"We are really grateful for the opportunity to have Eva support us during the preparation of the arrival of our second child. Her knowledge and understanding made us feel very comfortable to discuss our fears and hopes. We would highly recommend Eva if you would like someone who genuinely cares and wants you to achieve your ideal birth experience."
Jessica and Christian Bailey, 2019
"My husband and I had Eva as a doula from My Sunrise Support even though I had a scheduled caesarian surgery and therefore all should have been reasonably easy and predictable as this was my second birth.
But of course, things did not go according to plan. The baby turned head down on the day and I was offered the option of having a natural birth. We decided to go ahead with the C-section at the end and it was the best thing for me as we later found out after the operation that my previous scar was paper thin and it would have been a high risk of it breaking down during pregnancy/labour and I would have bled internally and possibly lost my baby too.
Eva was there to provide advice and guidance to both my partner and I, without forcing any matter, just presenting the facts, and supporting us in our decisions. She is very informed and up to date with everything that has to do with birth.
She was at the hospital even before us, and stayed with us throughout the whole experience, the good moments and scary parts. She waited for me to come out of surgery and had a cuddle with our newborn baby boy and made sure I had plenty of food to snack on as she remembered I told her that after my first c-section I was starving ( haha ). I wish she had been there the first time around too :-)
My husband, although at the start sceptical of a doula, said ‘ I was very comfortable because Eva was very professional but at the same time warm with us and was looking after my wife so I could enjoy a longer skin to skin with our newborn without having to worry’.
She was there to help us and I now attend her group that supports mothers where she continues to support me on my motherhood journey.
It was a great experience for us and we will be forever grateful to her. I will certainly recommend Eva at My Sunrise Support services".

"I have been attending the birth relaxation classes for several weeks with Eva. It’s such a treat to have an hour to myself and to focus on positivity and this new baby, particularly as its my second pregnancy and I have a toddler running around most of the time!
Even though it’s online at the moment, Eva creates a calm, safe and inviting space to focus on yourself and your baby, discuss any fears, and enjoy positive relaxation with the scripts she uses.
This class is great for any mum to be, looking to escape to a calm space and take a short amount of time to focus on you, your baby and a positive birth experience."

"Eva has such a positive energy about pregnancy and birth. She was able to keep me positive during my pregnancy and enabled me to look forward to giving birth in difficult circumstances.
I hired a birthing pool from Eva which she was able to help me set up and as my doula was there in plenty of time to get it ready on the day when I was in labour which meant I could concentrate on getting though each surge knowing that everything else was being organised.
She made my birth space so beautiful on the day and made sure the environment was calm and peaceful for me to birth in.
I would highly recommend Eva as your birth doula if you want someone to keep things calm and relaxed...whatever the circumstances and whatever type of birth you have."
"In 2018 Eva supported me throughout ny 3rd pregnancy. She came to appointments and helped me build the right birth for me and the hospital to respect what I wanted. I had planned a home bith. Sadly on the 8th September 2018 I had to rush to hospital as I was bleeding. We called Eva on the way and she came straight away. My son Alfie was stillborn. This was of course was not the birth we had planned for nor ever expected. I was Eva's first client as a doula but she was amazing. I don't think I would have survived those early days without her. In 2019 I fell pregnant with my daughter. Eva again was my doula throughout the pregnancy. I was so scared the whole time but she managed to calm me down. It was a long 9 months not only for me but my husband too. I had a planned c-section and although normally you can only have one birth partner in theatre due to what happened before the consultants allowed both my husband and Eva there. I struggle to put into words how good Eva is and how supportive she has been because there are no words for everything she does. This isn’t just a job to Eva. She truly cares. I couldn't ask for a better doula."
