What Our Clients Say About Us

“Thank you for helping us get an experience we didn’t imagine was possible. Having a natural birth was the goal but not expected, and I’m so proud of how we all worked together to bring Edie into the world.”

“She helped me set expectations about labor and delivery, which I believe ultimately helped me get through it so well.”

“Melissa was my doula for the birth of my first child. I don’t know what I would have done without her. Like most new moms I went to the hospital way too early. Melissa met me back at my house after I got discharged even though it was 3am. She kept me calm and helped me labor at home for the next 12 hours.”

“I am soooo proud of myself, this delivery was life changing for me! I couldn’t have done it without you! Even the nurse noticed that I changed when you got here! I was just waiting for you to tell me what to do and I trusted that you would help me through the delivery.”

“We took the private childbirth class and it was wonderful! I highly recommend the class for new parents! I felt like I learned a lot and Erin was great.”

“100% recommend this company. Melissa is wonderful. . . . her support, knowledge, and guidance were crucial.”
