We thoroughly enjoyed having Dee as our postpartum doula! She was very kind, professional and helpful. Her warm and easy going personality fit in perfectly with our household. She embraced the chaos of four children under four, including our newborn twins, with so much grace. She helped cook and prepare food for me while I nursed nearly around the clock and always left my kitchen clean. She helped with all the tasks that I was having a hard time getting done and usually did it while baby wearing one of my twins, which I found delightful and impressive. I am so grateful for her help in those early months and would absolutely recommend her to any new mom.
I had a rather traumatic time during my first delivery and postpartum experience, so when I moved to Iowa, ready to have my second child, I knew I wanted a postpartum doula in place. Dee was one of the only doulas I could even find to come to the Pella area, but I am pleased we ended up with her. She was much like having a grandma, only more focused on my well-being and needs. She made me feel at ease, cooked, cleaned, etc., all without being asked. She was so good with the kids. My one year old cried when she left, and I also felt like I had made a friend. She was good-natured, bubbly, and funny. I plan to use her services again whenever we are ready for our third child, and would recommend her as a postpartum doula.
