We cannot say enough good things about Deb as a Doula or person. She became a member of our family while working for us as our night doula, and had a profound impact on the lives of our twins and us as parents.
When people ask us how we survived the newborn stage with twins (and a toddler), we say, “Deb!” There were many days we felt defeated and exhausted, but knowing Deb would arrive at 10pm (actually 9:50pm because she was always reliably early) got us through. She saved us physically and emotionally, and always had the best advice and resources to share.
We faced a number of issues with our twins that Deb guided and supported us through including severe acid-reflux (GERD), breast/bottle-feeding problems, and scary first colds and never-ending congestion... There were days the twins wouldn’t stop crying from their reflux, but somehow at night with Deb they were quiet and peaceful. We continue to believe she has magical powers as our twins are very vocal when upset and there was never a peep with her!
Deb has a broad network and referred us to many great specialists for lactation, craniosacral therapy, and even organized additional support from doulas when we needed it at the last minute. She took a lot of extra work and worries off our plate.
Deb was the best investment money could buy for our family postpartum. We had the utmost trust in her ability to care for our children with her years of experience, knowledge and expertise within the field and motherly instincts and compassion. She is highly organized, professional and non-judgmental. We cannot recommend her enough!
