"After learning we were pregnant with our second child. I begin to worry about the labor and delivery part of this pregnancy since my first experience through it was a nightmare. After the first of the year we found out that my husband would not be there for the birth of our son, which just added to my anxiety (no family anywhere close by and now no husband).  

But along came Steph, a god sent, that explained to me what a doula is and does and became my greatest motivator through

the part I feared the absolute most. Steph was so knowledgeable in helping me come up with a great birth plan and gave me great suggestions to maybe try that I had never heard of like catching your baby and delayed clamping.  She made my birthing experience so uplifting and peaceful that I didn't feel the need to have an epidural and actually

fell asleep while hard laboring in the tub. I truly can't say enough wonderful things about my experience the second time

around and my choice to have Steph as my doula. And IF we are ever blessed with a third child I would definitely

fly Steph in from anywhere in the world to have her again by my side!"

"A big thank you to my Doula Steph for holding my hand, 
massaging me, helping me breathe and being such a positive influence throughout the whole process as well!
​I really don't know if I could've done it without you!"       
-Jaimie Walker 

I am so glad I had Steph by my side as my doula. She kept me both focused and relaxed, even when things didn't go as planned. Over all I had a great experience with her and would highly recommend Steph to anyone who needed her services.

"​​Steph is an amazing doula! She was so supportive of the VBAC I hoped for. My first birth was traumatic and

I needed this one to be a healing experience. She made that happen! I wasn't able to have the VBAC that I wanted 
but she still stood by me and never made me feel uncomfortable with the unfortunate change of plans.
When my husband decided he was too squeamish to sit in on the surgery, Steph sat in for him. She took pictures as my son was pulled from my uterus. She also held my son and fought to keep him in the OR a little longer so I could see him before they took him to the nursery where my husband was waiting. In the beginning, as I was prepped for surgery,
I fought tears. When she came into the OR I prayed she didn't ask me how I was doing or feeling. Those are my trigger words
and I would have started bawling. She never asked! It was like she knew! Instead she commented on the size
​of the OR. I laughed to myself and realized I could not have picked a better person to help me through this journey."  -Nicole Paul
"Steph was an amazing support during the end of my pregnancy, 
my birth and after.  She helped me believe in my ability to birth naturally.  She is very knowledgeable and taught me some great ways of
handling my most painful contractions.  She was also great on her postpartum visits, helping me catch up on my chores. 
I had an amazing birth experience and am forever grateful for her support."

"Where do I even begin! Maybe by listing a few words that describe Steph; knowledgeable, funny, helpful, kind, loving, caring, attentive and AMAZING just to name a few of her qualities! I heard about Steph from a co-worker who had seen rave reviews about her massages and wealth of knowledge about essential oils. Being a first time mom and life long panic queen, I knew Steph would have her work cut out for her! After meeting her I knew she would be the perfect fit for my growing family. My husband only referred to her as "The Wizard" Steph truly is magical. She was available via text or phone to answer any of my 600 daily questions. She normally responded with "Lauren were you on Google at 3am again"? "This is totally normal and here's why" followed with the medical description of what my body was doing.

On my daughters "eviction day" (9 days late I might add!) Steph was by my side supporting me for 20 straight UNMEDICATED hours! I had to have an Emergency cesarean due to my daughters cord being tied in a true knot but Steph was

right there explaining everything. I could not have had such an amazing birth without you Steph!!

I just hope we live near each other for my next birth!!"

"To all the mommies to be: If you are looking for a doula, I highly recommend Steph. She was my doula for my first child.

I was very nervous, actually, frightened about the birthing experience. Steph is very easy to talk to and passionate about what she does. Her compassion for mommies and babies are evident and a necessity as a Doula.

Steph was an excellent mentor during my pregnancy with her wealth of knowledge about pregnancy and childbirth.

She immediately put my concerns and worries at ease. I was no longer frightened about giving birth but excited.

While I was in labor, her sweet calming voice helped guide me through my contractions. Her doula techniques (pressure holds, massages, essential oils, etc.) are AMAZING. I remember going through one of the worst contractions ever while standing and Steph helped me through it with her special doula massage for labor pains.

Not only was she a wonderful guide for me but for my husband as well. At first, My husband was hesitant about having a doula. Since the birth of our child, he has said countless of times that he was relieved when Steph came into the delivery room and wouldn’t of known what to do without her and she was also the best investment we have ever made. We will forever be grateful for her support and guidance both through my pregnancy and birth of our precious little boy."

"My labor was difficult, but from the time we got to the birth center Steph easily befriended the whole staff, 
my doctor included. She was able to create an environment where everyone was happy to work together with zero drama. I gave birth surrounded by a very supportive group, even when things were going different than expected.
I can’t stress enough how important it is to have that support and harmony around you during labor."

DOULA TESTIMONIALS

"I decided to have a natural labor for my second birth and was lucky enough to
find Steph through a cloth diaper site on Facebook. I reached out to her and
there began the journey into learning about what a doula does. I was fortunate enough to work with Steph and be consulted with 3 times before the birth and
once after too. When I went into labor Steph was there within 30 min and promptly attended to me and my needs. She could read my body
language and engage in a way that brought comfort and support. 
Steph provided a stable and calm environment to where I felt extremely comfortable. I am grateful for the assistance and support she provided me,
and I am going to recommend her to everyone I know who wants a natural and supportive birth. Thank you so much Steph for everything you have done for me! 
I couldn't of had a more beautiful natural birth without the support from you!"
