Erin is truly a life saver! We hit a wall when my baby was 6 weeks old and I needed help. My baby was sleeping only 1 to 2 hours at a time and I was struggling (especially having another child to care for.) Erin spent 2 nights a week with us and stayed with the baby while I got some much needed rest. I was very nervous about inviting a stranger to stay in my home and watch my baby, but I felt instantly at ease when I met Erin. She has a very calming demeanor and was always very reassuring.

My only regret regarding Erin is that I didn't know about her sooner! We will definitely use her again if we have more children.

As a mom of two kids, I knew what to expect of myself when my third was due.  I knew that I had a history of feeling overwhelmed so when the opportunity came to work with Erin, I jumped on it.  It was wonderful to have someone to talk to and go over things with.  Erin was able to help me troubleshoot breastfeeding problems and she had some great ideas for my older kids and their adjustment to the new family.  I found her very easy to work with and very helpful.  I looked forward to having her come so that I could talk with her and have some grownup time as well as do simple things like nap and shower.  I would highly recommend every mom, new to motherhood or not get a postpartum doula.

Erin was a really wonderful help during the first few months of my postpartum experience. I had not looked into a postpartum doula but my labor doula recommended one because we don't have family in the area. Erin was always ready, willing, and able to fulfill whatever need we had on any particular day from help with baby care like getting comfortable bathing our daughter to simply holding her while I did things new mommies miss like showering or napping. I appreciated her knowledge and she was always able to help me feel more informed and confident. I would recommend Erin to anyone with a new baby.

Erin Morris is a fantastic doula, she helped me with my postpartum period especially with lactation.  I needed someone to be patient and give me emotional support as well as guide and reassure me as a 1st time mom, and I got that and much more from Erin.  She is a very patient, kind, and giving person and made me feel better about the process.  I thought the hard part was labor and delivery, but breastfeeding is definitely a lot of work.  Sleepless nights with a newborn infant, and feeling overwhelmed without a lot of experience with kids prior to having my own; she made me feel a lot more confident and relaxed about the process of becoming a parent and I am still sticking with my breastfeeding and finding my body able to produce more and more milk. 

I highly recommend her and I look forward to working with her again when my husband and I have more children!!

Erin was such a blessing during the delivery, as me and my husband say if it wasn't for her calm personality we may have not made it through the delivery. Erin was on point and very knowledgable and extremly helpful, it was a blessing to have her in our lives for the birth of our son James Oliver. I will be reccomending her to fellow pregnant mommas and will want her to be present if possible for my next child.

 Erin was my doula for the birth of my first daughter on January 4th, 2013. We met months before and her, my husband, an I, really clicked. She's laid back and easy going, I could already tell she would be a calming and supportive person to have at our birth. We met a couple times before the brith and she was supportive of my birth plan. During labor, she let my husband have his role and was always there to step in where she needed. She really helped the both of us stay calm and focused. 

My husband an I agree that we truly could not have gone through labor and delivery without her there! If I'm still living in the area and get pregnant again, I would want Erin at my birth again!

Erin was an awesome postpartum doula. She was very patient with me in scheduling a time to come by, in a unique situation (husband deployed and I was living with my in-laws) and continued to be patient. After the first few minutes of our initial meeting, I felt comfortable with her and was able to talk openly with her. I had some problems with breastfeeding (very small and flat nipples, my son wouldn't latch, my milk never fully came in) and she brought some great resources. I would highly recommend Erin as a postpartum doula to anyone.
