I’m proud to have received wonderful feedback from some of the families I've been honored to witness.
For me, the most rewarding part of this work is building strong, beautiful relationships with my clients and sharing in some of the most memorable moments of their lives.
Feel free to browse some of their testimonials below.
I cannot recommend Lydia enough as both a doula and a massage therapist. Not only did she support with a lot of information and planning before my birth (including a very succinct and organized birth plan) but she was also unshakably there for me as I needed during a 52-hour labor with two surgeries directly following the birth. She was a support not only to me but to my husband during an incredibly scary and stressful time (especially in the midst of COVID). I did not expect her to still be there when I came back from surgery but she had remained there with my baby boy and husband and had helped secure donated breast milk for my baby boy while I was in the OR.
She has an amazing ability to know what a person needs to hear or feel during the birthing process. Her ability to massage and touch during the birth process allowed me to remain without an epidural for a large portion of my induction. She provides a comforting and calm presence that as a highly anxious person I desperately needed. She also had a steady and positive way of not letting me give up so that I could reach my birth goal. During the pushing phase of my labor, hers was the only voice I wanted to hear.
Lydia is a super kind, respectful, helpful, and nurturing doula and person and I think anyone would be very lucky to have her. She also loves children and makes an excellent post partum doula. I would hire her again for any other births I may have in the future
