Our Family's Thoughts
When our second son arrived, these amazing doulas came into our home and they were like angels sent from heaven! They brought calm to chaos, with breastfeeding support, helping with sibling adjustment, making meals, doing laundry and a ton of other 'little' things that made a BIG difference at such a critical time for our family. Thank you so much, Your Village, for being exactly what we needed! We really couldn't have done it without you!

I thought I knew everything there was to know about becoming a Mom. I read every book, signed up on every website and talked with all my "expert friends" about what to expect. But as my pregnancy went on I was more and more nervous about what was coming next. A friend of mine suggested I use a Doula for my birth planning and labour support, WOW what a difference! Lynsey was the calm to my storm and her constant support was undeniably what helped me through a hard labour and lengthy recovery. But it wasn't just me she supported my husband felt so involved through the whole process and we are better today after receiving support. It really does take a village and I am so glad we found the right one!
Thank you, thank you!

I do not know how to thank Lynsey and Your Village London enough. She was everything I didn't know I needed! She was so knowledgeable and supportive throughout my pregnancy. But I honestly had no idea how much I would need her after. My recovery was long and breastfeeding was harder then I ever imagined. But Lynsey knew I wanted to nurse my son and she never gave up on me, even when I did. Thank you for being in the trenches with me and never giving up! I look forward to working with you again for our next one!

Because of the overwhelmingly large number of family we have in the city, we decided to use Your Village London's Intimate Partners Birth Program for our labour and delivery and we are SO happy we did! My partner and I have never been so connected! Although my labour was long in hours, each hour brought my husband and I closer. He was so confident in the ways to support me during labour and I was so open to letting him guide me through the pain. Taking Your Village London's Intimate Partners Birth Program made all the difference. We also choose to purchase several hours of Postpartum Support which turned into several packages of Postpartum Support because we loved the guidance we were given, and the peace of mind that we were keeping our tiny human alive and well! Oh and did I mention the food! Yummy! I may have another baby just to have Lynsey bring me those dinners again!
Thank you from all our family for making this journey so memorable!

Even as a second time mom, I loved having Lynsey as a support. From exercise ideas, to helping me identify what I was experiencing, offering tips and ideas to relieve pain and discomfort. She was excellent at including our older kids when they had questions, or wanted to be involved. I wish my birth experience would have allowed me to utilize more of her fantastic suggestions. During our time in the hospital, it was nice having someone help me articulate and advocate for myself, and further explain some of the medical jargon. The after care was phenomenal; the home visits were so appreciated during that hectic time. And the weight checks between doctor visits definitely relieved some worry!
I would recommend the doula service to anyone! Thanks so much Lynsey❤️
"This year wouldn’t be so wonderful and happy without your help.
From the start you were knowledgeable and had a great, easygoing approach. And your smile, openness, reinforced with hugs did wonders. Thank You for being with us every moment you were needed.
I know it’s the job, and the contract, but with the energy You carried for us, we felt special."
Cannot say enough how grateful for Lynsey Denis at Your Village London we are. Lynsey helped us resolve our daughters sleep issues and provided us with a plan that suited our family along with all the support we needed. She is truly knowledgeable and passionate about her work and I would highly recommend Your Village London to anyone looking for prenatal/postnatal support or consultation for sleep or feeding.
