Luisa was an excellent resource and she really kept me on top of things. My husband and I regret not calling her to the hospital earlier, but once she got there she made us feel calmer. She helped me focus and helped my husband feel more involved in the birth of our baby girl She exudes confidence and calming vibes. Luisa, was the perfect doula for our family.

She was so helpful and accommodating. My husband and I needed some extra support because we have a 2 year old son with cerebral palsy. She was always ready and available to answer any questions I had along the way. She went above and beyond in every way. For example, she came to our hospital about 45 minutes away from her and she came to our home for the follow up, which is at least an hour away. She has a warm, calming nature that helped me time and again.


Thank you, Luisa, for making my birth experience a great one!

Im so grateful for all the loving support I received from Luisa. First of all this was my first at home birthing experience and I really needed someone to help me with my birthplan. I had no idea how to go about it and I had so many questions and concerns. Luisa was more than patient and kind, I never felt rushed.I feel like I’ve learned so much about what my body can accomplish once I’m in that peaceful and tranquil state of mind. She was so helpful during the 10 hours of labor…. she helped me overcome the contractions and helped ease the pain using massages and other techniques. Her soothing nature helped put me at ease and gave me confidence that I was doing what was right for my baby and me. She went up and beyond to help me she even went with me to purchase all of the necessities for my birth and went to my midwife appointments. After the labor and delivery she stayed and helped me get comfortable and also helped me with breast feeding my son. Luisa also come over for follow up four times and she even made me these amazing lactation cookies… yum! I had so may worries because my baby wouldn’t latch on and it was painful breastfeeding but, she was always available to help! Honestly, I think every woman deserves a Doula as kind, patient and knowledgable as Luisa. I will always be grateful for her love and support throughout my journey.
