Having Audra there at the birth of my daughter was in valuable. She was a constant study presents knowing went to help Anne went to give me space to breathe through it. She was steady confident and gentle and graceful at the same time. I appreciated her helping me get into different positions to help progress labor and also the support she gave my husband. He was nervous about having a homebirth and her presence called him just as much if not more than it calmed me. I highly recommend her as a Doula.

I sought support for my pregnancy and necessary birth partner to help me through this important life event, given that the other parent wasn’t involved. For such a special occasion I had to find the perfect fit. With research and interviews, Audra was just that “perfect.” Audra’s calm and assuring demeanor, vast experience and advocacy guided my birthing experience wonderfully.

I wanted to attempt a VBAC. The process of birthing in a hospital is always intrusive. I needed Audra’s support to advocate for less invasive hospital staff monitoring in order to achieve as much of natural childbirth as possible.

After three children I’ve learned that having a Doula in any setting whether a hospital or home is extremely beneficial to the mother, family members and newborn. I benefitted from Audra’s support as she provided options, suggestions and implemented solutions to make my birthing experience less overwhelming. Audra focused on my needs and those of my family members as well. That which I was most grateful for was her personal care to my oldest son. In addition, as a personal touch, Audra created a beautiful memory art piece as a gift.

Audra provided postpartum care visits were extremely welcome at which she assisted in breastfeeding, providing and teaching me infant massage. 

I highly recommend Audra, she works as your Doula yet leaves as a trusted friend.

When I was pregnant with my first child, I felt a lot of anxiety about giving birth. Audra was there for me 100%, a warm supportive knowledgeable rock that I could lean on before during and after the birth process.  Her training in physical medicine, both massage therapy and craniosacral therapy, gives her an intuitive sense of how to help women find physical comfort during labor and ease distress.  As a physician I always recommend that my patients get a Doula, and often refer patients to Audra knowing that they will receive the highest level of care from her.

Audra is an absolute gem, and a perfect postpartum doula. I'm sure she'd be great as a birth doula as well, but we only worked with her postpartum.

She is a great communicator and listener, which I think is the most important quality for a postpartum doula to have. She was also great with our 3-5 week old son, he calmed down as she held him and we felt totally secure with her caring for him. She gave some good suggestions on caring for him/ourselves but was sensitive and not intrusive at all.

She's also flexible to help with whatever needs done around the house - I was shocked at how much she got done during the day. Our floors were cleaner than they had been in a year! Her energy is very calm+loving and she helped my wife and I get some much-needed rest. 

Finally, she helped us with meal prep and is a gifted chef - yummy nutrituous food! We were tired and didn't know what to ask her to cook, she came up with great ideas and made delicious meals that fed us through the coming week.

You already know this if you're looking for a doula, but to remind you - this is a precious time in you and your baby's life. Working with a doula can help you relax and refocus on what matters. It's an investment, but for Audra especially - it's a fantastic and smart investment in your family's well-being.
