Testimonial for Aijanae Young

We engaged Aijanae as a night doula, starting with us 3 nights per week following the birth of our second daughter.  We'd learned after our first go-round that this arrangement can be a lifesaver during those initial, difficult months of a new baby - and it totally was this time, too!  We never once worried about our daughter's safety when she was in Aijanae's care, which meant that we could focus on sleeping and recuperating whenever she was here.

A few details / notes about Aijanae:

- She's high-energy and inclusive.  While my partner and I are a heterosexual, cisgender couple, I noted from the beginning that Aijanae defaulted to neutral language and pronouns.

- While we only requested that she care directly for our infant - making bottles, feeding, diapering, soothing, etc. - she started emptying our dishwasher for us.  If I recall correctly, she's also willing to do baby laundry, clean pump parts, bring the baby to the mother for overnight nursing, etc. 

- She's an excellent communicator.

It is worth nothing that, especially when COVID still looms large for folks (like young children) who are unvaccinated, you should speak with any doula you engage about how often they generally have to reschedule, what happens if you or they need to cancel, what their protocol is in case of COVID exposure.  This is always a good callout, but especially in a pandemic, as I think everyone can experience a scare that requires a potential reschedule.  This was true for Aijanae, too, but we were always able to resolve.  Additionally, I really appreciated that she was highly communicative about her COVID protocols and always willing to take an at-home test if we requested. 

All in all, we enjoyed working with her and were always confident our baby was safe in her care!
