We were so blessed to have Larisa be a part of the birth of our daughter. I had many worries about labor, being in the hospital, and breastfeeding. After researching how beneficial a doula can be, I knew we needed to find the perfect one. Larisa not only answered all of my questions during the second half of my pregnancy, but she prepared my fiancé and I for the most amazing birth. She gave us the tools we needed to create a birth plan, prepare for a calm, beautiful labor, and had an infinite amount of knowledge from doing extensive research on things we both felt worried/unsure about. Every meeting with her we both walked away feeling so much more confident and knowing the things we wanted to do more research on. It was exactly what we needed to make the birth of our first child everything we wanted it to be. Her communication is beyond what we expected and the knowledge and support she brings to the table during pregnancy and after is incomparable. We definitely would use her services again!

Having Larissa as our doula was one of the best decisions me and my husband made in bringing our first child to the world. She was very respectful, generous with her time knowledge and love! Going through the birthing process for the first time, we have been able to make some important decisions with more confidence and without regrets afterwards.  She was very compassionate and encouraging! And timely postpartum visits were a huge help for my baby blues. She made our experience memorable and enjoyable!  She's got a heart for it, highly recommend her.  If we have another child, I would love her to be my doula again!

I was so happy I had Larissa as my doula. Having a hospital birth was a little worry some for me because of past experiencea, but knowkng she was going to be there for me really helped me relax. She was very supportive and respectful of everything going on and it eased my mind knowing she was there for me. She’s got awesome vibes that she brings with her, and knows just how to help and be there in the peak of the moment weather  it’s giving you water, massage or just supportive words. Would definitely recommend her if you’re looking for a very uplifting, supportive and calming doula. I absolutely loved her!
