Lisa L

Anna has been a delight to work with in our home and caring for my newborn. Having her help following my return home after a difficult labour and hospital staff made a huge difference in my recovery and ability to cope with all the changes that come with having a meet the needs of a new baby. She has been gentle and attentitive to both my baby's and my needs, willing to help with whatever requests I've asked ranging from feeding, bathing and changing my son to finding/arranging a used breast pump purchase online to chopping veggies, preparing great meals, and cleaning. She's extraordinarily diligent, reliable and communicates well regarding her commitment to our family and any changes to her availability.She brings her calm kind energy into our home while being productive with her tasks. I always have a smile on my face after she's spent time in our home. I trust her with my child and feel confident giving her the higest recommendation. I admit I was hesitant at first due to her younger age compared to most doulas, but she has a maturity and professionalism beyond her years.

I cannot say enough good things about Anna!

Anna helped me in the evenings with my 20 month old when my husband was away working overseas. She was great with my daughter, organized, positive, flexible and knowledgeable. She was very helpful around the house- quick to learn and took initiative with a variety of tasks so my family’s evenings went smooth.

I am so glad I connected with her and could not have asked for anything more in our ‘mother’s helper’. We are so thankful and would love to bring her on again in the future. We would absolutely recommend Anna to anyone looking for a Doula!
