Postpartum limits/restrictions: Postpartum care is a service that primarily takes care of the new mom and assisting her as her body heals and her and her partner adjust to the newborn season. That can look differently from family to family. For one it may be taking care of baby while mom showers and takes care of herself. For another it may be light household work that helps set the mom up for success for the rest of the day/week. For some it may be preparing light meals and massage for mom as she rests. It also can include instruction on newborn care. Nighttime it can mean taking care of baby so exhausted parents can have a full nights sleep.

Paige served as our postpartum doula after the birth of our daughter starting in February 2020.  I myself have a disability and require assistance with household chores in addition to child care duties. 

Paige has consistently exceeded my expectations.  We started out by asking for her help with basic child care for our daughter so that I could get some extra sleep while my husband worked.  However, Paige doesn’t feel right about sitting idle while my daughter naps.  Ever since, Paige has washed my dishes, made bottles, done my laundry, cooked meals for us and the baby and done anything else that I can come up with.  She was previously employed as a professional organizer; my closet has never looked better!

She is very professional, arrives for work on time and hates to leave if she hasn’t completed a task.  She provides the same level of care for my daughter as she did for her own three adult children.   If I am being honest, I don’t think that we could have navigated our first few months of parenthood without her.  Any new parents would be lucky to have someone like Paige, especially if they do not have family around to help them learn the ropes.

I have two little ones but never had experience with a doula. So every step of working with Paige was new to me and from the beginning and the end, I was glad I decided work with Paige. 

She was honest with her experiences, her knowledge and what she can offer. She was always willing to listen and learn about me and my birth plan. 

Her prenatal visits gave me not only a lot of information but also ideas of calm and soothe my chaotic pregnancy life with two kids. She was just like a good friend and big auntie. Plus, all the exercise tips she gave me helped me a lot during the last month!

On the day of delivery, she was quick to help me made a right decision to go to hospital with reminding me check things I should bring(thank you from mommy brain!). 

When I saw her at the entrance of hospital it felt like I have my mom on my side. I think that's because she's been a great company through my pregnancy. 

During the labor, she helped me with methods we planned to use and encourged me to choose other options hospital offers. Because my labor was rapid and I wasn't quite conscious because of pain, we didn't have chance to explore all the methods we planned to try but her presence and encouraging words were enough for me. Being there with me, for me and keeping me positive and encourged were what I needed and she did her job 100%. I honestly don't remember most of things that had happened during the labor because I was in great pain but I do remember her encouraging words and gentle massage. What else did I need that time. 

One extra big thanks is because my delivery happened 3-4am I was super tired but thankfully Paige took great photos and videos that me and my family could enjoy. 

To sum up my experience with Paige, she was there for me. That is what I hoped, wanted and needed. My request and wish was fulfilled! Thank you Paige!!

Paige was incredible from start to finish. She is warm and supportive. In a difficult time of having many of my closest friends all move far away from within a 6 month period, she came into my life with light and a smile and provided a sense of family that I deeply needed throughout the experience of birthing our 4th child. I was incredibly successful in my birthing and I managed the pain exponentially better than the other 3 births. I must add, I was apprehensive about having a doula, maybe moreso since I am a person of color. I was moved by this sweet lady who helped me feel welcomed and accepted and even loved more, or gave me a sense of priveldged despite and even in light of my race. She has a heart that can help anyone. I highly recommend Paige for your doula and birthing experience.

Paige was the most amazing person we could have ever hope for during the birth of our first child. My wife wanted a natural birth and neither of us knew what to expect. We started looking around for doulas and after some research, we came across Paige. We spoke with her and a number of other doulas before hiring her. It was very obvious from the first phone call she was the right one.

Paige had so much imperative guidance, emotional support, tips, tricks, ways of explaining the various processes in terms my wife and I could understand and so, so much more. She had a bag of goodies that provided comfort. She knew of massages and different positions to help ease the pain and help align the birth. She was there for us anytime we needed leading up to the birth, including a nightly text message asking us how we were doing. The actual labor lasted 30+ hours and Paige was with us every step of the way. Everyone was exhausted but she was there still championing what we wanted, interacting with the medical staff and ensuring we were comfortable. Paige is thoughtful, kind, patient, knowledgable and guinely cares about mothers, fathers, new borns and new families.

If you are considering a doula, look no further, Paige is the exact person you want.

We were so thankful to have Paige as part of our birth experience for our first child! Before the birth, she shared helpful information about the labor process, how to stimulate labor naturally and reposition the baby, etc. When I was in labor, Paige worked well with my husband and the medical staff to provide both support and comfort for me. Paige is calm, knowledgeable, and experienced. She made a huge difference in helping us have a positive birth experience!
