Pam

Isis was an amazing postpartum doula! She really helped me through the first six months of my daughter's life, when I was experiencing very intense postpartum depression and anxiety. Isis was very reassuring and gave me great pointers on things to do with the baby, and helped me figure out how to simultanesouly take care of myself and the baby. Every time she came over, I breathed a sigh of relief. i can't recommend her enough.

I went to my midwife and she told me about a Doula service, I was kind of skeptical at first and didn't really want to have someone I didnt know come to my home and tell me how to do things for my baby. But as soon as I met Isis, I liked her immidietly. She was very nice, caring and understanding about everything. She was the automatic first person I would contact about everything regarding my baby. She's very energetic and an amazing person, she's basically the best person you could ever meet. She has a very welcoming personality, and I felt very connected to her, almost as if we were related. When I went into labor my family couldn't make it because we live in different cities, I wanted some more support aside from my daughter's father and I knew Isis was only one call away. She was at the hospital 20 minutes after I called her at 4 in the morning. She was always on time, and she helped me through my labor, she physically helped me and held my leg while I was in labor. I seriously could not have done it and been as strong as I was without her. I couldn't have asked for a better Doula, and good friend.

I'm not really sure what to write but I wanted to praise Isis.  We meet for the first time a few months before my due date. She was very friendly and I automatically felt comfortable with her.  She even came to my home,  which was nice with me not driving.  She was so personable.  I loved that she didn't try to push any of her beliefs on me but encouraged my plan and ideas for an ideal birth.  I am so thankful for her.  When it came time to me giving birth she prepared and helped my birth couch (my mom) be prepared. She didn't leave my side for the full 13+ hours of labor.  Thanks to her I was able to have a completely natural labor.  Honestly it was my dream labor and I hope when I have more kids I am to haves Isis by my side.

Isis has a friendly, approachable and easygoing nature. She had lots of information and educational printouts to help me have the kind of birth I was hoping for. She arrived at the hospital right away, and was a great support when I gave birth unmedicated. She also took amazing photos after the birth, which was a nice surprise!
