Stacey is an absolutely incredible, trustworthy, caring and kind human being who we welcomed into our home 1.5 months post partum with our first baby. She was an invaluable part of my recovery process and I'm forever grateful for her dedication and support. She is in the most perfect role as a postpartum doula and taught me so much as a new mom. She is the reason we were able to really learn our babies cues and provided the most perfect resources to us as we navigated challenging moments. We continue to sing her praises and would highly recommend her to any family seeking post partum support. We will continue to seek her amazing support as we grow our family. Words can't express how truly thankful we are for her helping hand!

Stacey has been amazing. I'm a first time mom with no family in the surrounding area, but she's helped me feel so much more confident that my baby's doing well. She also goes above and beyond and will bring extra little tidbits, like books, about something I've felt anxious about. I was nervous about going back to work at nine weeks postpartum, but  she took excellent care of my son and eased the "going back to work" anxiety. My son got a little bit of stranger danger after his baptism and all the family that came in, and Stacey's helped him work through all of that.
She's flexible with whatever parenting style you choose, professional, and kind. If I had to go back, I would definitely pick her again.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Stacey. She came to work with us when our son was about 2 months old. We were not sleeping, my husband was about to head back to work, and we were desperate for help. Our son was colicky and dealing with a lot of infant reflux, which made him very uncomfortable and affected his sleeping and eating.

Stacey was immediately a calming and supportive presence. She treated our son like her own and was gentle, kind, and patient with all of us. She helped us get him on a sleep schedule during the day, suggested new toys and activities for him, and helped us troubleshoot our son’s reflux. She also helped with laundry, dishes, and batching bottles, and always left our house neat and tidy. She was also very comfortable with our big (anxious) dog who was adjusting to new people and a new baby brother. We were very comfortable with her in our home and genuinely enjoyed her company. She was also flexible with her schedule, which we greatly appreciated.

Stacey worked with us for two months and by the end of our time together our son was a much happier baby, he was sleeping in his crib for naps during the day, and we were on a routine and had more confidence as new parents. Stacey was a great resource for us and I whole-heartedly recommend her!

Stacey was a game changer for me in the days following the birth of my first daughter. Investing in a postpartum doula was the single best thing i did for myself in the postpartum days.

While it was only a few short weeks, working with Stacey had an immeasurably positive impact on my overall mental and physical health. The days Stacey came by my home gave me time to shift my own focus from taking care of the baby to taking care of myself. 

My husband returned to work after a short paternity leave, and I was home alone with my baby and not yet feeling confident. We hadn't yet perfected her latch for breastfeeding, and I was trying to juggle pumping every 2 to 3 hours to keep my supply up, feed the baby (latch first, followed by bottled breastmik) and taking care of a baby who only wanted contact naps. During long nights with a newborn where I desperately needed sleep, I would look forward to the days Stacey would join me so I could get some much-needed rest. Stacey helped with dishes, folded and put away my baby's laundry, she helped take care of the baby while I got some rest (or needed a minute to myself to grab a quick cup of coffee). She gave me so many valuable tips and tricks for breastfeeding and taking care of my baby (nap recommendations, swaddling recommendations etc ) and was such a warm presence in the sometimes isolating "fourth trimester." She helped me feel confident in taking care of my baby alone. As a first-time mom, those first days alone felt overwhelming and scary. I am so happy she was part of our home during that precious time. Those first months as a new parent can feel overwhelming and Stacey is the best person to help support you and whatever you need to make sure you're happy so you can be your best self for your baby.

Stacey was the best thing that ever happened to us when we brought our newborn home. From helping with bath time to doing light chores such as laundry and organizing to watching our daughter so I could take a nap, she helped me through the toughest days. Having another experienced mom in the house was a blessing. Just being able to sit and talk or take a walk with Stacey was a nice treat. She also spent time with my husband and helped helped him gain confidence with handling our daughter. I recommend Stacey to every mom I know. She is a true blessing to the doula world!

Stacey was incredibly helpful during our post partum period. She was with us weeks 8 - 24 and we could not have been in better hands. Her guidance and help to keep us running smoothly was cherished and provided much relief. Not only were we first time parents but work transition and moving into a new house things were chaotic and Stacey helped us get through it. Her passion comes through in the way she took care of myself and our son that I am forever grateful. We will be seeking her help again for baby 2!

Stacey from Southern RI Doula immensely supported my family after the birth of our children and throughout their toddlerhoods. I couldn't recommend someone better! She was incredibly respectful of our wishes and parenting preferences, always asking questions beforehand. She is a kind and gentle soul who loves babies and children, going above and beyond our expectations. I highly recommend Stacey as a postpartum doula!

Having the support Stacey provided was instrumental for us as first time parents. Our first visit with her was just a few days after bringing our baby boy home from the hospital. She helped us establish routines that  set us up for success from the very beginning - from prepping bottles to setting changing and nursing stations. She was a calming presence and gave us great insights and encouragement with breastfeeding, sleeping, and other care for our life with our newborn. I really think our mental health was positively impacted by having her around in the first few months of our sons life and she helped us feel at ease as new parents!

Stacey is nothing short of amazing. As a first time parent who predominantly works from home, I was struggling to balance it all. I was nervous at first to bring someone in but after just the first phone call with Stacey, I felt instantly at ease. She is highly professional, caring, respectful and prompt. She came to meet my husband and I and we immediately felt it was a fantastic fit. My 8 month old daugther Eleanor absolutley adores her. She makes the most of their time together, singing, playing, reading books, sitting outside in nature or going to the park. She is also wonderful with our golden retriever Cleo, who sometimes needs more attention then the baby. Stacey is incredibly helpful to me as well, helping me learn things as a new Mom and always having suggestions and thoughts on how to handle the next steps in my daughter's life. We trust her explicitly and feel she has become a part of our family and a true friend. You will be very lucky to have Stacey working with your family, we certainly feel that way and couldn't recommend her more.
