I don't know what I would have done without Becky! She provided incredible support through pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum. During my pregnancy, Becky visited with various resources, was extremely organized, and asked meaningful questions to help prepare me for delivery and beyond, all with her warm/positive energy. Then, my little one decided to come a few weeks early; my water broke, and the first person I called was Becky. She immediately picked up, and calmly coached me through the next steps. I didn't get a chance to practice birthing positions/breathing exercises, but felt reassured with Becky guiding me every second. She not only guided me, but assisted my husband and the nurse. Postpartum, she introduced me to local communities/resources and answered my endless breastfeeding/child development questions. Thank you, Becky, for everything!!!

My husband and I had a great experience in hiring Becky as our doula. As first time parents we wanted support throughout my pregnancy. She was always available to answer questions via text or a phone call. She checked in regularly to see how I was doing and how my appointments went. Further, her advice and the resources she shared with us were invaluable.

Becky is kind and has a great sense of humor, but most importantly, she is affirmative. Her personality and doula experience helped me get through the most difficult parts of my labor.

Becky goes above and beyond with her doula service. Although hiring any doula can be a big expense, looking back, it was a great investment. I had heard stories about mommas traumatized by their labor experience, and it was something I absolutely wanted to avoid. Becky educated us on what to expect during labor, what are options were, and how to advocate for ourselves. We felt truly prepared as first time parents because of the investment we made in hiring Becky. I highly recommend booking her for doula service!!

I am so glad I found Becky to support my family for the arrival of our first baby. I am 2 weeks postpartum and am very grateful for the guidance provided by Becky during my pregnancy and labor & delivery. She is nurturing, informative, direct, and neutral (does not impose anything on you, instead she asks the right questions to understand your POV). We covered so many topics during our meetings and she made sure to focus them to things that were important to our family, its not a one size fits all approach, she really takes the time to understand what your needs are. Some of the topics we covered were the birthing experience, how to develop a birth plan, pain relief techniques, helped install our carseat, what to expect postpartum and how to plan for it, and breastfeeding insights. Becky also shared great resources and was an amazing ear to me when I was struggling the first few days after being home. She genuinely cares about providing families what they need to have the birth experience they envision regardless of what that looks like. During my L&D she was so calm and reassuring and helped my partner and I focus on getting through each contraction. When we were at the hospital she kept me focused through the pain and helped me find my voice with hospital staff. I really believe having Becky by our side helped us have the birth experience we wanted, and the things that went off plan (as they do) were embraced because we were well prepared and open to the fact that things don't always go as planned. I would absolutely recommend Becky to support your family through your birth experience.

Becky was so essential in me having a successful unmedidicated birth despite needing an induction. During the process of pregnancy Becky was great about checking in and providing my partner and I support through the process and how to help me through pains of pregnancy and labor. Towards the end of pregnancy when my blood pressures and anxiety started to spike she reminded me that I was empowered to have the labor and delivery I wanted. I cannot recommend Becky enough as a she also comes with an abundance of knowledge regarding car seat installation, lactation support, and resources that you will need through pregnancy and beyond. Becky came into my laboring room and made it so peaceful and helped me find positions that worked for me. While most inductions last 24-36 hrs for first time moms I truly believe that the recommendations Becky made and I did before pregnancy and during labor helped me deliver in 15hrs from the time I was admitted. Overall, having Becky as a support was the best experience ever!

I was a very nervous first time mom. Even though I knew the basics of what was going to happen, I still really wanted a doula and I'm so glad I found Becky! She was such a wonderful resource throughout my whole pregnancy. I was very prepared for labor and understood at length the medical terms my doctor and nurses were using when it was my time. With Becky's guidance, I was able to stay calm and make educated choices that were best for myself and my baby. Had I not had Becky as my doula, my birth experience would not have gone the same way and I most likely would have had an unnecessary emergency c section. Instead I was able to really advocate for myself and make informed decisions and ask questions to the medical team. Since it was during Covid I was only allowed two people in the room with me so I brought my husband and my mom but Becky was on speed dial! And I used all of her tips and tricks to help get me through. After being induced, I labored and while it took a while as it sometimes does for first time moms, I knew as much as I could in terms of what to expect because of Becky and therefore what I could do to help myself get through it to meet my baby. She reviewed plans A-Z during our one on one education sessions. After I gave birth, she was also very kind to check on me and do a follow up visit. She provided me with countless resources, including people with businesses in the community nearby such as massage therapists, lactation consultants, pelvic floor therapists, pediatrician recommendations, etc. this helped me tremendously as a new mom. If I ever have another baby, I'll definitely be calling Becky to be there for me as my doula!

Becky was an amazing source of support during and after my pregnancy. She guided us through what to expect and how to best prepare for my personal goals for my labor. I texted her daily and she always responded with compassion and support. She visited several times and always included our whole family, including my 4 year old. She is not only a wealth of knowledge, but also so thoughtful. Pregnancy, labor, and postpartum are such intimate experiences and Becky's approach is so comforting she feels like family.
