"[My doula] was a great addition to our family in the time we spent with her. My toddler was attached to her and was blessed to not feel a lack of attention with a new baby in the house. She made fabulous meals and laundry was always done and was great to have the extra hands around the house, to kids classes and grocery shopping. She was resourceful and I really liked how she genuinely cared for the kids."
