Birth and Beyond GTA
My husband and I were expecting twins in July and we couldn`t figure out how we were going to make it through the beginning stages after birth with two newborns and a toddler at home. On the recommendation of my Aunt, we met with Cheryl and Chari and instantly felt comfortable with them. We knew it was going to be a good fit. I had a C-section and was in the hospital for 3 days after birth. After a very difficult second night, I knew I needed help for my last night in the hospital. They came to the hospital with last minute notice and sat by my side helping to care for the babies, with feedings and any additional needs of mine, to get me through a very difficult night. For the next two weeks, they came to our house and spent every night with our babies, assisting with breastfeeding and tackling any challenge that came our way. There was one particular night when I was in a great deal of pain from my C-section. It was 1am and I was in tears from the pain. I sat with Cheryl as she started to call any resource she could find open at 1am and figure out how to deal with my pain and get me through the night. Birth and Beyond GTA doulas made my first two weeks as a mom of newborn twins a manageable time. With their help, I was able to get the rest I needed to tackle the challenge of newborn twins.
"With an enormously irreplaceable help of Cheryl Wise & Chari Schwartz(Best Doula Team EVER!♡) WE DID IT! ♡♡♡ ♡♡

"Cheryl and Chari’s compassion and understanding came through as soon as I spoke to them. The doulas supported my husband in a way that allowed him to fully focus on me throughout the birth.
I knew I wanted a more relaxed experience. We were planning for a vaginal delivery of our twins and knew that we would need two doulas to help us through. Cheryl and Chari were by side from the moment I connected with them.
Things didn’t go as I had planned. I was pushing for a long time. I was tired. Although my baby ended up being born as a c-section, I felt the most attended to during my birth experience by my doula team. They reassured me that I was doing a great job and never left my side."
"I had a great first experience with Chari and Cheryl from Birth and Beyond GTA. My niece and nephew were new first parents and were in need of some rest, support and comfort. I contacted Birth and Beyond who then asked questions to help assess the needs of the family. With short notice (less than 24 hours later) Chari was able to do a 12-hour night shift to give our niece and nephew the support they needed. They were so happy with the care for their son that they called them back for another shift the following night. I will continue to recommend their service for other families in the future."
...And now a word from our staunch supporters
If anyone in the Toronto area is looking for a doula, I have the perfect girl for you. Last night I was lucky enough to have Chari come over for the night. She was AMAZING. She was so warm an caring and instantly clicked with my baby. Her knowledge on motherhood and baby care was exceptional. There was not one question that I had that she couldn't answer. She was there for me throughout my pregnancy and she could also be there for you delivery. Last night I had a full night sleep and woke up feeling refreshed and to a well fed baby. I highly recommend a doula throughout pregnancy and onwards.
