"Brony was our Birth Doula for our first child. I am so grateful that we placed our faith in her to help us through all the anxieties and adventures that came with it!
She helped us with questions and information before the birth and made sure we could come up with Birth Preferences that suited us. She was always there for support via phone calls and texts and visits in the lead up to the birth.
And, when the birth didn't go as planned; she was an incredible support, not just for me, but for my husband and family as well.
I honestly don't want to think about how my birth would have gone without Brony there.
She is incredibly kind and warm, and her presence in the room made everything much calmer, which meant that even though my birth didn't go as planned I was still able to welcome my son into the world the way I wanted.
I cannot recommend her enough."
“I hired Brony as a Post Partum Doula following the birth of my third child and it was the best decision I made.
Brony was an exceptional support to me as I navigated life as a mother of 3 under 4yrs with a husband who was very busy with work.
She has a lovely, non-intrusive nature and was able to provide a holistic approach in caring for me, our newborn and two older kids. I believe that motherhood is one of the toughest, yet rewarding, journeys I have been on, and to have the support that a doula can provide is priceless.
Not only in a physical sense but mentally as well.
Thank you BB!"
"When I found out we were having twins the only thing I knew for certain was that I didn’t want their birth to be as traumatic as the birth of their big brother. I don’t know at which stage of my pregnancy I thought of hiring a doula but I’m so, so happy I did.
When I first met Brony I knew that I had made the right decision. She welcomed me with a massive hug and it felt like I was talking to an old friend.
Throughout the rest of my pregnancy Brony was always there: for information, chats, reassurance or just to encourage me on days that I struggled. She was there on the phone, in the middle of the night through several false alarms.
Brony was there in person at my labour, she helped me breathe through each contraction, kept me focused and occasionally we even shared a laugh. And when I had a caesarean birth and she couldn't be with me, she waited with my mum all through the night until she could again. Brony was there as I cried because my babies had to be taken to the Special Care Nursery at a different hospital. She was there during those difficult days after the twins’ birth and she was there the day the girls came home, for emotional and practical support.
I cannot recommend anybody more beautiful than Brony.
She is beauty, calm, radiance, happiness, wisdom and love personified."
"You are utterly amazing Brony!
Thank you for making me feel so listened to and loved in the lead up to my Caesarean Birth.
You were born to do this, thank you xx"

"I was lucky enough to be surrounded with the most beautiful village for the birth of our second daughter Tovia Bez and one of my biggest supporters was Doula BB.
(Due to Covid it had to be virtually)!
My first birth wasn’t at all what I envisioned and I was quite traumatised by the whole experience so I knew I had to mentally prepare myself and surround myself with the best crew going into my second labour. I couldn’t have done it without Brony, she always had time to listen to me and give me the best pep talks during pregnancy but especially during my (once again) very long early stages of labour. She kept me focused and positive whilst contracting most nights for a week leading up to giving birth.
I had the most beautiful birthing experience and I did it by surrounding myself with an wonderful team of my amazing husband, my wonderful midwife, and my doula.
I recommend her so highly.
As she always says: everyone deserves a doula, but I say: everyone deserves Doula BB!"
