Doulas Credentials

"You always knew what to say and when to say it. Your coaching and visualization exercises were so helpful and you knew exactly when to go to the hospital. You were a calming presence through a hectic time your voice encouraged me and assured that the last push is all I need! You worked as a team with Melanie, our Midwife, welcoming our baby into the world peacefully and happily "– Yana
