What People Are Saying About Our Newborn & Doula Services…
Best people and care! Helped me transition into motherhood and gave me peace of mind at night during the stressful first weeks.
The first several weeks after our son was born were awful. Between colic and then severe reflux, his sleeping saga was tumultuous and we were desperate for support, which we more than found from Lisa at Nurtured Foundation! We started working with her even before official sleep training could begin- getting him on a schedule that would set him up best for success when it came time for sleep training. Sure enough, at a little over 4 months, he was well prepared. Thanks to Lisa’s amazing guidance (and her immediately responsive communication), expertise, and reassurance- our son at long last is sleeping consistently in his own room without any sleep crutches! Our family’s overall well-being- mentally and physically- has immensely improved and we are forever grateful!
I would never have a baby again without the support of Nurtured Foundation Doulas! Kristen was a fabulous resource from the time of contract signing throughout our son’s arrival. She was casual yet professional during our prenatal visits, checked in often during pre-labor, was prompt to arrive when I went into active labor, and supported me and my husband with the utmost care & compassion throughout a long and unexpected birth. Thank you for empowering women (esp first time mamas) to have a positive birth experience!
From the moment we first spoke with Lisa, we felt that at ease that this would be the best source of support and help for my daughter and her newborn twins. Lisa, Meg and Cassandra were excellent nighttime support help and they helped my daughter and her husband with everything from scheduling the feedings and bathing a baby (or two) who hated being undressed to solving their bottle feeding issues. I would highly recommend Lisa and her staff to parents of newborns, whether single or multiples!
Everyone that has worked with our family from Nurtured Foundation was so caring, sensitive to our family needs and knowledgeable on helping me as a first time mom. I wish I would have known about them sooner ( I didn’t contract them until about 10 days after having the baby- a friend recommended them to me and they would have been so helpful the first couple of nights home if I had found them sooner)! With my next I will make sure to have them lined up in advance as they make those first couple days/weeks/months easier on mom and dad. Our doula stayed with us up until my son was 6 months old and we even brought her on 2 vacations with us for the added help of regulating and promoting good naps, helping with introducing solid foods, and keeping baby on a routine. They helped my baby learn good sleep habits since he was a newborn and has slept through the night since he was 4 months old. I cannot rave more about this company and all the wonderful people who have helped my journey into motherhood!
