Amanda was by our side as we welcomed our first into the world, during the pandemic. It was a time filled with unknowns, and Amanda was a constant for us- constant support, encouragement, and confidence- not only for me, but also my husband, and our new daughter. As a new mom postpartum, Amanda checked in to see how I was doing, bring us a meal, and offer support as we became a family of 3. I will scream from the rooftops that every family should have a doula by their side, and Amanda is the best of the best.

Having Amanda was an amazing doula for my wife and I. She put my mind at ease early on by saying that she was not there to replace me as the husband in the birthing process but to help support my wife and I. Amanda was an essential part of our birthing journey and I am so grateful that she was there to help us through the process!
