Testimonials

“Amelia was incredibly supportive of me (and my husband) throughout the entire labor and birth, and if I were to have a third child I would definitely want her to doula by my side. My husband, who was initially unsure of why we needed a doula, later said that having Amelia there was “like having another husband there…one that knows exactly what to say and do.” And he was right.”

"If you are looking for calm, quiet encouragement during your birthing experience, then Amelia is an excellent choice!"

Brandi M.

"She stayed with me for nearly a full day, and kept in touch afterwards to see how I was doing physically and emotionally, as well as to see how my baby was. I could truly see her being a lifelong friend."

KC

"Having Amelia at the birth was so beneficial. She was such a calming influence on the entire experience. I truly feel that I owe my VBAC experience to her."

Jenna Y

"Su apoyo fue esencial mucho más en nuestro caso que no contábamos con la ayuda de ningún familiar ni amigo."

D & L

"Amelia came and rescue us like an angel when we were in a dire need of some motherly figure. She is very knowledgable, compassionate, loving,caring, super positive and overall a very calming presence."

Al Amin K

"After birth I was having trouble with my milk and breastfeeding and I completely feel that Amelia helped me become successful at breastfeeding."

Carrie L

"Amelia is so patient, loving, kind, and such a calming presence. I don’t know how I could have gotten through the experience of birth as a first time mother without her gentle support."

Megan R

"Amelia helped in so many ways, it is hard to list them….the magic she worked on my lower back was priceless. She also did a great job of involving my husband; she really was there to support the whole family."

Casey S

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb...
