"I would highly recommend Cheryl as a Doula because she does life with her whole heart. She is a well seasoned mother of five with a sincere desire to help young mothers form a strong foundation, by assisting them as they learn to provide for their newborns and families."

Katrina Kingsley, RN with over 30 years experience working with children and families

"There are many reasons that I would recommend Cheryl as a Doula.  I have known Cheryl for about 15 years and have observed her in a number of settings.  She is a woman whose compassion, integrity and care for others around her is like no other.  She is able to walk alongside individuals and encourage, support and care for them while they walk through exciting and/or challenging times.  She has been a mentor to many young mothers and has a heart to see mothers and their families educated, supported, and encouraged. As a grandmother, I would want Cheryl by my daughter's or daughter-in-law's side during all the stages of prenatal and postpartum. As a Psychotherapist, I recognize the value Cheryl brings to her clients as she educates, assists, and supports them in the birthing and postpartum processes. I would recommend her to my pregnant and postpartum clients."

"Thank you so much for coming to help me as I transition to being a new mom...I don't think I would have pushed through it (difficult start to breastfeeding) had you not come to give me some breaks and encouragement. I will recommend you to all my Mommy friends and for my future babies! You are so kind natured, and I joke to everyone that you are like Mother Teresa ;-). You were such a blessing. You have no idea!"

"We were super lucky to have Cheryl at our birth. She was incredibly supportive & brought a lot of knowledge with her! All of my pregnant friends should check her out, you could definitely benefit from it! She attended my birth, and was a very calming presence. Having her postpartum has been the most helpful though for me, I have run into a few issues and it has been so nice to have someone to help me with things like breastfeeding, attending lactation appointments, etc. that most women need help with, but don’t have someone to go to. She replies to texts very quickly, and it’s really nice not having to make a call-especially since I usually have a newborn sleeping on my lap. If you are looking for a doula, I can’t recommend her enough."

"Just wanted to say I’m so so thankful for you. I’ve had a few friends have babies the last few months and make comments about their birth that make my heart hurt a bit. Glad you were there to give me a voice and help educate me!... Encouragement and knowledge go such a long way. And then the advocacy in the room!"

"Cheryl was our doula (we are first time parents) and she was phenomenal from beginning to end. Cheryl takes time to know and understand her clients and their vision for pregnancy/birth. She makes herself available to answer all sorts of questions. She is compassionate in times of worry; calm and supportive in times of rest; and is always advocating for clients (mom AND dad). Cheryl’s work enabled us to enjoy the pregnancy more thoroughly and her support during the labor process was tremendously helpful. It would not have been the same without her! Not enough words can be said about what a great decision it was to work with Cheryl! We certainly will again!"

"Cheryl was amazing. She provided so much support...asking for help has never been my strong suit. But with having Cheryl as our postpartum doula I was able to learn how to accept the help that I needed for myself and my family"

 "I just had my follow up OB appointment and Dr. B said, and I quote, 'I just want to tell you that your Doulas were awesome! I really believe that they made the difference between you having a vaginal delivery and not a C-section.' I could not agree with her more!!! ...I feel so blessed that God connected me to you."
