“We hired Paradise Coast Doulas a few months before I had given birth. Meagan and Amy both came to our house separately to introduce themselves to us and we knew immediately after meeting with each of them that they would be the perfect fit for us and our needs. We primarily used the overnight service with Amy. I can tell you she showed up early for every shift with her sweet smile on her face ready to give a hand with whatever needed to be done. She’s extremely reliable and worked for us many weeks not even requesting a day off. She is truly dedicated to her job and you can see and hear her passion when you meet her. At every feeding, every 3 hours she would make sure that there was plenty of snacks for me to choose from. She enjoyed making homemade dishes that were always our favorite! We adore Amy and were so grateful to have her in our home starting the first night we brought our son home! She even took care of our large lab.
Meagan was used for day shifts as well. Her soft spoken voice was so calming to me. I was struggling with breast feeding and she always encouraged and supported my decision. She had great advice to offer to me and was there anytime I needed her for a day shift. She was very flexible as well. She is hands on ready to help with whatever needs to get done.
I’m so glad they were referred to me by another friend because they helped us transition a new born into our lives! We are extremely grateful both Amy and Meagan were a part of our sons first few months at home. They are a terrific duo!” Kelly,
“Niki and Meagan are amazing. We just finished our post natal visit and they really made my wife feel much better after she had been struggling with some Postpartum depression. They have been amazing during the entire process. Niki was essential in helping my wife tackle an all natural delivery of our nearly 10 lb baby. We truly couldn’t have done it without them. We highly, highly recommend their services. We both love Niki and Meagan very much for everything they did.” Daniel Goggin
“Nicky was instrumental in helping me avoid additional unnecessary medical interventions (epidural). She supported my husband and I throughout my long labor, at home and at the hospital. She also provided support before and after the birth. Her resources and knowledge has been a huge help. The meal planning and prep has made adjusting to life with a newborn considerably less stressful. Thank you for everything!”— Jane
“I vividly remember the phone ringing at 7:30am the first day I had to go back to work, one week after our son was born. My wife was in tears with her postpartum hormonal imbalance in full swing, not knowing exactly how to cope.Amy would start working for us at 9am that same day. Not only did she hit the ground running, but she brought a much needed balance to our home, which is crucial for first time parents, who have little to no idea what’s going on around them. I have no words to express how grateful I am for the support she has offered to my wife, reassuring her on what great of a job she’s doing and constantly reminding her of the better days ahead. The love and care she has shown towards our newborn son has been unprecedented. Looking back into those days, I can safely say that Amy is the person that every growing family needs by their side during the first few weeks of the little one’s life.” Theo K., first time father
‘My husband and I welcomed our baby in August 2016. To say that Amy helped us out and saved our sanity while she was with us would be a huge understatement. She came within a week of our son being born and literally changed our lives. I suffered from a severe case of postpartum depression and during that entire time Amy not only listened to me and let me cry on her shoulder but literally took care of my son and my house when I couldn’t pull myself together. She cooked my meals, she shopped for groceries, she rocked the baby to sleep, she tried every trick in the book to get him to stop crying, all while constantly reassuring me that I was a good mother and that things would get better. She also helped me breastfeed and brought me water at EVERY SINGLE FEED. I didn’t even need to get up. Before I met her, I thought I could do everything on my own. Boy was I naive. In other countries women all ban together and support one another during the postpartum period, but we don’t have that luxury here. I didn’t have any family close by nor friends who knew about babies, and my husband was equally clueless just like me. After meeting Amy I can honestly say that every mother needs a doula. Every mother DESERVES a doula. Postpartum life is just better when you have someone in your life who has a positive energy and constantly reassures you that you’re doing the best you can for your baby. I not only consider Amy to be by far the best doula I’ve met, I also consider her to be a great friend. Even now I still contact her from time to time to see how she’s doing and to tell her about how our son is progressing. I will never forget what she’s done for our family and I’m grateful that she exists in this world. She’s truly found her life calling in helping others.’
