I discovered Elysabeth when I was searching for a doula of color and was impressed by the amount of services she provided. As a first time mom with preexisting anxiety I had a lot of thoughts and questions but there wasn't a single subject I couldn't discuss warmly with Elysabeth and she was always full of resources. I had a long labor with a traumatic birth and she stayed extra in order to comfort my husband and newborn as they awaited my recovery. Her postpartum care was also excellent in times where I needed to catch up on sleep. She's also a brilliant photographer(I'm really picky), I thought my baby was fussy the whole photoshoot but somehow the photos turned out amazing! Definitely recommend her!

My first birth with my daughter was traumatic. I felt that no one was listening to me nor had my best interest in mind. This is why I knew I wanted a doula when I became pregnant with my son. Since my kids are 5 years apart, I felt like I was relearning everything again. Elysabeth gave me guidance I needed, listened to my concerns, and provided me with invaluable resources. This time around I felt heard and in control during my pregnancy and the birth. She’s kind, patient, and respectful. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for support in their pregnancy and during delivery.
