Testimonials

I have kindly been given permission to share the following feedback with you:

“A colleague referred Manda to me when I was about 5 months pregnant and immediately I knew I was in perfect hands. Her passion, confidence and knowledge shone throughout our numerous conversations. Being a first time parent I had zero idea what was ahead of me but I knew I had someone I could always talk to whenever it got tough and we would problem solve together.”
– Frieda, who I assisted in my role as Postnatal Doula

“I carried my older children in a popular brand’s ‘do-it-all’ sling which was easy enough to fit but didn’t last long as it quickly became uncomfortable as they grew and now, looking back, probably wasn’t used as safely as possible. With my youngest Manda showed me how to use a wrap and that was so much nicer to wear and more comfortable for me and my daughter and I had the peace of mind of knowing we were using it safely.”
– Ian, who I assisted in my role as Carrying Consultant

“The only reason I could breastfeed exclusively for 6 months and give my baby the best possible start in life was because of Manda. I honestly cannot recommend her enough.”
– Priya, who I assisted in my role as Breastfeeding Supporter

“I had no clue with my first [birth], I just did what I was told with the attitude that it would all be worth it in the end. I wanted to meet my baby and I didn’t realise how much the birth itself would matter. I struggled emotionally afterwards with some of what happened as it wasn’t at all like I imagined. It was such a different experience this time around. The right support and information can change everything.”
– Kay, who I assisted in my role as Doula

“I bought a sling with every intention of using it, I watched a tonne of videos on youtube and it still sat in its bag. It wasn’t until I had a session with Manda that I had the confidence use that sling that had gone untouched for over a month. Since then – you can’t stop me! She has ‘wrap naps’ in it most days and it has definitely brought us closer.”
