Sommer is the best! I don't know how we would have managed without her! We don't have family who live in town and when my husband went back to work after a week I was so stressed about how I would manage with a newborn and three year old daughter to chase. Sommer coming into our lives was so amazing! She helped me prep dinners, folded  laundry, emptied/loaded the dishwasher and played with my daughter etc! It was wonderful to have an adult to talk with too as we weren't leaving the house much. Honestly this was what I looked forward to the most when I knew she was coming to visit. It was like having a best friend visit you and lend an ear AND a helping hand! My daughter still asks when Sommer will come over to play tag in the yard or do an art project. Sommer is so kind, patient and made me calmer when I felt like I might lose my mind! I really feel that having a post partum doula helped our whole family adjust to the new normal. Thank you Sommer!!
