“Brittany Oracheski was and still is an incredible blessing to our family’s story. I recommend a doula to absolutely every pregnant woman and I highly recommend Brittany to my closest friends. She helped to make our labour experience one of joy and peace. She walked us through the difficult transition of welcoming our first newborn. She has proved to be a wealth of knowledge and encouragement in the weeks following the delivery. Words cannot adequately express the gratitude we feel towards Brittany and the work she did. A thousand times, thank you.” ~Kate + Kyle
“My husband and I moved to Wainwright just a month before our daughter’s due date and we are so glad we met Brittany soon after our arrival. She helped us feel more at ease by discussing what we might expect during labour and delivery, and helping us to make informed decisions about what we wanted the birth experience to be like. She really helped my husband feel more prepared by answering his questions and teaching him massage and coaching techniques that he could use to help me during birth.
When I went into labour, Brittany worked in tandem with my husband to help me achieve my goal of delivering my healthy baby girl without using any drugs. Her back massages and hot packs were a lifesaver during intense contractions, and her calm demeanor and breathing techniques helped me refocus when the experience felt overwhelming. When complications arose after delivery, Brittany remained with my husband and daughter while the medical team worked on me and she then gave me much-needed support with breastfeeding a few hours later.
Overall, having Brittany as our doula was a great decision. My husband and I would recommend her services to other parents-to-be who are looking for professional and knowledgeable support to help them achieve a positive birth experience.” ~Emily + Graham
“I was a little hesitant to commit to hiring a Doula at first. After having two births that in the end I was uncomfortable with, I figured it couldn’t hurt to have a second voice for myself. And in an hectic environment with many other opinions raining down on me, that kind of support made me feel safe to trust my own judgement. Brittany was amazing. This was my third birth and I have to say I felt so at ease and supported throughout. My husband had to go home to tuck my sons into bed and it just so happened that while he was away so much happened! Having Brittany to coach me and to hold onto while I got my epidural helped me to stay calm and to focus. Brittany is such an understanding and kind person and I am so truly grateful to have had her as part of my birthing team. If we have another child I would definitely want Brittany again!” ~Rebecca + James
“Brittany was recommended to us by a friend who had just had her baby, and we are so glad she did! Brittany’s doula services were great; she has a very good instinct with expectant parents and will give you as much or as little guidance as you want or need. Subsequently, she was a good advocate to have in the delivery room. Throughout our pregnancy, delivery and postpartum, Brittany was a great support person and we were happy to have had her by our side. She also takes excellent newborn photos in the delivery room, should you want that service as well.” ~Melanie + David
