 Bria is amazing. She made us feel so comfortable from the beginning and it was such a comfort having someone you felt comfortable with watching your baby so you can get the rest you need.  



Bri was with us for a few nights with my 8 week old. He was in a peak fussy phase, his bad night sleep had gotten worse, and he was up every hour trying to eat. My husband and I were exhausted and needed a reset. 
Bri was supportive, she provided tips, but she never judged. She took time to get to know our baby and gave us ideas to improve the situation. She was calm and helped us and the baby reset. After three nights with Bri, our baby was eating 1-2 times per night (rather than hourly) and he even slept for a full five hour stretch. I am incredibly appreciative of Bri and my only regret is that we didn't call her sooner!

From the moment Bri stepped in the front door, her calming demeanor was felt. We were connected with Bri as our scheduled doula was not yet available - Bri came for one night to help with our 5 day old son - would LOVE to have her with our family more. She is very professional, kind, knowledgeable, and calm. She offered helpful insight on newborn care and just general emotional support for transitioning from one child to two. I would highly recommend Bri to other looking for newborn care.

Bria came to help my husband and I shortly after we left the hospital for close to eight weeks for nights. From the start, she was knowledgeable, dependable, and easy to get along with. More importantly, she was always on time.

Throughout the night, we felt our daughter was in good hands. She woke up promptly to tend to her every need. She also took care of other tasks such as bottle cleaning, cleaning pump parts/ bringing baby to be nursed as needed. 

Bria also carries expertise as a postpartum doula. As a mother of three boys, She provided helpful advice, especially for a first time parent. From clothing tips, care tips such as burping, nursing, and many others.

I highly recommend Bria to help more families, as she’s helped ours.



Bria was a big help to our family. She was always on time, very responsive, and answered our many questions about breastfeeding, safe sleep, and gassy babies. She took good care of our newborn son. I wish we could keep her for longer!



Bri helped us during the first month of our baby girls life. Bri is caring, sweet and helpful. She sheparded me into motherhood and gave me the confidence to do it on my own by the time she left. I appreciated how she would let me handle my baby on my own but knew exactly when to offer help if she saw me struggling. Bri has an extremely gentle demeanor. I would recommend her a million times over. We will always remember how much Bri helped us during the most memorable time in our lives.

Bri stayed with my family for a week of overnight shifts. As first-time parents, my husband and I were looking for someone knowledgable to ease the anxiety of the learning curve of parenting for the first time. We did book her several months in advance, which is recommended because she is very sought after! If you're thinking about hiring a doula, do so several months in advance. After matching with her through Hush Little Baby, we set up an interview. We quickly learned that Bri is down to earth and easy going. She is generous with her knowledge regarding anything child rearing and has great advice. She was punctual every day she worked with us and stayed her whole shift even though I told her she could leave a few minutes early one night. Overall I would recommend Bri as a doula especially if you're looking to ease the anxiety around bringing home a newborn.

Bri was an absolute blessing. She's a baby whisper & gave us such peace when we passed our little one off for overnights. She's also a pro swaddler. We would recommend her to anyone. 

Lauren Christian Redfern


Bri was with us for 8 weeks after our son was born. I had a very challenging pregnancy with Hyperemisis Gravidarum and needed some extra time to recoup. The first time I talked to her on the phone I knew she was the one I wanted to care for our baby. She took the best care of our son. She is calm, nurturing, loving and will tell you like it is which I was grateful for.  Every time our son made a peep in his nursery she was right there.  She was always very conscious about being quiet and not trying to wake our 3 year old or obnoxious dogs.  I couldn't wait until 9pm every night because I knew she was coming and I could rest peacefully! I wish she could be with us longer. We are forever grateful for Bri!!!

Hiring Bri was one of the best postpartum decisions we made. As first time parents, we had no idea how to care for a newborn, and the hospital provided limited education. Bri joined us the first night home and created a calming environment out of an otherwise stressful situation. I slept peacefully the first weeks knowing I had Bri supporting as an expert with newborns.

Bri impressed us from the very beginning. She is professional, dependable, and kind. She is also skilled with newborns and educated me on how to care for my baby and understand his needs. We had Bri support us for the first 4 weeks, and I wish it could have been longer. We all loved her and appreciate the impact she had on setting us up for success. Our little boy started sleeping through the night at 7 weeks and it's in large part due to the support and education we had from Bri.

I highly recommend hiring a postpartum doula, and Bri is the best out there!

Bri was fabulous time and again helping out our family! She was responsive and flexible with our ever changing needs and was kind and considerate every time we saw her.  She treated our baby like her own and offered valuable insight for feeding and sleeping.  We are so grateful to her for helping us survive these past few months.



Bri was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was extremely helpful for those first few days after the hospital, and provided so much reassurance and helpful advice. She was excellent with communication, always on time, and gave great care to our newborn. We could not have done it without her!



Bri helped our family for five weeks as a night nanny, beginning when our daughter was seven weeks old. Over that time, she went from waking twice per night to sleeping 10-11 hours almost consistently. Bri is friendly, warm, deeply knowledgable, and dependable. She was never late (in fact, always arrived a few minutes early) and kept in excellent communication via text about our upcoming schedule. It could be intimidating and uncomfortable inviting a stranger into your home with a newborn, but Bri put us immediately at ease—she has an incredibly calming nature. Hiring a night nanny is a significant financial investment, but we don't regret this decision at all and recommend Bri wholeheartedly!

Natasha Reedy


Bri worked for my family for two months. She spent five evenings a week caring for my newborn and assisting with my toddler. Bri's professionalism, dependablity, and overall care for my baby gave me the reassurance I needed to know we made the right choice. Bri was not only knowledgeable and experienced with newborn care, but also helped me postpartum with any concerns I had regarding my body and mental health. This was my second time becoming a mother, but each experience is unique and not necessarily easy; having Bri by my side gave me the positive energy and overall support anyone could wish for those first few months. I highly recommend Bri, she is truly an exceptional individual inside and out. 



Bri was wonderful to work with and helped us immensely during our first days at home with a newborn. She is professional, very knowledgeable, and has a calm disposition. Our new baby developed some good sleeping habits under her night time care. I would absolutely recommend Bri for newborn care services!

We used Bri for the first 5 weeks after our second child was born. Multiple friends highly recommended her, and we were so fortunate she came to work with us. She's very professional and definitely aims to please. She's extremely clean and COVID cautious. I really appreciated how she changed into clean clothes when coming to our house. She prioritized our sleep while maintaining an impactful nursing schedule. Her calming demeanor is exactly what every postpartum mom needs! We are sad our time together is done, but she set us up for success on our own. We hope you enjoy Bri's help as much as we did!

Ryan Leggett


Bri helped my wife and I with our newborn daughter for about two and a half months.  With already having a 4 year old and 2 year old the extra set of hands and lets be honest a few extra hours of sleep was a godsend!  we were concerned and very careful when choosing someone that we woudl be entrusting our newborn to.  Bri from the first night put us at ease.  She was attentive, gentle, and kept us informed all while helping my wife get some much needed rest.  We are an active family and Bri did a great job communicating and responding to things quickly.  If this wsan't our last baby we woudl certainly rehire her!

Tasha Stephens


I can't say enough nice things about Brianna! Having her as my doula was the best decision I made as a first time mom. Brianna was with me the whole journey , from pre partum visits, labor and delivery and post partum. Our birth did not go as planned due to health issues, but my husband and I were grateful to have Brianna by our side during it all. Even when medical intervention was necessary Brianna remained calm and managed somehow to calm me.   She treated us with respect and compassion. I highly recommend Brianna for any mom out there. I hope to have her at all my future births!
