Erica is such a beautiful person inside and out. Shortly after I had my son, I made the decision to hire a doula to help me with him at nights so I could rest. I was in a vulnerable place as my husband was deployed at that time. I remember talking to Erica over the phone, she was so kind and helped me feel comfortable with the process. The first night she started, I opened the door and I just remember feeling a sense of calmness throughout my body. I knew she would take great care of my baby boy and that she did. She would go out of her way to help me, always offer helpful suggestions, cook, clean up and assist me with meal preparation. I will forever be grateful for Erica and I will never forget all the amazing things she’s done for me and my little boy.

Erica was incredible. I had originally hired another doula team, and prepped my whole pregnancy to have them at the birth of my little one. Then when I went into labor they were attending another birth. So they sent a backup doula. I was scared out of my mind because this was NOT what I had planned. So I go to the birth center, and I meet our backup doula, for the first time as I am in labor. That backup doula was Erica. Let me tell you. I truly believe it was meant to be that way. She was amazing. She eased my fears, she coached me, she helped my husband with anything he needed so that he could support me. It takes a very special person to meet a momma for the first time while she is in labor and instantly make her feel comfortable. I am so thankful for Erica. I don't think I could've accomplished the birth that I wanted without her. The birth of my first baby was traumatic and I desperately needed my second birth to be healing and because of Erica, it was. I simply can't recommend her enough. If you're thinking about hiring her, DO IT. You will not regret it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Erica in August. Since then, she has supported three of my postpartum doula clients from whom I have received outstanding feedback! She has a very calm demeanor, is naturally empathetic, and a true resource to new parents. She has a wealth of knowledge in a variety of topics to help equip new parents and get them off to a strong start (breastfeeding, babywearing, attachment parenting, holistic cokking, etc). She always goes the extra mile in everything she does!

Thank goodness we found Erica!  We did not utllize a doula for our first birth, and frankly it ended up being a very stressful experience.  With our second and most recent birth, we connected with Erica through Doula match and immediately began to feel at ease.  She was extremely accomodating to our schedule and immediately made time to meet with us to review our birth plan together and begin to understand our needs and expectations.  She had a calm and confident nature to her, and assured us that she would be with through every step of the process....and she delivered!

It was such a relief to have her with us throughout the labor and birthing process....she was always, calm, reassuring, friendly, and extremely helpful.  She was truly invested in us having the best experience possible.  She was always available to get water, snacks, and had many helpful strategies to get us through labor and through the birthing process.

In short, we thoroughly appreciated everything that she did for us, and would highly recommend her!

I am really happy with Erica's help. She was my labor doula as well as postpartum doula.

We met twice before the big day (night actually) to get to know each other and to discuss different options when the labor starts.

Erica is very tactful, supportive, open for ideas and professional in what she is doing. Always responsive, day and night, for any questions, worries, or doubts. 

Even though we did not have many chances to use it, I loved her bag full of magic stuff that would help you through tough moments.

Erica looked after my son when I needed to take a nap, helped me with light house chores and gave me lots of useful advices (I'm a new mom). 

In all labor mess and excitement it was Erica's voice I heard when my baby was just about to enter this world "breath in.... and out".

Thank you for this, supermom!
