Thank you for your kind words.
Thank you for your kind words.
Kizzy was amazing at checking in with me and giving me added support without hesitation. She was quick to respond to any questions and was extremely comforting during this new experience. Kizzy was able to relieve my husband before active labor started, giving him a much needed energy boost for when I needed him the most. I would have had Kizzy over much more than our allocated times as she allowed me rest and time to do thing I wanted/needed to do during a period where I most needed the breaks. The whole process was amazing and I will constantly recommend Holistic Birth & Beyond/ Kizzy to anyone looking for additional support as they navigate new parenthood.
Mel was fantastic to work with, even though things did not go quite according to plan. She was kind, warm, and professional, and instantly put us at ease during the interview and prenatal visit, patiently answering all our questions and talking through various labor options.
Samantha was great at providing me with evidence based information and emotional support with making some hard decisions along the way. Samantha was fantastic about sticking it out through my VERY long labor. She even slept at the hospital with us which was so amazing of her. Overall Samantha was a great part of my birth experience.
Thank you! This service was absolutely essential! You made it all very easy, very comfortable, very secure!
She offered tons of resources for any topics we were curious about and showed us ways that my husband could support me through some pain I was experiencing from the pregnancy. She took the time to build a rapport with both of us before the birth which made us both that much more comfortable that day.
I interviewed a few doulas from other groups and none of them compared to what is offered here, nor did I feel as confident as I did meeting with Allison and Kizzy. I cannot find the words to express my appreciation or gratitude for the two of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Both my partner and I are so grateful to have had Bruna for support. Don't know what I would have done without that low back counter pressure! Over all amazing experience and extremely grateful for all of the information, communication and other support both from Bruna and Allison. Thank you both!
I cannot express well enough what her support and presence meant to me as I prepared for my labor and during my actual delivery. She was also very helpful and supportive during my postpartum time and ensured to check in with me and provide support as needed.
Great experience! Trisha is a wealth of knowledge!
Extremely impressed; felt like I couldn’t have done it without her. Ashley was so beyond helpful and made my daughter feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She’s amazing!
She was there for me for all of my needs even texting me on my way to the hospital encouraging me, which I really needed! She knew how important a VBAC was to me and physically and especially emotionally supported me through it all. I ended up having a c-section which was medically necessary and she was so great through all of that as well.
Even though I did not get the delivery that I hoped for, due to medical reasons, Melanie was so supportive in all of my choices and gave great advice and really helped me during my trial of labor. She was right there in the OR for my delivery, encouraging me still! I could not have asked for a better doula! If my Husband and I try for another baby we will definitely be calling her again!
It was like having your best friend in the room with you. She was incredibly attentive and met my needs before I even knew I had them. She was a source of calm, comfort, and encouragement when I needed it most. She advocated for my needs and desires with the medical team and partnered with the nursing staff to ensure I received the most exceptional care.
So glad I had a doula! It’s been so helpful both during pregnancy and postpartum. The overnight stays are the best!
Molly was an important support to us even in the short time we had with her in my third trimester. She was knowledgeable, connected well with us and showed she really cared about our second birth story as it unfolded. It’s important for me to feel like I can trust anyone involved in such a vulnerable experience and I definitely felt that I could trust her.
I was on the fence in the beginning about whether I really needed a doula or not and once I decided to get an epidural I really wasn’t sure I needed the extra support as my original birth plan was to go unmedicated which is why I wanted the extra support to get me through the contractions. However, Melissa was amazing and I’m so glad that we had her there. She’s been a great resource throughout the pregnancy, birth and postpartum and I would 100% be interested in working with her again if we decide to have another.
I met Becky over zoom and from the beginning I could tell she was very genuine and was looking out for my interest.
Becky was very attentive to all my text messages, and I felt safe texting her anything, at any time. She got to the hospital at the perfect time right when I checked in the triage. Becky was a quiet strong force I would say during my delivery. I felt like she was very present with me, but also not pushy regarding what position I should be in or just talking to talk. She was just a strong support and I really enjoyed that she really was wanting whatever was best for me. She was very much going with the flow of whatever pace I set.
Becky and I texted before and after our post partum visit. I think that was really helpful because there are just so many little questions you have. She also came out to our house and we just talked about everything and I think that was just really reassuring for me and nice to have that extra help and assurance during the postpartum period.
My favorite thing about Becky is that she is a quiet and strong presence. I felt like she was very confident, soothing and not pushy. So she was a perfect match for me! :-)
Samantha was very informative during our prenatal visit. She walked us through all of the options for our birth plan in great detail and offered options to ease stress and encourage healthy labor and delivery, such as medjool dates and red raspberry leaf tea. She spent more time with us than what is typically allotted which was greatly appreciated.
Haleigh was able to guide me into different positions, provide counter pressure/massage to offset my pain to make it bearable. She created a cozy labor environment with string lights, essential oils, and with her calm presence. She truly was more knowledgeable about labor positions/newborn positions than our nurses. Because of her support I was able to labor 30 hours (most of the labor at 9cm) without an epidural before I chose to have an epidural so I could be present and enjoy the birth of my son. She comforted me when I got to the point where I chose an epidural because I had never thought I would need it. It was a hard decision for me, but she empowered me throughout every step and it ended up being exactly what I needed. I know I did everything in my power before choosing medication because of my doula support. To summarize, a doula is worth every penny and more!
I didn’t know how much I needed a doula until I was in the midst of it all! As an empowered, registered nurse (previous postpartum nurse), with high pain tolerance one might think I wouldn’t benefit from a doula. That could not be further from the truth. I can say for a fact I would never consider laboring without the support of a doula. Doulas are saints and are worth every penny!
I loved that I had options of a few doulas and had zoom meetings to see if we would be the right fit for each other. Thank you so much!!
Jenny was so helpful during my labor and delivery. She provided such great emotional support and made me feel so safe. Could not have had a better experience!
Nikki was fantastic and I’m so thankful she was able to help my husband and I have the birth
experience we both wanted. The hospital nurses told us that they thought she was an amazing
advocate for my husband and I and they were also really impressed with her.
I could not say enough great things about Joanne, she was amazing from the first meeting we had with her. Her energy and advice through the process to her support during labor is something we will forever be grateful for.
Just thank you again! We’re so happy to have found this help during such a precious time in our lives. We had a traumatic labor experience but Joanne’s professional experience and calm demeanor was everything, so thank you!
