"Aimée enabled me to see that I could perservere through the contractions when I felt that I might not be able to.
"Aimée, you were a huge support to me.
She used visualizations and her quiet strength and helped me to get through the contractions one at a time."
- First-time Mom
I truly believe you played an extremely important role in my labour & birth experience being a positive one.
You helped to keep me calm and focused on the present.
In the moments of confusion and pain Aimée had the right words and the comfort to get us through the whole process of labour."
