My first labor and delivery was a very empowering experience. Shay was very informative and motivating throughout my entire pregnancy. She checked in with me regularly to make sure she was informed of anything that was discussed during my OB appointments. Shay showed us different techniques to help regulate labor pain which were very effective. She was also very honest about what to expect during labor and how to manage my expectations. Shay made sure that I was comfortable during my labor and delivery and also made sure the baby and I were safe and secure once delivered before leaving. I look forward to working with Shay again in the future.



Shay was AMAZING! I realized late in my pregnancy I wasn't getting the support I felt I needed, in a pandemic, from my provider. I switched to a midwife, and Shay as my doula. She provided a comprehensive birth education course that helped me understand WHY my body would feel a certain way during the birthing process. 

Due to hospital guidelines she was unable to be in the hospital, but was available via phone during my delivery. She affirmed that I should TRUST MY BODY & I had a smooth birth with baby pretty much delivering herself before my midwife could really get her gloves on.


Knowing the WHY behind the pain I was experiencing helped me not to get lost in pain or fear. She taught my partner to be my advocate in her absence and I would recommend her to any expectant mother.

Working with Shay was nothing short of an amazing experience for me. As a first time mom, pregnancy and all that comes along with it can be an exhilarating journey that leaves us first-timers with loads of questions! It was beyond invaluable to have Shay’s expertise to help guide me through my experience and into motherhood. The most significant aspect that I appreciated from Shay was her total respect of all my privacy wishes while still giving me as much support as I needed, whenever I needed it. I would absolutely recommend her doula services to any new mom looking for the best support!!!

So Shay was by far the calmest person on my birth team. I contracted her around the 20ish week mark and she hit the ground running. She presented information in an easy to understand way. She was never forceful only informative. She always presented a second unbiased opinion and then asked what I thought. The fact that she always checked on my mental health means SOOO much to me, especially during this time of COVID-19. Though she couldn't paystubs there with me because of the pandemic she was constantly checking in and making sure I was calm. I honestly could not have done a natural birth without her support.
