“Alyssa has a way of asking the right questions for YOU to dig deep and find the answers to why you are feeling stuck, unmotivated or unsure how to proceed with life. She doesn’t spoon feed you the solutions which enables your own problem solving skills. Highly recommend if you are looking for a professional to keep you accountable.”

“Alyssa was a wonderful Doula! I would recommend her services to anyone who is expecting!
This was our first pregnancy and she was very helpful in answering all of our questions and concerns right from the beginning. We didn’t know what to expect so we had plenty of questions and she was very resourceful – helping us to set our minds at ease and providing books/research on various things including breast-feeding.
For labour, Alyssa offered many different pain management suggestions including different drug options as well as discussed our informal birth plan so she could be informed and assist the day of delivery. On the day of my labour, Alyssa was at the hospital within minutes of us getting checked in – despite the fact that it was the middle of the night! She immediately stepped in to help in any way she could – offering water, a cold cloth, attempting to ease my pain and asking if I needed anything.
Alyssa was incredible through my entire labour and delivery! She assisted while my epidural was put in and was always offering her help and encouragement through contractions.
Our son, Luke, was born at Kingston General Hospital without any complications and I couldn’t have asked for a better labour and delivery experience. Alyssa was a big part of that.
Alyssa took photos after Luke was born and stayed after the birth to assist with breast-feeding.
Once we arrived home, our two last visits with Alyssa were very helpful to answer all of my “new mom” questions. She also encouraged me to text or email her with any questions I had – this involved a late night text when I was worried about breast-feeding.
In addition to answering all of my questions, Alyssa offered me a massage for my last doula visit. This is something I would highly recommend to any new mom – very relaxing after the stress/pain of labour and delivery then the whole new experience of being a parent!
Overall, our Doula experience was great! So, to anyone considering a Doula, I highly recommend Alyssa.
Thank you so much Alyssa. You were wonderful!”
“Thank you for being there for my wife, you provided not just support but excellent encouragement and guidance.”
“You gave us a wonderful gift through your support and we will always be thankful for it.”
