Louise worked with my family after the birth of my second child. She immediately bonded with my first, who was always very cautious around people unfamiliar to her, and was also a great support to me as I adjusted to life with two kids. Outside of the kids, Louise helped with laundry and cooking, and joined me on trips to the grocery store. We had family coming in and out of town early on, but had no family close by, so having the help that Louise provided was essential. My postpartum experience was so much more relaxed as a result of the time we had with her. We booked her for about 6 weeks total, but spaced it out over the course of a few months. Highly recommend.

I am proud to have Louise as part of my team, as I operate a doula agency. Not only does she have more experience than any other doula professional I know; she is incredibly kind, thoughtful, loving, loyal and passionate about all things family! Integrity is second nature for Louise. Consider yourself blessed to have Louise as your doula.

Louise is nurturing, experienced, and professional. Louise is always improving her skills and looks for ways she can best serve each family she works with. Hiring Louise means hiring someone with top-shelf skills, an outstanding professional reputation and a commitment to upholding your personal values and needs. Plus, she is just a really kind, empathetic person. She makes you feel supported and heard just being around her. Highly recommended.
