“Amy was wonderful. She knew exactly how to soothe me, calm me, touch me etc. to help get me through each contraction. I don’t know what I would have done if she hadn’t been there helping my husband.”

“With other young children to care for, and feeling confident in my newborn-care skills, I felt that my postpartum needs were of the light chore variety. Andrea was more than clean-up help though (although the laundry-lugging and tidying were much needed, well-done, and appreciated!) She is warm, friendly, kind, gentle, enthusiastic, encouraging. She listened to me and encouraged me. She picked up a few items from the grocery store on the way over to my place. The transition to taking care of three children was a bumpy one for me! She encouraged me to take my feelings into consideration (with a postpartum mood checklist of sorts). Amy invited me to join a knitting group when we discovered we both enjoyed knitting. These encouragements were just what I needed. I feel that if I didn’t have the support I had, I would have had much worse depression than I did. Too many of us (mamas especially) think we have to do it ourselves, to our detriment. I am so glad that I hired Andrea (and Amy) – I can say for certain that it was more than worth it! They are a blessing!”

“Amy was my Doula for my first birth from a few months into pregnancy to postpartum… She consistently supported my husband and I through the prenatal/planning process.  This was such a huge source of direction for me and I could not imagine my journey otherwise.  During labor Amy applied a variety of techniques to help me cope through discomfort… I had a very long and tiring labor and she was with me every step of the way.  My husband wanted to be involved in the process and Amy guided him as well, suggesting coping methods for him to try with me. She was also a great support to him, checking in on him during labor and offering encouragement.  We had to transfer to the hospital and Amy was there and prepared, making necessary arrangements at home.  Looking back, having her unwavering support was such a light during my labor.  She truly encouraged and cheered me on!  After our sweet daughter arrived Amy was consistently checking in on us and made house visits to talk, help & support me through breastfeeding.  I never once felt like she was doing a job; I felt like I had a true friend who truly wanted to be there for us… Amy is an amazing doula that I would recommend to anyone!”

” (Andrea was) The best postpartum doula! She was absolutely wonderful with my sweet baby girl and she was so comforting to me as a new mama. She made me feel like everything I was going through was normal and was so reassuring.  I felt so much less crazy after her visits, and my husband felt so much less guilty about going back to work when he ran out of time off knowing she was there for me during those early days.”

Andrea was my postpartum doula and was AMAZING. She helped clean and fold laundry, and most importantly, helped with my 2 year old while I took care of the baby. I can’t recommend her enough!

Postpartum doulas worth their weight in gold. Integral to getting my breastfeeding relationship off to the right start, and a stand-in for the sister wife I never had. If I ever have another child, they will be my birth doulas as well!”

When my wife went into pre-labor contractions, Amy was very helpful in showing me how to help her.  She also did a fantastic job calming (wife) & making her comfortable.  At the delivery, Amy was very helpful in advising me how to help (wife) and offering suggestions on many items that I didn’t think of (positioning, calming techniques).  She also helped with (wife’s) physical needs so that I could help with her emotional needs.  Overall, I found Amy very helpful & am glad that we obtained the services of a doula.  I was very happy with the level of care & service that Amy provided.”

Our doula exceeded our expectations.  My labor was difficult for me because I had been so scared of being induced.  Amy was so encouraging and her massage techniques and other coaching helped me relax and have an enjoyable birth.  My husband raved about Amy’s service and how “she was worth every penny”.  Amy was also extremely helpful during her postnatal visits.  She taught me how to wear Grey (my baby) and cleaned my house and made me food.”
