We had a wonderful experience working with Kristen. She was super compassionate and supportive and offered so much helpful information and support before, during, and after labor. My labor didn’t go as expected, but I’m so glad Kristen was there in the room to support me and my husband. She has also been helpful postpartum with breastfeeding. Really grateful we hired her and recommend her to anyone looking for a doula.

Absolutely wonderful experience! Merav knew exactly what I needed at each stage of pregnancy and labor. In the end, we got my unmedicated VBAC (except for a whiffAustin of laughing gas at the end)! Thank you Nurtured Foundation and Merav 😁

My husband and I both agree that hiring Ashley as our doula was the best choice we made in preparing for the birth of our son. She offered so much support to each of us through our time together…Her nurturing energy radiates a passion for childbirth and motherhood. When the time comes for us to welcome another child I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
