Testimonial for Lea Azevedo

Lea worked with us as a night doula providing care and assistance overnight when our son was born, beginning a few days after we were home from the hospital until he was 2 months old. We feel so fortunate to have found her and that she was able to help care for our family in those early days. Without grandparents or other family in the area, we really needed an extra pair of hands so that we could rest and actually sleep through the night as new parents. But more than providing extra sleep, Lea helped us make the transition into parenthood, generously sharing her experience and knowledge. She was happy to provide input on baby supplies or home remedies for common newborn or postpartum issues, and always has the baby’s safety in mind. She is actually a certified child passenger safety technician, and when we first met with her before the birth, she helped us install our carseat! Particularly during a surge in the pandemic, it was important to us to take precautions around covid exposure and Lea was very responsive and respectful of our wishes regarding masking. When we were debating which carrier to buy, she let us try one out that she recommended and had on hand. She shared tips about breastfeeding and every other aspect of new motherhood that came up. I felt nervous about starting pumping, and Lea sat with me one night and showed me how to set up my pump and get started. There were countless examples like these; times when we, as new parents, felt unsure and Lea was an invaluable and trusted resource in these early days. She integrated into our house so easily and we felt extremely comfortable with her caring for our son. She offers advice and direction but is never heavy-handed and was happy to work with us as a team. Lea is exceptionally warm and generous and will go above and beyond to help with all things related to caring for a new baby and new parents. We recommend her without reservation and would work with her again in a heartbeat!
