"Wow! Candace was able to help me ease my mind before I went into labor and really supported me like nobody else was able to. I am so thankful Candace helped me achieve my unmedicated birth I was pushing for. I struggled after delivery to get my son to latch and she even helped me easily get him latched on in one visit. She followed up with me many times and gave me a great amount of information without me feeling overwhelmed. I would definitely love support again from Candace in my next pregnancy. Thank you." -Christina R
" As a first time mom, I really thought breastfeeding was going to come naturally but I was wrong and found myself in extreme amount of pain and wanting to give up early on. The baby was having difficulty latching on and that made the process even more difficult. During my stay in the hospital, I was given few resources and was not really shown how to breastfeed and going home trying to learn it on my own was difficult. I was referred to Candace for assistance and thankfully she was available the same day and came over with pleasure. She was so warm and sweet the minute she arrived and was so good with our baby boy. She showed me the best ways for the baby to latch on, breathing techniques to help ease the pain and how to deal with my breast engorgement. I am grateful for Candace, though she came for one home consultation, she followed up with me weekly for a couple of weeks until i was making great improvements. It was great having her as a resource! I highly recommend seeing her if you have any questions or concerns about breastfeeding." -Ansam
"I do not know where to begin on how wonderful having Candace was throughout my pregnancy and the birth of our daughter, Charlie. I did not have a doula for my first daughter, and having Candace by my side the second time around was such an incredible experience. Candace offers a top notch level of support and care that I was so grateful to have. Candace has such an incredible energy about her and is very calming, knowledgeable, professional and sweet. She was so helpful in providing advice and answers to questions I had, and was always checking in and following up. I really felt taken care of every step of the way and I can truly say the help and support she provided was invaluable. During the delivery, I felt so calm and empowered having her there to help push me, it was such an amazing birth. It was an experience I will never forget! With her help, I was able to recover so much quicker and easier than my first, which I was very thankful for. I highly recommend Candace if you are considering a doula, she is the best there is! -Erin H.
"Candace is amazing! I hired her for a lactation visit, and she was able to meet me last minute. My two week old baby was not latching on correctly and would fuss and cry whenever I tried to feed her. Candace came and was so helpful, showing me exactly how and what I should be doing to calm my baby beforehand so that she would latch on. She also gave me helpful tips on sleeping and all things baby. She is a miracle worker!!! Highly recommend her for any new mommies. I also attended one of her fourth trimester mommy groups. Can't wait for the next one!!" -Amanda C
Candace is hands down the best doula you could ever ask for. She supported me every step of the way, from my pregnancy to my labor to postpartum. My partner felt just as supported as I did through the process and found her visits instrumental in understanding the birth process. Candace takes the time to help you and your partner make informed decisions, without introducing any of her own bias. Her caring and gentle nature makes her the perfect doula. During labor, she walked us through techniques to help with pain as well as to help the baby progress through the birth canal. I would recommend Candace to anyone, even family members. I am confident you will absolutely love her. -Sam L
