After interviewing several doulas, my partner and I chose to work with Lindsay for the birth of our first child for so many reasons: her sense of sisterhood; her firsthand and secondhand experience with a variety of uncomplicated and complicated births; her certification in placenta encapsulation; her low waste knowledge and natural practices; her thoroughness and responsiveness; her familiarity with my birth preferences; and her passion for the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experiences. Lindsay didn't just show up and support me and my partner during the birth of my son, she went above and beyond with organized folders full of valuable information for pregnancy through postpartum, a postpartum comfort package, a detailed birth debriefing (because naturally my memory was blurred!), spending extra time with us during our postpartum visits, and always being quick to respond to calls and texts when I would worry or feel lost. Thanks to Lindsay, I stuck to my birth preferences and had an intense but beautiful and low-stress birth experience. I can't recommend Lindsay enough!
