Highly recommend Gentle Love Doula for prenatal, birth and postpartum care! I had an absolutely amazing birth experience as well as postpartum with Cynthia. The placenta capsules have been an absolute game changer for my 2nd postpartum journey, I feel like I have a lot of energy & focus. I wish I would’ve done this for my first babe! And the umbilical keepsake was SO cute, I totally didn't expect to see that in with my placenta and salve kit!

Cynthia encapsulated my placenta and was amazing! Our baby was born three weeks early so I hadn't even reached out to her. Once I was in labor, my birth doula connected with her and Cynthia took my placenta right away. Super responsive, polite, and speedy! 
When she delivered the placenta back, it came with a little goody bag, a nice note, and a piece of the cord shaped into a heart. 

loved it all!

Cynthia has been a dream to work with! She gave me all of the confidence I needed to birth without interventions and I credit her supportive skills for why my second baby came nearly a week sooner than my first. Cynthia is calm and confidant and knowledgeable. She loves her clients and goes above and beyond for them. Our whole family was blessed by her support.

Cynthia gave me comfort and confidence throughout my first pregnancy and supported me through the most peaceful and loving home birth. I will be using her for any future pregnancies we may have. My husband appreciated and relied on her just as much as I did. We also utilized a birth tub from her which was a seamless process. After our birth everything was cleaned up, put away, and we were even made a hot meal while we recovered and soaked in our baby.

Cynthia is a fantastic doula whom will take care of your needs during labor and be available to support you emotionally as well during your pregnancy and postpartum. She has a passion for what she does and enters the birth space with your needs and wants in mind. She's well informed on practices and natural interventions or forms of natural pain management during labor. She's very hard working and dedicated to you. She's been with me during two of my births and I wouldn't if been able to accomplish what I did without her support and guidance and gentle reminders to stay calm and relaxed during labor. She offers many services and I'd take advantage of her !! She will help you get through labor and postpartum. She's very quick to respond and be available for you when you need her. I definitely recommend her for your birth.

Cynthia and her services exceeded my expectations (which were already high) by a long shot! She is super thorough, prompt, compassionate and really looks after mama’s and their families. I am so thankful to have found her and I highly highly recommend. She offers a wide range of care which is really nice to be able to find all in one doula. Cynthia threw in some extra goodies with my order and they were so thoughtful. I’ll cherish my first birth forever and I can thank her for a big part of that! Thank you Cynthia<3

Cynthia was amazing! Being pregnant for the first time I didn't know what to expect and it was definitely scary at first. Cynthia was able to answer any questions I had, go over my birth preferences and suggest things that could help my labor and delivery be as smooth as possible. She always made me feel heard and worked with me to make my experience as comfortable as possible. I recommend Cynthia to anyone especially first time moms.

Cynthia is a beautiful soul who was my rock during my Pandemic homebirth. She supported my 4th birth and second homebirth. I am very educated on the topic of birth. But Cynthia brings so much more information that I didn't even know. Having her as your doula will drastically improve your support system. I highly recommend her to everyone I know.

I am incredibly grateful to have had Cynthia as my doula for the birth of my daughter. Being a new parent I had a lot of anxiety and stress regarding the birth process. Cynthia was amazingly professional and provided me with many resources and educational tools to help ease my worried mind. In addition, her caring and compassionate manner helped calm me throughout the entire process. Her willingness to share her own experiences helped to make me feel as if we'd known each other for much longer than a few meetings.

In addition to her support prior to and during the birth, she also offered my husband support and made him feel a part of the process. She has some fantastic ideas for my home birth that really helped to make a difference. I would additionally highly recommend her for placenta encapsulation and lactation support as well. You will not be disappointed in choosing her as your doula. Much love for her and her lovely family!!

Cynthia was very kind and sincere. She was very accessible and answered questions quickly, day and night. She's very knowledgeable about pregnancy, birthing, postpartum and infant care. Cynthia was very inclusive of my partner and was able to communicate with him in Spanish when needed. She also helped me find resources for baby items. When it came time to deliver, she was willing to come to my home when I felt I needed support. She was very supportive of my home birth.

Cynthia served our family as a birth doula for our third child and our first home birth in the time of COVID-19. We found Cynthia to be a calming professional presence who worked very well alongside the midwives. She was very knowledgeable and offered a variety of services. I felt well cared for with Cynthia and would definitely recommend her to any mother needing support during her pregnancy or birth.
