Client Testimonials for Erica Shane Childbirth ~ Seasoned Doula

5/9/2014

We had our daughter in August 2012, and since we have no family in the U.S., we asked Erica to help us during the first few months as new parents.

Erica met us a few hours after we came home with the baby. From then on, she visited us almost every other day for several hours each time.

For us, Erica was like the sister we wished we had in New York. I (the mom) could talk about any issues I was experiencing with the baby (how to swaddle her - Erica is the best swaddler!! - how to rock her to sleep, breast feeding troubles - for which she had an array of natural remedies that healed my nipples!) and with my body after the delivery (various kinds of oils to apply, beautiful bath salts with flowers, relaxing foot massages...)

Erica was also an amazing chef who knew what nutrients to provide to a new mother (who couldn't be standing too long to cook by herself.) She also helped me take naps, tending to the baby while I snoozed.

We wholeheartedly recommend Erica to any new parents, but especially to those who don't have any family members nearby to help them during some of the toughest weeks at the beginning.
