Libby is the bomb!

My partner signed me up with a 2 hour massage with her that was also kind of a doula interview. I wasn’t sure if I wanted a doula before I went in, and by the time I left, I couldn’t imagine my birth without her.

I had my baby on 1/6/19 with her help and she was so clutch!

She listened intently and knew what to do to help with all my labor pains. She took pictures for us with our Polaroid ? and she was just such amazing energy to have throughout the process.

I am very happy to recommend Libby for doula services and DEFINITELY massage. She is very intuitive with massage.

Cheers and good luck with labor!

We were so fortunate to have Libby as part of our birthing journey. This was our second child and I wanted to try a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) but wasn't entirely sure how I would handle that experience so we decided to obtain Libby's services. Libby is super supportive, caring and informative. She has a ton of experience backed up with a lot of research and has a strong understanding of what pregnant women go through with these body and hormonal changes. She was able to put my fears to rest and answer the thousands of questions I had. She also provided wonderful massages and dancing/breathing exercises to make my body more comfrotable and ready for the birth/labor. She was there for the entire stay at the hospital during my natural, unmedicated labor and I truly believe that I would not have had a successful VBAC if it wasn't for Libby. 

 

Libby you are a such a kind soul and godsend and we are so fortunate you are in our lives! Thank you!

I am so grateful that I found Libby.  She was incredible.  Answering all my questions and finding the answers when necessary. Her help with creating my birth plan was irreplacable.  She was the best advocate for me especially when the doctor on call delivering my baby wasn't going to let me do the preplanned VBAC.  I would recommend her and I have recommended her.

Thank you, Libby!
