Leanne Dunn

Erin was a phenomenal addition to helping us with the delivery of our 3rd baby. This was the first time we had used a doula and she far surpassed our expectations!  My husband says we will never have another baby again without one. I was wanting to have a natural delivery, and her presence in the delivery room I really believe helped make that dream possible. She is very kind, considerate, and supportive of any wishes you have regarding delivery. Erin was also very good about being available whenever I needed her and helped answer and address any concerns I might have. She is also very passionate about what she does and her role as a doula. I recommend her to anyone I know that is expecting, and hope that when the time comes for us to have another, she will be my doula again

The birth of my second child was incredibly different than my first child, in a positive way. Looking back now, I can attribute much of that change to having Erin with us - I recommend her highly.

From the moment we met Erin, she was a knowledgeable, supportive asset for us. She met with us several times to help us through my pregnancy. She kept the communication lines open and helped us to articulate our desires into a birth plan.

Erin contributed a solid, supportive presence during labor and delivery which was exactly what we wanted. She kept my husband calm and focused, which enabled him to support me. I didn't have to worry about anything other than myself and my baby, since I knew she had our back. When labor didn't go as we had planned, she supported our decision to change course and helped us make it happen.

After working with Erin, I am a true believer in the importance of a doula. If we were to have another baby, we would absolutely ask her to join us again. Hiring a doula is an investment, but for us, the positive emotional payout was well worth it.

Erin was awesome she was there all throughout the long labor and was always positive, helpful and informative.  She was also great throughout the pregnancy about educating us and answering any questions.  I would highly recommend her!

Erin was an answer to prayer. She helped me through my fifth delivery. It was the best delivery of the 5 because she was there with me. My husband was deployed and family didn't make it in time to be with me while I labored. She comforted me and gently coached me through my pain. She was in tune with what I needed and helped me seriously improve upon a process I thought I had down pat!  If you're looking for a very kind woman to listen to your every need, care, and concern, follow through with your wishes while helping you have the best labor and delivery possible, go with Erin!
