What clients and staff have to say...

Monica’s services as a birth doula cannot be overvalued.  Her character and good nature along with her experience make her exactly the partner you want with you as you prepare to welcome your new little one.  From being a sounding board and voice of council those last few weeks to holding space for you while in labor, Monica’s attentiveness and excitement for you and her determination to support are irreplaceable.  She is at the same time a strong advocate and a blur in the background. She’ll support when you need and disappear when you don’t; she’ll coach you and help you to achieve the best outcome possible. She won’t run over your loved ones who may be there with you; she’ll support them as well.  

Even with a little bit of hostility and weird vibes from the hospital staff during check-in, Monica handled it with a smile and so much grace that what could have been a stressful time and a bad start to the birth ended up being something to chuckle about to this day.  Simply seeing the difference in body language between other personnel and Monica was downright comical. The fact that she can swiftly handle someone else’s issues while firmly advocating for the moms she works with is reason enough to bring her on board. Words do not adequately describe how helpful it was to have Monica there.
