Bringing our firstborn into the world the way we wanted, thanks to Hope.
For our firstborn, we hired Hope as a Doula, but she has been so much more.
After taking many classes, my husband and I thought we were prepared, but without Hope we do not believe we would have had the birth we wanted. Her calming presence and reassurance were a blessing during labor in addition to her variety of coping techniques which helped me through the “peaks”. She helped to articulate our needs to our nursing and mid-wife staff so we could focus on the birth process.
Since our baby Charlie has been born, Hope has been supportive of our first steps into parent-hood from breastfeeding tips to offerings of support and referrals.
Going above and beyond, I cannot recommend or thank Hope enough for being apart of this wonderful time for our family.
