“I have to tell you, I never imagined that a (Postpartum) Doula could be so helpful! She is very knowledgeable and always has some tips for me which is sooooooo helpful for a new mom! She is also very kind and caring which (our baby) loves! She is just a fun, amazing person to be around! I cannot tell you enough how much difference she made for me as a new mom who has no family here! We just love her!!!!!!!” – AA

“Hi there, I just wanted to say a very big thank you to Carissa for helping me along my pregnancy journey. I couldn’t have asked for a better Doula. From the minute we met, my husband and I were so comfortable with her presence. She understood exactly what we were looking in terms of support, and followed through all the way post birth. She was very fast at addressing any concerns we had at any time of day, and provided relevant research/information to read up on as well, which was very helpful. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a Doula, since she made us feel very at ease from day one, as first time parents. Thank you again,” – AC

“It gives me great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Carissa of Babymoon Doula Solutions. I met Carissa through the Birth Doula Programme at Markham Stouffville Hospital and my husband and I instantly felt a connection to her. As first time parents, we did not know what to expect with respect to labour and birth and so it was really important to us that we had the support we needed. Choosing to have a Doula, and specifically, choosing to have Carissa as our Doula, was not a decision we made lightly. What played into our choice was her calm demeanor and her willingness to understand and work with our cultural and family values. Also importantly, she demonstrated that she would be able to respectfully help family members participate in helping me get through labour and birth. Even though I ended up having a Caesarean birth due to my baby’s breech position which was diagnosed towards the end of my labour, I do believe that having Carissa by my side helped me get through early and active labour without the help of pain medications or other interventions. She remembered my birth wishes and supported me and my family in the best way possible. For my next child, whenever that time comes, I hope to have a VBAC. Given my health factors, whether I choose an Obstetrician or a Midwife, I certainly will choose to have a Doula by my side. And when that time comes, I sincerely hope that I can have Carissa as my Doula again. All of this is just a roundabout way of saying that – yes, I definitely recommend Carissa and Babymoon Doula Services for their stellar service. Thank you Carissa! Because of your support, I am happy with the birth I got, even though it was not the birth that I envisioned.” – JF
