Johnny Mendoza

Having Charlotte as our doula was an extremley helpful and reassuring experience. She is extremly informed about the practices and expectatinos of maternity, labor, and post-partum care. With her help, my wife and I were able to rely on her expertise whenever we felt discouraged, hindered, or weary from labor. Charlotte was willing and able to reinforce the natural birth methods she passionatley teaches in times of need. She came fully prepared with a "doula-bag" containing oils, massaging tools, snack, water, and other items to assist my wife during labor. The way she adds modesty to her intellect makes her an easy-going and approachable person to work with. No one at the birth center had any problem working with her because of the way she carries herself. Beyond her professionalism, Charlotte will allow herself to become vulnerable to the point where you feel comfortable enough to have her as a friend, rooting for you and encouraging you to get through the labor process. She is a great advocate, friend, and just an amazing person to know and work with. My wife and I are extremely thankful for her.

Meeting with Charlotte really helped gain valuable knowledge to coach my wife through her delivery. Charlotte was available after the delivery to help evaluate our sons lip tie and latch. Big help, a lot of knowledge to be shared.
