"Having a doula was extremely beneficial to me, my husband and our babies. As a new mom I had a steep learning curve to go through starting immediately with our arrival at home. Having an extra pair of expert hands available to help with whatever I needed really made a huge difference in my overall sense of well-being, eased my worried mind, and gave me a confidence boost as I built my skill set. Even after those first few days, having a doula there was very helpful and allowed me to get my bearings as I started my journey into motherhood. Their ability to work with us despite our limited income was a welcome relief. I will be forever grateful for their assistance, support and friendship during this important time! My husband and I would definitely recommend."

It is wonderful to have the assurance of and look forward to regular visits from someone who you can trust completely and is willing and able to help you out with everything from breastfeeding support to baby care to making sure the new mother is fed/hydrated/rested to helping older siblings adjust - plus all the little household things like laundry and dishes that you haven't been able to get around to since baby was born!"
