"It has been just over a year since we welcomed our son into the world with Bethany's amazing guidance and support. She was there for us in the lead up, the birth and in those early weeks as brand new parents and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to be supporting us!
After living abroad for a couple of years, we arrived back in Australia with about 10 weeks to go before our 'guess date' - in amongst starting jobs, finding a place to live, finalising a hospital...we found Bethany - a warm, caring, positive person with a great attitude who both my wife and I clicked with straight away!
Bethany's guidance and support was invaluable to us in the lead up to the birth. She helped us both to feel confident and relaxed (as much as you can be in the lead up to the birth of your first child)!
As I was supporting my wife, Bethany also provided support and acknowledgement specifically for me around this journey. We discussed some of the pressures that I may face leading up to and after the birth and how best to manage these. Bethany involved me in all parts of the support for Amelia and guided me in providing continued support between visits from her. I was also given the tools to provide comfort and reassurance for my wife in the final weeks and days in the lead up to the birth of our son.
We would not think twice about asking Bethany to be our Doula again for our second!"
