A huge thank you to Emma for support, sleep and sanity! A friend with 3 children had recommended her when I was looking for someone, citing how incredible she was. Emma provided a mix of day and night help for us as a postpartum doula for our newborn twins, along with sleep training when they were closer to 12 weeks. I didn’t think it would be possible to go 12 hours between feeds by 12 weeks with twins but she made it possible, which I appreciate every morning! During her overnight stays with the boys I felt confident knowing that she had everything under control. Each morning my boys were happy and everything organized again! She also provided very helpful tips and feedback on all of their issues- reflux, gas, etc. We learned so much and felt even more comfortable as parents. (And I should also note that as a person Emma is very kind and patient, and listened thoughtfully to all our concerns). Thank you Emma for getting us through the 4th trimester!!!
Emma is an excellent doula. She is young, passionate, caring, devoted, impressively experienced and resourceful. I took prenatal courses from the hospital, but I still found consultation session with Emma gave me more personalized tips a formal course didn't provide. Emma gave me advise on natural induction, preparing hospital bag, eating, exercises, many of which I never heard from other places. I had questions about my own detailed yoga and walking exercises design from 37 weeks on; news of dilation from 38 weeks check-up; news
of 39 weeks ultrasounds , etc, it felt great to know there is a person to talk to anytime whenever I have something comes up. This makes my journey much less lonely! In the postpartum period, I had perineal pain and breastfeeding issues, Emma gave me consultation with tips of increasing milk supply I never knew and urged me to contact lactation consultant. Overall I am very glad I had Emma by my side in this lonely journey of childbirth, she gave me so much valuable supports! I definitely recommend Emma.
