Eva was excellent as both a birth and postpartum doula! She provided essential support through a very long labor at a hospital an hour and a half away; her skill and encouragement were critical in avoiding a C-section despite slow labor progress. Eva is very experienced with many types of births (not just unmedicated) and provides excellent support tailored to each case; for example, I chose an epidural for pain relief and Eva expertly coached me on different positions I could still do in bed to improve my daughter's positioning and coached me through a long pushing phase. As a postpartum doula, Eva was very supportive and knowledgable and helped me master breastfeeding, pumping, and babywearing.

I am actually writing a testimonial from the perspective of a labor and delivery nurse. I have worked in labor and delivery in the hospital setting for 6 years and I have seen a few doulas {not enough, they really are great!}. What stood out to me about Eva's care was that she let the laboring woman take the lead and was great at reading whether she needed hands on support or needed Eva to step back and let her do her thing. Another really important thing was that the woman's support person (husband in this case) was kept in the spot light and she coached him how to support his wife. Eva was more the "third wheel" helping the couple through this exciting, but difficult new venture! Also, BONUS, she even helps with breastfeeding after birth! Seriously the whole package. I was really blown away by the gentle, individualized, compassionate care she gave this new family. I think every labor needs a doula like Eva!

Eva was my postpartum doula when our son was born in 2017. She was fantastic! My husband worked out of town during the week and she not only gave me much needed help around the house but also helped us to strategize ways for my husband to be ‘present’ for my son despite his distance. She was also a wealth of knowledge with breastfeeding and the many things that pop up for new parents that you never thought to ask. I highly recommend her!
