I believe life truly has a way of working itself out. We met Liam only a couple of weeks before we delivered our son, Maddox and we can’t imagine not having Liam be apart of our day. Our friend and old doula, Sara was supposed to be my doula but she had her daughter only 9 weeks before I delivered Maddox. So she turned me over to meet Liam hoping it would be a good match for us. And it was! I came into it with an open mind but apart of me was originally really sad that Sara wasn’t going to be apart of our day because we had grown a close bond with her over my pregnancy. She started off as my prenatal yoga instructor, then my doula, and now a good mama friend of mine too. In the end, I am truly so grateful that she had her daughter so close to Maddox because it led Kody and I straight to Liam. Exactly where we were meant to be no matter how short our time frame was. She was truly incredible. Very medically inclined, extremely helpful with any questions or concerns my husband and I had. And she was absolutely fantastic to have in the delivery room! We couldn’t have asked for a better doula to help us through our experience. She knew all the right positions, the best things to say to keep you focused, and she had THE best hands for the right spots when I would have a deep contraction! Kody and I both genuinely wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to be apart of our experience. We had a slow start to my early labor so we got to know each other really well. And I’m so grateful that we did because we really got to know each other. Making our experience together even more special! I remember waking up the next morning with our newborn little boy, and my husband and I were in awe with how positive our experience was. We both said we truly couldn’t have don’t it without her. (Nor would we have wanted to!) We are so grateful to Liam! Love, The Quinn’s

Liam was everything my husband and I could have asked for in a doula.    From our first meeting, we felt comfortable with her and in good hands. She answered our questions, provided relevant information and resources on labor and delivery and supported us as we made our birth plan. During labor, her prescense was so welcomed as she guided my husband and I in comfort measures as we made the journey of welcoming our first baby. She was patient, kind, encouraging, and had our best interests at heart. We are so grateful for her and highly recommend her to any couple or individual.

I can not say enough good things about Liam and her amazing care for me and my family through my pregancy, labor, and post-partum care. I had a lot of fear going into the delivery room, even though I'd already been through it once! My post-partum recovery with my first was traumatic and so difficult. Liam provided me with so much information that helped me get through my fear for delivery. Having her calming presence in the delivery room was a blessing for me and my husband. She was making calls to the doctor before we even knew baby was coming- he came fast and furious! In my post-partum visit, and cleaned my kitchen and helped me to just relax. Goodness! I would absolutely recommend Liam to anyone looking for a doula. Thank you Liam for your amazing care.

My husband and I were so grateful for Liam and her prescience before the birth, during, and after. She gave amazing tips and articles for us to read prior and after birth that would benefit our parenting. When she arrived for labor and delivery, she was the sweet and calm voice I needed to gain my focus and concentrate during contractions. She gave me excellent moves during labor to help with the contractions and move baby down. She even encouraged my husband in ways that he could be active and helpful during the craziest times. We are SO SO SO happy we had Liam. It was the perfect team!

We had the pleasure of working with Liam as our doula for the birth of our son when our original doula was unable to make it to the birth at the last minute. Liam was the perfect person to support my husband and I though. She was so encouraging, kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. I had such a hard labor (I know every labor is difficult) including back labor the entire time. Liam was extremely knowledgeable on different positions and support methods to help with my contractions and everything that came with labor. She not only supported me but also my husband by showing him how to help me so that he was able to be involved in the process. Liam knew exactly when to step in and support but also when to stand back for a minute and let my husband and I work on our own. I wouldn’t change a single thing about the way Liam worked with us. She went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations that I had for a birth doula. I would recommend Liam as a doula to anybody. I have no doubt that she would be amazing in any birth situation.

it was so nice having Liam come to my house postpartum after my husband went back to work. I enjoyed her visits every week because I knew I would be left with a cleaner house or emails that had been finally been answered. She went above and beyond for me! She has such a gentle and loving spirit.

You offered me a mother bear feeling I so deeply needed, you offered me the feeling that I had a voice and it was worthy of being heard. This was the first time I had ever felt this way in a doctor setting. Unfortunately my birth didn’t go exactly as planned but you still made me feel safe and heard. You gave me what I needed when I needed it the most. I will always be grateful and thankful for the memories and experience.
