I recently had the pleasure of working with Avalyn, and I cannot recommend her enough! From our first meeting, I knew that Avalyn was the perfect fit for my wife and me.

Throughout my wife's pregnancy, Avalyn was always available to answer any questions we had and provided us with helpful resources to prepare for childbirth. She also checked in with us regularly to see how we were feeling and offered emotional support.

During labor, Avalyn was an absolute rockstar. She helped my wife navigate through General pregnancy discomfort, provided comfort measures, and was a great sounding board when needed. Her calming presence and expertise made all the difference during what could have been a stressful and overwhelming experience.

After the birth of our baby, Avalyn continued to support us with postpartum care. She checked in with us regularly, provided post-birth support, and even helped with light housekeeping tasks. Her dedication to our well-being was truly above and beyond.

Overall, I cannot recommend Avalyn enough to anyone looking for a doula. Her knowledge, expertise, and unwavering support made my wife's childbirth experience a truly positive one. Thank you, Avalyn!

I still can't believe I had a compeltely unmedicated birth with my second child! How I wish I knew Avalyn when I had my first child! Avalyn was so helpful and encouraging throughout my pregnancy and delivery. She is the reason why I was willing and able to trust my body to give birth to my child without using epidural. She visited me during my second and third trimesters and shared resources that are research-based and informative. She also showed me techniques to relax my body and cope with the pain. The breathing techniques came handy when my labor started. I was able to breathe through most of my dialation process, when I arrived at the hospital on that Friday night, I was already 6/7 centimeters dialated. Three hours later I had my daughter. Avalyn was by my side, she reminded me to continue to breathe, massaged my body, offered me water, and held my hands whenever I needed support... Comparing to my first birthing experience (I had both pictocin and epidural), this time I was able to trust my body to pass each contraction, to rest, and to push. I recovered so much faster after the delievery. Not only Avalyn's encouraging words made a huge difference, so did her professional training for being a doula. She encouraged me to speak up for myself and my child, and helped me understand how my body works through professional rescources. I would not have done it without her support! Other than my husband, she is the first person who got to meet my daughter, so she will always hold a special place in our family. If you are thinking about hiring a doula, don't hesitate to reach out to Avalyn, she is absolutely wonderful!

Avalyn was such a kind, supportive presence during the birth of my third baby. She’s professional and confident. Our prenatal meetings were thorough and not rushed. She never made me feel pressured or “watched” when I went four days past my due date or when my early labor stretched out over 24 hours. One of Avalyn’s great skills as a doula is showing up when you need her and giving you space when you need space. She is experienced with hands on comfort measures. She cares deeply about working well with the hospital staff and other care providers. She did a great job of matching the energy in the delivery room, following my lead and letting me be in charge of my birth. She laughed at my jokes and made me feel like a rockstar. It was a delight to have her on my birth team.

Avalyn has a calm, steady energy that is so needed. She has supported me for two of my babies. Her prenatal care is wonderful, she helped me prep meals for postpartum, she walked me through exercises to help get baby in the best position, she listened to me and helped me relax when baby went past due. She is great with the big kids too! Mine love her!! Can't recommend her enough!

Avalyn Collier is a fantastic doula! The birth of my son was enhanced greatly by her presence. My husband and I are first time parents and despite the amount of personal reading I had done to prepare, I know we couldn’t have had as successful of a birth as I’d wanted on our own. She guided us through questions in preparation weeks ahead. She gave selflessly of  herself over and above her call of duty, in time and service. When a pain would come,  Avalyn guided my husband in ways to help me and also brought in additional measures herself when possible. She made sure the midwife knew I wanted to see my son's head in the mirror when it was time. Postpartum, Avalyn cared for me in ways no other in the room knew I needed. She checked in and asked the necessary questions. 

I highly recommend Avalyn Collier as a birth doula to any expecting family.
