Testimonial for Grady Shipley

Grady was our postpartum doula and she was absolutely phenomenal.  She had all of the qualities we were looking for in that she was exceptionally warm and loving towards our brad new baby girl while also being extremely knowledgeable about newborn care.  She was also extremely easy to communicate with and flexible about hours, doing whatever she could to accommodate our family and our needs based on the day or night.  She helped our new baby fall into a nighttime sleeping rhythm very easily and she provided us with detailed tips about her methods so that we wouldn't be left in the dark once she was gone!  She always had helpful tips and strategies when our baby was fussy or uncomfortable and she went the extra mile to keep her feeling calm and secure-- whether it meant taking her for little walks or giving her a tour of every light in our house!  We also learned a lot about how to keep our baby from getting overtired which made the days and nights MUCH more peaceful.  Grady is that rare person who can teach you a lot without ever making you feel judged or like you're doing things wrong.  In fact, she makes you feel like everything is going great while continuing to gently steer you in the right direction.  We often leaned on Grady for nighttime help and we both got some much needed rest knowing that our baby girl was in her loving care.  Whenever our baby was sleeping she helped our household run smoothly in other ways-- whether it was helping out with laundry or tidying up or simply being kind and loving to our toddler son who quickly fell in love with her, Grady made our home a more sane, joyful and smoothly run household.   We would one thousand percent recommend her and we believe any family would be lucky to have her.
