I have been asked about my birthing story and experience by multiple people and the first thing that comes to mind is 1 word, four letters... SAGE. Sage was my Doula and words cannot express how grateful I am. Grateful to Doula Love for putting me in contact with Sage. Grateful for the opening in Sage's schedule to take us on as clients. Grateful for the calming supportive human that made welcoming our first child into this world absoluetly perfect...that human is Sage. 

Doula Love sent us a couple folks that matched up with what we were looking for in a Doula that also had availablity around the time our little one was due. We read through the Bios, set up a virtual meet and greet, and knew right away that Sage was going to be our person. 

Sage is that calming presence that you want and need. She can read a room and was very intuiative to how I was feeling and alwasy seemed 5 steps ahead. She met with us a couple times before the birth so we felt well informed of what to expect and tips/tricks...it was great! The communication was top notch all around and I full hearted believe Sage was key in us having such a great birthing experince.

We used AshLee as our birth Doula and she was amazing! I would highly recommend her. She was so comfortable to be around from our very first meeting. Giving birth is such a vulnerable experience and she was so supportive and calming and helped us through each step. If you're considering using a doula I would definitely recommend AshLee.

AshLee was an essential member on my birth team. I was hesitant to hire a doula as I was worried about having a "stranger" at my birth, but AshLee was such a calming presence at my birth, I can't imagine having done it without her. My midwives were also impressed with her knowledge and confidence in a non-hospital setting. She was also very friendly and communicative about pre- and post-birth check ins. I would 100% recommend her!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with Doula Love. Our doula, Shontee, has been our rock through the perinatal process - pregnancy, birth and postpartum. She has been a constant source of wisdom and a calming presence for us as we enter parenthood. In particular, I can’t imagine our birth without her. Not only did she help us prepare thoughtfully, but was absolutely critical during labor. She suggested different positions to help the baby descend, created a space in the delivery room that was inviting vs medical, taught my partner methods to support me meaningfully, offered pain coping techniques and guided us through the extremely stressful experience of an emergency c-section. We’re so very grateful that Shontee was part of our birthing team!

 


We also took a number of classes offered through Doula Love that helped to build our skills, set expectations and facilitate helpful discussion between my partner and I as we prepped to welcome our child. Working with Doula Love undoubtedly eased the more turbulent elements of transitioning into parenthood and partnering with a doula was the most impactful step we took.

Tisha is fantastic! Reassuring and knowledgeable. Knowing she'll be there when I give birth boosts my confidence.

My doula was Lori Lawrence

I am so thankful to have her as my doula, she provided one of the most wonderful experiences as a new mom that I could ever ask for. Very knowledgeable and understanding, she is kind and makes any situation feel relax and supportive. I would recommend her to anyone but specially new moms out there that need to navigate this new experience.

Barb was informative, easy going, and supportive prior to the birth. During labor, she was invaluable! We're so glad she was with us. Additionally the breast feeding class that came with our doula was extremely helpful. The teacher was so knowledgeable and conveyed info an a very accessible way.

Our whole experience with our Doula Lori was an absolute pleasure. She is so knowledgeable and caring. She showed up when we needed her to and her bag of tricks was extensive! Because of her guidance I chose to record a meditation for my pregnant partner that we used as a hypnobithing technique. It really helped her get through the hardest parts of her 39 hour labor. I don't know what I would've done without her support. She gave me the chance to get some rest and feel supported. And of course her wealth of knowledge and experience made us feel so comfortable. She helped my partner get through the hardest moments and make the most informed decisions necessary to bring my son into this world. It all ended smoothly and she didn't need a single stitch. It was quite an experience and my partner and I are just so grateful we got to have Lori be there with us.

Melissa Harger was a great fit for our family as we welcomed our second child in August 2023. She provided so much support and peace of mind to both my husband and me during my unmedicated hospital labor and delivery. She is knowledgeable, passionate, and professional. I appreciated her calm and friendly demeanor, thoughtfulnes, and flexibility. She provided excellent resources tailored to me.  I would highly recommend Melissa to be your doula.

We had AshLee as our Doula! She was everything I wanted out of a Doula and more! She made sure my Husband and I felt comfortable and supported before, during, and after birth. During the labor and delivery process she helped me most by suggesting different positions to labor in, helping me make the room smell good and adding mood lighting, and most of all being there as someone to talk to between contractions while my Husband got some rest. She also made suggestions to my Husband on ways he could better support me. Overall she made my birth experience one I will never forget, and it would be a dream to have her be a part of my future births. If you need someone to make laugh between contractions then switch into doula mode within seconds, she's your doula!

Portland Doula Love had been a fantastic resource for me when I started having anxiety based around being a first time mama. I took multiple classes with them, met some amazing people and have hired 3 seperate Doula's through them for my two births. They are a fantastic company who is truly there to advocate, connect, guide, support and more on your parenting journey.

We loved working with Doula Love for the birth of our first son! Shontee was the perfect fit for our family. She brought a healthy balance of knowledge, education, relaxation & humor to our experience. Having a doula for our pregnancy was the best decision and Doula Love made it easy to accomplish!

Doula Love was easy to work with, provided clear guidance, and helped us have a smooth transition into parenthood. Morgan was a fantastic postpartum doula! Her calm energy and welcoming presence was exactly what we needed as we transitioned to becoming a family of three. We loved her ability to provide guidance on our postpartum questions and give us different approaches to try. As a bilingual couple, it was important for us to find a doula that could also communicate in Spanish. Morgan had excellent communication throughout our entire experience. If you are looking for a doula that honors spirituality, knows how to actively listen, provides useful resources, and is passionate about her work, Morgan at Doula Love is the doula for you!!
