Telika was all I could ask for in a doula! She joined me for 11 hours of labor. She had a great balance of offering suggestions and giving space for me to do what felt right at the time. Telika is kind, patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. She encouraged and coached me through what felt like an eternity of labor. When I felt like giving up, she advised me to have my midwife check me because it seemed I was ready to push. Sure enough, it was time! She got me through the final stage and supported me in getting my healthy newborn to breastfeed immediately after birth. I couldn't have asked for a better doula!

As we prepared to give birth to our first child, we were very grateful for Telika's calming presence and knowledge. She took in our plethora of concerns and questions about childbirth and always responded quickly (sometimes within a matter of minutes via email) with options and suggestions based on our needs and her understanding of the birthing industry. Her kind spirit and years of birthing experience were an incredible reassurance throughout the journey. We highly recommend Telika's doula and lactation services and will definitely be contacting her for future births.
