I had not originally planned to hire a night Doula, but quickly realized that I needed help after an unplanned c-section and overwhelming exhaustion. Hiring Petra made a world of difference for me. She helped my husband and me to rest and reset a few nights per week, which gave me the energy (and sanity) we needed to last the days and nights she was not with us.
Petra brought a warm, calm, and nurturing energy into our home. I could immediately see the gentle and confident care she took with our baby and I was able to sleep soundly at night knowing he was with her. When I woke up to feed him, she gave me advice on his care and nursing, and did so in a way that was welcome. She showed both expertise and empathy for me as a new, first time mother. I not only learned from her but also genuinely enjoyed spending time with her at night.
Petra also consistently went above and beyond -- for example, by offering to pick up items from the store (sometimes generously bringing items that I didn't know I needed!), preparing snacks in the middle of the night, tidying up the nursery and folding baby laundry. She arrived with her own branded notebooks and pens, and took notes throughout the night that I could reference in the morning. I was always impressed and grateful.
Petra will not only will take excellent care of your baby but also of you! I would recommend her to every new mother if I could.
