Elizabeth Ashley Miller

Sheryl was the most amazing Doula. I was a first time mom and had no idea what to expect but she was a reassuring presence from the start. She was always on time and had everything you could possibly need. She made sure to create a relaxing environment for the birth and said just what I needed to hear during labor. She also was such a huge help to my husband and helped steer him in the right direction during labor. As postpardum help she was so amazing! From the anxiety and mom guilt to deciphering the world of baby carriers, she was priceless in helping us navigate through it. She is also SOOO great with children! I highly recommend her and her staff for services to any family.
