What people are saying about DOULA!
|"I found the film utterly breathtaking and felt instantly inspired to employ the services of a doula for our next birth." JUNO Magazine|
|“This film has some of the most amazing waterbirth/pushing video I have ever seen and shows mothers in various phases of labor, managing labor with nonpharmacological pain relief methods such as positioning, hydrotherapy, walking, squatting, breathing, focusing, vocalization and more! Such joy, confidence and relaxation on the mother and father’s faces ~ the way birth should be!" Connie Livingston, President Perinatal Associates, Birthsource.com|
|"I’d recommend any soon-to-be mum considering a doula to watch this video. It is not only informative but sheds a very positive light on the whole birth experience.” Babyworld.co.uk|
|"The first birth (a home waterbirth) was lovely and I would consider showing it as an educational piece to women and their partners. The calm reassurance being given by the doulas and the practical support, which freed up the partners to be more physically and emotionally involved, was wonderful." MIDWIVES Magazine|
|“The film gave me goosebumps and I had tears streaming down my cheeks” Suzanne Borrell, Director BabyExpo & The Business Mums Conference|
|"Scene after scene of this moving and visually beautiful film demonstrates what is possible in the realm of support, for mothers and fathers, during life’s most essential transition, the birth of the family. With the love, skill and commitment provided by a professional doula, she can be ‘the ultimate birth companion’."
Patrick Houser, author Fathers-To-Be Handbook, director FathersToBe.org
|“I bought the movie for the sole purpose that it shows birth to be a right of passage NOT to be feared. This movie beautifully demonstrates the normality of birth”. Kerri Warner, Final Year Midwifery Student, Perth, Western Australia|
|“I am a doula certified with DONA and love your film. It will be a tool I can use in my business even though most births I attend are in the hospital. Thanks for providing this film.” Debbie Meissner CD(DONA)|
|"I wanted to let you know I think it's an absolutely amazing film. I am planning to train as a Doula in October and decided to invest in your film first to back up my belief that it is the right thing for me to do.
Your film has definitely confirmed for me this is the right path to follow. It is filmed so beautifully and respectfully. It is a truly inspirational piece of work and it has left me feeling a little bit awe-struck and very excited about my future.
It is a film every expectant parent should see. If I had seen this before the birth of my first child I would have felt empowered to make the choices I wanted." Doula trainee
