Bringing Our Twins Home
Amanda was crucial to our positive experience of bringing micro preemie twins home from the NICU after a 12 week stay. She was energetic, enthusiastic, and warm. We used her for overnight care full time for the first 3 months and then occasionally after that. She brought positive energy to our home. She had the confidence we needed to help support our grunty, refluxy and tiny babes. Being able to get a decent nights sleep was the key to our successful entry into parenting twins at home. She always had excellent suggestions and would use her connections for any referrals or second opinions. I have and would refer Amanda to anyone who needed a doula, she is a natural.
I had a wonderful experience with Amanda!! We are first time parents and Amanda was there to provide support whenver we needed it. I had a complicated labor and delivery and having her help and guidance is what got us through the first several weeks as new parents. I will be using her again for our next child. I highly recommend her!
She is a total baby person!
My husband and I were so grateful to work with Amanda when we were first home with our son. Amanda taught us so much about caring for a baby. I kept a running list of “Amanda questions” to ask, which was super useful and comforting. Our baby was preemie and not initially able to breastfeed effectively, so she helped us figure out what we were doing, from pumping to bottle feeding to nursing. She also enabled us to simply pause, breathe, sleep (hooray!), and feel absolutely confident that our baby was being well taken care of. And with her patience, understanding, and encouragement, she provided important emotional support when we needed it. Before meeting Amanda, I was concerned that having a doula in our home might feel obtrusive, but it was the opposite. I felt incredibly comfortable with Amanda, and I loved our talks during late-night baby sessions on the couch. Amanda is a total baby person who cares deeply about families and understands people; I highly recommend her!
An Angel Sent from Above
Amanda was an angel sent from above for us. I was hesitant to have a "stranger" help us take care of our babies, let alone during the middle of the night. Once my husband and I met her for the first time, we knew we would be in good hands. She did everything and more that she promised us.
Amanda is reliable, responsible, educated, soothing, and loves the babies she works with. It is obvious that she takes her job serious. I could always see it in her face and actions that she truly cared for our twin girls. We had Amanda help us from the time they were one week old to four months old. She helped me with any questions I had and if she didn't know the answer, she would take time in the middle of the night to research it and find an answer for me. She is a sensitive person to individual families needs and does not "cross the line". She even took the time to respond to questions I had later on down the road when I reached out to her and attended our girl's first birthday party. I truly cant imagine what our lives would have been like if she hadn't been there. Mine, my husband's and my girls mental well-being was strongly influenced by all she did for us. We can't thank her enough!
I would highly recommend Amanda!
Drawn to Her Open and Loving Energy
We chose Amanda to be our labor doula for our first baby born August, 2016 and there's no doubt that we made the right choice! After interviewing several doulas, we were drawn to Amanda's open and loving energy. We had several prenatal visits with Amanda where she helped answer any questions we had (many) and gave us lots of useful tips and tricks for optimal fetal positioning, staying relaxed and more. I did these exercises religiously throughout my pregnancy and am convinced they played a huge role in my easy, amazing birth experience. At the birth, Amanda's calming energy helped me transition quickly and experience a very quick active labor. Our daughter, Zoe was born in the water without any drugs or interventions and Amanda played an integral role in this most beautiful process of my life!
We Consider Amanda Family
Amanda is an angel. When we gave birth to our son we did not have family close by to help out and neither of us had ever been around babies. We did not know the first thing about caring for a baby, much less ourselves as new parents. Amanda kept us sane. She helped me take care of our little one, but mostly she took care of me and my husband. She answered every question possible, she listened to me cry when needed, and she even spent the night several times to help ease the sleep-deprivation. We consider Amanda family, and we feel lucky that she is still a major part of our lives.
Very Knowledgeable, Great Listener
We used Amanda as our postpartum doula after the birth of our second child. My son had colic and we were so thankful to have her help and support during this difficult time. She was patient and caring with our fussy baby and also helped care for our two year old. She was amazing with both kids, we trusted her and felt completely at ease while our kids were in her care. She also offered breastfeeding advice and support and help in dealing with a variety of postpartum issues. She is very knowledgeable and a great listener, I would highly recommend using her as your postpartum doula, we couldn't have made it without her!
Thank God for Her
Amanda was sent from above to help my "whole family". She first came on one of my hardest days at just the right time. She is more than a doula, She is God sent! I get a little teary-eyed thinking about how lucky we were to have her. She was there for me, my premature twins and my 2-year-old. When I was scared she wasn't. Thank God for her
She Does It All
Three years ago I was a first-time mom of twin daughters with a traveling husband! I cannot tell you how much it meant to find someone like Amanda to trust during those early days. She is dependable, loving, knowledgeable and works from her heart. If want a nurturing woman to help both mama and baby, look no further. She is a wonderful angel and you can finally get some sleep 🙂
I Got to Sleep!
