We cannot say enough positive things about Rikki. Rikki supported our family with night doula care from our very first day home from the hospital following a traumatic birth in fall 2023. She brought compassion, good humor, and expert care to each night she spent with us. When an unexpected emergency kept us from being home with our son for a significant period of time, Rikki became our family's constant and saving grace. We knew our son was in good hands--and she taught his other caregivers a thing or two, too!

We watched our son completely relax in her presence--it's clear he loves her!--and we felt comfortable, too. We could go to Rikki with any question we had, and she offered thoughtful guidance and a listening ear. We so valued Rikki's skills and expertise that we kept extending our time with her and were very sad to say good bye.

Rikki was a critical part of our early days together as a family. We are more confident, joyous, and healthy parents because of her presence. We are endlessly grateful to Rikki, and we hope she will be part of our family's life for years to come. She is a gift. 



Rikki is amazing! She was my night doula for my daughter and it helped me so much. I trusted her completely taking care of my daughter overnight. I knew she was in the best hands. She fed, changed, and did so much. She took care of her all night so that I could get some good rest being a new mom. She also washed all the bottles and anything left over on the sink. She was also there to help me if I had any questions. I am so grateful to have had such an amazing doula in our life. She was always so kind and helpful. It put my mind at ease to have her during that time. Highly recommend.

We had the pleasure of having Rikki be our youngest's doula back in 2021. She went above and beyond as our baby was a preemie and helped us navigate those first handful of weeks with loving, thoughtful, and professional care. We had her with us for a few months that we will always cherish. She not only was great to our baby but also her calmed and compassionate support was crucial and soothing for me while I endured PPD. We still are in touch with her and feel very fortunate to have had her as our doula.

We hired Rikki as our overnight doula when my second was born in spring of 2023. I had a really rough time with my first and wanted to be prepared for help to know I would be at least getting a few nights of decent sleep and support with someone knowledgeable and trustworthy with my newborn. She was fantastic! She was calm and caring and very knowledgeable. I was breastfeeding so she would bring baby to me when he needed to eat, and she took care of the rest so I could get some much needed sleep. She also helped with laundry and keeping our kitchen clean which was a HUGE help for a postpartum mom of two! I fully trusted her with my newborn and would recommend her to anyone considering a doula! 



Rikki was amazing! She stepped into the role as our postpartum doula after our previous one left unexpectedly and we were so grateful that she did. I never doubted her love and care for our little one and I slept soundly knowing she was there. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!
