Krystal is so amazing! We loved having her as our doula. She answered every question we had, and made us feel comfortable in doing so. First time mom here so I had no idea what to expect. She was able to help us figure out our ideal birth plan beforehand, and even offered other resources if we needed further understanding. During labor we couldn’t have asked for a better person to be there with us. She supported me mentally, physically, and emotionally. Throughout my labor she was able to offer help in different positions, and techniques that made my labor as smooth as it could be. She helped me feel confident in asking for what I wanted and standing firm in what I believed in. Couldn’t recommend her enough! I will be telling all my friends about her. We love her! Please hire her for your labor, I promise you won’t regret it.

Yo Lina , tuve una experiencia muy linda con mis duolas , en este caso con krystal ella fue una persona que me ayudó mucho en mi trabajo de parto , me dio algunos consejos y siempre estuvo ahí para mí y mi bebé , siendo mamá primeriza hay muchas cosas que no conocemos pero es una  Bendición tener a personas como ella como Duola porque es un apoyo incondicional en ese momento y que se siente el amor con el que hace su trabajo de ayudar a mamis en su labor de parto 

¿ Que sii la recomiendo ?
