I was so happy with Faith! I knew from the first time I met her that I wanted her at my birth. I felt very comfortable in her presence and I could see how passionate she was about what she does. She provided me with many resources, and I also really appreciated the teas she made me. Her evidence based approach was very unbiased and nonjudgmental. I felt like I could be honest about my needs with her. Her childbirth education classes were also very helpful to me, she presented information in a straightforward, easy to understand, and again, nonjudgmental way.  She really proved herself when the birthday came. She was my knight in shining armor! She made me feel so confident and comforted through my labor. Her knowledge of a birthing woman's body and need for support was obvious. I credit my smooth labor and delivery to her and I would be so blessed to have her at another birth of mine. I would reccomend her a million times over to anyone looking for a doula.

Faith was awesome.  She was very informative in setting up the birth plan.  Any questions we had she would tell us what she new about it or she would research the topic and get back with us.  She came to the house for all of the meetings.  When Meghan started to go into labor Faith came over worked with us at the house, once Meghan progressed far enough to go to the hospital Faith came with.  At the hospital she was a huge help communicating with the doctors and nurses, letting them know what we wanted to do.  Also telling us what they wanted to do.  Faith was their the whole time.  After we brought her home Faith came over again to make sure everything was going good.  She brought over a birth story of how everything went down.  Faith was a huge help through all of this, I am sure I am forgetting alot.  Her knowledge on the topic makes it alot easier on yourself.    From all of the essential oils, teas, foods, yoga, techinques, and everything else I forgot.  I highly recommend Faith for your doula services.  She takes alot of weight off your shoulders making sure you are prepared and ready for everything in the birth process.

Faith reached out to us in a Facebook group offering her services when we couldn't afford help because I so badly wanted a VBAC. By my own choice I did not attempt a VBAC or TOL. Faith was extremely supportive and informative, any questions I had for her she had informed opinions to answer me with as well as many articles and literature that were easy to understand and help me make the right decisions. Most importantly she felt like a friend who had your back. She attended an appointment with me where she asked questions that I had forgotten or didn't think of and she also took it upon herself to tour the facility I was going tobirth at(although things changed in the end). I felt very supported and was glad to have Faith by my side during a very stressful 3rd trimester as well as delivery of my beautiful baby girl.

Faith was my doula for the birth of my son, and she did an exceptional job.  Her support was invaluable, not only during my labor, but before and after my birth.  My waters ruptured and contractions never began - with her support and experience I was able to make an informed choice about my next step.  During labor she was constantly attentive and completely prepared.  Her presence was an immense help not only to me, but to the hospital staff and to my partner. 
Because of Faith, I was able to make the choices that were right for me and have the birth that was right for me and my son.
