Z. was our postpartum doula for 3 weeks. It was our first baby, didn’t know what to expect. I don’t know what I would have done without her. I would make a list with questions which they went over at every visit. She called my insurance to see how I could get lactation help. I got a heavenly herbal bath. She made wonderful snacks. I loved her lactation balls. She made a shopping list every day so I knew what’s missing and what she needs to make a meal the next day. She washed pumped parts when I needed to start pumping and did lots of laundry. And she listened in such a wonderful way- I truly felt heard and gained confidence in motherhood by the day.

Z. wears many hats! She is an excellent cook, such a great listener, gave so much great advice for me and my baby and gave me emotional support. She melts peoples hearts.

J., spring 2024

Z. has an undeniably grounding presence. Beyond her advice, troubleshooting, and incredible cooking, it has been her consistent calming presence that has meant the most to me as a new parent.”
