition. Darcie was kind, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about birth and the various options available to us. My husband also felt more comfortable and capable because she was with us. I also got the herbal 'add-on' package, which was a nice treat for mama and baby!"

"As first time parents we wanted a doula who could be our support system and help us carry out our desired natural birth plan. Darcie did this and so much more! Darcie truly understood the vision of what my husband and I wanted to gain from this experience and what efforts were needed by her to achieve it. Not only did she give us an amazing recommendation for birthing classes, pre and postpartum herbal remedies, she helped us understand the choices we had as parents, the options that would be presented to us, and allowed us  to work towards our birth plan the way we felt most comfortable. Through labor and delivery Darcie was the light to keep us persevering. Her wealth of knowledge, positive reassurance, and caring soul made what we thought would be a scary, chaotic, intense time, the most beautiful experience to look back on. Having Darcie be a part of such a life changing event was the best decision we could have made. Before, during and after delivery she was our advocate and provided an endless amount of support. If and when my husband and I choose to have another child we'll be so blessed to have Darcie by our side again. Her passion for her profession is undeniable!"

"I knew I wanted the support of a doula with my first pregnancy. But the process of finding someone that I didn't even know to be a part of such a huge life event was intimidating. I realized Darcie was the right choice when I found myself feeling comfortable enough to voice those concerns and so much more. Darcie was amazing at the birth of our son. She provided us with unwavering support, all while giving my husband and I the space we needed to experience the intimate joy of bringing our son into the world. I will always remember Darcie's calming presence; her reassuring voice and her eyes always meeting mine when I needed her. Darcie's support through her products for mamas and babies is unmatched. Two years after the birth of my son, I still use her products as well as gift them to other mamas. Darcie as our doula was a huge part of making our birth experience so wonderful and empowering. We highly recommend her! "

"I wasn’t sure what having a doula for my partner’s birthing process meant and whether it would feel comfortable to have a 'stranger' involved in such an important and intimate event. But I was open to learning, and after hearing Darcie speak at the Meet the Doulas event, I had an immediate 'this is the one' feeling. Darcie brings a light humor and a look-you-in-the-eye presence that instantly makes you feel comfortable and supported. Her knowledge combined with her skillful communication style relieved a lot of my pre-baby anxieties and fears. During the birthing process, it felt like having a best friend there who knew 'all the things' but didn’t bring all the other baggage along. From the little things like knowing where to get some juice or a sandwich or more 'chux pads', to the big things like offering suggestions for positions and a calming, supportive presence during a very scary post-birth situation, Darcie was exactly what this 'second mom' needed and wanted."

"My partner and I have been supported by Darcie from pregnancy, through birth, and now into the 5th month of our baby’s life. Her intuitive presence has been deeply appreciated in each transition and through each chapter. Having had my own hospital/health care trauma to work through, feeling safe and supported in advocating for myself felt paramount and Darcie was there, gently, every step of the way. She and my partner worked as a team during our laboring process and he felt as equally supported in his experience as I did. In the early days of our child’s life, Darcie was a quiet yet steadfast presence seemingly knowing what support we needed (holding baby, doing dishes, picking up food to nourish us, etc.) sometimes when we weren’t even yet sure. Now as our baby has grown, Darcie has continued to support us while also encouraging the emergence of personality and development in this amazing new human. She has been an integral part of this rich experience and we hope to continue to stay connected."
