I am thankful I hired Amanda to be my doula for my first birth experience. Amanda was professional, knowledgable, and responsive from start to finish. I met Amanda through a five-week childbirth class that she sat in on while overseeing a new instructor. Based on her years of experience and friendly demeanor, I knew she was the doula for me. Amanda’s pre-birth visit helped me clarify what I wanted for my delivery. She took the time to answer all my questions and gave recommendations to prepare me mentally and physically for the birth. She helped me labor at home as long as possible and determined when it was time to leave for the hospital. She brought a sense of calm and reassurance all the way through the recovery room. The photography services she offers is worth her fee alone. The photos Amanda captured of the first few moments as a new family are priceless. Even though hiring a doula may seem expensive, Amanda provided valuable assistance every step of the way. I highly recommend her.

I’ve always considered myself to be “tough” and have a high pain threshold...but no previous pain or knowledge could have prepared me for labor. Without Amanda next to me, encouraging me and keeping me focused on the end goal and my capabilities, I would not have had a successful birth. People say I’m lucky to have had such a smooth birth, but that would not have been possible without Amanda’s knowledge, calming presence and assistance.

Where to begin! Being a first time mom and thinking about delivery is a huge undertaking all in itself. I can't even picture my labor without my husband on one side and Amanda on the other. During delivery a moms natural instincts take over and your body is called to action in the way nature intended. At a time where I felt the most vulnerable and the most powerful I can't imagine not having Amanda there as my guide and advocate. In a sea of nurses and doctors I thought I was in good hands. However, none of them believed my labor was progressing as quickly as it was. I felt the changes beginning and yet had NO clue what was happening. Amanda knew the progression of my labor even before I did. Labor is a time you channel this innate strength and become this powerhouse ready to bring life! This is a huge gift! But being able to rein in that power and channel that strength is key! With Amanda as my doula she blanketed the room with her calm spirit and steadfast strength that mapped the journey of my delivery. A doula is a guide to bringing new life! My delivery truly would not have been what it was without her there, and for that I am eternally grateful. I deeply believe in the power of a doula and the sisterhood that comes with it. Amanda I appreciate and cherish your work. Loving on moms and babies is your calling and a gift you share with everyone you work with. Thank you!

If you have the tiniest curiosity of looking into one for your delivery DO IT.
