My family retained Cheryl for post-partum doula services for the birth of our second child. After a rough birth experience with my first child and very little family support, a friend recommended I find a post-partum doula. I had never heard of a post-partum doula before, but it sounded amazing! Let me tell you.....I am so incredibly thankful for Cheryl! The very first day she came to the house I was in the midst of struggling to feed the baby. My husband opened the door and Cheryl immediately jumped into action! From providing overnight relief so my husband and I could get a full night's sleep, to helping me figure out nursing and pumping, to helping us navigate this transition with our 2 year old, to teaching us how to care for a newborn again she has been a godsend! Cheryl has been a reassuring presence, a non-judgemental voice of reason, and now I hope I can say a friend. Cheryl not only helped me heal from this birth, but she also helped me heal emotionally from my first. I wish I had know about post-partum doulas, and more so I wish I had known Cheryl for my first pregnancy. I can't recommend her enough. She is downright amazing.
