Tiffany Ash

Andrea was a lifesaver. She worked for our family for approximately 5 months and I don't know how I would have survived without her. My son has milk/digestive issues, the pediatricians did not have specific guidance and Andrea knew exactly what to try/do in order to help him. During the time she was with our family, he went from eating literally every 2 hours to sleeping through the night. As a single mom working outside the home, I would not have been able to invest every night in sleep training (it took at least 2 focused months for him) and still been coherent at work and home, if it weren't for Andrea. She became a member of our family and I looked forward to every night that she would be here. She's extremely organized, reliable and resourceful. She didn't just watch my son during the night while I slept. She also helped both of us get to the next level of sanity, working through eating and sleeping issues. My toddler daughter loved Andrea too and, although most nights did not get a chance to see her, my daughter would ask about Andrea frequently. Andrea is an experienced and loving doula and our family is so blessed to have had her in our home.

Andrea has been a part of our life since literally the birth of our daughter, almost 4 years ago.  She has been amazing to our family and I feel like we would have had a very hard time without her.  We intially hired her for a few days a week for 3 months to be a night doula, but quickly we discovered, we should have her every night.  She was amazing with our daughter and knows all sorts of remedies and tricks to help babies sleep.  It was like having a baby whisperer in our home.  Our daughter was sleeping through the night, well before the average.  When it was time to go back to work, we couldn't say goodbye and hired her to be a full-time nanny to our daugher.  While we only see Andrea 1 day a week now since our daughter is in school, she has become family and we continue to utilize all of the tips and tricks she has, even for toddlers!  The knowledge keeps coming.  I would highly recommend her to anyone bringing a baby home for the first time, it is money well spent.

Andrea is amazing!  She is knowledgeable and caring in both baby care and post partum for mom.  Having her as my post partum doula changed our lives permanently for the better!  We are so grateful for her.

If I could give a rating on a scale of 1-10, I would give Andrea 100. Simply put, she is the best. Her knowledge, caring, confidence, and efficiency cannot be beat, and we learned a tremendous amount from Andrea about how to care for our preemie newborns! They connected with her immediately, we connected with her immediately, and she helped us through some very powerful transition times with a steady hand, and masterful expertise! 

I had to have a follow-up surgery after the babies were born, and once again, it was Andrea to the rescue, to not only care for our babies, but me as well!

I cannot emphasize enough how grateful we were to have found Andrea, and how much she enriched our lives while she was with us! Every chance I have, I give people a referral, because, as I said before, simply put, she is the best.
