I wish I could give this wonderful service 5,000 stars. From helping to diagnose a severe tongue tie in my second little girl (which my husband and I missed in the first... leading to major nursing issues) to occupying my toddler so I could make phone calls or take a shower, Merriah’s help was truly invaluable to my postpartum experience. She’s warm, innovative, professional, and a pleasure to talk to—a real blessing during those sleepless, confusing, crazy first few weeks. Even if you have wonderful, involved family and friends nearby, there's something... just plain easier about having someone around who's sole purpose is to take care of YOUR needs, be that holding/caring for your baby while you take care of the rest of your life (or sleep at 3am!), or educating and supporting you in becoming a mama - or mama x 2, 3, 4, etc. And what a wonderful gift it would make for new parents who don't have a big local support system. Just DO it!
I could not have dreamed of a more perfect doula for our new family than Merriah, nor could I have imagined that a person would be as influential, important, and feel like family in such short order. Merriah supported us during the first three months of our baby's life. She moved seamlessly into that sacred time, caring for all of us, reading exactly what we each neeeded. She brought knowledge, experience, levity, and ease to our family. And most importanly, she helped us feel confident in our own intuition as parents and ready for the adventures ahead. I am so grateful for our time together and wish I could gift her to all growing families.
