I live in Minneapolis and Gabi was my secondary over-the-phone doula while I was pregmant and my primary post-pardom doula. Gabi is simply a magical human. She is everything you could ever want from a doula. Gabi flew from California to stay with me, my husband and my son, Leo after he was born. She cooked us delcious, healthy meals, she watched Leo when we needed naps. We'd wake up every mornig with our kitchen and living room all organizd and cleaned up, it felt like a magical cleaning fairy had taken care of whatever we needed without us even noticing! She gave me great suggestions about how to take care of and empower myself. She is very knowledgable about breastfeeding, she offered different techinques and positions. More than anything, it was just wonderful being in her precence after such a tramatic yet exciting and beautiful experience. Gabi has the most loving, positive energy. She makes you feel so comfortable and cared for. I HIGHLY recommend Gabi as a doula!

Having Gabi as my post-partum doula was such a gift. Being a second time mama, who struggled with post-partum depression and breast feeding the first time around I knew I would need additional help bringing baby number two home after a c-section.

My husband I are both so grateful that we had Gabi during the first week we became a family of four. She is patient, thoughtful, and understood my needs – like having warm food ready for me when I was sleep deprived and forgetting to eat.

Her presence is calming, and she is a wonderful listener. If you have a desire to breast feed but maybe need professional support, she is the gal! Gabi was my champion during those first few days. From her I learned how to coach my baby to a comfortable latch and had someone to commiserate while I worked on my supply during those extra pumping sessions.

I would definitely recommend Gabi if this is your first, second, or even third baby! The additional care she provided allowed myself and my husband to focus on bonding with our new baby and helping our older child adjust to his new sibling.

Things I appreciate most about working with Gabi: no judgment regarding any of my choices, amazing understanding of family dynamics, fantastic sense of humor, and continued support after the birth. She also taught me how-to Mari Kondo fold all those baby onesies!

Gabi also has extensive knowledge of natural mama and baby care. If you are looking for someone to help you create a peaceful environment in which to bring your little one home; Gabi is the doula you want by your side.
