Beth was AMAZING!  Without her I would not have been able to achieve my non medicated birth!  She coached me along the way, reassured me, listened to my birth desires, helped me create my birth plan and so much more.  She never once tried to push her ideal birth on me.  She completely let me lead the way and provided lots of educational information on various subjects.  She was always available for any questions and was so supportive.  She was definitely a perfect fit and I wish I would have had her for my first birth.

This review is four months overdue (because life with a newborn is a little hectic)! However, when we decide to have a second baby Beth is on our speed dial!


Beth is an amazing, compassionate, and empathic doula! As a first time mom I wanted to have a coach to help my husband and I through natural labor. Beth was helpful in educating us in what to expect in the weeks leading up to the birth, the childbirth process itself, and in postpartum recovery. She was so encouraging when my daughter decided to come a full week late. When the big day finally came Beth was professional and nurturing throughout the labor and delivery.


Even with some minor changes to my birth plan, I always felt in control and empowered because of Beth’s coaching. A med-free birth is the hardest, most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life. I’m so glad Beth was a part of our birth story!

Beth tended the birth of my daughter in early April 2017. To just say that she is wonderful is an understatement. As a first time mom, the onset of labor was hard to determine, but without hesitation, she came each time I thought it was time. She helped through the whole labor and delivery process. She helped my husband be more hands on that he would have been able to be on his own. Without her comfort techniques, I don't know that I would have been able to do it. I will never go through labor and delivery without a doula... preferably her, if we still live in the area.

Beth is an amazing soul. She is the epitomy of calmness and has a very strong presence about her. I felt very comfortable talking with her immediately. I felt she was very knowledgeable about birth, as she has her own births under her belt. I would like to recommend her highly!

Beth could not have been more valuable during my birth experience. She is very calm and reassuring and knew just what to do to help me and my spouse. I gave birth in a hospital and she worked hand in hand with the doctors and nurses to provide the birth experience we had talked about. She was readily available in the weeks leading up to my birth and was very supportive. She supported our decisions and also walked us through any questions or concerns we had. I would recommend her to everyone I know!
