Doula love notes

Love note from Maryanne Hovde

I started pregnancy yoga when I was 16 weeks pregnant and went every week until a few days before birth. The classes were great. It was like a little bit of 'me time' in a busy week, and Trudy is lovely and makes everyone feel special and welcome.
It felt great to stretch and build strength in a safe way, and I could always tell Trudy what my aches and pains were that week and she'd suggest stretches and moves I could do at home.
We also did breathing exercises and moves that were useful during labour. In the end I had a 4 hour natural labour, and I think pregnancy yoga played a big part in having a quick and "easy" birth.Maryanne Hovde

Doula Birth Support for Debbie, Brent and baby Colby

I cannot recommend Trudy's as a doula highly enough. As a first time mum she helped me before I even went to the hospital by checking in with me, explaining different birthing options, answering any questions and even giving a relaxing foot massage.

Trudy was reassuring, calming and very encouraging during my labour to both myself and my partner. She was always there working with my partner to grab water and supporting me with different ways to breathe and positions to get comfortable.

After the baby was born and we were home Trudy has continued to check that we are doing well. Trudy helped to make my labour the best it could be.Debbie, Brent and baby Colby

I cannot express my appreciation and gratitude enough! I started pregnancy yoga with Trudy very early in my pregnancy journey and through her, learned of Hypnobirthing. I completed the course with Trudy and felt empowered and excited for my baby's birth from the first session. Trudy was very encouraging throughout and made the sessions very easy to follow and understand. If you're seeking a calm, beautiful birth for your baby, i cannot recommend Hypnobirthing with Trudy enough.Hannah, Todd and Baby Ari
