Alex is a gift from God! She started with our family one week postpartum and completely exceeded all our expectations. She quickly got to know our place, and did household chores for me and the baby without me having to ask. This was a total life saver as a new mom. She made sure my son was taken care of in between my nursing sessions so I could eat and get much needed rest. It’s completely crazy, but I never heard my son cry once with her in the two months she was with us. He of course cried for me plenty of times. She is a baby whisperer.
She was able to help answer any questions I had about taking care of my son. She also helped me through multiple breastfeeding delimmas. She brought peace to such a stressful time in my life. Alex is also extremely professional and would do what I requested even if she had a difference of opinion. I cannot recommend her enough.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had Alex to help us with our son at night. She was absolutely incredible. She always showed up on time with a smile, eager to help us in every way! She did an AMAZING job with our son and even helped guide him to sleeping through the night by 3.5 months. As a new mom, I am constantly doubting myself and she was always happy to clarify any questions I had (I had a LOT) or to reassure me that we were doing a good job. At first, the idea of leaving my son with a total stranger was terrifying but she quickly put my mind at ease. I would recommend her to any and all of my friends and family. We miss her immensely but, thanks to her help, we no longer need her because our son is sleeping through the night!
Alex helped me twice very early on after bringing my daughter home. She gave me good advice on nursing as I was having difficulty but best of all forced me to nap. She took over, put together snack boxes for my nursing areas, did laundry and forced me to nap. I needed to be forced as I wasn't following the "sleep when the baby sleeps" advice and should have. Thank you Alex!!
Alex is amazing and I highly recommend her for post-pardom doula services. My husband and I hired her to stay with us the first night we came home from the hospital with our daughter. Being first time parents, we were feeling a little overwhelmed and inexperienced. She calmed our anxieties and taught us more in one night than we learned in any of our hospital parenting courses. More importantly, she supported my breast feeding and helped teach my baby to latch when I was ready to give up. When we hired her again a few weeks later, she was even able to identify that our baby was showing signs of reflux. Once the doctor confirmed it and put her on medication, we suddenly had a happy baby! The differnce was like night and day! Alex is so knowlegable and such a delight to be around. And an added bonus: once she puts the baby to sleep, she offers to help clean and do laundry! She's honestly a miracle worker and I can't say enough wonderful things about her.
Alex came to help us 4 days after our son was born and I wish she had been there all along! She is beyond amazing with moms, dads and babies. She immediately felt like family. While I was recovering from a C section and struggling to nurse, she kept everything on track. There is nothing she can’t or won’t do! She fed me freaking blueberries on a fork while I was nursing! I’m booking her the moment I get pregnant again.
My experience with Alexandra was wonderful. She was highly competent but also caring, compassionate, and encouraging. Throughout my pregnancy, she offered guidance and emotional support. During labor, she was the voice guiding me through, calming me and giving me strength. I am certain I could not have had a successful natural birth without her encouragement. Alexandra continued to give guidance and emotional support after the delivery of my son. She was an immense resource for me before, during, and after delivery. She is simply an amazing doula and I'm so thankful to have had her there with me through it all.
Alexandra was my doula during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. Since this was my first pregnancy I was so grateful for her guidance and support. She advised on the products we would need and which ones we could do without which really helped us use our budget wisely. And she was also super helpful with my pregnancy questions and which exercises to do to help in the long run. Since our little guy was born early she was our anchor and helped us through the process. The massage, pressure, and aromatherapy really made the difference when it came to pain management and we could not have been more thankful for her support. When we were able to bring our son home she helped us navigate through those early days of zombie hood. You can tell how much love is really put into everything she does. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Alexandra and her work as our doula. She made a lasting impact on our family and helped to make this pregnancy and delivery the most special time in my life.
