Yvette was the best Doula we could ask for! I started looking pretty early on not knowing exactly what a Doula was or what exactly they did I just knew I wanted one! She was great from day one explaining everything to us and making sure we got all the support we needed. Throughout pregnancy she helped keep me sane and prepared me, my fiancé and my son for childbirth and how to make it through as well as what to expect! Her passion for her VERY ESSENTIAL role in childbirth is unmatched and made me feel more comfortable with having a natural water birth! Once finally in labor Eve was there every step of the way! She made sure my fiancé didn't annoy me too much(lol) and kept reminding me of my affirmations. Getting closer and closer to delivery I was ready to give up! However, about a couple weeks or so before my due date at my Blessing Way, she had recordings made from my support system giving me more encouraging words. At the moment I thought I couldn't do it anymore she played them for me. Those encouraging words helped me push through my pain and deliver a healthy baby boy! The postpartum care has been wonderful as well. Helping me to understand what is actually realistic to expect during the first few weeks from my newborn and feeling less like I don't know what I'm doing. I could go on and on but bottom line is idk how I could have ever gone through this birth without her! I will definitely be using her services for my next pregnancy and I recommend anyone I can!

The day me and my Fiancée net Yve it was like she was part of the family! With here help and support I was more confident in help my partner through the birth of our Handsome son! She was there every step of the way from the time we called her and said we would like to meet you for the possibility of being out Doula! I say this because as a first time father I had questions every time we met with Yve. I'm pretty sure most time the father think that the doula is just for the mother's support but Yve made it very clear that she was there for the both of us! I really appreciated that. So my love for Yve has grown to the point that she is our son's doula mama and she earned that title with grace and pride ! So thank you Yve for the continued support!

I will have babies over and over if I have Eve Birth Services by my side. Yvette goes over and above for her clients and spent so time checking on me, helping me through prenatal anxiety, educating and encouraging me as I prepared for birth. Unexpectedly the COVID-19 pandemic occurred two months before my due date. My anxiety and the uncertainty of having my doulas was high, but Yvette kept me updated and helped me find alternatives to labor with her as long as possible before going to the hospital. Our prenatals were thorough and educational and gave my husband a stronger confidence for the end of labor which was the most unsure part for us. Once I went into labor, Yve didn’t miss a beat. She stayed up to date with my husband and came as soon as active labor hit. When she arrived, I fell into her arms because I trusted her and knew she was there just for me to help me bring my son into the world. We headed to the hospital and said our goodbyes Yve communicated with my husband for virtual labor support. I always felt her presence with me until the time I roared my baby out. I’m forever grateful for this powerful and knowledgeable doula and couldn’t have had the birth I did without her.

My husband and I are so happy and blessed to have been connected with Eve. From our first conversation, I appreciated her sense of calm and undeniable knowledge-base on prenatal and postnatal care. She’s been incredibly flexible with the services she’s willing to provide to me and my family that truly fits our needs. She’s been a God-sent with assisting with my post-natal care along with me learning how to be the best first-time mommy I can be. I highly recommend her for her top-notch level of professionalism, ease of access with communicating with her and quick responsiveness, extremely knowledgeable and uses this information to encourage you to make the best decision for you, makes quality referrals to fit your needs, and overall just loves on you and provides you with the support you didn’t even know you needed. You can’t go wrong with Eve.
