"Cindy was an absolute gem, and so invaluable with the birth of our daughter. Cindy is incredibly kind, approachable and thoughtful.
Before we went into labour, Cindy was always on the end of the phone for us to ask any questions we had, but also checked in with us to make sure we were feeling OK! This was reassuring :) Cindy also helped prepare us for labour by providing lots of information and talking it through with us, making sure we knew our options. This included different techniques for steve to help me through my contractions.
Cindy is really thoughtful - Cindy’s hospital bag was full of different items to help keep our birthing environment calm, and also to help post labour. The bag was incredible!!
During our labour, Cindy always asked to help, and then supported us both in different ways (massage and visualisations for myself, and supporting my husband). This was very important to me as my husband was a huge support and part of the labour and was nice to know he had someone looking out for him. Cindy worked with the medical staff and ensured my birthing preferences were followed as closely as possible, which took the pressure off us so we could focus.
Cindy also took loads of photos throughout the day for us. I’m grateful for these to look back on.
Lastly Cindy has still kept in contact with us post our birth, to check in with how we are doing and how our daughter is. Cindy was instrumental for us, and I’m grateful for every chat, meet up and everything she did on the day itself, and couldn’t recommend Cindy enough! Thank you for being there with us!"
