JADE COOPER

Shevonne is an exceptional doula both pre-o and post-op, she was my double for all three of my natural births! I knew I wanted to deliver naturally and Shevonne was such a huge support not just for me but also for my husband. My husband could rest assure I could get through all theee deliveries knowing that Shevonne was there to coach me in breathing and making sure I was comfortable and really being the middle woman between the nurses at the hospital and my certified midwife. I was able to fully focus on myself And my breathing by knowing I had a great support system and that calmed me to get through the process! 

i strongly. Believe if it weren’t for Shevonne’s positive and expertise In breathing techniques I would not have been successful in delivering natural!

while i was pregnant she attended a couple midwife appointments and it was just great having her there for support especially since my husband was unable to take the time off from work to attend appointments.

throughout all three pregnancies I knew Shevonne was only a phone call away with any questions or concerns I may have, she always answered and was always able to answer my questions. 

i could always rest assure I was in good hands! And that alone is priceless!

Post Op Shevonne would check in with my and the family and always ask if we needed anything or had any qiestions. I can’t thank Shevonne enough for her natural skills as an outstanding doula!

There are so many wonderful things that I can say about Shevonne being a part of my birth experience. She helped me immensely. She was there for me as soon as I let her know about my pregnancy and every single moment thereafter. Was there to see and be a part of my daughter’s life even to the very last day. May my sweet angel baby rest in love. Talking about this is still very emotional for me but I want anyone who is seeking support for their pregnancy to know you can not go wrong with Shevonne when looking for doula services. I still remember times where I was alone and having her there for me was just what I needed to ease my worries about my pregnancy. I can not count the number of times she has been their for me. There was one moment I was experiencing some contractions due to dehydration and I called to let her know and she was there for me. She sat with me while I was being hydrated intravenously. Even spoke up for me when I was to nervous to speak up for myself when I was unsure of whether I could leave. But most importantly she to this day is still here for me. My daughter passed away in April of 2016 and I know without a doubt if I needed her she would be there. This speaks to the kind of doula and beautiful and amazing spirit she is.
