Andria attended the birth of our son three years ago and was invaluable helping us through some stressful complications after he was born. We could not have been more excited when she attended the birth of our daughter this fall. She is warm, professional, and so deeply supportive. As second time parents, having our memories jogged prenatally was so helpful - you just don’t realize how much you’ve forgotten since the last time around! During the birth, I was deeply reassured with just her presence alone. She also had the instincts to jump in with great suggestions through the tougher contractions to ease the discomfort. The birth of our daughter was simple and straightforward because I knew my birth team had my back the entire way through. Andria was a huge part of this and it’s hard to imagjne giving birth without her!

We were grateful for Amie's support during my pregnancy and birth. Amie's warm and friendly approach immediately made us feel comfortable. She was highly available and responsive, and we never felt pressed for time. Amie was resourceful and knowledgeable, and tailored her approach to our needs. Amie's presence during my labour was extremely reassuring and she presented me with options, which always left me feeling in control.
