Melissa C. Pennuto

I am ever so thankful for Stephanie and her work as a doula during my birth experience. I hired Stephanie because I wanted to finally reach my goal of a natural, pain—med free birth. I also hired her because, let’s face it, men don’t Know what birth is like, and certainly not trained to know where to apply pressure to relieve birth pains. Stephanie was a wealth of knowledge and a great comfort during my especially traumatic birth (special Thanks goes to my son for not wanting to cooperate in any sense of the word). I ended up in labor with my husband horribly sick with pneumonia, so the extra support was amazing.  When I was ready to give up, Stephanie was right there to assure me I could do it. My little dude got stuck (not once, but twice) and was sideways the entire way down the birth canal, and I was able to have a 100% natural labor. I could not have done any of this without her!

Well to simply put it Stephanie is an amazing Doula !  This was my second baby and I was preparing for a vbac. So I knew I would need alot of support to try and  reach my goal of a natural delivery . She was knowledgeable, positive and beyond supportive . The end of pregnancy can be draining and mentally difficult on any mother- to -be  but she helped me stay level headed during the many , many long nights of prodromal labor. When labor finally started she was just a phone call away ! She was the voice of reason , quiet shoulder to lean on and a perfectly timed moment of comedic relief that was very much needed . Her skill as a Doula is one to be wanted by any expectant mother or couple ( she was an amazing help to my husband as well ! ) I got my vbac and welcomed a beautiful baby boy and I am so grateful she was there with me !

I hired Stephanie to be my doula at 36 weeks. I interviewed a doula before her, but went with Stephanie because I felt a lot more comfortable with her. She was amazing. She was quick to respond and meet with me. She was thorough with me in figuring out my birth plan. This was my third pregnancy, but first time doing a natural birth. I definitely could not have done it without her. She was an amazing support pre-pregnancy, where she'd respond to my texts/calls promptly; and the night I went into labor she was by my side right away. I had a lot of back labor and Stephanie was amazing at helping me find comfortable positions and massaging my back. Stephanie was always available to me for post-partum support. She provided me with any resources I needed for breastfeeding, etc. I am so thankful to have found her and will recommend her to anyone!

In short, Stephanie is an amazing doula! She's passionate about her work and brings such a calming presence to the table. I absolutely love that she offers unique Hypnobabies integrated Hypno-doula support! Such a great option for mother's who are looking for a little more than traditional doula support. Her knowledge of labor support is quite impressive. I highly recommend her!

Stephanie is an amazing doula! Both my husband and I can testify to Stephanie’s knowledge and abilities. With this being our first pregnancy we wanted to ensure we had a great experience and encouraging coach to help us throughout the process. We were utilizing the Hipnobabies course that Stephanie had ample knowledge about and was able to answer any questions or concerns we had. With our vision of having an all-natural birth Stephanie was there every step of the way to help answer questions and concerns we had. She educated us on what to expect and on what will help the overall process. Throughout the delivery Stephanie was very professional and nurturing, she consistently knew my wishes and had great suggestions that were always in my best interest. Overall Stephanie helped us achieve our all-natural birth just as we wanted. We recommend her to anyone, Thank you so much Stephanie!!

Stephanie was an integral part of my birth team! She was there for me every step of the way! She attended my final birthing class and  also did a mock labor to practice laboring positions. She was also terrific at keeping an open line of communication. I texted her easily 30 times in the final weeks! She's always got back to me immediately and offered encouragement and advice. Stephanie served as a  support system and advocate during my birthing time. She helped me maintain focus and confidence to achieve the natural birth that I planned. She even captured some priceless photos along the way! I cannot put into words how truly invaluable Stephanie was to me and my husband as we welcomed our sweet boy into the World! After the birth she assisted in achieving baby's first latch and stayed to ensure a comfortable transition to Mother-Baby. After bringing baby home, she paid us an in-home visit. She brought us dinner, helped with the baby and our older child, and allowed me time to get some things done around the house! Stephanie was incredible to work with!
