Having Joanie as a postpartum doula was so incredibly helpful. The transition from pregnancy to caring for an infant after childbirth is physically taxing and requires rest, healing, and a slower pace. How does one accomplish that as a new mom? WITH HELP! When we had our third baby, we knew we needed all hands on deck. Joanie was supportive, loving, and helped in practical ways like making us small meals, making sure I had time to rest, and helping me take care of physical needs (while holding the baby so I could shower, etc). Joanie was also super helpful with my older two kids and cared especially well for my middle child who needed extra love and support during the transition. I hope every Mom (and family) has the opportunity to work with a postpartum doula as loving and supportive as Joanie and for those that get the gift of Joanie herself, they are blessed! If you’re looking for someone to help you practically with empathy, insight, and know how, Joanie is the perfect fit!

My experience with Joanie was wonderful. As I transitioned from being a mother of 2 boys to 3 boys all under the age of 4, I was in desperate need of PostPartum care. Also recovering from a C Secrion I was limited as to what normal duties I could do. Joanie came into caring for our family at the perect time. We had Joanie‘s help for the first 2 months. She was a God sent angel! Joanie has the most precious gift of working with newborns. She lulled my sweet boy to sleep many times. She has a natural gift to be able to come into your home, asses the different needs and step in at the exact right moments. From changing diapers, holding baby so momma can rest, playing with older boys, doing dishes, folding laundry, organizing home and being an emotional support through the roller coaster of postpartum emotions/hormones. She is an expertise when it comes to all things newborn care, breastfeeding & postpartum recovery. Joanie you were the best gift in this sensitive and intimate time of life. Our family is forever grateful for you and your wonderful care during this chapter of our lives. Thank you for everything. May you bless many Mommas and families to come!

Joanie was a godsend to our 4th trimester healing! She was very hands on with all of us! She helped with the new baby so I could eat, sleep or shower or would play with my toddler so I could rest with the baby. She accompanied us to several appointments which was a huge help to our family. I met with Joanie before having my baby and was pleased at how open and personable she is. I knew we’d only benefit from having her assist us with the transition to a family a four and I was right!!
