Grace Cutler

I used Abbie as my Doula with my third (but first hosptial) birth. She was very informative and helpful leading up to the birth and was so awesome to have at the birth! She made my transition from home births (with my first two) to hospital birth go so well! She was a wonderful calming presence, who helped me to keep my focus when things got hard. I wouldn't have wanted to do it without her there!
