What clients say about postpartum care:
"Just a few months ago, we had never met Laura. Now she is an integral part of our family! We were first attracted to Laura because she has her own twins and extensive, extensive experience and training in early childhood development and care. After a very high risk pregnancy following years of infertility, we were very cautious about who might care for our children. We are so blessed to have found Laura! She cares for our children in a kind, capable and compassionate manner and we know they are in good hands whenever they are with her. It is such a comfort to have overnight care. In addition, we have had the opportunity to get to know her family and they are equally amazing. We would highly recommend Laura as a wonderful doula!" R.H.
"We see Laura's services as necessary not a luxury. Sleep deprivation after a newborn is not the usual tiredness people complain of at work. Laura was more than just someone to watch our son overnight and pass him for feeding when needed. Her expertise about newborns is extensive." A.S.
