Haley truly transformed our lives. We were not first time parents, yet we were utterly clueless as to why our new baby couldn’t sleep. After ten months, we were at our wits end. We had already tried other sleep consultants and postpartum doula services in hopes of getting our baby to sleep. We would see a small improvement at first, and then within a day or two find ourselves back at square one with a baby who slept no more than 3 hour stretches at night. We were exhausted, and the lack of sleep was putting a strain on our ability to parent both of our children with kindness and patience. Our baby was miserable as well — he was constantly cranky, tired, and hungry. We began to worry about his development being impaired by his lack of proper sleep. Finally, we turned to Haley.
Haley’s process was different from start to finish. From our first phone call, she made us feel like we were in incredibly capable hands. She gave us the confidence we needed to break a terrible cycle that served neither us nor our baby. After 72 hours, our grumpy little monster — whose naps were inconsistent and who had never slept through the night at 10 months — had turned into a little angel. Starting that weekend, he adopted a schedule of two 1.5 hour naps during the day and 12 hours of sleep at night. We did not have to sacrifice our nursing relationship (a fear of mine beforehand), and we did not have to let our baby “cry it out” (another huge fear). Three months later, our baby smiles more than ever and is growing into a happy, strong, loving little boy whom we absolutely adore. Thank you so much to Haley for giving us the gift of nighttime sleep! We HIGHLY recommend her services to anyone, and only wished we’d turned to her sooner!
I'm so grateful to Haley! I hired her for placenta encapsulation after I gave birth to my second son. She was very prompt and professional from the moment I first contacted her, always responding quickly to my questions and reaching out to make sure I understood the process. Also, she has an easy digital system set up for a contract and payment. She was easy to work with, which I appreciated as there is so much to prepare for before baby comes.
After I delivered, she did her work quickly and professionally. She worked in my kitchen but I never felt like she was in the way. After she finished up, she was in touch a few days later to make sure everything was going ok. Working with Haley, I felt so taken care of. I will definitely be recommending her services to friends in the future.
Sleep training: Haley is professional and excellent at her job. I recommend anyone to call and book her as soon as you are able. I wish we would have called months sooner…you can read all of the books, ask all of your friends, but having Haley in your home to trouble shoot and monitor your baby and or toddler for you is invaluable. She is also a wonderful house guest – I was concerned about having a person I had never met in my home for 3 days and nights, but she is warm but with good boundaries, friendly but not overly talkative, straight forward but in a kind way, and patient beyond measure…a balanced and wonderful person to have doing this tedious job. Our baby was sleeping through the night and napping beautifully and on a schedule by day 3 and Rose, our toddler had HUGE breakthroughs in staying in her bed and in her room without one of us present. Getting our toddler to change habits was the hardest and I am certain we could not have stuck to the plan without Haley present. She also continued to be very present and supportive for follow up and questions the following weeks. This is an investment in the rest of your life – I can now lay my baby down for nap and bedtime, say goodnight and walk out of the room without worrying or feeling stressed because he gets himself to sleep. I will add that our children are much more rested and happier now also! She works hard for you and your whole family, but makes it feel like she is a kind friend along for the journey.
Haley was an excellent and supportive doula for our first birth. We don't have any immediate family in the area, and felt comforted knowing we had someone with experience on our side. Haley prepped us ahead of time and provided informational and emotional support leading up to the birth. She was always available to answer any questions I had and provide helpful information, questions I could ask my providers and encouraged me to advocate for myself. When labor came, Haley was responsive and there every step of the way. I'm so glad I had Haley to help navigate many of the unpredictable scenarios that we had, and I don't know if I would have been able to handle everything without having her there. I definitely recommend hiring Haley if you're looking for an awesome, supportive, knowledegable doula! She's an awesome mom, too!
Haley was with me every step of the way. She helped me p;lan for my first baby, write a birth plan, answered my hundreds of questions, came to the delivery ( i had a very long labor), and encapsulated my placenta. She really cares about helping you and your baby and that's exactly what you need in a doula. To this day we still talk and I have a friend for life.
Haley came to our home after delivery to do placenta encapsulations. She was personable, friendly and very easy to contact and communicate with. Haley was willing to answer any of our questions and provided additional resources for us to read about as my husband was a little weary of the process. She is very knowledgeable and we definitely recommend her!
