Misty is awesom!  We met about week after i had my second baby.  i BF my first child. So i knew what to do.  He didn’t  seemed to be getting enough from me.  

We met, showed me what to look for, how to make sure he was getting everything possible from me   Because he was NICU baby, his suction wasnt very strong   He was doing everything right... just had to build up muscle to get more out.  I believe she showed me gadget to help NB feed better, and know he was getting a lot of milk from me. I didnt want to confusef him, so i was strongly against bottles. ( doctors suggested bottles) 2-3 months, his suction was golden.  She loves babies and actually listen!!!  To this day i still bug her and have ppl email her!!!

Misty is an awesome Doula! My baby was 10 days late, and I ended up having an induction.  Misty told me what I might expect when I arrived to be induced, and then came to the hospital when I was ready for her.  She helped me through a very long labor, and also helped support my husband.  She encouraged him to get involved and gave him tips to help me manage my contractions.  Misty also has a sense of humor and was always so positive and thoughtful in her words and actions.  She was very encouraging at every pre and postnatal visit and helped me to have the birthing experience that I wanted.  After the birth she supported me with breastfeeding and checked in on us a few weeks later.  I would highly recommend Misty to anyone!

I don't know what I would have done without having Misty as my Doula. It was the most amazing labor experience. She instantly made me feel at ease upon the first meeting, she was open, knowledgeable, and had a very calming manner about her. She informed me about many options and helped me to cover many of the things I would have to decide about before, during, and after birth.

When I called to let her know I was headed to the hospital she was there waiting for me at the entrance and was in full support mode. She had so many techniques that helped me to breathe and power through my contractions that I made it for several hours drug free. One of the very best things that kept me focused was her constant positive, reassuring words of motivation. She really made me feel and believe that I was doing an amazing job!

When the time came to push she was right there by my side helping, guiding, supporting me as she had during the entire labor. She never left my side and was a true motivator. I honestly don't think I would've had the labor and birth of my dreams had it not been for having such an excellent doula like Misty.

Misty stayed and made sure everything was perfect, she checked on me and my daughter and made sure we were in a great place before she left. I was excited when she came to visit for her post birth check as I was able to share with her how great my daughter was doing. She went over with me how the labor and birth went so I could compare my perspective with hers. If I were to have another baby you better believe Misty would be my Doula again.

Misty was truly the support system that I had when I had my daughter almost 8 years ago. Yes, I had a lot of people at the hospital, but none that were just focused on me & the birth of the Lilian like Misty was. She was my advocate when I was too tired or stressed out (which should never happen when you are dealing with giving birth!) Misty made it easy & hassle free. She is calm in chaotic situations & come up with quick solutions. 

I had a nurse that was getting frustrated with me about the way I had my daughter's head at my boob (I was learning how to breast feed, I had never done this before!) she was aggressive & rude with me. Misty QUICKLY stepped in & asked her to leave, & patiently sat with me & helped me through the process. I had my daughter before Misty became a doula, I am lucky enough to have grown up with Misty & know the pure heart she has. This is what Misty was meant for! She now lives 3000 miles away from me but the next time I am pregnant, I will fly her out to be here with me!
