I used HCD to hire a birth doula (Kelley Ellis) for the birth of my 3rd child in 8/2019. Moriah was very responsive from the first time I contacted her. She arranged for me to meet all of her team so that I could get a feel for personalities/skill sets and decide who I felt would be a good fit for me. I met with Kelley mid-way through my pregnancy to make a plan for baby day and then as due date got closer and my body prepped for the birth, we kept in contact weekly then daily. She and Moriah checked in with me regularly and in the last couple of days leading to birth when I was tired and impatient, Kelley coached me through and helped me keep focused and moving. My water broke at night and Kelley made a very fast arrival at the hospital to meet me. On arrival at hospital, Kelley got right to work with hip squeezes during my contractions and just helping me stay focused on the work and not on the pain. She was calm, reassuring and encouraging when I needed her to be. She stayed with me after the birth until I told her I felt ok for her to go. She also took some
pictures and video. In the days and weeks following, she and Moriah checked on me to see how I was recovering. 
Post partum, I hired Amber through Moriah for some post partum family care. Amber is a good communicator and good at anticipating what needs to be done to help. She took care of baby while I managed my older children, and switched out with me as needed. In the little downtime she had from kids, she helped organize big kids for next school day, folded diapers and even washed my dishes! She was punctual, excellent at managing my very screamy baby during witching hours and helped me keep my sanity when my husband was out of town!
I wholeheartedly recommend HCD. Moriah is on her game and will do whatever it takes to help you find what you need. If you are not sure if you really need a doula- trust me- you do! Call HCD and meet with them. You will not regret the decision!

Moriah was my saving grace during my labor! I had no idea how quickly my baby was going to come, but she showed up and helped me through and I know I couldn't have done it without her. I knew right away that Moriah would be the perfect doula for me when I met her. She has a calming presence and that carried over into the birth of our baby girl. She kept telling me I was much closer to seeing my baby than I thought, and I kept thinking she was crazy! Sure enough, about 2 hours after my painful contractions began, I was welcoming my sweet girl into the world. I can't recommend Moriah enough!

My husband and I met with Moriah with Houston Central Doulas and could not be more pleased with our experience! She was prompt, courteous, and open to all of our questions--no matter how off-the-wall they may have been. Due to my and my husband's work schedules, signing up for a multiple-hour long birth class or committing a full Saturday to a class was not something that we could make happen. Thankfully, we found Moriah and Houston Central Doulas. Moriah came to our home after we got home from work, and was primed and ready with helpful explanations to all of our first-time parent concerns. She is incredibly warm and welcoming, and we felt instantly comfortable with her. We highly recommend Moriah and Houston Central Doulas!
