Amanda was truly a Godsend to our family! Amanda went above and beyond in working with us where we wouldn't have been able to have a doula otherwise. She was more than willing to answer my mountain load of questions, and I never felt stupid for any of the questions I asked. When preeclampsia complications arose and I had to be induced 6 weeks early at a different hospital and further away from where I had planned, Amanda was still able to work her schedule to be there and drove the extra distance, well over an hour away. Amanda was extremely helpful explaining my options and what to expect and really helped keep my mind (as well as my husband's) at ease. Even though the birth didn't go as planned as my sweet baby flipped breech during labor, Amanda was extremely supportive and encouraging as we had to suddenly navigate through the disappointment of having a c-section. Amanda continued to be a major help, answering my many questions about infant care, breastfeeding, and life after having a baby. We could not have done this without her!
