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
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
