Our birth experience with Liz was nothing short of magic!
Once my contractions started, I was in contact with Liz - and she was on her way to our house for the home birth experience as the contractions were stronger and more frequent. She was with us for an entire 24-hour stretch even as our planned home birth went on longer than anticipated, and was there every step of the way as we had to transfer to the hospital for Pitocin to help progress the contractions.
She is a truly amazing person with such great skills as a doula, I would recommend Liz to anyone that is going to be haing a baby, and especially so if you are a first time expecting mother, or someone that is looking for the most peaceful birth experience possible.
Our doula Liz was an absolute godsend! During my pregnancy she helped answer the many questions I had, and was always happy to provide resources and anecdotes from her vast experience.
She helped guide me to be as informed and planful as I was wanted to be, and I learned how to advocate for myself in ways I would never have thought of on my own. She was our champion during childbirth, helping to explain and normalize the process while being such a calming and motivating presence.
Somehow her help post-partum was even more valuable - having someone come check-in after the baby arrived and we were stressed out beyond belief - was a lifesaver! Liz helped with both practical things (like getting a load of dishes done) along with deeply emotional things (like convincing a new parent that they are doing the best they can, and doing a great job). I cannot recommend her highly enough! She will always be so special for helping to bring our little boy into the world.
Liz recently provided one of my lovely home birth families with doula care. Her support skills, intuition, and gentle yet playful communication style were just what this couple needed. I've been catching babes as a nurse-midwife for 14 years now, in hospitals, birth center, and in homes. Frankly, it takes a lot to impress me... and Liz is the bomb! Smart, kind, and spot on doula care.
