Renee Padilla

Wonderful! I had a very very long labor and Erin supported me and my husband the whole time. Even when it required her to watch cat videos on YouTube to entertain our two year old : ) If we have another baby she's my first phone call.

Erin was amazing! She was always easy to get ahol of in the weeks and days leading up to my EDD. She came to the hospital tour with my husband and me. When I had to be induced, we had to change my birth plan and she had plenty of alternate ideas to do during labor. She got my husband involved and showed him how to help me during labor. When i was ready to give up and wanted drugs, she tried everything to talk me out of it. She stayed with us for a while after baby was born, and has checked on me several times since having my baby! She is totally amazing!! I would love to have her as my Doula with out next baby!!

I contacted Erin in the eighth month of my pregnancy, as part of interviewing multiple local doulas. As a single mom pursuing a home birth, I had a wonderful circle of friends and had arranged a thorough network of care, but wanted someone to provide specifically focused support through those last physically challenging weeks of pregnancy, the extraordinary experience of giving birth, and the unpredictable challenges of postpartum care. More specifically, I wanted someone whose focus was this support, who would not be overhwelmed the way a friend or partner might be, and who I would not be worried about.

I knew Erin was a fit in our first conversation, and found that she provided the final missing piece, both professionally and comprehensively covering such needs as emotional encouragement, some information provision, birthing class attendance, food and supply runs, stunning photography, and new mom support. Her presence during the birth was so focused and valuable that I didn't feel the need to bring friends in, and was able to have the simple, private, at-home experience I had imagined. Looking back, even this early on, I feel immense gratitude, and can't imagine this experience without her.
