Hello, This was my first pregnancy and of course it was a lot of questions and scares. Make it even worse I was bed written most of first and second trimester. Briana was godsent through the entire process. First of all she was my doula pro bono! Which was an automatic blessing. Secondly, she came to me by seeing my post on Facebook. She said how she had been drawn to help me that it was just on her heart. Sis came through!!! We had sessions where she showed me how to exercise with the ball and without it. She showed my partner how to comfort me during labor what things to look for, what questions to ask. Like there wasn't a ground we didn't cover. She showed me how to feed the baby, what to feed the baby, pointers on how to start off feeding  because I was breastfeeding. She made comfortable the entire process. It was nights I had pains to where I couldn't take it and she motivated me on how strong I was talked me through it. Educated me on what I was experiencing. Like she was just there!!! Every step of the way. It would be days she'd be in my home area and would call to see if home to stop by just checking on me and the baby. Like we built a bond. It was beautiful. When it came time for labor sis was  clutch!!!! She was there massaging me, helping with breathing techniques, propping me up, engaging with the dr and nurses on what I wanted. Like I was out of it and sis stepped up and did what needed to be done. My active labor was literally 6 minutes my baby boy was out. I'm forever grateful for my now sister. I would highly recommend her services. She's genuine and very knowledgeable and nurturing. You'll be in amazing hands. ??

 Briana was kind and helpful. She educated me on various skills and resources throughout my pregnancy She also, provided great emotional support and provided detailed attention to  comfort and assistance when I went into labor. During my labor and contractions, she kept me calm and comforting . She also visited me in the Hospital to check on me and baby and to  see how I was doing/feeling,  which I really appreciated. Thank you Bri!

Briana has been a Godsend. She is warm, patient, calm, rational, and she listens! 

I appreciate the depth of knowledge Briana possesses about general child care, nutrition and maternal well being. She is as much a comfort to me, as she is for my son, and as a first time mom, it has been fantastic having her by my side. 

I could not recommend her more! Thank you Miss Bri.
