My husband and I worked with Brandi after having our first child and we couldn't recommend her more. Her calm and soothing presence was the perfect balm for the bleary and intense moments of early parenthood. She is knowledgeable (without being dogmatic) and kind.  With her help we managed to get our baby on a sleep schedule and found a rythm that made it possible for us to get the rest we needed to be able to wake up and go about our days. If we were to have a second child,  I would reach out to Brandi to help us once again as she is such a lovely person and a wonderful night doula!

I absolutely recommend hiring Brandi. My husband and I worked with Brandi as our postpartum doula after the birth of our son. We knew we were in good hands from the first meeting. Brandi asked us what was important to us for our birth and postpartum period - it was key for us to have space for our new little family to build our own rhythm and routines, especially with family far away, and we were looking for help during the day (so we'd be awake to talk and learn) and a couple of overnights (for some sleep and relief.)  Brandi fully understood and had great advice from the start. Even before I gave birth, Brandi was available via text to check in on how I was feeling (physically and emotionally) and to help consult on house setup and baby item prep / baby registry. 

Two days after my son was born, we were back home and in the emotional throes of learning how to breastfeed and console a very hungry and frustrated little guy. From the minute Brandi walked in, she brought a calming presence, quick solutions, and a focus for caring for my son and for our (shot) nerves and exhausted bodies. Within minutes, the baby was quiet, eating some expressed colostrum and formula, and then fast asleep; and we were so relieved. Over the next few weeks, Brandi became a part of the team, allowing us to take naps and recover, maintaining the apartment, helping us do the scary stuff like nail trimming and first bath, consulting on house setup, and - perhaps most importantly - lending a calm, kind ear. The couple overnights were helpful so we could reset, while knowing the little guy was in loving hands. We still trade texts and photos as he's growing and Brandi will probably always be part of our team in a special way moving forward!

If you're reading this: book Brandi. If you need more details: I worked with Brandi in the fall of 2023 as both a night nurse and postpartum doula. We were so grateful for her expertise in both areas; thanks to her my husband and I actually got some sleep!  My son arrived three weeks early and Brandi was a bright spot in a very chaotic and stressful time. She has the absolute best energy: she's warm, loving, and cared for the whole family (not just baby!). She also helped us with loads of tasks around the house, which was absolutely crucial as we got used to life with our new baby. She was not hesitant to do anything we needed help with, from helping to set up the nursery to dropping off laundry. Not only is Brandi a kind and loving presence but she is tremendously prompt and professional in all of her communications- something my husband and I really appreciated. I can't recommend working with her enough!

We hired Brandi as our Doula and she was wonderful.  Professional, supportive, trustworthy and so warm to have in our home.  She was so helpful at answering questions and coming up with ideas. I knew my baby was always safe and I would highly reccomend Brandi as a Doula.

I cannot recommend Brandi enough! She was an absolute godsend throughout my pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey. From the first time we met, she made me feel incredibly comfortable and heard. She truly listened to my hopes and fears and helped me craft a birth plan that was tailored to my specific needs.

During labor, she was a calm and reassuring presence. She helped my husband and I navigate through each contraction and made sure that we were both as comfortable as possible. Her expertise and suggestions for pain management were invaluable.

After the birth of my baby, she continued to provide support and guidance through the postpartum period. She checked in on me regularly and helped me navigate some of the challenges that came with breastfeeding and adjusting to life with a newborn.

I cannot imagine going through my pregnancy and birth journey without the support of my amazing doula. She is truly a gift to any family lucky enough to work with her.

Brandi, was such a great doula for our family. After birth is such an adjustment for first time parents. She was the first person I let stay with my daughter for a much needed night out. After that experience I recommend her as a birth doula a post parting doula because of the little things.

I have had the pleasure of working with Brandi Evans my doula for my youngest child. She offers personalized support for any of your needs before, during and after your birth. She made my family and I feel extremely comfortable and offered non judgmental, open communication with all of our concerns. I would highly recommend Brandi to help make your birth and postpartum care as smooth and supportive as it can be.

Brandi served as my doula for all three of my children, providing unwavering support during both the birthing process and postpartum period. Her encouragement and assistance were invaluable, and her empathetic and non-judgmental approach was deeply appreciated. Despite being a seasoned mother of three, I could not have navigated these experiences without Brandi's guidance. Additionally, her expertise in newborn care is exceptional, as she possesses a unique ability to soothe and care for infants. In my opinion, her services are worth every penny, and I am immensely grateful for her unwavering support.
