Soraya and Thea were our doula/photographer team. They exceeded our expectations in many ways. My first birth was a planned csection for a breech baby, and I had a lot of anxiety about having a VBAC. Soraya listened and understood all of my concerns so well I felt like she was in my brain. She truly put herself in my shoes and helped we walk through all my feelings. During my labor she read my husband and me so well- giving us space when we needed it, and supporting us as a couple. She anticipated my needs so well. 

When I met Thea for the first time I was absolutely at ease. She is so welcoming, warm, and thoughtful. Her pictures are beautifully composed and she captured so many special and emotional moments that I adore. We were so pleased that we had Thea do newborn/family pictures as well. 

These women are absolute treasures for the birth community. I felt so supported, validated, and safe with them. I’m proud to say I had a successful VBAC! I recommend their services wholeheartedly.

My son was born in October 2017. Thea and Soraya were my doulas from the very beginning. I previously had a miscarriage and continued to carry anxiety about losing this one all the way through the pregnancy. They we’re always available if I had questions or concerns and referred me elsewhere of it was something they couldn’t address. They even made a visit to the house with coffee to talk through some of my anxieties.

Having a doula was the best experience,but being lucky enough to have Thea and Soraya as a partner team was life-saving. My birth wasn’t typical; I ended up needing a blood transfusion hours after giving birth. We didn’t know who to turn to for help and called one of our doulas. They came down and were able to take care of our son while we were dealing with my complications.

We will forever be grateful for this team. They helped me achieve my goal of an unmedicated natural birth and a healthy baby. They were my rock and worked wonderfully with my partner to support me throughout the laboring process.

I’ve known Thea for 12 or more years and could not have imagined a better person to assist me in my third birth experience. From the minute I went into labor she was available to Me for anything I needed . Her presence was very calming and helpful. She has the sweetest spirit, she is so kind and loving. Thea is definitely the type of person that you want in one of your most vulnerable moments of life. 

my experience with Boise Birth Services  was excellent and I’d recommend them to anyone!

Boise Birth Services is amazing! I never had an unanswered question throughout my pregnancy and always felt 100% supported in every situation leading to and during my delivery. This was my third birth and first time experiencing the care of a Doula-I guarantee should I be pregnant again, Boise Birth Services will be by my side again. Love!

I couldn't be more thrilled with the experience I had with Boise Birth Services. From the first phone call with Soraya to pregnancy support 24/7 with Danielle and Jennifer, to labor and delivery with Danielle, and all of my post partum services with Jennifer! The most pleasant all around experience!

Danielle is amazing. She is sweet, kind, and was very helpful during labor and delivery. We talked out any concerns I had in the moment and kept both my husband and I prepared to deal with anything that may come our way. She was able to help me refocus my efforts on breathing and birthing when I started to get tired or was in more pain. She stayed calm, kept the room lights low and assisted me in position changes that helped progress labor quite quickly! She was able to guide my husband in the best way to help me through contractions and also reminded him to take photos and video (which you will definitley appreciate after delivery!). I honestly couldn't have done it as smoothly without Danielle there to assist. 

Jennifer, is so sweet. I was able to see her several times for prenatal massages where we always discussed how I was feeling and was able to talk out any concerns. She also took charge of handling my placenta encapsulation, belly binding, and my postpartum doula shift. She was extremely thorough when santitizing the kitchen and handling the placenta and the end products looked great (and that includes my kitchen). She was very helpful and flexible on working out a time to come and show me and my husband how to do the belly binding. We have yet to do the postpartum shift (its on the schedule) and I can't imagine that it would be anyting short of fabulous considering that everything else she has done has been wonderful.

Thank you to Boise Birth Serivces, especially Danielle and Jennifer. They are highly recommended and IF I were to ever go through another pregnancy, I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again!

I loved Thea and Soraya from the first time I met them. I was pregnant with my third baby and not sure if I really needed the extra support. After meeting them I was excited to get to know them more and to have their support through pregnancy and beyond. They exceeded all expectations! I appreciate their team support approach, providing different styles and opinions. I was able to text them prior to the birth with questions and thoughts. They were always quick to respond. Thea provided incredible support at my birth. She did an excellent job offering gentle prompts and gave my husband and I appropriate space when needed. There was never an awkward feeling of having someone else in the room with us. She was truly a gift! Soraya was there for us for postpartum support. Our sweet little baby has been struggling with sleep and colic. I have been going to many specialists and trying all sorts of things to help her. Soraya has gone above and beyond by providing lots of advice as well as teaming with our PT to come up with tips on working through the difficult times. Hands down, they were the best thing I could have paid for in preparation for our little one. If you are considering their services, I would highly recommend it!

Hiring Boise Birth Services was hands down the best decision I made throughout my pregnancy and birth process. I don't even know how to put into words my appreciate and gratitude for their team throughout everything. I didn't even know what a Doula was but once I figured it out I knew we needed one! We interviewed a few but found our best match here! Soraya and Thea held an incredible, intensive and informative class one on one for my husband and I. Thea helped walk us through labor and I never want to have a child without her being there. She was able to help my husband know how to best help me and make it a team effort in bringing our sweet baby into this world. Thea did a great job encapsulating my placenta and taking some amazing photos throughout the birthing process. They all have been very helpful in answering all my questions before, during & after the birth process. Thank you all!

I went into labor 4 weeks before my due date, it was very unexpected, being my first pregnancy I had anticipated that I would deliver after 40 weeks. Because of our daughters early arrival we hadn’t had our initial appointment but Thea and Soraya were on it. They both showed up at the hospital and they sat down with my wife and I in my hospital room and we discussed what to expect, what my wishes where and eased our worries. The services that Thea and Soraya offer are amazing but what made them stand apart from other doulas that we interviewed was how friendly, easy to talk to and good listeners they both were. Getting those extra qualities along with their expertise is ultimately why we chose them as our doulas and it was well worth it. From the late night texts about questions that arose to the encouragement throughout labor and the postnatal appointment that supplied us with many tips on easing gas pains, a much needed adult conversation and a little help with dishes and bath time. We had a great experience and would highly recommend Thea and Soraya’s services to any expectant parent. Thank you ladies for your support during such an important moment in our lives.

Thea came to help us in a moment of crisis, right after the birth of our second baby. The minute she walked into our home I felt more calm and comforted than I thought possible. She took care of our little one through the night and helped me heal, with much needed sleep, comfort, and reassurance. She was professional, kind, and attentive to everyone in our family. I highly recommend her and am so grateful for her services. She is amazing!

Thea Jordan of Boise Birth Services is an angel! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a doula. This was our second birth with her and each time, I don’t know how I would have gotten through it without her. My most recent birth situation was not ideal and a little scary but as soon as Thea showed up she jumped right in; cool, calm & collected, and reassured me that I was safe and everything was ok. She held my hand and helped me relax and reminded me that I could do this. I will forever be grateful for her support in that moment. She also captured some of the most beautiful photos after the birth of my partner & I and our new addition. I won’t ever forget this very quick labor & delivery but I will always have the precious moments she captured to cherish and remind me of the beauty that came from that day.

I had the best experience during my pregnancy, throughout labor, and postpartum.  Heather was absolutely amazing and she will always hold a special place in my heart.  From our first meeting, she made me feel so comfortable and truly listened to my ideas, thoughts, and concerns.  She made multiple trips to see me, which was amazing since she lives about an hour away!  She would text and call and I always knew she was on my side.  During labor, she put on my favorite music and scents and I LOVE that my baby entered the world with The Beatles in the background.  She was so calm and I remember her taking care of my husband too during labor!  I highly recommend Heather, she's a fantastic doula and person.

I had the absolute pleasure of using Boise Birth Services over the course of several months following the birth of my daughter.  Soraya, Thea and Heather’s post partum doula services were a godsend to our famlily during a very challening transition for us. There aren’t even words to describe how incredible these women are in their ability to swoop in and provide care to both baby and mom (and the entire family, really) in the oh so delicate time right after giving birth. Truly don’t know what we would have done without them.

Boise birth services doulas helped me after the birth of my second child. They supported me by helping me run errands, entertain my older child, cook meals and even provided overnight support. They were calm, kind and caring, and my family benefitted greatly from their support.

Between Thea handling the photography and Heather providing doula support, I couldn't ask for a better birth team! I hardly noticed Thea working her camera magic and Heather was exactly what we needed. In fact, my husband was initially skeptical as to why we needed a doula this time around (6th baby and all), but afterwards he said he couldn't imagine this birth experience without her. And quite frankly, I couldn't either. Thank you, Boise Birth Services!

These women are spectacular at what they do. I'm especially convinced that my experience in labor as a first time parent and mother to a breech baby would have been much more difficult had Thea not been there supporting me. I rode through 30 plus hours of pain with her and my husband by my side, holding my hand, guiding me through contractions and reassuring me of my inner strength. I now have a beautiful baby boy to cherish, thanks to the efforts of Thea and Heather. These two contain an abundance of knowledge and two of the biggest hearts to house all the mothers, fathers, babies and families they have served. This kind of work requires a special kind of person- a healer, a confidante, an empath, & a seeker of wisdom and new information of the Divine Feminine, all as one: and that is what we call a Doula. I am ever so grateful for their unwavering friendship and assistance in paving the way for my son's journey to meet his family.
