Client Testimonials for Ciara Richardson

Post a testimonial for Ciara Richardson



We are so grateful that we had Ciara as our doula and would highly recommend her. I gave birth during the Coronavirus outbreak, so the intense experience of delivering a baby felt more overwhelming because I was only allowed to have her and my husband with me in hospital.

From when we first met her, Ciara was calming, welcoming, and empathetic. Once the hospitals started increasing their restrictions, Ciara was on top of things and would check in on me to see how I was doing in the weeks leading up to delivery.

During labor and delivery, Ciara had a great intuiton about what we needed. When my husband was unsure about how to help, she coached him on what he could do. When I was struggling, she encouraged me in a caring, but firm way. In additon to that, she took beautiful photos of the delivery and our baby that we could share with family who weren't allowed to visit us in the hospital.

After our baby was born, Ciara checked in with us multiple times. When we had some questions about baby's fussiness, she was a wealth of knowledge. She was so helpful to have throughout the whole process (and my husband says "I don't know what we would have done without her.") I would strongly recommend Ciara to any mother looking for that extra support!

Ciara was the best money I’ve ever spent. From the time we hired her, she was extremely helpful. She provided resources when I had a complication around 20 weeks that made the system easier to navigate. She made me feel confident and prepared for the birth and was invaluable during my labor, which lasted two days. I honestly don't know if I could have done it without her. I would recommend her highly to anyone that is pregnant.



Ciara was our doula and no words can describe just how much her presence meant to us and helped during the birth of our first child. We weren’t sure about having a doula and let me tell anyone trying to decide, DEFINITELY have a doula and preferably Ciara!! She was so important to my feeling safe, reassured, and taken care of during labor and also keeping my husband’s worries about me at bay. Her ability to hold a quiet space for you is incredible. She was so steady and calm. A true comfort and source of strength for me. We both love Ciara and are so grateful she was part of the birth.
