Brit Sussman

I used Mandi Garvey as a doula with my first birth in 2014. She was very responsive and informative in all correspondence. She always was able to give information on the choices I had to make in my pregnancy. She was very clear to provide information on both sides of every decision and made it much less stressful  my day to day life. I valued her opinions and her knowledge. 

During labor Mandi was by my side for all 36 hours. She was so calming to have in the room and knew tricks I would have never considered to make me more comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. I made it the entire 36 hours without any pain meds and I believe this is in large part to Mandi's experience. 

A the birth of my son, Mandi was still there to help me with breastfeeding  making sure that I was being taken care of while everyone was very excited over the new baby. She was also very responsive with questions I had during  post partum period. 


I couldn't recommend Mandi enough to someone who is considering a natural birth, or who is experiencing their first birth.
