Client Testimonials for Karen Goins

Post a testimonial for Karen Goins



Karen stayed with us full time while we were in the US. Karen started the day our daughter was born and helped us set up her room, take me through what I needed to do and know (first time mum) from day one. Very tidy, wonderful carer for our daughter, pleasure to live with. I'd have no hesitation recommending Karen. 



Karen is a wonderful doula! I appreciated how attentive she was in her care of both me and my baby. Her demeanor was always warm and caring. I unhesitatingly recommend Karen as a postpartum doula.
