Jo Ann's support and guidance throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum were truly invaluable. She was an endless wealth of knowledge and resources to prepare us for the entire journey and to help us make informed decisions for our own personal birth plan.
We know that her guidance on how to physically prepare for labor and delivery helped greatly during our baby's birth. Her coaching my husband to be an excellent support during the labor and delivery.
Jo Ann remained fully available virtually during the Covid 19 epidemic and supported us virtually during labor, delivery and postpartum due to the need for social distancing. The quality of her support both in person and virtually was fantastic. We would highly recommend Jo Ann to any expectant parent.

Jo Ann served as our family’s postpartum doula after the birth of our daughter. Both my partner and I found her support to be invaluable. We benefitted greatly from her comforting demeanor, active listening skills, and flexibility. Jo Ann helped us learn many parenting skills including breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, and soothing our new baby. She also connected us to community resources and additional information. Most importantly, Jo Ann provided emotional support as we bonded with our baby and became a family of three. I highly recommend her services!

From the very first time meeting Jo Ann, I knew that her support is exactly what I wanted during my labor. This was my first pregnancy and my husband and I were looking for someone to guide us throughout the labor process and answer questions. Jo Ann provided us with so much information that we felt extremely confident throughout the entire pregnancy, labor and postpartum. During the labor, she guided my husband and my family throughout each moment in how they could help, she clarified what doctors were talking about and helped me make the best decisions for myself and the baby when things go tough. Her warmth and kindness gave the exact comfort we needed.
