Mindy was absolutely wonderful! She came over to our home and sat with us as we navigated the exciting yet daunting task of planning for our growing family and household. From the moment she arrived, her warmth and professionalism were shining through.

Throughout our discussions, Mindy exhibited remarkable patience, care, and objectivity. Her approach was incredibly insightful, pointing out considerations we hadn't even thought of before. What impressed us most was her gentle yet assertive delivery of information. Mindy's guidance was informative and practical, delivered with a reassuring touch that will continue to help us to make informed decisions moving forward. 

We are immensely grateful for Mindy's support and guidance during this important phase of our lives. Her expertise is truly invaluable, and we wholeheartedly recommend her to any future moms seeking guidance and clarity. Mindy is not just a consultant; she is a trusted ally on this journey of parenthood and home management. We look forward to referring her to others with excitement and confidence. Thank you, Mindy, for your exceptional help and unwavering support!

Warm regards,

Mimi and Garland Porter

We're so grateful to have have found Mindy as our postpartum doula. Our guy loved spending time with her and I was able to get the recovery rest I needed knowing he was in great hands. The knowledge she brought was invaluable. Even before the baby arrived, Mindy helped us figure out so many logistics. We set up the nursery together and figured out what was truly needed, created a plan for having visitors (setting boundaries and tasks), meal prepped, and talked about how to be ready for all of the changes to come in our lives with baby. With Mindy on our side I felt truly prepared for what was to come.

Mindy’s approach to postpartum care was very approachable and organized. She provided great resources and helped us through planning for our fourth trimester. Even though this is our second child, it felt like Mindy had a lot of great tips that helped us process the challenges of adding another bundle of joy to our household. Her planning guides were very thorough and met all our needs from the practical to the personal. We would highly recommend her services!

Mindy was a great source of support for me and my husband in the early days after having our twins. She was highly encouraging and helpful. Mindy is a great listener and helped me not only with caring for my babies and getting my house in order but also making sure I was taking care of myself. She is also very kind & thoughtful, always asking if she could bring us anything we needed so we did not have to go out ourselves. I would definitely recommend Mindy to anyone looking for a postpartum doula.

Mindy seamlessly fit into our family at a very precious and personal time.  She offered the perfect amount of encouragement and support to help me come into trusting my motherly intuitions. She worked to help me  gain confidence with daily tasks and how to return activities I love, with baby in tow! I highly recommend Mindy for her professionalism, heart, and tenderness she presents at such a special time.
