Lydia is too helpful and patient with all of my questions and concerns. Honestly, working with Lydia was the best decision ever. I am normally a really anxious worry wart and was extremely anxious about delivering ESPECIALLY during this Coivd-19 crisis. After multiple check ins with Lydia, I felt confident heading into the Hospital. Needless to say my introductory into Mommyhood has been amazing and not as hard as I had imagined.


Even though we may get awesome gems of information from other Mothers, a Doula adds even more benefit and individualized coaching throughout pregnancy and after!


Thank you Lydia! =)

Working with Lydia was nothing short of amazing! Lydia was kind, caring, concerned, and gave us so much information that I am certain I had the best possible birth experience for me! She was always available to answer any questions we had as a family! Lydia embraced my partner and made sure she was just as informed as me , which allowed my mate to make the best choices for me when I was to far into labor. If you are thinking about using Lydia as a doula, please please just book now!!

My experience with Lydia as a doula for my wife was great. We were unable to meet with her until my wife was 8 months pregnant due to my work schedule. She was very flexible and patient. My wife had a complicated delivery and although Lydia wasn’t there physically she was readily available via call and text to guide us in making informed decisions. I definitely would recommend her service and believe that a doula is definitely needed for new and experienced moms. Lydia provided us with more information than the doctors did so that we could make an inform decision and not just take what was given to us. She helped reduce the stress and overwhelming feelings of making important decisions when it comes to my wife and my baby’s health.

Lydia was great, our initial appointment I was 8months pregnant and was use to being told by doctors what would happen instead of being presented with options for me to choose. Through working with Lydia my husband and I learned that we can say no and speak up about what we want. After my prenatal appointment with my doctor Lydia walked us through everything the doctor stated. I had complications with my delivery and Lydia was available to answer any questions my husband had on making decisions to move forward. A week after delivery I was rushed to the hospital due to loss of blood and blood clots. Lydia was available still to help us make decisions and made sure we advocated for ourselves when the hospital skipped steps to discharge me. I definitely would recommend her service and believe that a doula is definitely needed for new and experienced moms. Lydia provided us with more information than the doctors did so that we could make an inform decision and not just take what was given to us. She helped reduce the stress and overwhelming feelings of making important decisions when it comes to me and my babies health.

What can I say there's so much goodness to share!...lol Lydia is amazing! She was so helpful and very resourceful when it came to everything that my husband and I needed. When it came to the feedback session it was easy to say all of the amazing things that she did but we struggled with finding an area of growth outside of my husband wanting her to be in Atlanta lol...the biggest part that I took from this experience is that I have consent to everything, if I don't want to do something I don't have to. We learned about the different things used during birth if needed and or necessary as well as what to expect out of the process whether it be vaginal or c-section delivery. She was available to us the entire time and we reached out to her during late times in the middle of the night and she was there for us every step of the way. She is very passionate about what she does and also has a very genuine spirit and we felt the care and support that she had for us. I have already recommended some pregnant women to her, getting a doula was one of the best decisions I could have made!! The last cherry on top was that she and my OB were on the same page with pretty much everything and it made me feel even more at ease especially when it came to advocating for myself!!

I found out I was having twins super early in my pregnancy. Having Lydia as my Doula was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, I was terrified throughout my pregnancy. When i was in labor I actually got induced and Lydia was there from the time I called her to the minute I was being rolled into OR. Her support and reassurance through EVERYTHING was phenomenal!!! It was a great experience for me and my family. I recommend Lydia to any and everyone looking for or interested in a doula she’s truly amazing at what she does!

We decided to have a Doula after we reflected back on the roller coaster ride of our first birth. Although we knew it was a serious need, we didn’t realize just how much of an impact it would have on the pregnancy and delivery. Lydia was an amazing support throughout the pregnancy. She utilized her knowledge as a Doula combined with her knowledge as a L&D nurse to help me understand all the medical things I was experiencing and help us prepare for the birth. For our home visit Lydia brought the exact tools that they used in the hospital. Having seen those tools prior to experiencing them made it so much less overwhelming in the hospital for delivery. She was a phenomenal support of advice, a guide, and advocate in the hospital. Her knowledge of ways to help labor progress and different ways to physically manage a low intervention birth was exactly what we needed. Although we wound up needing some interventions Lydia helped us stay flexible and focused to reach the ultimate goal, our baby girl. We are so entirely grateful for her presence in our life during that time. If another baby comes along she will first person we call to take the journey with us.

I needed help with coming up with the right birth plan for my first child considering I am high risk due to several medical conditions but Lydia assured me that she would help me every step of the way. I dont know how I could have delivered my baby without her. I highly recommend her to anybody who has questions about a birth plan or pregnancy in general. She was amazing!

At first, I wasn’t sure if I should hire a doula, but I’m SSOOOOO GLAD I DID! can’t imagine having done this without Lydia by my side! She was very attentive throughout the whole process and me feel as prepared as one could be for their first time. Her background as a nurse also made me feel like I was in the best possible hands! I just can’t say enough about her as a person and a doula! 

If you are considered a doula for your labor, seriously look no further!!

Lydia has now helped me with both pregnancies and deliveries. There were some discouraging moments with my pregnancies but Lydia assisted mentally and physically to push through. With breastfeeding and my options with delivery, Lydia was very helpful. It seemed as if I was too busy to keep track of the things happening the day of my deliveries but Lydia was there to help keep track of that and now I forever have a keepsake and timeline of a beautiful day. So very grateful and more than satisfied with my Doula experience

Lydia was beyond amazing! She was very helpful from the moment I chose her as my doula at 4 months pregnant in October 2017. I was busy going to school and working full time, and she made sure to check on me. Lydia was available to answer ALL my questions any time of day. I went from having 0 questions to millions a week. She was and still is very patient with me and always remained calm when I would stress or freak out. I was able to work with her and create a birth vision for me and my baby, while working with her I became more comfortable if my vision did not go as planned. Lydia attended doctors appointments with me and would help me come up with a list of thorough questions to ask. She advised me what to look for in a great and not so great OB/GYN. When asking questions I was able to feel comfortable with my choice of doctor. When it came time for labor Lydia exceeded all my expectations! Lydia met me at the hospital and from then on we started to implemented my birth vision. I am grateful for her also being a labor and delivery nurse. I listened and communicated with her more than my real nurses because I trusted her 100%. During labor she reminded me to take care of myself and make sure I rested, I was so anxious and excited that I was wide awake. Having her there eased my mind because she was able to help break down all the medical terms. While in labor she pushed me past my level of comfort, made me change positions and do things to help my labor progress. I was stubborn but I did what she asked because I knew she was going to help me get my baby. I never realized without a doula present the doctors and nurses are rarely in the room and if you don't have anyone knowledgeable you are stuck laboring by yourself. Lydia has also helped me postpartum especially with breastfeeding, even when it seemed like the hardest thing to do but she would not let me give up I would recommend Lydia. I would definitely choose her for my future pregnancies!
