Laura Matthiesen

Layloni is an incredible doula and human being. I would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family.


She will forever hold a special place in my heart. In fact, Layloni has become a dear friend and irreplaceable part of both my life and my daughter’s life. Without hesitation she went above and beyond all of my expectations. Her kindness, dedication, and passion were clearly evident in her knowledge and interactions. She possesses strong communication skills and a special way of empowering and encouraging mama’s during pregnancy, labor, and postpartum.


Layloni actively listened to my concerns, fears, and victories while offering support, patience, validation, and resources as appropriate. My late pregnancy and labor were far from what I had hoped for or envisioned. With Layloni’s support, I was not only able to gracefully accept my experience as unique and beautiful. but I was able to tap into my inner strength and embrace motherhood with a positive perspective.


Her professionalism and empathy extended well beyond my pregnancy and labor as she drew on her own experience as a mother. She regularly checked in on me in person and by phone both after delivery in the hospital and once I was home. Additionally, she provided stellar postpartum care, helping me with my little one and basic tasks around the house. This help was indispensable as I recovered from a c-section and bonded with my baby.


Moreover, her skills with placenta encapsulation were impressive. She smoothly, timely, and professionally completed the encapsulation and provided clear instructions for taking the capsules. If you or someone you know is looking for a doula, I highly recommend Layloni.

I booked Layloni to do my belly binding after my second baby. She not only worked with our crazy schedule to meet up but she offered to stop by the hospital and just be with us for support when our baby had to stay in the NICU. She texted and checked in to see how both the baby and I were doing and always offered to help us in any way she could. when she came over for the binding she brought a little basket of home made soaps and goodies that I'm a little obsessed with. she also made it a point to include my older son in all the hoopla of the new baby while we were practicing our binding and last but not least, she reached out to wish our family a happy Halloween! Layloni is easily one of the kindest people I have met and I've only had the pleasure of meeting her once. if I can convince my hubby to go for a third baby in a few years we will absolutely ask her to be our doula!

Layloni was a great support to have before, during and after the birth of our first child. It was not the labor I had prepared for or envisioned and having her there to explain things to me and just tell me it's all going to be okay when my husband and I were anxious and scared was a huge help. She also does not forget about you after the baby arrives.  She checks in and makes sure you're okay and if you're not gives you advice.  She has such a likeable personality and is always calm.  She got along perfectly with my mom, my husband and doctors/nurses that were present during the whole process.  When you choose Layloni as your doula, you don't just get a very educated and qualified doula, you gain a friend.

Working with Layloni was a great experience. She was informative and available for questions. 

She joined me with one of my prenatal appointments and helped me walk through my delivery plan with my doctor. She also reminded me of questions I had about delivery, so I was sure to talk with my doctor about them. 

She was very supportive when it came to labor and delivery. She followed up the next day, as well. Her services did not end with delivery. 

I also used her services for encapsulating my placenta, where she answered all the questions I had regarding her process, and for binding my abdomen after delivery. She was patient and helpful with this process as well. Showing me a couple times and my husband, so we could learn to do it on our own. 

She was very professional and open to questions. I highly recommend her!

Layloni with Born Beautiful Birth Services, assisted during the birth of my son. She was a great asset to my birth and post partum experience. Layloni has a calm and patient disposition about her that is a fantastic benefit to a new or veteran mother.
She was great with assisting my husband in caring for our other young child who attended my birth. We are both very thankful for her extra help, and contributing to lessening our stress during labor and birth.
I also took advantage of the placenta encapsulation service Layloni offers. She was very thorough and did a great job of explaining the whole process. Layloni made a thoughtful water color print of my placenta for me as a keepsake.
If you are looking for a supportive and kind individual to support you during the pregnancy, labor, and post partum process, I highly recommend Layloni with Born Beautiful Birth Services.

She was there for me threw the entire labor. She helped me when I needed it. She helped me get in and out of the tub and helped me switch positions. She helped in reminding me to breathe and helping during delivery . She would run my legs and back during contractions. Loni is helpful and caring. She will be there for my next child delivery .

After I had my son in April of 2014, Layloni came to my house with food and to check in on me. I had no idea how important having someone do an in home "well check" on a postpartum mother was! I had the baby blues like a lot of mom's do but she lifted my spirits and filled my belly and heart with her caring gestures. I'm so thankful to know her and have her in my life!
