Our Baby Nest doula was worth her weight in gold at our birth! Her experience enabled her to give us specific suggestions about exactly how to relax and what to do. She also has a quiet presence and doesn’t ever feel intrusive—she’s there when you need her and then she fades naturally into background. Always positive and respectful, I’d highly recommend a Baby Nest doula to support you in your baby’s birth!Miranda W.
