Client Testimonials for Zoë Etkin

Post a testimonial for Zoë Etkin



Congrats to you first of all for recognizing the value of a doula. Secondly, consider yourself blessed if you get to work with Zoë as your doula. She was my postpartum doula and was flexible, pitched in wherever it was needed - from dishes to massages to advice, very supportive to a mother's needs. She doesn't take over your baby, but instead really looks out for moms best interest. This woman is just a wealth of knowledge and I asked her all my baby questions that you don't need a doctor for, but someone that is experienced and knows what is in the range of normal. She has a bazillion skillsets, like making a meal out of whatever is in your fridge to dicing up placenta to belly binding to web page creation (seriously). And def have her make you kale salad. Zoë is kind and creative and will not make it awkward in your home. Recommend her if you are looking for all around immediate postpartum or birth support.
