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 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 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

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

Her presence helped make for a stellar birthing team. All the medical staff would come in and instantly comment on how calming of a space Claudia had created - I felt so held and cared for by her. Her whole vibe is positive, uplifting, and she's genuinely a pleasure to be around. We were so touched by all the details she put into her care for us.~ Alee

Testimonial
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

I worked with Nevelyn for 8 months and can absolutely say that she is one of the most nurturing, calming ,and dedicated person I know. Nevelyn was extremely patient and loving with my new experience as a first time mom, she was more than a Postpartum doula she was a mentor that I could count on to clarify my doubts and fears, she made me and my family feel secure and safe in our Journey as first time parents - Irene
