To all new parents in need of a hand,

I would absolutely recommend Isa Woodyard as a post partum doula. I had unexpected birth complications, and came home from the hospital with physical limitations, in addition to all the standard first-time mom stresses. Isa was a termendous help for our family; her guidance and support helped us maneuver a challenging transition. With Isa’s help, our baby is currently thriving and I am recovering.

If you’re looking for a calm and caring presence to help soothe, organize and nurture a new family, hire Isa. She particularly excels at anticipating what a new baby and mother will need.

To Whom It May Concern,

We would absolutely recommend Isa Woodyard as a post partum doula. We found her to be very caring to our daughter, kind, calming, helpful and flexible.

As first time parents, we had no idea how chaotic it is to go from the hospital to home. Neither of us had cared for/spent a lot of time around a newborn before our daughter arrived. We were supposed to be induced and then our baby decided to show up two days before her due date. Isa was kind enough to come over with short notice on a Saturday afternoon (not a normal work day for her) to help us get settled. We will never, ever forget this as we were overwhelmed when we got home.

Isa was great about seeing what we needed help with- both of us are bad about asking for help. She was with us from our first day home until our baby reached one month of age in the fall of 2017. She always showed up on time, was eager to get started when she arrived and great about listening to both of us. We had four doulas (night/day with split scheduling) and Isa was by far the most organized of them. Specifically, she helped us begin our baby log which has been invaluable to us.

You and your baby will be in great hands with Isa!

We hired Isa as a daytime doula to help us during weekdays for abit over a month. Isa has the most amazingly calm and collected personality I have ever encountered and always made me feel at ease. She took fantastic care of our son, who is now almost 10 weeks old. She was punctual, organized, and very attentive. Isa was a great resource to me and my husband throughout the early stages. Our dogs loved her too ! We would definitely hire Isa again and recommend her to anyone looking for a great postpartum doula.
