Donminique Boyd

I am so grateful for the experience I had with Antonique. After battling so many entities during my pregnancy, I was blessed to always be reassured that my feelings were not strange when I consulted with Antonique. She was truly a breath of fresh air that was always patient and generous with the information she had on hand. I feel like I had more than a doula but a friend in Antonique. For that, I'm so blessed.
