"Ms. Debbie has cared for our daughter (3 months) and our son (2.5 years). She is a kind, caring and warm soul who takes care of our children as if they were her own. I like to say that she is a "baby whisperer" as she took such great care of my daughter on overnights during the newborn period. Debbie is reliable,resourceful, and goes above and beyond to keep the children well cared for. I trust her wholeheartedly with my two loves and give her my highest recommendation."

"Debbie was instrumental for my health and well being in the first few months after my twins were born. She was very supportive and bent over backwards to help me get the sleep I so desperately needed. Most importantly I could tell that she genuinely cared about my babies. This gave me the piece of mind so that I could actually sleep when she was there. I highly recommend Debbie!"

"As a new mother I was very nervous about everything! The comfort level I ad with Debbie caring for my daughter was a blessing. I was able to enjoy my time away knowing that she was getting the care and love that I wanted her to have. Debbie's knowledge of newborn care was so helpful. I had a million questions and tons of concerns. Her calm demeanor and willingness to give me advice was a life saver! I credit her for helping me become the confident mother I needed and wanted to be."

"Meeting Debbie was our first experience with a doula and we approached it with some hesitation and anxiety. However, we knew we needed help with our five day old (4 and 2.5yr also at home) with my sister's wedding weekend. It was like we had known her for years...she was a natural, completely at ease with our daughter. Debbie is patient and loving and incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to nursing and infant care. She is perceptive and attentive to parents and able to meet their needs without being overbearing. Debbie takes her job seriously and gives fully of herself to the families she works with."

My wife and I met Debbie shortly after the birth of our two boys in July. She came highly recommended from our birth doula. From the moment of our first meeting with her to discuss expectations and requirements we felt an instant connection to her and an overall great comfort level. As first time parents we were very hesitant about who we would bring in to be with our boys and Debbie right form the get go has eased those concerns.
We started out with her working roughly every other night to allow us time to rest in the evenings, this was very important to me as my wife had suffered some postpartum depression very soon after the birth. Debbie allowed us the flexibility to not only take care of our children but also ensure we were taken care of as well. On a nightly basis she has assisted in all feeds and diaper changes for both the boys, helped with any light housework that is needed to be done such as dishes, and has gone above and beyond to even prepare coffee in the morning for my wife.
She is very accommodating to our needs by staying late or coming in early if needed. She has been great with the boys for the past four months and we are grateful for the help and advice she has provided along the way. As we have started to transition of a doula and as the boys are sleeping most of the night now Debbie has been a great help in allowing us the freedom as a couple to do a little bit more together. We had not heard of a postpartum doula prior to our pregnancy and after going through everything and being with Debbie I would not change a thing. I highly recommend Debbie to anyone especially those with twins as she is great at caring care of the whole family.
