Lia McGuire was a fantastic doula, she was attentive, personable and very knowledgeable. I really liked how she was so easy to talk to and be around. My hospital experience was so much better because Lia was there. i was supposed to have a baby at a birth center but was transfered unexpectedly...Lia helped me understand the new birth plan and kept me updated, as well as comfortable since I hate hospitals. In the end Lia knew that I was not doing well and when I had to get a c-section she explained everything and eased my fears. After my c-section Lia was there to help me if I needed it and came to my house twice to catch-up and help me if I needed it. 

I would highly reccommend Lia as a doula and if I was having a kid again I would use her again.

I couldn't have been happier with how my birth went with Lia. She was constantly available to me from the start of my induction to even now. I really wanted someone I felt comfortable with there at the birth of my sweet rainbow baby, and Lia knew the struggles I went through to get my sweet one. Because of that, she was even emotionally invested in the birth of my child. And that was magical. My birth went so calmly and peacefully because of her presence there to assist me and my husband. She took the most beautiful pictures of my birth, to capture the exact moment my wonderful gift came into this world. I highly recommend her services. You won't he disappointed ??

Finding Lia was like a gift from God. As a single mom-to-be I knew I wanted and needed the support of a doula but the task of finding the right one was daunting. I spoke to a number of different people, all with varying levels of knowledge and experience and what I was really looking for was someone with whom I felt a real connection. The acts of laboring and giving birth would mean I would be in need and vulnerable and require someone who allowed me to feel safe, comfortable, confident, supported and encouraged. It was like inviting in a friend or family member to the most intimate and important moments of my life. Lia was the perfect choice. Her calming energy, loving soul and empathic spirit guided me, and helped to create the circumstances I was seeking. When we first met, I could tell instantly that she was extremely caring and would be easy to ask for the help I knew I would need (And help I had no idea I would need!) She was amazing with my parents as well. Her enthusiasm for the birth of my baby, as well as her obvious love of babies, and all things doula, provides the invaluable support to me. She brought essential oils, got to know me, massaged my hands and legs (I got carpal tunnel in both hands which were excruciating during 31 hours of labor), and made beautiful inspirational quotes to remind me of all of the things about my baby which were bringing me the greasiest joy, among other things. She is certified in rebozo massage too. You couldn't make a better choice than Lia. She is all heart and a pleasure to know and someone absolutely worth including in life's greatest moment. I highly reccomend her.
