Birth and postpartum doula services

Testimonials

Quotes Roxanne is an amazing post-partum doula. I had a medical condition that made nursing nearly impossible and with her can-do approach I nursed for over 3 months before switching to pumping. She came over to our home whenever a problem arose -- usually very late at night. Her practical positive approach kept me motivated to keep trying and she got me through the worst of times. I am sure she can do the same for you :) Quotes

Wonderful lactation support

Quotes We found Roxanne only 3 weeks before I had my 2nd baby, as I was looking for someone to help me through my first unmedicated labor and delivery. We met and I felt that she would be a great fit for my husband's and my personalities, to help us and coach us. I was excited that she was also a lactation educator, and would be able to help us through any issues with feeding after the birth. I was in touch with Roxanne through the early stages of my labor, and she was prepared to come at any point that I felt like I needed her. She ended up meeting us at the birth center, since my labor progressed faster than any of us expected, and my baby was born quickly after that. She stayed with us through the whole period after delivery, and made sure we had everything we needed. Quotes

Quotes My experience with Roxanne was a little unusual. We hired her a couple weeks before my due date. However, when I was already several days overdue, Roxanne had to go to the east coast for a family emergency. When I found out, I think Roxanne was more bothered by the situation than I was! She handled the change of plans in a very professional and caring manner. I know she never would have left if it hadn't been a true emergency. She immediately found us a good backup doula. I went into labor while she was away, and she routinely checked in with us, even at strange hours. She gave us good advice from afar. I was in labor fo 49 hours, and ultimately ended up with an emergency c-section. When Roxanne found out, her flight had just landed. It was 8 am, and she had been traveling all night. She came straight to the hospital to check on us. Quotes

Quotes Roxanne provided invaluable assistance during Sarah's labor and delivery. Sarah delivered at a birthing center and was attended by two midwives. Because of Roxanne's clear competence in labor support, the midwives were able to fall back mainly into a medical oversight role. Quotes

Quotes Roxanne was very professional and diplomatic in her approach to determining what a father might want to get out of a birthing experience. Her knowledge of breathing and massaging techniques were invaluable to helping me feel confident supporting my wife in her labor. I highly recommend her doula services. Quotes

Quotes Roxanne being a mom who had a VBAC I knew she was supportive but everytime I felt I couldnt do it she said " yes you can ". If it wasnt for her showing my husband what to do to help me I am not sure if I could have done it . I am so thankful for the help during birth but her lactation support after the birth was so invaluable. She knew her stuff and I am still happily nursing at 2 months 4 weeks longer already then my first. Quotes

Happy VBAC

Quotes Because of concerns of preeclampsia, my labor was naturally induced at our birth center. Roxanne walked the hallways with me for hours, motivated me to remain determined to have a birth center birth, and demonstrated various positions and pain management techniques that reduced my pain. When I was transferred to the ER after my son's birth to have my blood pressure monitored, Roxanne came and stayed with us for hours. Roxanne is very patient and gentle and knows a great deal about the labor and delivery process. I felt encouraged and well-supported by her throughout my labor. Roxanne was an amazing advocate for me and was integral to my positive birth experience. Quotes
