Bonnie was very caring, kind and attentive throughout our entire pregnancy and birthing process. She was very flexible and did everything she could to help us feel calm and prepared for the most important event of our lives. As a first birth, we had to think through many preferences and needs and Bonnie helped us think through what we needed and then supported us to meet those needs throughout our labor. She was prepared with many breathing, meditation, and massage techniques, and came prepped with different tools to help us through the process. She was very communicative and it is very easy to see that she has a great passion for what she is doing. Although just starting out, it is clear that Bonnie is continually working to add more knowledge and experience to her skillset. During the time we worked with her, Bonnie attended infant CPR, breastfeeding, and birthing classes and used her base knowledge of yoga in a very supportive manner that translated to the birth. During labor I felt very safe and secure and supported. I would recommend Bonnie to others as a kind soul and loving support.
Bonnie provided calm and support when my daughter’s birth took a turn towards the unexpected. I chose Bonnie to be my doula during my first pregnancy. I'd intended to have an assisted home birth with a registered nurse midwife. About 12 hours into my labor things had hit a stand still and I needed to be transferred to the hospital for further assessment. Bonnie stayed by my side the entire time. Her support and guidance gave me confidence and encouragement during my labor. Her strength and composure assisted me in navigating decisions and interactions during my hospital transfer. Her kindness, friendship and advice relieved me during the healing process. Bonnie is incredibly generous with her time and attention and practical with her advice. She will make a valuable addition to any birth team.
Bonnie is awesome!
I was having trouble with feeding and sleeping and after three sleepless nights we had Bonnie come and stay with my LO for the night. She immediately noticed he had a lip tie, which could be the reason of our hard time feeding. Not only did she take great care of him while we slept and recharged our batteries, but the next morning she gave us great advice regarding reflux and cranio-sacral therapy.
Just one night with Bonnie was a game changer. Highly recommend.
