"We're grateful for our birth experience! Every time I tell a close friend about it I cry tears of joy and gratitude. Brandy, thank you so much for empowering us and supporting us to make it happen. We'll never forget it and are so grateful!"

We had an amazing birth experience with Brandy as our doula. The journey with her began when my husband and I took the Bradley Method Class with her and Erikka. I knew immediately I wanted one of them as my doula. They worked with us before the birth to fully understand what we wanted from the experience. I had mild contractions for several days prior to the birth, and Brandy worked with us over the phone to advise on comfort techniques and discuss timing to go to the hospital. Labor progressed very quickly for me with her help, and it was incredibly comforting to have her there when things got scary for me as a first time mom. I found peace in her calm reassurance. She coached me through each contraction and encouraged different ways to remain comfortable. I can’t imagine not having had her by my side for my baby’s birth. Her wisdom and support was priceless and pivotal in creating what we considered the ideal birth experience. My husband and I are beyond grateful for the role she played in the most best day of our lives!
"She went above and beyond after the birth as well when she came to my home the next day. She helped set up my bedroom with organization and supplies for comfort, caring for my baby, and healing. Erikka is a wealth of knowledge and her peaceful and joyful presence is a gift. "

I'm so thankful Erikka was a witness and support for me as I brought my son into the world. I couldn't have--and wouldn't have wanted to--navigate my pregnancy and birth without her. I finished feeling stronger and more empowered than I thought I would, in part because of Erikka's incredible knowledge and support. I'd recommend her services to any mama looking for an advocate and ally in the beautiful process of creating, sustaining, and delivering life
