Emily Rofkar Thiel

Angela was my Doula for my third child born March 14, 2014. It was the first time my husband and I worked with a Doula and we had an amazing experience. Angela was very professional and I felt very comfortable with her. She was informative and anytime I had a question or concern during my pregancy she would be there to give me an answer or she would research the right answer. On delivery day she was there for me during the whole process and supported each decision I made. I would recomment Angela to my friends and family many times over.
