“Anna is a great doula as she is caring and helpful without being too preachy. As a first time somewhat clueless mom, she helped me gain my sea legs without making me feel as clumsy as I probably was. Anna is a very warm person and will know exactly how to care for your baby and will help you with useful tips on how to get the baby to sleep. She is also very good at helping with breastfeeding, which can be difficult in the beginning”

“Having another set of experienced hands was so helpful. I loved getting assistance with babywearing. To be able to hold my newborn and play with my toddler at the same time was wonderful. The first thing I asked Anna to do was to go for a walk with me. I needed to know that I could care for both of my babies on my own and she gave me the confidence to do so. She was so personable. I felt like I was spending time with an old friend.”

“I learned that I have to trust myself. I also learned that a lot of what I was feeling (fear, anxiety, worry, exhaustion, doubt) was all very normal in the early days post partum. Anna shared others experiences with me and I knew I was not alone. I knew that it would get better, and things did get better with a little rest and someone to talk to. I also learned that it is important to get out of the house in the beginning. Anna also shared some resources with me regarding classes and support groups that I thought were very helpful. I wouldn’t have found them on my own. I also learned that the mother needs to be taken care of as much as the baby does!!!! No one really tells you about that. I will definitely want a doula for my next baby!”
