When I first met Abby I had a list of appointments to meet with various doulas. I met with her first and immediately canceled my other appointments. Not only was she so excited about my pregnancy and birth plan, but she was genuinely warm and caring. We really connected and she offered me great advice as far as pain management and reading materials. Once we met and discussed my birth plan she was completely optimistic and ready for action! Abby text me at least once a day and attended a few appointments with me so she could get up to speed. When the big day finally arrived she met us at the hospital and my Mom immediately fell in love with her. She was a great emotional support system for my husband, Mom, and I. She never overstepped her boundaries and the labor massages she provided really helped me cope with a long labor. I will always fondly remember that she was holding one leg while my husband held the other, all the while providing the encouragement I needed to stick to my birth plan. After we welcomed our baby girl Abby assisted me with learning to breastfeed my baby and even gave me a ride to a postpartum appointment. I would recommend Abby to anyone, as she genuinely cares about Momma and Baby's well being. She has dedicated her career to assisting women through their most powerful moment, and it takes a strong women to help other strong women!
