Amy is an incredible and kind doula. Her energy will get you through the toughest moments in labor! My partner and I enjoyed her sense of humor which she uses very appropriately at just the right times. She is knowledgeable at navigating all aspects of birth planning. I will call her as soon as we are expecting again without hesitation!
Amy was an amazing doula to work with! She was patient, kind, and informative. There were times during my birth where I wasn't the nicest to her or my other birth team members, but she remained professional and sought out to make sure my birth plan was met as closely as possible. I was able to deliver my daughter without an epidural, which was my main goal, and only needed nitrous oxide starting at 9.5 cm and beyond. I will definitely be using her services again in the future if I need it.
I cannot speak highly enough about Amy. From talking and meeting ahead of time, to the labor and birth and beyond, she was amazing. Her passion for what she does was evident from the first meeting we had. She made sure she knew our preferences, provided a wealth of knowledge and advice when needed, and were incredibly helpful throughout my pregnancy, labor and postpartum with our first child. Amy was with us for her birth and she was incredible. She helped my husband help me as well as helping me, advocating for us with the midwife and truly jumping in and taking the lead when necessary. She was always available through our texts to answer questions before we went to the hospital. She really helped us have the birth we wanted. We would definitely use Amy again if we have any more children and recommend her to everyone!
We are so thankful that Amy was our doula for our baby's birth in October 2019! She was there for us before, during and after the birth. Beforehand, she met with me several times and came to one of the prenatal appointments. When I went into labor she responded immediately to my texts at 3:30 in the morning and helped me decide when it was right to head to the hospital. She met us at the hospital and was by my side the entire time! Her encouraging words and presence were invaluable during labor and birth. She calmly and knowledgeably gave others in my support team instructions on how to help me get through the contractions. There was one moment during the pushing when I didn't think I could do it, but Amy knew exactly what to say to help me refocus. After the birth, Amy has been a supportive presence. She provided helpful breastfeeding support and continues to be there if I have any questions. Even though this was our third baby and we knew what to expect, I still highly recommend the support of a good doula. Amy was the most effective, knowledgeable and kindest doula we've had!
