We are so happy that we chose Lindsay as our doula. She was so supportive throughout the entire journey from pregnancy to postpartum. We can't speak highly enough about her approach to keeping her clients informed and aware of their options. She also helped ease mine and my husband's mind of the many pregnancy fears and concerns that expectant parents go through. She was a huge blessing and we would pick her over and over again.

I just had my second child January 2020. I did not have a duola with my first 8 years ago so I wasnt sure what to expect. Here was my experience. I found her information on one of the duola sites and messaged her to inquire about services. She promptly emailed me back to ser up a time to talk on the phone. We spoke on the phone a couple of times. She was very easy to talk to and answered all my questions. We met for the first time in person and again she was very personable and I felt very comfortable talking with her. She again answered all my questions and if she didn't know she quickly was able to research it from evidence based sources. She made sure I knew all my options and fully respected my decisions. During my labor she was very comforting, helping to soothe me during each contractions and kept me focus. Her being by my side helped not only me but my husband as well. I am very happy that I chose to use a duola with this pregnancy and would highly recommend Lindsay.

Lindsay and I have been friends for almost 11 years. She moved away about 3 years ago, and we have remained good friends! When we found out I was pregnant, Lindsay asked me if she could be my doula. I've never had one in the past, it really didn't know what to expect. I, of course said yes! It was one of the best decisions. She was always there for any questions or concerns I had during my pregnancy and always had comforting advice! She made a 3 1/2 hour drive to make it to birth and I couldn't be more thankful! By the time i arrived at the hospital, I was 8cm. And in EXCRUCIATING pain. I suffer from severe anxiety and depression. At this point I was telling her and the nurses I just can't do this. Lindsay kept reassuring me that I could and I'm doing great! She truly helped calm me and couched me through the breathing while massaging my legs as the shakes had set in! She respected all my wishes and never left my side! She was a true angel in my delivery room and i wouldn't have had it any other way! I am beyond grateful and thankful for everything she has done for me! We absolutely love Lindsay!! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all that you are and have done for me and my family!

I'm incredibly thankful that we made the decision to have Lindsay as our post-partum doula. She is extremely supportive, incredibly knowledgeable, selfless, and present. She made us feel both at ease and confident, even though our baby was our 4th child. I am certain we would not have had nearly as wonderful of an experience without Lindsay's help and guidance post-partum. I was unable to breastfeed my other 3 children and she was always quick to answer a text or phone call when I needed help. I'm glad we chose to use Lindsay's professional services, but I'm even more grateful that I have a friend for life!

Lindsay came into our lives at the perfect time during my pregnancy, and I could not have picked a better doula. She was a great fit for me, being very calm and easy going. She was full of encouragement and support when I needed it most. I also loved how knowledgeable she was about prenatal health, labor, and breastfeeding. My labor and delivery were very short, but I was amazed at how she was inspired to do and say just the right things at the right time.

I recommend Lindsay to almost everyone I meet who is pregnant and would definitely use her again, if we have any more children.

When I found out I was pregnant I was scared, nervous, excited soon -to-be single Mother. My sister recommended getting a doula and told me about Lindsay.  

I met with Lindsay and I felt comfortable. She was able to help me understand , listened to my wishes, and was just overall there for me! Even with a text if I had a question! 

I went to Lindsay’s breathing and relaxation class only once and it helped me soo much during my delivery for every contraction, discomfort I was in. 

I had to be induced three weeks early due to preeclampsia. Day I found out I had preeclampsia, Admitted on September 17 ,2018 and had my son on September 19,2018 with no epidural. Lindsay stayed for awhile after I delivered and let me say my family and I are so grateful she was! I had complications a little while after I delivered. She demanded the nurses to see what was wrong, they got the midwife in and doctor to see what was wrong. Without Lindsay me and my sister and dad fear the worst would have happened to me. 

I am so grateful to you, Lindsay!! 

I highly recommend Lindsay as your doula!!

Abby & Liam (my precious almost 1 year old)
