"We loved working with Brooke. She was made to do this. She met with my husband and I a few times before my due date with my second son. She was very informative, helpful and supportive of our birth plan. She had a few exercises for us to do before hand that were very helpful for us to process through bringing another child into the world. My labor was fairly quick but it was invaluable having Brooke there to take photos of our first seconds meeting our son. It was so nice to have her present and a part of his birth. We were so glad to have her! I highly recommend her, especially if you don't know much about doulas or feel like it wouldn't be a good fit if you are considering having pain medication or don't necessarily want a fully natural birth. She was very knowledgeable and supportive of us the whole time. "

"We are writing to whole-heartedly recommend Brooke Patmor as a doula. Brooke attended the successful homebirth of our healthy daughter in April 2017. We could not imagine our unforgettable labor and birth experience without her guidance and support.
Brooke exudes a calm, warmth and confidence. Throughout our very long labor, she helped us remain centered and confident through modelling and gentle coaching. She remained present always, stepped in to provide help when she knew it was needed, and stepped back to help empower us as we navigated the process as a couple. She is extremely knowledgeable. She identified that our baby was in posterior position and swiftly suggested and modelled positions that successfully turned our baby around. She brought a firm, loving and gentle touch to every position, providing a sense of safety and comfort.
We know that Brooke is committed to serving families through labor and birth because of the incredible experience she has, because of her performance during our birth and also through the relationship we developed. Her passion for birth, women’s empowerment and families is tangible. We encourage all interested parents to consider her talent, experience, skills and lovely personality.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding our incredible doula."

"As first-time parents, my husband and I had lots of questions about the birth of our baby daughter. Brooke took the time to answer them and help us envision what an ideal birth would look like. During labor, Brooke helped me stay calm and focused on my breathing and coached me through a variety of positions. She was not only a vital part of the delivery, but also helped us adjust to our new life as parents once we returned home."
