Doula support hours



"Absolutely loved my prenatal massage. At 39 weeks I had forgotten what it felt like to not be sore. Dawn was amazing at making time for me in an already busy schedule. The room was warm, clean and the music very relaxing. It was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone!"


"Dawn does not only help with my physical ailments but she helps my mind relax, which is a challenge. When I leave the office I feel like a new person. I would (and have) recommend Dawn to someone who is having some sore muscles and also to someone who just needs to take a break from life."


"Dawn was my doula for the birth of my second child. I was attempting a VBAC. I think the most invaluable support I received from her was the help in researching evidence based practices. She had some of the greatest resources. And I recall texting her late at night when something popped in my head and getting three links to articles shortly after! I felt so much more knowledgeable this time around. Although I did not get my VBAC (this time), I was able to labor to fully dilated and push for 3 hours with her help. It was so comforting to have a familiar face to greet me in the recovery room before my husband was able to join me with our new baby! There is no way I would feel this much peace with my second c-section experience if it weren't for her! I also loved how she got to know and include our whole family - my husband and our first daughter too. I would not hesitate to hire her for any future pregnancies or recommend her to anyone I know who is expecting!"
