Di Niu

I would highly recommend this very professional service for placenta processing and encapsulation. She brought her own tools to make everything at our home. Everything was handled nicely with all the necessary steps taken to ensure absolute cleanness. Cling wraps were used everywhere so there was literally zero spill anywhere. The capsules, tincture, and blood cord sample made were really neat. Those pills look like those you can get from the pharmacy, but with your placenta in them. My wife had them and recovered quickly after labour. She felt much better taking those pills. The tincture is some infused liquor that would last longer.

What's more, she really cared for clients from her heart, and also gave us a bunch of very helpful advice for breastfeeding and postpartum care afterwards. Very responsive on email or cell phone. I would highly recommend this service!

Thank you so much April!

We would not hesitate to recommend April as a doula. She is amazing! We came home with our newborn son and he wasn't sleeping. We were beside ourselves as new parents. After two nights we contacted April. She not only was able to get our newborn to sleep, she also taught us tons of tips and tricks to keep him contented and healthy. We are SOOOO grateful to April for her amazing help during that first week. We felt that we were in excellent hands, and thus felt that we were able to enjoy our newborn, rather than constantly worry. April is truly a baby whisperer. She is experienced, thoughtful, and kind. We enjoyed having her in our home, and more importantly, she was indispensable as a guide to newborn care.

April is a very caring and knowledgeable person. She provided our family with the support and care we needed after the birth of our first child. I am so glad I contacted April and highly recommend her for your own family.
