Becky was so helpful, kind and patient with us throughout my pregnancy and especially our birth of our son! My husband and I look back and don’t know what we would have done without her! Even after now having gone through a pregnancy and birthing experience, I would choose to work with Becky in a heartbeat for my second child. We opted to do 1:1 classes for newborn and birthing and the flexibility that it allowed for and ability to have any and all questions asked has proven to be helpful in the real life scenarios. I can look back at my birthing experience and have no regrets or sadness attached which I often hear other mothers have had. Ive felt prepared for my newborn caregiving and ability to make informative decisions overall for my baby and my own health! Thank you so much Becky!!!!!

We are so grateful to have found Becky to work with as our birth and postpartum doula! We were very grateful for her advice during my pregnancy and felt her guidance and presence led to a better overall delivery experience. We also worked with her for overnights in the weeks after our daughter was born and she was an invaluable asset for us during that time - helping us get comfortable with both breast and bottle-feeding, giving us care tips, referring us to other resources, and generally providing a supportive and helpful presence. The first few weeks postpartum were definitely more manageable and enjoyable because of her and my husband and I would happily recommend her services!

Becky was a stellar presence during labor and delivery. She met us at the hospital and immediately helped calm me down by walking me through proper breathing technique, during the most intense part of labor she helped my partner keep me comfortable by massage and applying pressure where needed.

In her prenatal visits she taught us several comfort measures and helped us strategize with the birth plan. Becky is an MVP when it comes to knowing how to labor well and preparing you for life with a newborn!

Having Becky as a doula was such a wonderful experience! She prepared us for labor and delivery, we felt confident in what to do/ questions to ask when things got overwhelming in the delivery room. Becky is a very caring and compassionate person, she made us feel extremely comfortable throughout our pregnancy experience. She shared her knowledge with us and helped us create a birth preference. Her tips and tricks helped us prepare for birth, delivery, and postpartum. I highly recommend using Becky as a doula!

Could not recommend enough! Becky brought my husband and I so much comfort and support. It was my first birth, and she really prepped us for all of the possible scenarios and options and helped me feel as prepared as I could be leading up to it. She also came by an in-home c section consult and provided so many tips which were excellent for my recovery. Highly recommend if you're looking for a doula!

My partner and I worked with Becky as our birth doula. In our preparatory sessions, she helped us talk through and document my birth preferences, and taught hands-on comfort measures my partner could use to support me while laboring at home. Becky was super available towards the end of my pregnancy, checking in with us regularly and responding promptly to questions and concerns. When Becky joined us at the hospital, she helped me to stay comfortable and helped me to remember and communicate my preferences to the birth team so that I didn't forget anything important in the moment. My partner also felt very supported. - In fact, he had never heard of a doula before we decided to work with Becky, and in the end he said that this was one of the best decisions we made! I highly recommend working with Becky if you are looking for a birth doula in the Boston area!

My husband and I are so happy we went with Becky as our doula. After interviewing a couple of recommended Boston doulas, I felt her background and personality connected with us the best. She’s easy to talk to and listens to what we want and expect. This was my first pregnancy so we weren’t sure what to expect and we felt it would be comforting to have a familiar face in the delivery room as hospitals can be very overwhelming. Becky came to our house twice before delivery and went over our birth plan very thoroughly. Who knew there were so many options and decisions that can be made? For the actual delivery, I can’t express how grateful we are that Becky was there to support us through the whole time. She helped us stick to our birth plan as much as possible. She helped me stretch, do exercises to keep comfortable, and her massages are great. I would hire again just for the amazing massages. If we decide to have another, I will definitely hire Becky again.
