From the moment we met Elizabeth, we knew she was going to be a great support following our baby's birth. She is professional, thorough, informative, caring and so passionate about what she does!! She has been the most emotionally supportive person throughout my post partum care. She provides support day and night and is great at just listening when an over tired momma wants to vent in the middle of the night. She made placenta capsules for me and I feel they helped. I had severe post partum depression with my first child and I wanted to try anything I could to decrease my PPD. I feel this time around was not as intense as it was the first time. I recovered much quicker than I did with my first child. She really is amazing at her job and I couldn't have asked for a better doula to have by my side post pregnancy. I highly recommend her!
I first contacted Elizabeth about placenta encapsulation. She was so kind and knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable about the whole proces. I was really on the fence. After speaking with her and my husband we decided to go ahead and do it. We had our first meeting and absolutely fell in love with Elizabeth. She explained the entire process step by step and answered all of our questions! After our baby was born she came to our house and prepared our placenta. She cleaned the area really good and even did my dishes! she is a very open and honest person which I appreciate! it was a pleasure working with her! If I have another child I would like to use her for a doula as well!
I have nothing but words of praise for Elizabeth. Knowledgeable, reliable, punctual, passionate, caring, great at following up with clients, a true professional. From the first moment I spoke to Elizabeth I was impressed by her honesty and organization skills. I needed someone that would be on top of things and I am happy to say she was that person. I chose her because she was recommended by a trusted friend and also because she would come to my house to encapsulate my placenta, which would make things safer and easier for me. Safety is Elizabeth's number one priority. Even though she was not my doula, I was pleasantly surprised that she checked on me several time throughout my pregnancy and after giving birth. She truly cares about her clients and she does her best to support them. If you choose to hire Elizabeth, you are in good hands!
Elizabeth was amazing!!! I knew from the day I was pregnant I wanted to encapsulate my placenta. She came highly recommended from many of the military wives in the are. I Now see why. She took the time to thoroughly walk me through the entire process and explain to me how they go about everything. She came and met with me about 6 weeks before my due date to make sure that I had all, of the materials in order to collect the placenta and I knew the proper storage before the encapsulation pricess. I The fact that she did everything in home made me feel very at ease, because I could be as involved as I wished with the process.
I had an interesting labor to delivery, long story short I got s fever and my midwife called her to see if I could still encapsulate. She gave us instruction and stayed in communication checking in on myself and my daughter, not just about the encapsulation process which made me feel like she genuinely care.
when she did come to my home we engaged in great conversation and she explained step by step hat she was doing and why it was being done. She is clearly very knowledgeable about the process, and I would recommend working with her any day. If we have our second child before leaving the area I will definit be working with her Again!
Elizabeth Luke is one of the most genuine people I've ever met. She truly cares and is one of the least judgemental peoplemail I know. I have never felt anything but comfortable around her. She perfectly balances professionalism and friendship with her clients. She is so passionate about her work and her passion is contagious. When we were first asking about doula and placenta encapsulation services, we were living out of state preparing to move to Jacksonville. I showed interest in a moms group on Facebook, Liz contacted me, gave me some information and checked in on me from time to time but was never pushy. After we moved and got settled, I contacted her and we went over all of my questions. I know we talked much longer than the time she alloted for but she was patient with me and answered all of my questions. After I made the decision to go with First Coast Doulas/Placenta Services, she was communicative and helpfully reminded me of the necessary instructions to prepare for my placenta to be encapsulated (which was great because I had extreme pregnancy brain and couldn't remember much). After we came home from the hospital, Liz came over to start the encapsulation process. I was surprised how relieving it was having the process done in my home. There was no question of a mix up or cleanliness or anything. My husband liked watching what Liz was doing and learning about it. After she finished, she talked to me about how I was feeling, how post partum was going for me, checked my son's latch while he nursed and overall told me I was a rockstar and doing great. She was compassionate, kind and encouraging. The capsules helped my energy level so much! I felt an increase in my breastmilk supply and they helped me feel less like I was on a roller coaster mentally and emotionally. They did exactly what I had hoped they would! I recommend placenta encapsulation to anyone, especially by Elizabeth Luke.
We choose to work with Elizabeth for our placenta encapsulatation. We met her at the Jacksonville pregnancy expo and decided to work with her due to her extensive knowledge about the subject and the fact she comes to your house to complete the encapsulation. I was interested in this because I wanted to make sure I produced enough milk along with the other benefits. Turns out I now make enough milk for a small country and have more energy than ever before! Countless people have asked what my "secret to success" is and every time I say my placenta! I highly recommend this to everyone and recommend Elizabeth to work with. She was very supportive throughout the whole process and was flexible with coming to our house as we had a nicu baby and we're back and fourth quite a bit. She made sure to leave the house cleaner than when she came and was very thorough with her directions. I will definitely be doing this again and if you also decide to work with her, you will not be disappointed!
Elizabeth was caring, kind, professional, and warm. She explained everything about encapsulation and answered our many questions. After birth, she responded right away to set up a time to come to our house. She was easy and made a point that we could go nap or if we needed some fellowship she was there to listen. Elizabeth checked in with us a few times after and was very available if we needed anything. Would definitely use her again and would recommend her to anyone!
Elizabeth came to my home and did my placenta encapsulation. She was so amazing! She was extremely professional, friendly, helpful and available at all times. I loved how attentive she still :) I would definitely recommend her and will be using her devices for my next babe!
Contacted them for Placenta Encapsulation and since day one she was the nice and gave me all the information that I needed. From how she does the encapsulation, the papers, the process, everything. The day came and she arrived in time, double cleaned the space she was going to use, set up everything and while showing me what she was doing, explained every detail of it to me.
the pills work fantastic, when I drink them, I end up creating more milk supply than usual, feel energetic and let's say has been helping me a lot on getting thru the day. The times I have forgotten to drink it, I have noticed the differences pretty fast. I feel tired and my milk supply isn't as much as the days that I drink them.
If I would have known about them sooner, I would have asked for thenother services too.
When I found out I was pregnant, I was thrilled. It was my first baby so I was truly uneducated about anything birth related. I started searching for a doula and I found Elizabeth Luke. I watched a video of her being interviewed on TV and was very impressed with her and what she had to say. When I contacted her with my many many questions she always went above and beyond responding to me and in a very timely fashion. I loved reading her many blog posts on Facebook. Liz is plugged into technology and has sent me resources and videos and many things to help educate me on everything birth and baby. It was an easy decision choosing her for my doula.
As the months went on through my pregnancy I felt like I had a sister there for me helping me along the way. Liz has always acted in a professional manner and yet she feels like part of the family.
When it came to the labor and delivery of my baby girl, Liz was with me from start to finish and beyond. She held my hand and coached me through breathing and relaxation. She had tips that made the labor so much easier. We did exercises to get the baby in the right position which made it progress more quickly. And when I wanted to give up she was there for me, she didn't leave my side and made me feel safe and secure. I got the natural labor I wanted and wouldn't have if she had not been there. And now I have a beautiful healthy baby girl and a great new friendship with Liz that I treasure. We have started calling her Aunty Liz.
I opted to do placenta encapsulation and am very happy with that whole process. Baby is one week old and I am feeling great already.
Hiring Liz was the best decision I made for my pregnancy and I would highly recommend her! Thank you Liz from the bottom of my heart! We love you!
Elizabeth performed the placenta encapsulation for me after my second child. She came to our house to discuss the benefits of ingesting the placenta before we decided to do it. She's very informed on the topic and was able to explain it to me and my husband. Before delivery she provide the transport cooler with all the supplies needed to bring my placenta home with me. Then after I delivered she came to perform the encapsulation services. She allowed my husband to watch as much as he could stomach. She was professional but also like having a friend come visit. She was a pleasure to have in our house. Before and after, she cleaned up the area she was using and provided me with a keepsake of the cord. If I was to recommend anything and anyone it would've Elizabeth and placenta encapsulates, best decision ever!!
Elizabeth Luke was awesome! She worked around our family's schedule. Was very courteous and polite. My daughter loved talking to her. She was quick and very clean. Would definitely use her again, as well as tell others about her.! Thanks Elizabeth!
When I first discovered I was pregnant, I was 19 years old and though extremely excited I found myself crying and scared. As a victim of sexual abuse , the absolute last thing I wanted to have to worry about was having things done to me that I didn't want done. I did what you aren't supposed to do and googled everything under the sun that had to do with pregnancy and birth and that's when I discovered the horrors of episiotomies, c sections, little tong things and vaccums. At that point in time I was like oh no , I need help! I read about people having Doulas and how awesome and helpful they were so I began my search. I found Elizabeth through Google and ended up following her Facebook page. I was really impressed with the reviews her clients gave her and her views on pregnancy and birth. We met for our consultation, and immediately clicked. She was very professional but at the same time it was like she was my long lost best friend or something. I immediately hired her that day. I knew she was the right fit for me. Through out my pregnancy she was so incredibly helpful , she offered tons of information on questions or concerns that I had and went above and beyond in trying to help me have the birth I wanted. When it came down to delivery day, she was very supportive and very intuitive. I wanted an all natural birth , and I did achieve that, but towards the end I was begging for an epidural and she helped guide me out of that mind state and helped me get over that wall of pain and have the birth I wanted. I'm 3 months postpartum now and though our contract ended a couple weeks after birth, she still continues to check in with me and answer any and all questions I may have. She is very sweet and really knowlagible. If you're looking for a Doula , or even considering a Doula, I would set up a consultation with Elizabeth. I promise you that you won't be disappointed (:
My experience with Elizabeth Has been absolutely amazing! I wish I had known her when I had my first two boys! She has offered me so much support and has become a great friend! I purchased the placenta encapsulation and was beyong pleased with the outcome. With my first two children I had heavy bleeding, no milk supply, and battled PPD. With my third child I started the placeta pills when he was 5 days old and was floored with my results! my post baby bleeding stopped around 2 weeks, my milk supply came in and i actually have milk to put in the freezer, no PPD in sight, AND the energy boost they gave me helped me kick a terrible coffee habit. i have felt amazingly wonderful post baby and I totally credit my placenta pills, if we wxpand our family again I will hands down purchase this service again along with doula services from this amazing woman!! I highly recommend!!!
I am so grateful to have had Elizabeth as my advocate during my second birth. I wanted so badly for everything to go as natural as possible and I was so scared. She was very knowledgable and such a positive and calm support leading up to the birth. My labor was only 6 hours and she was able to make it to me in time by the time I realized I was in full blown labor. Once to the hospital I was terrified and started closing myself off and shutting down and she stuck with me and insisted I do what I planned and I knew deep down I wanted. She made sure to help me get the birth I wanted even when in the moment I was too scared to do it. She supported my husband and showed him how to apply pressure and what to do. When it came time she knew I was pushing she made sure to get me in a position that was the most helpful even when I didnt think I could move. Right as I started pushing she thought to grab my phone and start snapping pictures since our photographer couldnt make it in time. The images she captured are so priceless. I am so thankful to her for thinking on her feet so quickly. My husband and I are so grateful she was there as our family support espeically since no one else could make it. I highly recommend Elizabeth to be anyone's doula if they want a supported birth with someone who KNOWS what they are doing and is educated in all variations of pregnancy, labor and birth. Thank you Elizabeth for helping us have the birth of my dreams!
I knew the benefits of having a doula based on research I had done, but nothing could have taught me the necessity of a doula better than my own experience. I had notified Liz when contractions started, but being the hard headed, tough woman that I am, I assured her that she didn’t need to come out to my house quite yet. My husband supported me very well for the first 4 hours of labor, but I started to panic after about 3 hours of contractions. I didnt expect a contraction to feel the way it did. So many questions started rushing through my mind, I started to doubt myself and my decision to birth at home, my anxiety was felt by my husband, his anxiety made me more anxious, and it seemed like the calm and peace I was hoping for my birth was slipping through my fingers. By the time my husband insisted that we finally call her and have her come out, she was already parked outside my house, waiting for our call. She must have instinctively known that I needed her, before I even knew that I needed her. Everything changed when she arrived. Just her presence calmed me down instantly, and the counter pressure she applied to my lower back relieved the pain and discomfort. She consistently reminded me to maintain a low tone in my moans and groans, and rubbed out the tension in my face whenever I grimaced, which helped to maintain the calm. I was able to sleep in between contractions, and every time I opened my eyes for a new wave, she was right there, completely focused on me, reassuring me that all was well. When it came time to actually push the baby out, she handed the reigns over to my husband and she took over the camera, making him look like the hero that he is. She insists that we could have done it without her, but I honestly do not see how it would have been possible. My beautiful son was born at home as intended, with no drugs or medical intervention, and I owe a huge part of that experience to my doula. Thank you Elizabeth!
My name is Sherman Webb and I am writing this testimonial to express why I feel Elizabeth’s Doula services during my sons birth were so incredibly valuable. Before my wife and I became pregnant we had already discussed having our child at home. I was a little apprehensive of the idea, probably because I had the experience of 2 hospital births in my past of children from a previous marriage. I began to educate myself on the whole system of home birthing and its benefits, including Doula services. Over the next several months my wife and I started feeling more comfortable with the decision to go the home birthing route. Elizabeth assured both of us that she would be there to assist my wife in any way she needed leading up to, during and in follow up after our child was born. Elizabeth helped us develop our birth plan to ensure our experience would be what we had hoped and prayed it would be. That it would be safe, and professionally executed, and carried out as we discussed, right down to the music we wanted playing in the background.
When Elizabeth arrived, the entire atmosphere changed from one with anxiety, uncertainty and a little fear to be honest, to one of assurance, calm and safety. My wife’s countenance was immediately uplifted. The discomfort was still there, but as Elizabeth began to encourage and comfort her in ways only her experience and training could, my wife began to “settle into” the experience of what her body was feeling. I was amazed. The rest of the home birthing team ( mid wife and assistants) arrived several hours later as my wife’s labor progressed. Elizabeth guided my wife through her labor with calm, ensuring that her needs were met at every step of progression and our beautiful son was born on January 28th, 2015 at 2:15 in the afternoon…..at home.
Thank you Elizabeth for helping us to have the at-home birthing experience that my wife had so lovingly dreamed of.
Elizabeth was great to work with from the very beginning! She answered all of my questions about Placenta Encapsulation and was great with follow-up! I was able to go through the process from beginning to end seamlessly with Elizabeth's guidance and support. She was very responsive and prompt in picking up the placenta from the hospital and she delivered the pills very quickly before we were even discharged. I would highly recommend Elizabeth for PE services!
I can not say enough good things about Elizabeth Luke. I had my placenta encapsulated by her. She was prompt in picking up my placenta, and delivering the capsuls! I was amazed how hard and quickly she worked on my products! She is extremely good at what she does. She even brought a present for my 2.5 year old with the capsuls, tincture, art work, keepsake, perinium wash, and healing bath. She made me feel so secure in my decision to encapsulate. Any time I had a question, she had an answer. Elizabeth Luke was a perfect match for me. The only thing I regret is not hiring her as my doula for my birth! WE LOVE HER!
Having Elizabeth be my doula was the best decision I made during my pregnancy. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and always has the resources to answer any of my questions. Elizabeth went above and beyond as a doula. I know she truly cared about me and making sure I had exactly what I wanted. She supported me 110% in any decision I made during my pregnancy and labor. I truly believe the birth of my son wouldn't have gone the way I wanted it to without her. I really love the thought and effort she put into my cord keepsake and placenta artwork. She really got to know me as a person to know exactly what I like. Elizabeth has a quick turn around on my placenta pills, which have been awesome with energy! She will always have a special place in my heart and will definitely be my doula for my next baby!!
When my 4th child was born Liz was my doula and I’m so glad she was there! What was supposed to be a natural birth at a birth center turned into a medical emergency at 38 weeks when my son stopped moving in utero. I had to be induced at a local hospital and Liz was with me every step of the way. She educated me on my options and respected my decisions every time. She came prepared with helpful items and wisdom that kept me (and my husband in some cases) comfortable, well-nourished and calm throughout our entire hospital stay. Despite many medical interventions that I never expected I would need, with Liz by my side providing comfort, information and support, I look back on my son’s birth not with disappointment, but with pride that I made the best decisions I could for myself and my child, and with gratitude to Liz as one of the people who helped me make those decisions.
I am beyond thankful that I had Elizabeth as my doula! I knew I wanted an out of hospital, natural birth and I couldn't have chose a better doula. Elizabeth is so knowledgeable about birth, Im glad I had someone that knows her stuff. I labored for over 24 hours with very close contractions and no progression. She was right there beside me, guiding me through relaxing labor positions and gently reminding me of what my amazing body can do: birth a baby. Without her knowledge and gentle support I can only imagine I would have been scared and lost. It was with her encouragement, support, and great knowledge of the birth process that gave me the confidence to know that my body could birth the way I was meant too. Finally my baby boy was born in water at a birth center. Elizabeth was there with encouragement, gentle massage, and strong support. She truly went above and beyond! Thank you Elizabeth!!
I'm so happy that I was referred to Elizabeth! She was at the hospital not long after my son was born to pick up my placenta, and brought my capsules and artwork the next morning. :) Any questions I had were answered quickly and clearly. (& kindly!) I wish my husband and I had decided to hire a doula..I would have loved for her to be mine. I've also made a new friend! :)
Elizabeth was there through all my false starts monitoring contractions and easing fears. She has become not only a support in labor but also in postpartum. She signs on for better or worse and becomes a family friend if you're willing to have her!
