Nadiah

I’m so thankful that we had Rhiannon at my birth! She was absolutely essential. I had a homebirth with a birth pool and ended up experiencing back labor. It was so difficult and I don’t think I would’ve made it through transition without her kind words of support and the counter pressure she provided at each contraction for SO long. I’m sure her arms were toast after helping me but it was such a wonderful experience. She was a wonderful resource and guide, but never pushy or demanding. I love that she never told me what to do, but just provided assistance and let me lead the way.  She never made me feel like a burden for asking for help. She brought me water, snacks. And didn’t leave until about 3 hours after my son was born. I already told my husband I wouldn’t want to have another birth without her!!

I would recommend her 10/10! You won’t regret having Rhiannon there for your birth.

Rhiannon is a very diligent and learned doula, happy to help and right there when you need her. She has a fun and kind personality and truly cares about the desires of her clients. she works hard as a doula, serving God to care for the women and little ones he loves so dearly. Time spent with her is truley an ordained appointment to know that God is working through this woman to make sure all is taken care of and that whats needed is fullfilled. She was present and responsive all throughout my labor, never missing a beat. So wonderful to have around, it was almost like she was family.
