We trust Catherine 100% — so much so that we’ve left our daughter with her for several nights. Although Catherine has her JD and a master’s degree, she has chosen to be a doula. If this doesn’t speak to how much Catherine loves what she does, I don’t know what would! She treats our daughter like her own and we couldn’t be more grateful to have her in our lives.

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We LOVED having Jessica as our postpartum doula. I interviewed her a couple of months before our second daughter was born and felt an instant connection and trust with her. With my first daughter I suffered from PPD so we wanted to set our family up with the most support possible. Jessica did just that. We had the luxury of having her come to our home for four weeks and she cared for my daughter and me and in turn the rest of our family. She was trustworthy, punctual, informative and most importantly nurturing which is just what a postpartum mama and baby need at such a delicate time. The hardest part is letting her go! Please do not hesitate in hiring Jessica for your Doula needs.She's a fairy godmother! We are so blessed we had her with us! ~Katie D.

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

Her genuine humor coupled with knowledge and passion made her a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Ultimately, it’s hard to imagine the birth of our daughter without Brianna’s support. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for that support and guidance.

As soon-to-be first time parents, we did all we could to read about pregnancy and the birth process but nothing comes close to having a Doula like Brianna to ask questions and have discussions with. Her genuine humor coupled with knowledge and passion made her a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Ultimately, it’s hard to imagine the birth of our daughter without Brianna’s support. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for that support and guidance.

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

We LOVED having Jessica as our postpartum doula. I interviewed her a couple of months before our second daughter was born and felt an instant connection and trust with her. With my first daughter I suffered from PPD so we wanted to set our family up with the most support possible. Jessica did just that. We had the luxury of having her come to our home for four weeks and she cared for my daughter and me and in turn the rest of our family. She was trustworthy, punctual, informative and most importantly nurturing which is just what a postpartum mama and baby need at such a delicate time. The hardest part is letting her go! Please do not hesitate in hiring Jessica for your Doula needs.She's a fairy godmother! We are so blessed we had her with us! ~Katie D.

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We LOVED having Jessica as our postpartum doula. I interviewed her a couple of months before our second daughter was born and felt an instant connection and trust with her. With my first daughter I suffered from PPD so we wanted to set our family up with the most support possible. Jessica did just that. We had the luxury of having her come to our home for four weeks and she cared for my daughter and me and in turn the rest of our family. She was trustworthy, punctual, informative and most importantly nurturing which is just what a postpartum mama and baby need at such a delicate time. The hardest part is letting her go! Please do not hesitate in hiring Jessica for your Doula needs.She's a fairy godmother! We are so blessed we had her with us! ~Katie D.

As soon-to-be first time parents, we did all we could to read about pregnancy and the birth process but nothing comes close to having a Doula like Brianna to ask questions and have discussions with. Her genuine humor coupled with knowledge and passion made her a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Ultimately, it’s hard to imagine the birth of our daughter without Brianna’s support. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for that support and guidance.

Testimonial
We trust Catherine 100% — so much so that we’ve left our daughter with her for several nights. Although Catherine has her JD and a master’s degree, she has chosen to be a doula. If this doesn’t speak to how much Catherine loves what she does, I don’t know what would! She treats our daughter like her own and we couldn’t be more grateful to have her in our lives.

Testimonial
Within five minutes of meeting Lenore, I knew she had to be my Doula, she had the exact temperament that I knew I would need when I was ready to give birth. She is kind, gentle, but means business- my kind of woman! She knew exactly what I needed before even having to communicate it. The O.B and nurses were very impressed by her work. ~Andy

Testimonial
As soon-to-be first time parents, we did all we could to read about pregnancy and the birth process but nothing comes close to having a Doula like Brianna to ask questions and have discussions with. Her genuine humor coupled with knowledge and passion made her a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Ultimately, it’s hard to imagine the birth of our daughter without Brianna’s support. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for that support and guidance.
