Brittany was my doula for my baby girl born on 2/2/2023. Brittany provided various amounts of resources and knowledge throughout the entire doula process, easing my nerves often and helping tremendously with my birthing plan. She also capsulated my placenta and picked it up quickly after delivery. Although she wasn't present for my birth because of reasons outside of her control, she provided an amazing backup doula that was so helpful and encouraging.  My delivery was very different from my original birthing plan because my baby girl needed more time but I felt supported throughout the entire process. I'm grateful for my entire birthing team and blessed to have had a safe delivery.

Brittany is a phenomenal doula. As first time parents who did not know what to expect with pregnancy or labor, Brittany educated and helped us make informed decisions to aid in the arrival of our baby boy. She was always one phone call away and exceeded our expectations in terms of care. Not only was she patient through our 30+ hour labor, but she helped keep us on track towards our goal of delivering a healthy baby boy. I HIGHLY recommend having Brittany join you on your journey to parenthood.

So many good things I could say but my experience with Brittany was nothing short of amazing!!!! My birth didn't go as planned so instead of a vaginal unmedicated birth I had to have a cesarean. However Brittany explained everything step by step which made me relax a bit. She also helped me prepare a birthing plan for a vaginal as well as a cesarean birth. I've never felt so empowered. One of the very few people that I would entrust with my son while I showered and took some much needed rest with my door shut! No worries at all. A meal prepared and a clean house. As Moms we need our village!!! Thank you for everything! ???? Round 2 lol

10 minutes into my interview with Brittany, I knew that she HAD TO be my doula. Her energy is so calming and affirming. She listened, and let me talk as long as I had to. I had a very traumatizing experience with my first birth, and she listened to every word. She reassured me it was okay to cry and mourn my first birth, and that all my feelings were completely valid. She then assured me that I WILL have the birth I have been dreaming of the second time around. From that moment, she did so much to ensure myself and my husband were prepared to give me the birth I deserved. Unfortunately Brittany caught a cold the day before I went into labor a little over a  week early. However, fortunately, I had such an amazing doula! From her sick bed, she handpicked another doula to be there for me during my labor. Even while under the second doula’s care, Brittany was checking on me, and making sure I was okay, all while she wasn't feeling well herself. I cant say enough great things about Brittany and her services. I have already recommended her to a few friends, who have since hired her as well! If by some chance I have a third child, Brittany will be the first person I call! I am so blessed to have been under Brittany’s care

I don’t know what I would've did without you. Being in labor for two days and then going through it naturally, no epidural/no meds would NOT have been possible if it wasn’t for you being here for me. I wanted to give up many times, but your words of encouragement and preparation as a doula kept me pushing & seeing the bigger picture. It means the world to me that I was able to experience bringing my daughter into the world the way I did & it’s majority thanks to you. I love you so much & if ANYONE needs/wants doula services, please let my sister bless you with her gift because that’s what it truly is. She was a gift from God.

Out of all 3 of my deliveries this was the best, she helped me advocate for what I wanted and it made the doctors listen. During labor she was a life saver and helped eased the process. Not to mention all the information she provided beforehand for me to learn more about L&D.

Brittany was there for me throughout my pregnancy and delivery. I knew the moment I found out I was pregnant that I would want a doula. Brittany was the first Doula I interviewed and there was an instant connection. Even though I didn’t have the birth I wanted, Brittany was there to hold my hand and help me through it. She was and still is my emotional support. She is extremely knowledgeable, personable and professional. I highly recommend her!

Brittany’s a family member of ours and she assisted me with my birth in December 2016. Several weeks prior, she contacted me and we went over a worksheet of what I was looking for in my ideal delivery of daughter. She then emailed to me and followed up, every couple of days to see if I had any questions or concerns. Also, when the evening I delivered my daughter, she was there to assist in breathing exercises, how to deal with contractions and if I wanted to hold off on administration of any meds. I felt at ease, as she was my huge advocate! If I have another baby, I’ll definitely use Brittany as my doula again.

Brittany was an amazing doula and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a doula!! She was a great support for my first natural birth. Brittany was very informative and also super patient, and friendly. I learned so much about labor and birthing techniques from her, that I didn’t even need to attend a birth class. She is truly an amazing person. My family and I are thankful for all of her support!!

 Britt helped me deliver my second and it was truly a great experience. The minute I called she came running with alll the goodies in tow. I definitely would have given up without her. She advocated for me when I couldn’t and supported whatever decision I decided to make. She has a special place in my heart and is amazing at what she does. If by some sort of divine intervention, I became pregnant again, she would be the first person I call.
