Having Telisha as my husband and I doula for our first child was nothing short of AMAZING! Her knowledge and attention to details gave our family such an amazing peace about being new parents! Her service, promptness, and compassion were everything we wanted when looking for a doula! My Husband and I already informed Telisha that when we have our second child to be ready...lol! Telisha has a true gift and calling, which I honestly believe shows in how passionate she is in assisting parents on this breathtaking journey. ♥

Sometimes you just don't know what you need until it's been given to you. I am a 42 yr old working mother of 3; a set of 3 yr old twin girls and a 10mos old son. The twins came first. While it was very exciting, it was also very overwhelming at times. Telisha Woodfin came alongside me offering support in the form of meal prep, emotional support, referral advice and guidance and infant massage. She was there, not only during my pregnancy, but following delivery and in the most relevant of ways that i would not have known to ask being a new mom.....she just knew lol! If you're looking for someone who is knowledgeable, compassionate, kind, honest and sensitive to your needs.....she's the one for sure. Thank you so much Telisha for being there for me during both of my pregnancies. My family and I appreciate all you do and have done to support us.
