Alice is a treasure and a life-saver! She has a passion and for babies and new mothers that pours from her heart and soul, and brings a sense of peace, support, and calm to your life. I couldn’t have navigated through the start of motherhood without her support, wisdom, and help.
She comes with experience, expertise, compassion, and a bright smile that will immediately put you at ease and reassure you that you have made the right choice. In addition to all of the regular doula tasks that are provided, Alice has a special gift for knowing how to bolster and support mamas in a way that allows them to tap into their own strength and confidence. This quality was particularly helpful at a time I was at my lowest --feeling maximum amounts of stress, exhaustion, and anxiousness.
A fun bonus is that Alice has a particular knack for knowing how to dress/create outfits for all kinds of body shapes and sizes. She knows how to highlight your assets while minimizing areas you’d rather notice --all with the clothes in your own closet, or with simple suggestions of items to purchase.
It’s a win-win with Alice --happy baby, confident and rested mom, and wardrobe help to boot!
Alice came to our family to help care for our infant twins and my wife who was trying to manage postpartum depression. She immediately had a calming presence with our children, but was also so offering tips and techniques for my wife to feel confident in her abilities as a mom. She is supportive and knowledgable for us, and warm, energetic and patient with our children. She's also a former teacher who has been great at educating our children and is always coming up with new activities with our toys to practice new skills. We only stopped working with her because we moved, otherwise she would've ideally remained a part of our family for years to come.
I highly recommend Alice to anyone's growing family.
I met Alice while visiting my daughter. Since I live a few thousand miles away, my visits were often and a week each visit. When my daughter told me she was hiring a Doula named Alice, I was hoping and praying that this lady would love and care for my grand babies and my daughter just like I would. Alice met and exceeded my expectations. In fact, I would like to share my thoughts and feelilngs for Alice.
Lets talk about smart, educated, kind, loving, caring, nurturing, concerned, compassionate, passionate, humble, prompt, reliable and helpful- these are just a few words that describe Alice. Not only was she this way with our twin grand babies, but she was all of these with our daughter who struggled with Post partum depression. Each day she was there, she truly wanted to make sure that our daughter was doing ok. Alice made a huge difference.
Lets talk about the twins and how she engaged with them. She was amazing! You would have thought these babies were hers. She truly, truly loves them. She would sing to them, read to them, play with them, cuddle them, feed them, care for them while sick or teething and she always, always did it with love. When the babies napped, she spent quality and much needed time with my daughter. She did anything and everything she could do to help my daugher adjust to being a new twin mom.
If you happen to be the lucky family who gets to have Alice as your Doula- All I can say is that you will be the most blessed family on the planet. Alice became family to my daughter. I know that they're both so sad that my daughter is moving, but I can tell you that they will be friends forever! Alice didn't just do business with our daughter, she did life with our daughther. And to Alice, I will be forever grateful!!!
Alice was essential to my post-partum care and infant support during the time we worked with her. We have boy/girl premature twins and I needed a doula and infant support from someone that felt confident, didn't get flustered with multiples and was able to support me as a new mother dealing with post-partum depression/anxiety. The first time I met her, she immediately brought a calming energy into our home and in the last 8 months she has continued to do just that.
Alice is punctual, dependable and a natural nurturer. She began her pp-doula care with our family when our twins were very small - I knew I needed someone that felt confident and calm handling multiples with some residing preemie issues.
In a nutshell, here are our favorite things about her: - Knowlege and everything she taught me as a new mother. -Constant support to make our lives easier. - her engagement with my children. Always finding ways to engage them in appropriately developmental ways. - reliable and punctual. - her honesty - her compassion - proactive mentality. She was always looking for ways to make our house more presentable than when she arrived. Always had formula ready and bottles clean before she left - her creativity to engage my children.
Overall, you would be so lucky to have Alice as part of your life. We wish we could take her with us, but unfortuantely our family is relocating.
