We can not think of having a baby without doula. Our friends said it would best the best decision we could ever make, and it was. Thanks Janet for your help, guidance, and support during our pregnancy. Your presence at our delivery made a big difference!

At first we didn't know if we could afford the cost but after our shower we had plenty of money to pay for our doula." Our family thought it was a great idea to have a Doula shower. I have suggested this method to getting what you really need - someone to help at the birth.

As a new Dad I was afraid that I would let my wife down when the tough part started in labor. Janet was very reassuring and supportive to both of us. She showed me how to do the double hip squeeze and back pressure support. My wife was able to give birth the way she wanted, with no medications. Our baby girl was born alert and breastfed shortly after birth with the help of our knowledgeable doula Janet. I think every dad could use a doula and the cost is very minimal. Actually the last thing in considering her expertise in helping parents was the money.
Doulas are the best thing that ever happened for new/expecting dads.
Thank you very much, Janet was a big help and I will suggest anyone who is expecting to consider getting a doula.
Having Janet as our doula really helped me through the stages of labor – I avoided an epidural and made our experience wonderful. We will definitely recommend her and call her for our next baby.
For first time parents to be having a doula is a must. Having that extra person with the knowledge of what is going on and what is coming up.
When the pain was really bad and I felt I couldn’t go on Janet was a godsend from Heaven. Her organization and planning skills helped things go smoothly. She has a tremendous sense of humor that was essential in keeping things light. A doula functions as friend, mentor, and most importantly support person. Janet was all of these things as well as an expert on breastfeeding. She got me through the toughest part of labor when I wanted to give up and quit. She made me realize my body was not betraying me and that the pain had a purpose. Although I was disappointed I ended up with a c-section. Janet helped me to realize a healthy mom and baby make for a successful birth no matter how the child is born. I also appreciated Janet’s knowledge of the internal workings of the maternity ward and its staff. I am very glad she was part of our miracle.
