Andrea was very attentive to me and my needs. She helped me through my pregnancy as this was my first and I had no idea what I was in for. She helped me prepare for all the things I never would've guessed if it weren't for her. Then when it came time to deliver she helped me manage my pain in various ways. So much so that I lasted 12 hours before getting an epidural. She took notes on everything that was happening throughout my labor and made sure I felt safe and comfortable. Even after giving birth she checked on my well being and made sure my post partum was in check. I am so appreciative of Andrea and don't know how I would've gotten through my birth without her.

Andrea was highly recommended to me through my sister-in-law's friend. I had a different type of pregnancy because I was carrying a sick baby that eventually became a stillborn. Andrea provided so much comfort to my husband and I during the delivery process and her prenatal/postpartum sessions. She is so empathetic and has such a calming sounding voice that puts you at ease when having conversations with her. Even though we were unable to bring our baby home, she still accommodated her services to fit the needs that we needed. I would highly recommend Andrea to be anybody's doulas. I would hire her again for my future pregnancies.
