I truly don't think i would have survived the first month and a half without Andrea!! I am a single mom of twins and could not have imagined all of the things i wouldn't know walking out of the hospital after giving birth to these boys.  I was a fish out of water and Andrea came in like family and guided me, helped nurture me, loved my boys so hard, and brought some sense of calm to all the chaos. She is and will always be family to us, and I don't think i could have survived without her.  The love that she gives, the incredible guidance with all the things i was in over my head on - breast feeding, latching, tongue-tie issues, tricks for double feeding, nuitrition guidance when the boys had gut issues, helping me figure out all the changing ounces to give and routines to create....The list goes on but Andrea is beyond incredible, passionate, loving, professional, and above and beyond for all the trouble-shooting i needed without having a partner to throw ideas around with on and off the clock.  We love her so much and I hope everyone gets the incredible opportunity that we had - it made my birth story and the rhythm of becoming a sane and confident parent happen. ;-)

Andrea was such a great support when we had our twins. She made herself available to us before their birth to meet, answer all our questions and provide useful advice for the end of my pregnancy, our baby gear, and for the first few days at the hospital. Once home with the babies, she became a great parent coach. She took excellent care of our babies and house logistics (laundry, dishes) to give us some precious sleep. The most value she gave us was to help us establish a good routing for feedings and sleep, but she was also attentive to the babies and guided us through baby 101 topics such as gas, comfort, hunger, tongue ties, the witching hour, swaddling techniques, and even helped us setting their room "efficiently". I learned so much through our night conversations while I was pumping, and definitely believe she gave us the best head start to parenting.

Andrea was our birth and night doula for both of our daughters. She is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Andrea helped us for over a month with each of our daughter's, which was the best decision we made.

We had a wonderful experience with Andrea. She was always careful and alerting us to any issues to discuss with our pediatrician. She advised us on lactation, formula benefits, gut health, sleep routines etc  it was everything to us to have someone who adores our son and helped us brand new parents navigate his first few months. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs the help with their newborn. As an added thought, I also want to mention how wonderful it was that she was extra careful during this whole COVID debacle. A more honest, kind and thoughtful person you would be hard pressed to find

We have worked with Andrea for 3 1/2 years ever since my preemie twin boys were born. She worked overnights with us twice a week as well as additional full day stays as needed. she educated me on everything from sleep training to breast-feeding to feeding the boys solid and tips when the boys got sick. she is amazing!! She is the most caring, warm, and gentle woman I have ever worked with. And my boys absolutely adore her. I can't say enough good things about her!

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.
