I couldn’t have asked for a better postpartum doula than Marcy Grantor! Marcy was above and beyond helpful in her support for me at this time of huge change and transition with my new baby and recovering from an unexpected c-section. I am a first time mom and doing this on my own without a partner so the extra support Marcy provided - by not just being punctual, having suggestions for local lactation support groups, help around the house, and very wonderful with my little baby - but also the emotional support of asking how I was feeling and checking in when she wasn’t working with me at the moment to see how we were doing and letting me know I’m doing a good job - was really more than I expected. She really helped build my confidence as a first time parent.
I hired Marcy for some overnight support and day support, both types of support were really helpful because I was able to get more rest than I had been getting during the nights she was here and during the days she was here I could get things done and take a shower and stuff while knowing my little girl was being well cared for - Marcy even helped me give my baby her first bath, which I was very nervous about doing. I also had to go to a medical appt where I couldn’t bring my new baby and Marcy stayed with her and reassured me that she would be fine and even sent me photos of her while I was at my appt because it was really hard for me to leave my little girl for the first time. I can tell that Marcy knows intuitively what kinds of support her client needs, she is great at communicating, and she really loves the baby she is caring for as if it were her own. I would hire Marcy again for sure.
Marcy was a wonderful post pardum doula. She has an amazing energy that was so nice to have in our home. She was incredibly helpful with everything from breastfeeding support, baby soothing and many more tips and supports for us as first time parents. Most importantly she was wonderful with our son Miles and he loved being with her.
Having Marcy as post-partum doula for our baby girl Maya was one of the best decisions we made as new parents. Marcy is reliable, compassionate, knowledgeable, warm, fun and enthusiastic person. She cared for our daughter with love and patience. Having Marcy in our house was always calming and enjoyable. In addition to being a great caregiver to our baby girl, Marcy also helped me - a brand new mom - to transition into the new role with providing gentle advice, encouraging me to take care of my own needs and helping with light household chores. We can highly recommend Marcy!
Marcy brought a such a caring, compassionate, and positive presence into our home every night she arrived. She cared for our twins two nights a week for the first month of their lives; she was the only person besides my husband and I to feed them, change them, and care for them overnight. She also helped out with small household tasks (sweeping, folding laundry, cleaning bottles and breast pump parts) that made life a little easier during our waking hours. We were able to retreat to our bedroom, take a break and get some rest when Marcy came over, knowing that our boys were in capable hands. Marcy handled the challenges of caring for twins with grace and ease; she never seemed flustered or overwhelmed and had so much love to share with our newborn babies. She also went out of her way to connect us with resources (a back-up doula for nights she wasn't scheduled to come over, information on local parenting groups) to help ease our transition into parenthood. It was truly a gift to have her in our home and part of our family for the first several weeks of our son's lives. We wholeheartedly recommend her to any family looking for postpartum doula to care for their twins or singleton newborn.
My post partum doula experience with Marcy Grantor was excellent! She is a kind, loving, friendly and compassionate person who instinctively knows both how to care for little people and adults. She offered resources, verbal support and a listening ear to a new first time mom that really needed a little sleep! By providing excellent and professional care I was able to sleep and be my best self for my child and I. Can’t rave enough about how excellent Marcy is, as a person and an exceptional post partum doula!
Marcy came to help us out after our second child was born - we also have a four-year-old. Working with her was easy, fun, and relaxing: she instantly connected with our four-year-old and had him playing games and laughing while I rested with the baby. She asked thoughtful questions and checked in with me about what I wanted and needed. She also intuited this - for example, after she and my son played for a while, I went into his room and it was all picked up - lovely! She then held and soothed the baby while I focused on our son. It was great to have time to focus on each child and know the other was in wonderful, knowledgable, loving hands. On a different visit, March stayed with the baby while the four-year-old and I had a brief outing. I was nervous about leaving before she came over, but once I saw my baby so happy and snuggly in her arms, it was easy to have some time away with my eldest. Marcy is a great listener too: she asked thoughtful questions about our birth and how I was doing and provided positive feedback and encouragement. She had keen insights into feelings and sibling relationships that were very helpful. I highly recommend her - she will give you and your family support, kindness, and understanding!
