From our first interaction, Liz set herself apart as an exceptional doula. Her quick and attentive responses to our calls and texts gave us comfort and confidence in her commitment. Liz's willingness to be by our side at a moment's notice, making house visits whenever we needed her support, was beyond what we could ever hoped for.

During early labor, Liz was the first to arrive our house. From the moment contractions began, she was there, bringing comfort and calm with her pain management techniques. Her presence was not just a source of emotional support; she played a crucial role in ensuring our voices were heard, effectively helping us communicate with our midwife and advocating for our needs.

Liz's familiarity with the hospital also proved invaluable, guiding us seamlessly through the hospital hallways to where we needed to be. When faced with the unexpected delay of the epidural, her presence and care were the reassurances we needed to endure the long hours.

Liz was with us every step of the way during labor. She even helped guide the nurses, suggesting different birthing positions. She also captured the precious moments of our baby's first arrival in beautiful photos and videos. Her commitment didn't end with the birth; the postpartum visits with homemade soup and her ever-present support through calls and texts, were a testament to her passion and dedication. Liz was there to guide us through the challenging first couple of weeks at home, offering advice on everything from burping the baby to breastfeeding.

We are eternally grateful for Liz's support, guidance, and heartfelt care. Her involvement made our journey into parenthood not just manageable, but a cherished experience. We could not have done this without Liz. We are looking forward to having Liz by our side for our next adventure into parenthood. For anyone seeking a doula who is responsive, knowledgeable, and dedicated, we cannot recommend Liz highly enough!

We decided to work with Liz for the birth of our 2nd child, and she was fantastic! Before the birth, Liz came over to our house a couple times to chat about my previous labour and birth, our preferences this time around, and just generally getting to know each other. I updated her about my pregnancy via text, and we stayed in touch. Once labour started, Liz was such a wonderful support via text, phone, and in-person through a long eaely labour and even getting sent home from the hospital. Then in active labour, she had magic hands that helped me cope with the contractions so much better! She was by our side, supporting me and my husband as our son was born. In postpartum, she visited us at home and brought us homemade soup. And she was there to help and support us when we encountered challenges with breastfeeding a few weeks later too. Liz is a wonderful and supportive doula!
