My experiences with Taylor have been wonderful. I have invited her to sit in on my Bradley Method classes and be a guest speaker, of which my students thouroughly enjoyed! She is a wealth of knowledge! I have referred her to many of my students and she has served two of them as their doula. I am extremely selective of whom I suggest my clients to call, and Taylor is my top pick. She served my students with professionalism, respect and compassion. She is a joy to be around! Thank you, Taylor!

I wasn't sure if I needed a doula but am so glad that I had Taylor there for the birth of my third baby. I contacted several doulas late in my pregnancy and felt super comfortable with Taylor right away.

During my labor, Taylor came when I needed her and was a huge help at keeping me calm and keeping me breathing well through back to back contractions. She was also awesome and so helpful after baby was born.

There are so many words that could descrive Taylor. Amazing, loving, strong, calming, supportive, informative, angel. My husband and I knew from the moment we met Taylor that we wanted her to be with us through our pregnancy and birthing journey. She felt like an old friend to us. She understood all our wishes and hopes. She gave us so much information and listened to any and every question we could have possibly had. She was always available through phone, text, email and in person. When things changed toward the end of pregnancy she helped to keep us calm and reassure us that all would be just fine and that our son would come when he was supposed to. Her support throughout the pregnancy and labor was beyond amazing. I would recommend her again and again because anyone that has her as part of their birthing team is completely blessed. She brought so much love and strength to our birth and truly touched our lives in an amazing way. I hope to call on her when my husband and I have our next baby. My husband and I couldn't imagine not having her there.

We had a great experience with Taylor as our doula throughout the whole birth experience. She listened to our story and meet our specific needs. She was with my husband and I during our birth class so she knew our perspective going in. She was right there when we needed her during labor. She was exactly the doula we needed and I would highly recommend her.

Taylor is a very calming and lighthearted individual. She brings comfort with her wherever she goes and especially into a birth.

My husband and I loved having Taylor as a resource before the birth of our gorgeous daughter. We loved the extra support during labor and delivery, the extra set of hands for pain mangement techniques and a confident person to keep us focused and grounded when it got tough. iI was especially awesome for her to keep tabs on how labor progressed and offer a non biased account of our daughter's birth. This was our fourth child and my husband's telling of the previous births is very traumatic and I believe this birth was equally as traumatic but the doula made the difference. We weren't in this alone! 

The post-partum doulaing was the best part. She made sure I ate and drank to recover quickly and came to my house to offer support with the baby and even vacuumed and grocery shopped for me while I recovered! 

The absolute best thing about Taylor is the connection we made and get to continue throughout my daughter's life. She's wonderful and a blessing to have by your side!
