Nancy is a lovely, and exceptionally warm doula! from our first consulration she was very professional and made me feel instantly comfortable. Such a positive and great experience I would highly recommend her. She was there when I had my baby boy and even got him a gift! Nancy is such a wonderful person and I would highly recommend her!

Nancy isn’t a doula, she is a family member! 

She is a wonderful person. Very friendly and supportive. Even before birth, she was always in touch making sure everything is going well. She took good care of me during labor and kept asking the midwives and nurses about everything going. During labor, she was really supportive and helping me, I didn’t feel shy or awkward about having her around me and my husband. She kept telling me what to do to ease the pain. She stayed up all night with me. I’m pretty sure that at some point I cracked her bones during pushing. Nancy didn’t take care of me only but my husband too and now she’s my daughter’s friend.

If someone ever asked me to recommend a doula, I’d definitely mention Nancy. She is just so kind and amazing and I was very lucky to have her by my side on such an unforgettable day.
