I will stay with you continuously from labor until after the delivery and help you establish breastfeeding if that is the plan.

I had the pleasure of having Courtney for my doula. This was my first baby and I was nervous. I had interviewed a few and Courtney stood out as being so caring and loving and never rushing my questions. My water broke unexpectedly the very next day and I texted Courtney and she showed up to the hospital quickly. She stayed by my side with my husband and helped me through the birth. She was there all night as I was in labor and She even stayed with us at the hospital after. She ran out to get items we needed and was more like a family member than one of my family members! I was so grateful to have her by my side supporting my birth plan. When we came home, Courtney checked on us and answered questions we had as new parents. She put my worried mind at ease and even helped get items we needed for home. 

I 100% would have Courtney as my doula again and recommend her highly. Her rates were also reasonable unlike many others, too! She took photos of us and captured beautiful Moments including the moment I saw my baby. I am grateful she helped bring my son into this world. She will always have a place in our hearts for being part of such a life changing experience!

Courtney is not only the best Doula ever but soneone you want in your corner when facing the most invigorating and life-changing experience you may possibly ever have. Shie kind, competent, and not afraid to protect your interests when the establishment at times tries to impress upon you their own beliefs and fear tactics. She will fight, protect, and guide you through a process that often overwhelms even the most experienced parent-to-be. Our sweet Eleanor is a gift every day and would not have been possible without the professionalism and caring expertise Courtney embodied throughout the pregnancy, birth, and post-birth. We are eternally grateful and blessed to have this genuine and amazing woman in our lives. Thank you, Courtney, from the bottom of our hearts as nothing will fully express our undying love and appreciation for all you do.

Much love, The Smith Family
