"I chose Victoria as she had a wonderful knowledge of breastfeeding and was very calm, open, kind and caring with maternal understanding… I would say that the help is essential. Not only with your home but emotional support too. Just knowing that someone was going to come and that I'd be able to have a shower/a sleep if I needed. I found it very easy to have someone else around in the house as it is only 3-4 hours a day. I found this a perfect balance. Also knowing that help is offered with anything and everything (shopping etc…) She answered lots of questions and even lent me a few books to read on certain issues I was having. She offered a lot of support and guidance too. Victoria was great around my son too and was hands on with anything and everything."

"Victoria helped me with advice on ideal feeding positions as we were bottle-feeding our daughter, practical things such as wind and digestion, general discussions on baby development, next steps and expectations as well as being kind enough to help me with many, many books. She is very good in terms of offering pros and cons of various issues i.e. dummy use, yet lets you decide what you believe is the best for your baby. My experience has been excellent."
Simona, George and Eva, 3 months
“Thank-you for all your love and kindness, for your incredible patience and genuine care for all of us … be it being my agony aunt over a cup of tea, or being Mary Poppins or being a calming influence for the twins. I am so grateful for all that you have done for us and I will look back on those first two months of motherhood with twins with a smile.”
Sarah, mum to twins Chloe and Emma, newborns
"I think that the postnatal period is full of uncertainties, questions and problems. I feel that the time you really need support is after the first giddy couple of weeks, when you are alone with your baby, as usually your partner has returned to work. Most breastfeeding problems, colic, reflux etc don't display themselves until a few weeks in - that's when you need the support of a sympathetic, knowledgable doula!"
