TESTIMONIALS

I was blessed to have Ashley at my home for the first eight nights after I gave birth to my little girl. Ashley was amazing! She helped me though many new challenges and made me feel so comforted. She came to my home as a stranger and left as a friend. I was so fortunate.

Amanda was wonderful – we used her for several nights. She was available on very short notice, which we really appreciated. She was great with our son and he was so comfortable with her. She allowed me to get plenty of rest and helped us figure out the best way to get our son to sleep. In addition, she was genuinely a nice and caring person…it was the best decision we made during the early weeks!

The best decision we made with our daughter’s birth was to hire Nurtured Foundation Doula Services – Ashley supported us through the birth experience, while Lisa helped us once we brought our daughter home from the NICU. Being a first-time mom and an only child myself, I was unfamiliar with babies in general. Needless to say, both hubby and I needed all the help we could get and called Nurtured Foundation to help us navigate this new adventure. Ashley was friendly, professional, and helpful in navigating through my birth preferences. Over the course of a coupe hours, we had a birth plan drafted and I felt calm about giving birth, thanks to the preparation and discussion with Ashley. When the big day came unexpectedly, I felt a sense of overall calm knowing that Ashley would be by my side- even though the birth plan went out the window! She was wonderful coach, and I don’t regret having her on my team. Even though she ended up having to coach me through less than one intense hour of labor! ? Our daughter was a preemie, and so we felt extra cautious bringing her home from the NICU. Lisa was wonderful with our daughter – not only did she have plenty of experience with post-NICU babies (and twins at that!), she totally fell in love with our daughter, treating her just as she would her own baby. Lisa is a true baby whisperer, and was immensely helpful in showing me her super-practical methods for feeding, bathing, diaper changes, baby carriers, and the list goes on and on. I could trust Lisa to feed and entertain my little one so I could take a nap. She also did light housework so I could hold my little one instead of worrying about the laundry or the dishes piling up. She even loaded my daughter into the stroller and the three of us took walks around the neighborhood when I felt too “cooped up.” With Lisa’s help, I was able to gain lots of “mommy confidence” in just a few short weeks. Nurtured Foundation turned what could have been a stressful experience into an enjoyable one!
