Lare Golmo

We reached out to Sonya, when we were expecting our first child. We didn’t have any family members in town, so we thought of hiring a doula to support us during labor and if needed postpartum care. Sonya is experienced as both birth and postpartum doula, so it was easy to know that she’d be a right choice. She indeed proved to be professional and made us feel comfortable to share our most personal life event with her. We do appreciate her help during the big day (our child’s labor process) and suggest Sonya as a doula to any new parents, who may not know what to expect during this incredible journey.
