We used Richmond Birth and Baby after the birth of our twin sons in January of 2020. We were so incredibly lucky to be referred to Kristi Ramey of Richmond Birth and Baby after our original Doula was overbooked at the time the twins were born. As you can imagine, we were a nervous wreck the first night we came home with the boys and incredibly sleep deprived. Upon meeting Kristi that night, we both knew we were in good hands and would get through that first night. I never imagined that I would hire a postpartum Doula but I am so happy that we did. Kristi Ramey and her team have invaluable knowledge and experience with babies and their families. They have a level of professionalism that is unbeatable and they provide top level care for their families. I could not imagine a better group of ladies to work with and entrust with the care of my boys. We were blown away by how Kristi and her team took care of the boys and even found time to take care of small things around the house. Each time they came to stay with us, they remembered things about the boys and kept us informed of how things went throughout the night. Kristi even suggested a great app to use for keeping track of feedings, nursing, etc. She would enter everything in the app and I could see it all the next morning. She would also review the app before coming each night to catch up on how the boys have been doing the past few days. Kristi also does things to treat her families and really cares about not only the babies but the moms as well. Their expertise with breastfeeding was also a great bonus! When you have brand new babies, it’s hard to make lactation consultant appointments, so it’s wonderful to have the guidance in the home. All around, we had a WONDERFUL experience with Richmond Birth and Baby and would recommend their services to all our friends. It is well worth the investment in the start of your baby’s new life. Thank you for all you did for us!
I love Richmond Birth and Baby because you're not just securing a single, qualified doula or nanny for your family, you are actually gaining access to a whole team of exceptionally qualified, experienced, and vetted individuals who can step in and help out should scheduling conflicts (or the desperate need for a date night) arise. Richmond Birth and Baby is a priceless resource for growing families in need of support.
Kristi and her staff were great I highly recommend them. They were awesome communicators, trustworthy, dependable and friendly. The service which was provided to me by Kristi was the overnight care. She and her staff were able to identify issues as to why my infant was having a hard time sleeping at night and it made all the difference in the world. Now this is my third child, and I feel like I have a pretty good idea about the infant stage and what to expect. But even with my experience, their wealth of knowledge was so helpful, and truly allowed me to get good rest at night so I was able to function with my other children during the day.
I had the pleasure of working with several doulas at RBB and I can't say enough how wonderful they ALL were. Kristi, Chris and Heydi were phenomenal care givers, advocates, and resources for our family, and when it's time for round 2, they are the first people I'm calling to be by my side for the birth and postpartum journey (again)!
Kristi at Richmond Birth and Baby, LLC is so easy to work with. She strives to meet YOUR needs, then does even more than you've asked for. When a new baby is born, life can turn very unpredictable. Kristi understands that and is as flexible as possible in scheduling, etc. I've met her and 3 or her doulas and they are all wonderful. Their experience with newborns is invaluable. They recognize quickly anything that seems irregular and also can tell you when your baby is like all babies. It's very comforting for a new mom to know when everything is OK. I would highly recommend this group. If you are ever hosting a baby shower or wondering about a gift for new mom and her family, I would suggest money for doula services. Their services at night let Mom, Dad, siblings and grands get a good night sleep and enjoy the days with the newborn. WHAT A TREAT THAT IS!
