Here is what a client named Harmony has to say about working with April:
April saved my youngest twin daughter's life, leading me to not give up on getting real answers on what could be wrong, when all of the hospital doctors wouldn't believe me that something seemed wrong with her (turned out she had been internally injured by the hospital staff and required emergency surgery or else she would have died within 12 hours). April also supported me through pregnancy, labor, and in postpartum recovery, with organic fruit, drinks, meals, essential oils, relaxing lighting, and encouraged me emotionally, pushing me to stand up for myself and to do what's right for me and my babies.
April offered soothing massages, wellness visits, and postpartum support. She attended my failed 37 week Pitocin induction, and came during my actual spontaneous (thanks to castor oil) labor with identical twins at 41 weeks and a day. She has been an out-of-this-world Doula, truly Amazing, and has been the MVP during my challenging SIUGR HG-ridden twin pregnancy.
After a relaxing birth center birth, I was rightly terrified of birthing in the hospital OR (required for twins in FL), especially being a woman of mixed race (AKA higher mortality rate in US hospitals), and had bad experiences with multiple doctors until finding a great MFM, and April stood by me the entire time, helping to give me the strength and determination to not settle for less than the best, nor to allow the cascade of interventions to begin.
I would hire April over and over, again, 1000x over, and only regret not spending more time with her when she had offered to visit with me during my pregnancy. If you want the BEST and most experienced mama supporter and guide in your hospital, home, or birth center birth, then you have found the perfect doula. I'm so grateful for everything April has done to help me during my twin pregnancy. She is so amazing and cannot ever be thanked enough. She loves what she does and it shows and shines brighter than the sun in July.
Here is what a client named Christy has to say about working with Jenn:
Jen was awesome! She gave us some clases before the birth that were very helpful and me and my husband learned a lot about how the mom's body works. She also lend us a rebozo that was amazing!! During the birth she has a diffuser and a salt lamp while also helping with the rebozo during contractions. It was very helpful. Me and my husband are very greatfull for all her help and support. She was great!! We love her!!
Here is what a client named Alison Franks has to say about working with Kathy:
Kathy was our doula for the birth of both of our children. She was incredibly professional, personable, and SO knowledgeable. Both births were very different - the first came after 36 hours of labor, the second came after just 4 hours of labor. Having Kathy in my corner (and just a phone call away) was such a critical part of my support system through both births.
Prior to the birth of my first child, my husband and I moved to Orlando just 5 weeks before my due date - thousands of miles away from family, friends, and my OB practice. Finding Kathy, and having her support us through not only preparing for the birth of our first child, but also through the process of navigating a new city, new medical system, new hospital was such a blessing. Kathy talked me through those 36 long hours of labor, and helped me deliver our first child the way I wanted to - no epidural! Kathy also acted as our lactation consultant while I struggled with supply and breast feeding. After a lot of work, and tears, and patience, we were able to make breast feeding work for us - that victory I don't think I could have accomplished without Kathy's support as well.
When it came time for baby number two, I knew I had to have Kathy in my corner again. And she didn't disappoint. My second labor was fast and furious. By the time I got to the hospital I was 8cm dilated, and Kathy stayed on the phone with me, talking me through contractions as she drove to meet us for delivery. She talked me through every step of the labor and delivery again (which was surprisingly disorienting since it happend so fast). Her knowledge, her patience, her compassion were invaluable. I could not recommend her more highly, and could not be more grateful that she was our doula!
