To make things short and sweet, Amethyst is wonderful and she has our highest recommendation!! 

Amethyst is the "baby whisperer"! She has an amazing way with newborns and through our time together she has taught me so much. We hired Amethyst for post partum doula support but she also ended up being a lifesaver for us when I had to be readmitted to the hospital one week after giving birth. She came to the hospital to help take care of my daughter at a moment's notice and helped us with a very difficult situation. As my husband says, Amethyst is "in it for the team." She is an advocate for her clients and all around a caring, knowledgeable, reliable, and supportive person. I can't  say enough about how much I valued her presence both in the hospital and later during our overnights at home. Recovering from a c-section was so much easier with her help, and I cannot overstate how restorative it was to have her for overnight post partum support.  I will always be grateful to her, and so happy we found Amethyst!!

For as long as I live, I will forever be thankful that this amazing human being - Ms. Amethyst Beach - exists. I don't know what I would have done if she wasn't my doula. (Probably a mental breakdown!)

She helped guide this scared new first time mom out of a long labor + induction. My labor was fought with more than a few too unexpected bumps in the road...on top of the Coronavirus pandemic! I owe her my sanity during those 30+ hours of labor.

She's a hero to me, just like all the medical workers on the front line. On top of all that, she's a kick ass doula period!

She was actually my fill in doula last minute and I was so nervous since I knew nothing about her. But her communication was spot on and she arrived at the hospital right on time, gauged the situation, and jumped into action right away. She's a definite pro!

She could take a peek at the hospital charts/graphs to lend me and my husband more insight of labor progression when all the nurses were busy. She understand the hospital lingo. She knew the best positions for me and baby. She was there for the entire labor and radiated positive energy. All around, just an amazing, trusted source for me and my husband.

Her little massages are amazing, she knew exactly where to go to relieve the tension and pain of labor - even if it's just the littlest touches. She has that magic touch.

If it wasn't for her, I think my husband would definitely be in big trouble. (I love him but he freezes up under pressure and labor is very VERY intense!)

TL;DR - You NEED Amethyst.

A doula isn't just for the birthing woman, it's just as much for the support person! A doula shouldn't be something optional. They've been statistically shown to decrease labor time and c-section rates - which I can definitely see would have happened if I went in without a doula like Amethyst. Her service is worth every single penny spent and then some!

Amethyst was absolutely wonderful to work with and our labor and delivery wouldn't have been the same without her. She took the time to sit down with us a few times prior to the delivery and made sure to understand our birth plan along with any preferences we had, and ensured to stay in communication with us during the weeks leading up to the delivery. Amethyst came to the hospital and stayed with us overnight through the challenging parts of labor, utilizing various massaging techniques to distract from the contractions, which I really enjoyed. She was extremely supportive throughout the whole labor process and so encouraging through the delivery of our healthy baby boy. Thank you so much, Amethyst, for playing an integral role in the birth of our baby!

Amie was such an amazing addition to our birthing team!


She jumped in last minute and responded to a desperate Facebook post asking if there was anyone who could help us. We had been in labor for several hours, the pain was getting more intense, and just didn't have enough hands to do everything.


When she arrived, she knew exactly what to do and her support allowed my husband to support me in other ways. She also worked well with our midwives and was extremely thoughtful about being supportive without being invasive. Whenever I had a need, she was super responsive and we're so thankful to God that she was able to be there!


When looking back the birth of our first baby, Amie is a key part of that story and she is truly gifted in supporting others. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a doula who genuinely cares for others. 

Thanks Amie!
