I cannot express how amazing Ashley and Lakeisha are and how happy am I with their services! They both have this positive energy that has helped keep me focused and determined through this joyous journey. They really spent a lot of time with me to make sure I was completely comfortable with them. They were extremely kind with my husband and family as well, and kept everyone included; they showed them how they can assist me during the pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. They really informed me, my husband, and my family so well about labor and delivery that we were comfortable once I began to go into labor. When you go to the hospital it can feel overwhelming because you deal with so many different doctors and all of the complicated medical terms. Ashley and Lakeisha prepared me so well that I understood what was going on and what the doctors were saying during my stay at the hospital. It relieved me of so much stress and worry because I felt that I had some control over what was going on. Ashley and Lakeisha communicated with very well each other. I could always get in reach with one of them no matter the time or day. They were there for me throughout the pregnancy, labor, and even after when I was having difficulties with breastfeeding. I would recommend Ashley and Lakeisha to anyone who is interested in having a doula because they will mentally and spiritually guide you through this life-changing adventure. For my next pregnancy, I will definintely use them again.
Having Ashley and Lakeisha at our birth was a huge comfort for my husband and I. They helped keep me comfortable throughout labor with crucial back rubs and essential oils, and also helped guide my husband on what would be most helpful. It was our first time experiencing birth and with Ashley and Lakeisha's help I was able to have the un-medicated natural birth I wanted. It was a tremendous comfort to have someone we knew and trusted with us at the hospital throughout the entire labor and delivery process. I'm so grateful to have had their support and share such an important life experience with them.
After a nightmare delivery of my first child which resulted in a C-section, I was determined to have a VBAC this time. By the time I went into spontaneous labor 2+ weeks after my EDD, my mind was full of doubt and fear that my dreams of having a natural birth were unachievable. Just as I was telling my fiance that "I don't think I can do this...", Lakeisha walked in and everything changed. She has a smile that lights up the room and gives you peace. Her calming demeanor and sincerity to help me reach my goal of a natural, drug-free birthing experience were exactly what I needed to get me through the process. If it weren't for her, I would have given up and regretted it. She thought of everything to help me with pain management techniques including various positions, essential oils, coaching me through each contraction, teaching me how to work with the contraction instead of fighting against them or running from the pain, massage, encouragement, candle light, affirmations, etc. She was so attentive and helpful to me and my fiance. She made it a point to show my fiance ways he could help me so he was able to be a major part of the experience as well and not made to feel like a 3rd wheel. He and I both agree Lakeisha made the difference in my birthing experience. Thanks to her, I was able to achieve my dream of having a natural labor and birthed a 9lb 1oz. baby without any meds. Lakeisha also captured the labor experience for us, and now I have pictures to remember the amazing experience. Seriously cannot express how greatful I am to Lakeisha! She is a priceless asset at any birth!
The experience with Ashley & LaKeisha as my doulas was phenomenal! They came equipped with everything to make my second natural birth as relaxing as possible. They paid close attention to how I was progressing and assisted with keeping me focused on bringing a healthy baby into the world. Ashley & Lakeisha coached me through breathing in moments where I was tense & spoke positive words of encouragement in moments where I felt unsure. They also used aromatherapy & massage techniques to keep me relaxed. From the moment I met them, I knew I was in good hands. They’re down to earth professional women who are patient, kind & understand the birth process. This was my first experience using a doula and I would highly recommend Ashley & LaKeisha to new and veteran moms. Thank you so much Ashley & LaKeisha for assisting our beautiful daughter into the world! We love you two!
Lakeisha was my delivery doula and she was amazing! I don't think I could have had a natural vaginal delivery with no medication without her. Not only was she comforting but she also gave my husband techniques as a labor partner as well. Thank you so much for the outstanding support ??
Let me start by saying this was the best exsperience of my life. I didnt think that after birth I would miss that part but I really do. The support I recieved from my doula was amazing. She provided mental and physical support with essential oils to help keep me alert and focused and calm and physical support by making sure I was comfortable at all times..well as comfortable as you can be during labor. I felt like I had my own coaching and cheering team the whole time and the exsperience was amazing. I really feel blessed for seebaby allowing me these services. Thank you all and I cant wait for baby number two in the far far....far lol future to use you all again! Baby Victor and I love you all!
Ashley and Keisha were absolutely AMAZING! My husband and I provided a birthing plan to them a few weeks before our child was born and they made sure we followed that to the T. They also made sure to keep us informed on some of the medical terms that we didn't quite understand and gave us in depth details on what the doctors were saying through out the labor and delivery process. They were in sync with all of my needs and also provided things for me that I didn't even know I needed. I highly recommend them for any birth process. Having them with me made my birth the most incredible experience I've ever had. I will definitely be using them for my next delivery.
Ashley and Keisha were absolutely amazing. They were totally available to me before the birth, and helped me to be patient and gave me ways to prepare myself mentally and physically. Ashley got to the hospital quickly after I was admitted, and Keisha came a little later, and they both stayed all the way until we were settled into our post partum room. They brought all kinds of tools to help me relax, and were so encouraging -- especially when I had blood pressure problems that made me have to change up my plan. They helped my husband support me too, by giving him suggestions for how to comfort me and help me through contractions. They kept the feeling in the room so peaceful -- even when it could have felt very tense, it never did. Their expertise and comfort gave me such a sense of calm. After delivery, they made sure that the birth plan regarding my baby was followed exactly by all the hospital staff and did a great job keeping everyone on the same page. They worked with everyone so professionally and comfortably, which was a relief too. They have also continued to follow up with me every few days and talk me through my concerns, making sure that baby and I are both where we should be
I wasnt super convinced that I needed a doula at first, but I'm beyond glad I chose to, and that I chose these ladies. I was so thankful for their support through every stage of this birth, and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
