Leeza J. Decker

Aprille is amazing!

I ended up having an induction and she was so great in supporting myself and my husband through the labor. We asked Aprille to also help with our 2 year old, and even now our daughter asks to see 'Auntie Aprille'. Aprille has so much knowledge and is one of the sweetest people. She has a number of things that I wish I had with my labor/delivery of our first. Even with the induction, this was a really easy and relaxing time for us.

I really wish we had taken up on her photography services to get great pictures of our girls meeting, Daddy and baby, etc. The Birth Center we were at had a photo service, but was so expensive and they were cookie cutter photos and I missed out on maternity photos. 

She really takes the time to get to know you, she is now almost like a sister to me, and gives so much of herself to her client. I honestly can't say enough great stuff about her!

When/If we have another, I plan on having Aprille by my side.
