    Testimonials

    “I have twin boys and a third singleton boy. Beth has been with me since the beginning of this adventure. I have known Beth since March 2013, when my twins were born. It is hard not to feel an instant connection the first moment you meet her. Her warmth, big heart, genuine love for kids, professionalism and desire to go above and beyond her job make her one of the best doulas out there. She is someone you want in your home to help you care for your kids. Beth served as both a day-time and night-time doula for my twins and my third (singleton) and excels at both. When Beth would come to work, her presence instantly put me at ease, as I knew that my baby/babies would be safe, well fed, burped, clean and comfortable, and she looked after me as well. She sticks to the schedule and is an excellent communicator and team player. She was always so in tune with the needs of my kids. She is knowledgeable with lactation. She is also so organized and tidy with respect to the baby/babies’ rooms, their laundry, the pump parts, bottles, etc- She is WONDERFUL in so many respects. Beth still helps me off-and-on with my kids. She has become a part of my family, and I will never let her go!”
