"Someone told me that the role of a postpartum doula is to "mother the mother" and that's EXACTLY what Andrea did for me".
"Whether it was helping with feeding challenges or answering questions about child development, she was always a kind and guiding presence. She is so dedicated and always went the extra mile to make us feel supported".
Andrea helped reassure me that I was doing the right thing at a time when I was constantly second guessing myself. She made us feel so comfortable, my husband and I were able to completely shut off at night and replenish.
"I loved the non-judgmental nature of her support. She was open to other choices I wanted. She was a fabulous listener!"
"Andrea was of a completely different caliber than anyone else we spoke with. She was able to come in, immediately connect with our son, and deliver results within a few nights. She has a gentle touch and we felt immediately comfortable with her working with our son".
"I totally underestimated the value of rest and recovery that Andrea helped facilitate with her service!"
"Andrea is great at what she does...call her a baby whisperer or baby ninja. Her many years of experience with infants and as a mother of 3 shows in her unwavering patience, deep knowledge and empathetic wisdom. She guided me through an incredibly tough time and helped me find joy in the early journey of motherhood. I couldn't imagine the experience without her."
We completely underestimated the impact Andrea's support would have on our family. Her support let us get a mental and physical break, and made our adjustment to being a family of four a happy time.
We are so grateful for Andrea's services. I gave my baby to her with absolute confidence and got some much need rest!
"Her attention to the mother in addition to her attention to the twins, her connection to resources, and her followup with materials were the strengths of her service!"
"Andrea was totally professional, knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable. She was so confident, and made me feel that at least someone was watching out for my well being!"
"Andrea was very empathetic and supportive about my physical recovery and adjustment to parenthood. We could not have survived without her assistance, she was so incredibly helpful!"
"A natural with the baby, Andrea taught us so many new things! She was willing to do everything we needed...and more!
Would we recommend her to another family?"
YES. YES. YES. YES. YES. YES!

"If the Hubs wants to get you a "push present", skip the jewelry, bag, blah blah blah etc because those things are not going hold your colicky baby in the middle of the night or save you from becoming a sleep deprived zombie! Call Andrea instead! (She books up fast because the word is out about how amazing she is)".
