"Elizabeth was amazing! Prior to birth, she always responded to my texts quickly and offered so much emotional support. When it came time for labor, Elizabeth was the perfect fit for us. She showed my husband ways of offering counter pressure, and she gave helpful suggestions for coping through contractions. She brought supplies that came in very handy (like a hand held fan when I was very hot) and she was a calming presence throughout our birth. She took priceless photos and videos of our birth that I cherish so much! I would absolutely recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking for a doula!"
“Oh my goodness! I absolutely love you! You always answer every single one of my questions and always make me feel so much better! I can't express to you how much you have helped me out throughout this pregnancy with your answers to my crazy questions.”
"During my second pregnancy, I found myself bragging to others about the wonderful doula I had as a support. Elizabeth brings a calming, positive and easy-going energy into the room. She is confident in her role and has the necessary experience to support not only the individual giving birth, but also the support person in the room. I did not know what to expect from Elizabeth as a doula in terms of the actual support to be offered when the time for labor came- I thought that things would go smoothly and that for the most part it would be to help my husband be present in the experience. BUT… every pregnancy is different, and so is every labor. Elizabeth was a huge support to me during my induction by supporting with various positions to help the baby move, ensuring I was changing positions every 30 minutes, providing additional information related to options presented by hospital staff to speed up labor, and being there for my husband to talk to as he was experiencing his own emotions related to the induction. The hospital staff were happy with the knowledge Elizabeth brought and that I was often already in a position they would recommend, which made their jobs easier and allowed them to focus on other aspects of my care. And once the contractions really started coming, Elizabeth was right there to coach me through them (my husband was, too, but he couldn’t focus on the coaching piece as well as she could). She even helped capture some of the first moments with my son! In terms of postpartum care, she was the first person to hear my birth story (even though she was there for it) and listened to me share my experience of recovery. The emotional trauma would have been far greater for my husband and I if it were not for the support we got from Elizabeth. My husband and I agree that we want Elizabeth to come back as our doula for baby number 3!”
"Elizabeth was my doula for the birth of my baby boy in October (2021). I could not have asked for more amazing support or guidance through my intense experience with labor and delivery. Because she was there, my husband was never left wondering what to do to help me. She was there to help me make tough decisions about my birth plan when things weren’t going the way I prepared for and was there by my side through everything that goes along with an emergency c-section. I am so grateful for her care and expertise and we would have been lost without her."
