My experience with Stephanie was an awesome one ,shes so down to earth and made me feel comfortable and shared birthing information with me that I didnt even get from my doctor. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially first time moms like myself. She was/is very informative ,and I'd hope to have her as a doula again if I decide to have another baby ??

I am expected to give birth in April 2020. I am lucky to have had a session with Stephanie. She gave me and my husband a birthing 101 session and it was perfect. She carefully explained every stage from the 3rd trimester to the delivery process. I was also able to ask all of the questions I have been struggling (and Googling) with getting answers too. She even told me things I should be asking my doctor and how to prepare for certain scenarios in my last 4 weeks of pregnancy. She was very informative and provided a safe space for myself and my husband to better understand our journey. Thank you Stephanie! You are one in a million. I feel a lot more prpeared for the labor and delivery process.

I was due to deliver in February of 2020 and was in a panic because I hadn't yet found a doula by December. After desperately making calls to different organizations and people, I was matched with Steph... and that's when the blessings started pouring in, in abundance. My significant other and I were expecting our first baby girl and wanted as natural of a birth as possible. Stephanie visited us, informed us of our different options and connected with us on a personal level to the point where we totally comfortable and grateful to have been matched with her. Stephanie was super attentive, checked on me after every doctor's appointment and was consistently there to answer any random questions that I had. Though my birth didn't go as We initially planned due to health complications, Stephanie stayed by my side. Stephanie almost blended in as one of my family members (she cared for me during delivery as if I was). Stephanie literally fed me fruits and water to ensure that I was receiveing the proper nutrients during my birthing experience. Her calming presence and attentiveness helped me to feel at ease during the unexpected turns that we experienced. Through it all, my experience would have been NOTHING without Stephanie, my parents, my significant other's parents and my significant other can all agree with me. To be transparent, when we begin working on baby number 2, Without hesitation... Stephanie will be our doula ... again :)

I'm so blessed that I was able to have Stephanie as my Doula for the brith of my daughter. When I first met  Stephanie I knew she  was such an amazing and caring person. The first day I met her, Stephanie gave my partner and I a helpful advice before  the brith of our daugher. Stephanie always texted me to make sure everything is okay with me, whenever I have a question I will always texted Stephaine. She was always there to help me with my needs. Stephanie checked on me regularly to see how I was doing, during the brith of my daugher and she was right there to help me deal with my contractions, she encourage me throught  the whole brith. Stephanie arrived with a great smile on her face ready to encourage me, she even told me how great  and strong I am.That encouage me a lot. I got induced at 39 weeks, I got a C section. During my C section Stephanie was there by my side. After the brith of my daugher when I was in the recovery room Stephanie came  to see how I was doing. After I left the hospital Stephanie came over at my house,  she helped washed and braid my hair. Stephanie even cook me soup she brought it for me. I would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone that I know who is becoming a mom, I will also love Stephaine to be my doula  if I do get pregant in the future, I will want her  to be by my side.  Thank you Stephanie for all the help and support that you gave me and my partner.

I'm so thankful that I was able to have Stephanie as my Doula for the birth of my daughter. From our first meeting I instantly knew that I would be in good hands and that she was the perfect fit for me. Stephanie gave my partner and I so many helpful tips before our birth that we were able to utilize. She made me feel comfortable and that I would be able to have the birth experience of my choice with her by my side. During birth she was right by my side helping me get through my contractions, she set the mood with having the music played of my choice and also brought her aromatherapy diffuser. When it came time to push Stephanie gave me the perfect most simple instructions to follow so that I was able to make sure I used my energy to get big efficient pushes out which helped me a great deal. I would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone that I know who is giving birth and when I do give birth in the future I'd want to have her by my side again.

Stephanie is a long time friend of mine. I recently had twin girls and although she wasn't my personal doula, she took on the roll of one. She checked in with me regularly to see how I was feeling and asked me questions about my birthing options and posed "what if" questions that I hadn't even thought about or considered discussing with my doctor. I thought I knew everything I needed to know since it wasn't my 1st pregnancy or 1st cesarean. After I had my babies, Stephanie scheduled time to come to my house to clean, cook dinner (which was amazing), do laundry, AND braid my hair. She's amazing at what she does and I'm not only saying that because she's my friend.

Stephanie is by far the best person I have ever met! Without her, I would have never been able to birth my son. She is a gift from heaven, without a doubt. I met her just a few days before my actual due date and only met with her ONCE before it was time for delivery. I couldn't ask for a better doula. I never really knew much about doula's or their purpose but I highly suggest everyone gets one! And request Stephanie! She did a excellent job at keeping me breathing throughout the whole entire labor, holding my hand, putting ice in my mouth, letting me know that I am strong and I can do it. She assisted me through the entire thing and there is nobody else I could have imagined going through it with. I appreciate her more than she may ever know! & Women I strongly suggest investing in a doula. They are amazing at what they do! I love you stephanie!

Stephanie was my doula for my second child. I got induced at 38 weeks after a doctors visit and went straight into labor and delivery. Stephanie arrived promptly; with a smile and ready to assist. She made sure that I was comfortable the entire time, made sure the nurses gave me proper care and even educated me on a few things I was not aware of during my first child’s birth. When it was time to push, she held my hand the entire time and coaxed me through. It was definitely an experience I will never forget. After I had my son, Stephanie was very supportive and came over to make sure we were okay; whether I needed a nap, cleaning, cooking, laundry or even just a good laugh she was there. She’s awesome and I would certainly recommend her being a doula to all my pregnant friends/associates.

Stephanie was a pleasure to work with. She really made my transition to motherhood so smooth. She has a wealth of knowledge and has such great energy. She’s calm and helps to keep your anxiety at bay. When I first met her, she did everything to make sure I was comfortable and she jumped right into her role, not wanting me to do too much to over exert myself at all! She helped me change the baby, hold her so I could use the bathroom and even helped me take my braids out postpartum. The little things you can’t seem to get done once you’re home adjusting to a new baby, she really stepped in to help with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
