I was so blessed to have Mindy with me during my pregnancy and labor! She was truly an angel in time of need. I was pregnant with twins, and in need of encouragement and support. She was there for me whenever I needed prayer or had questions. It was so nice to talk to someone who was familiar with everything about pregnancy! I was especially thankful for the birth plan that she wrote up for me to have at the hospital. She is very knowledgeable about customary hospital procedures, and which ones are risky to the mom and baby. Having the birth plan reassured me that the hospital staff would be aware of my wishes to not vaccinate, etc. She also helped me find a pediatrician for my babies, who is agreeable to us more “natural minded” folks! I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of support for their birth!

Mindy was absolutely wonderful throughout our pregnancy and amazing during delivery! She was super helpful with information during the pregnancy! As a first time mom I had a few instances where I got worried wether things were normal or not! She was amazing at the birth, very encouraging and if it were not for her insisting that we go to the hospital when we did we would have had our little man at home! She made these awsome energy bites that were amazing! She is a super amazing person and brings so much joy to every room she is in! 

I am super proud and happy to say we got the 100% natural unmedicated birth we hoped for and we could not have done it without Mindy's knowledge and encouragment! Wewill be forever grateful and blessed for having Mindy as our doula!

Mindy was such a blessing at my daughters birth. When I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted to have a natural birth. My husband and I decided that a hospital birth with a doula would fit best with us at the time. We interviewed Mindy and just knew right away that she was the Doula for us. Mindy brings such peace to every room she enters which was exactly what I wanted at my birth. I had a very quick labor and am so glad Mindy was there to help me through each stage. I eneded up with my unmedicated hospital birth and was so happy with my whole birth experience! Mindy was so encouraging and supportive. She also was very helpful during my whole pregnancy when I had questions! Mindy was just perfect for my husband and I and we are so glad she shared in our birth experience!

My experience with Mindy was wonderful. She stayed a pillar of strength for my mom, my husband and myself, throughout my extremely long labor. She was calm and confident in every way. Whether it was with keeping me hydrated, handling interaction with the doctor and nurses or keeping me focused, she knew exactly what I needed and wanted.

Being that I wanted a natural childbirth, Mindy was a great choice. She has been through a natural child birth with her own children, and was able to relate to my feelings, my pain and the outcome I wanted. 

If my husband and I ever have another child, Mindy will be our doula again.

Oh my where do I start! After years of trying and multiple miscarriages this pregnancy was a very high risk and delicate one. After reaching 20 weeks into the pregnancy we were hopeful that this pregnancy was definitely going to be a success! Mindy and I have gone to the same church for many years and I knew that she had the proper education and a lot to do with pregnancy and birth but I didn't exactly know what role she played. After a conversation one Sunday morning and discovering that she was a doula I felt like I hit the jackpot! She was exactly what I needed, not only prayer wise but knowledge and preparation wise! See I was already a mother to a 14 year old teenage boy but I felt like it was the first time I was going through this. Mindy answered every question I had and was there to help me with anything I needed. She brought grace, peace, love, patience, tranquility, laughter, and prayer into my family through this very special time in our lives. Mindy was there for the c section of our beautiful little girl and even gave us the honor of giving her first bath! She made everything so special from the atmosphere of my room to special treats for myself, hubby, teenage son and even the nursing staff! We have such a special place in our heart and family for Mindy. Even after the pregnancy and birth she is still a blessing to us and there whenever we need her. From prayer to calls in the middle of the night, she is not only an amazing Doula but a wonderful friend and now part of our family! Any woman would be blessed to have her help with their beautiful journey through pregnancy and child birth.
