Noreen was amazing from start through finish. From prenatal, to labor, to postpartum, she was there every step of the way. She played a major part in making my birthing experience perfect and was a huge asset. She is very knowledgeable, extremely attentive, and all around amazing! I would recommend her to anyone interested in having a doula for their next pregnancy!

Noreen was absolutely amazing. She had all these tricks to help easy the pain whether it was my back or my hips. Having Noreen at my home birth was the best decision we made. It was like having my mother or my sister by my side. She was patient and creating calming vibe. Every time she left the room to use the bathroom I felt miserable until she returned. She listened to my needs and wants and carried out my wishes. I would definitely use her again.

Noreen and I met when I was around 32 weeks pregnant after my friend had given me her name because they knew each other. I was planning an all natural birth, and wanted a doula for support since I had been induced for medical reasons on my first pregnancy. I loved the days that Noreen and I had prenatals! She was fun and easy to talk to and went through my wants and needs every time to make sure I got the experience I wanted. When the time came, I was 40 weeks and ended up being induced for medical reasons again. I was originally bummed because I wasn't getting the birth I had planned, but quickly got over it with the support Noreen gave me. She was great at being hands off, as that was how I wanted her to be while I labored, but still kept me focused and centered for as long as I could. Noreen is all about women feeling empowered no matter how they deliver, and she made me feel just that way. She helped my birth be healing after having a traumatic first one.
